A chipped vibroblade for The Chipped Vibroblade
« on: May 01, 2016, 09:55 PM »
Hello comrades, I've gotten a very good base for my armor (WIP will come soon) and now it's time to work on armaments, as my name suggests I want to build a vibroblade; my question is, what materials are applicable and con safe?

Not metal. I'd suggest MDF (medium density fibreboard). You can find it at your local home improvement store.

MDF is a good choice, I agree. Another option I've tried is PVC pipe. You just trace the template on the pipe, cut it out, and use a heat gun to flatten it. Sintra works, too, and just plain wood as well.
The big thing is it's best not to use metal, like Natan said, and don't sharpen it too much :)

Thank guys! Wasn't sure about wood at cons but I'm very happy to hear that it is, I've made countless wooden swords in my life so this will be very very fun!
