2 wooden pirate swords by deathatsix 2 wooden pirate swords by deathatsix
heres 2 wooden Pirate swords i made a little while back.
the blades are wood painted silver, the hand guards are pollished alluminum, the handles are wraped, one in leather and the other in rope with electrical tape covering it, and the end caps are stainless bullet nuts.
just thought i'd make them for a pirate halloween costume or just for play. eh... their fun, light weight, and i've even fooled some people who thought they were real.

i really don't have the time at the moment to make a tutorial. it is simple tho. just get a piece of wood at the hardware store and a piece of aluminum to make the hand guard. cut the wood to the total length that you want the sword to be then cut off the tip in the curve for the tip. then using your hand as reference for length of the handle cut either side about equally for the handle guard to fit on. using whatever you can to get the job done cut the rectangular hole in the forward part of the guard after you bent it into the shape desired. then after that is kinda fitted carve down the end of the blade handle to a circular dowel shape to affix a nut to. also drill that size hole into the butt end of the aluminum guard. place the guard on, glue the end and wind on the nut to the butt. then wrap the handle with leather cord or something.
hope that helps a little. sorry i don't have the time at the moment.

What kind of paint did you use? These are wonderful, by the way. I'm trying to help my sister make her Halloween costume (pirate=awesome) and no one here really seems to state what materials they're using, specifically. <:) We're planning on making just a cardboard sword, though, since we don't have access to any metal working or major shop tools. Any information would be greatly appreciated!

first, Thank you. :)
I used silver spraypaint. it was really easy. you could use cardboard and duct tape as a last minute deal. you could wrap the handle with black string or shoelace. i'm full of info. just ask.
