I'm working on a new blade, but the plastic I have for it is curved slightly. I am trying to use a heatgun and a weight to un bend it, but it keeps reverting back to the curve. Do you guys have any advice.

Heat it up, and shock it with some really cold water.

Maybe try using an oven?  See if you can find a silicon sheet to set it on on top of the racks, lay it in there for a good 30 seconds-1 minute, and give it a go.

Never got the bend completely out of it. But it is barely noticeable.

Need to bondo gaps, then paint. I am going to use a name from a book for the sword, and part of its description. A black blade, named retribution, with mercy and justice etched into the blade. Mine will have that, but will have a red edge to it. Mine is also a different shape.

The whole thing is 60cm long, the blade is 45cm, the width is 10cm I think, the edge is 2-3cm.
