Sword Art Online: Elucidator Progress 4 by loveshina Sword Art Online: Elucidator Progress 4 by loveshina
The base coats of paint finished here, only a couple small things left to do! I'll start working on the sheath after I spray the clearcoats and wait for that to cure.

How to you carve the shape like that?

If you look at some of my other pictures, you'll see that it's three layers, one core for the blade, and two hilt pieces that are shaped separately with files then glued together.

Thanks. Appreciated that. But one more question. what kind of cheap saw would be better to cut that sword shape? and to make it smooth, what kind of tool would i need?

For shaping, a file set with a rasp can to just about everything, some of the tighter spots can be more difficult, but I used files for most everything here, also sandpaper, namely 220 and 400 grit. A dremel is also amazing if you can get one. As for cutting, A coping saw and a hack saw are great. Here's a good tutorial on here I found a couple years back that uses just hand tools, [link]

Do you take requests? I mean, if I gave you the drawing of a sword (with all the angles and details) would you be able to do it? Or is it to much? :S

I should be able to do it as a commission, but not for a while. I've got alot to finish up already before I open for that. If time isn't an issue then I should be able to depending on the design.

What is the Length of the Elucidator?

I'am Planning to make an Elucidator and a Dark Repulser out of a Cardboard Box o.o and in 2-3 months I'll make it of wood then next year me and my dad will make it out of metal.

For mine I made it 30" in the blade and about 10" in the handle. I sized it for myself since I'm so short (5'5"), so I tell everyone that asks me that if they're a bit taller, spring for maybe 45"-50" overall. Generally a longsword style sword of that length looks kinda silly for someone who's around 6'.

zelphyr95 Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2012
Oh ok hmm...

Maybe I'll make it 100cm total of the Elucidator

20cm Handling and 80m Blade

Ok thanks for the Reply :D

It's poplar, and it's incredibly light, less than a pound.

I've been asked by a few people, and a much a I'd love to, I don't really have the time or resources to make many of these by hand. As for maybe molding and casting them, I'm concerned about the legality of it.

Well, i was bothering about the round detail of the Elucidator. I think its hard to cut.

You can do all this with just a rasp and some kind of saw, but it's not easy even when you have power tools.

Thanks! Good luck with yours, the tutorial might take a bit, I've been really busy lately. And i plan on bringing mine to a con, It depends on the con but most are fine as long as it's not metal or overly sharp.
