Just bought this today for $50 bucks, it's surprisingly sharp and sturdy. Thought it would be cool to put on here. The Gauntlets are WIP just started them today, and by the way they're just to protect my arm from the back of the sword and won't look like spartan armor ( Unfortunately ).

I need one of these... for *activities*...

 

Thanks for sharing btw! I've seen Swords like this before, but not an actual Customer picture of one.

Here's a closer look, and you have a point, why couldn't they dull it?

Also the gauntlets will be painted dark green and black tomorrow.

 

Sorry for low resolution, it's an iPad 2 :)

I bet if you got a sander, or Knife block you could dull it. {:

Just a question did you buy the sword off of the cutlery show on TV? Because I saw one in there like that, if so is it a good buy?

Actually almost did, but I'm ok

 

Edit: The gauntlet is painted green now, I'm letting the second coat dry. You'll have a picture in about ten minutes.

So after procrastinated for like two hours, I finally finished the gauntlet (keep in mind this is my first time making something like this), so here's the pic!

Edit: forgot to ask if anybody could help figure out a way to attach it to my arm, I'm thinking of using Velcro but just wanted to see if anybody had a different idea

The gauntlet appears to be cardboard. Is that the case?

 

And if it is, then how is that supposed to protect your arm from a blade?

I know, I saw it. But if the back of the sword is sharp, wouldn't it be able to cut through the gauntlet? Cardboard isn't very blade-resistant.

Maybe, testing that out today, thank you for pointing that out!

 

Edit: I'm building a Halo inspired airsoft gun, wanted to see if anyone wanted to see my progress, (I haven't started yet still gathering the materials!) I'm hoping I can start this week
