man, you’ve got me tempted to make one of these. won’t have much time to get it done before halloween (leaving for the rest of the week tomorrow). and i’m not sure i have enough leather. but this would be great for the office halloween costume.
Didn’t get it done in time for this Halloween, but at least I’ll have it next year.
1/4" oak for handle
Medium grey acrylic for blade. Etched texture into blade edge then wiped in black paint to highlight.
Medium proofgrade leather for sheath…hand stitched.
Thought about doing some faux finishing on the blade but decided not to make it look too real.
