Some friends of mine asked me to build this chainsaw for their daughter’s costume. She’s really into all that Japanese anime stuff. I did all the design work and construction, they did the painting. This was a really fun project to do and I hope I can do more in the future.

Wow, that’s a lot of detail for a Halloween prop. She’ll have the coolest costume on the block, for sure.

Great looking saw, and it is big enough that you could fit a small tape player to give it the real chainsaw
sound. You are giving me good ideas, thank you for sharing.

Really cool project, but your teeth are going in the wrong direction—no big deal, just an observation.

Hey that’s one cool build, I think I even know the character from anime, Black Butler is the show and character is a grim reaper.

That’s nice work on a fun job. How light weight were you able to keep it?

Thanks for the comments, everyone! :)

Yer right Geoff, his name is Grell Sutcliff. I never heard of it until they asked me to build it. :)

HillbillyShooter – I realized that, too, but I was trying to keep it as original to the anime character’s saw as possible, so that’s why the teeth are like that.

Soapmaker – It’s not that heavy at all, it’s definitely under five pounds. Most of that is in the body, so it’s no problem to carry around.

That’s pretty darned slick. ( Did you notice you mounted the chain on backwards? )
