After seeing, and scoffing at, the basic wooden swords in Peter Pan, I made swords for my kids. The top one is Lignum Vitae, blade cut with a band saw, with a tang (tenon) that extends through the hilt about three inches into the turned handle. Notch in the handle filled with twisted NiChrome and Copper wire.
Bottom sword is Bubinga, fuller on both sides of blade with a dremel, serrations with the top of my belt sander. Handle is 4 strand plaited leather. It is Dagger sized because my daughter is Hobbit sized.
