That is a beautiful looking blade.

Looks so realistic. But it doesn't look harmful in my opinion.

Hi, Maurice!  Love your work on this.  I'm about to start work on Gisen Yagyu's scissor sword from Hyakka Ryouran Samurai Girls and had almost the exact same method in mind.

One question though that I didn't see answered: how much does it *weigh*?  I thought about using 1" thick softwood planks because MDF felt heavier... but MDF is more easily formed; I prefer it as a construction material.  Thanks!

Thanks alot!

The Blade wheights about 900 gramm (1.9 pounds) so its not that heavy, actually I think it´s a pretty realistic wheight.

Personally I definitely prefer and suggest MDF over softwood planks. MDF is easier to machine and you get a smoother surface. The wood texture of softwood planks can cause difficulties in that. And if you seal it with resin it get´s more durable.

Oh crap, somehow I completely missed this reply, haha.

Thanks, Maurice!  I'll certainly consider that.  Like I said, I love how easily MDF forms, and I'm quite in love with Bondo, haha.  I'm sure I'll have more questions later, thanks again!

Another question.  Since you used a layer of resin- how long did it take to dry?

That depends on the used Resin, normaly there is a fast and slow hardener aviable. The fast hardener cures in ca. 20 minutes, the slow hardener in ca. 20 Hours. Iīm using the slow one.

Thank you so much! I just needed to know to see how much money I would need to save up from commissions.  They're probably available in a home depot or something, so it's fine.  I can't wait to see your future works :)

A couple more questions- sorry for bothering you!
I am trying to figure out how you did this exactly.
Okay, so you cut out the pieces from MDF wood.  Once you have the shape and try to make it smoother by using epoxy putty and eventually sanded that down as well.  Do you eventually spray primer spray paint onto the wood and then spray paint it with red or is it just paint for wood? After that do you use epoxy resin over the paint once it is dry? Thank you so much for answering ; -;

No problem, if there is any more question just ask :)
Yes after I cutted out the parts from MDF I sanded all parts in shape. After that I sealed it with Epoxy to make the parts harder and to get a smoother surface. Then Iīve covered all parts with expoxy putty to plain the last few dents. In between I sprayed primer on it so I could better see the dents and bumps.
When every part were smooth and clean I sprayed a last layer of primer on it before painting it red. I used normal paint for Wood, Metal and Plastic without clearcoat.

No, All parts were glued together so you can't change the handle.
