My son kept on nagging me for a play sword whenever we were in the shops, so one day while watching Thundercats with him I had a brainwave and this was the result. Needless to say the sword went to bed with him that night, after he was sleeping I removed it and the next morning he opened his eyes and his first word were: Where is my sword. He has broken it in half since then by practicing on one of the trees outside. I carved it on the beltsander after cutting out the basic shape with a jigsaw. 19mm Plywood.

-- Create, create, create create. It makes my blood flow. And what better material to use than wood, you can repeat the same object 1000 times and none will look the same in natural form.

Glad that your son got his sword, have been wanting to do this for some time but wish to make a pair which may be used for sparing and need to do some research. Sorry to hear that your son’s broke… Thanks for sharing..

”Where is my sword!” Love it.

Tell your son he has a VERY cool sword, apparently hand forged by the very best wooden swordsmith in all the Seven Kingdoms’ (aka, the neighbourhood) ; – )

Good on ya Vip3r74. I can only assume, based upon it’s popularity, that you plan to smith up another sword?Perhaps, a shorter and wider bladed Roman Gladius

to avoid the same fate as the previous longer broad sword which, evidenced by the second photo appears almost as tall as your son!

Make sure you share pics of your sons new ‘dragon vanquisher’.

Warm regards,

Buck.

You had me chuckle now, thanks for good advice. It was quite long yes but fortunately light enough for him to handle with ease. The pick looks good, definitely going to attempt that one. Will post it.

Thundercats Hooooo!! Man I loved that cartoon as a kid. The new version just doesn’t have the same effect on me. I cant wait until my son wants some cool toys like that. Way to be Dad!
