Yamamoto's Sword Tutorial by red-cluster Yamamoto's Sword Tutorial by red-cluster
Finally, I put together a step-by-step on how I made the sword for my Yamamoto cosplay. ^^ Sorry it's not very detailed. This is how I did mine and I like to find the easy way to approach making things(as long as it looks good in photo, right? 8D )

For more intense sword work, I recommend you to look at *chioky's tutorials on sword making: [link]

For how to handle wrapping, I followed this tutorial: [link]
Although I used a different wrapping material.

Finished product and more info on this sword here: [link]

Hope this helps people who want to try making similar props! :D Good luck guys~

Thanks for the tutorial! I plan on constructing a sword, but I was a bit apprehensive on how to approach it. Im definately thinking a wooden base built up with foam. (Ive never taken on a project like this before!)
