Sword Complete!

So I bought a Tai Chi practice sword, removed the blade, and drilled/filed some holes to fit the original pins for the original blade. This blade is around double the length than the original so it looks much more to scale than the original blade, which made it look stumpy, and it's made of metal as opposed to plastic. Brighter LED can also be seen here.

30th November 2012


So lots of bits have arrived an I'm making a start! Bought the toy sword as I wanted a look at how the mechanism works for the hand guard. After having a look, it's actually rather complex, and rather than pour hours into trying to replicate the design, decided I would just use the toy as a base. I've disconnected the speaker, and replaced the LED as it was rather dull, and will soon replace the blade aswell as it was rather short. If I can modify the catch to work with the replacement blade is another question!
