Sword for our niece

My niece has her third birthday and her mom asked me to make a sword for the piñata. It’s made from mahogany. The hilt is two piece with a half lap joint, and the pommel is held or with a dowel. I rapped the handle with a leather scrap and I wrapped jute twine under it for grip and stitched it close. Finished with sanding sealer just for looks, I’m pretty sure it will get beaten up over the coming years so I’m not too concerned about it.

Have a great day.

Cool, when I was a kid we just hit the piñata with a broom stick.
