Shouldn't the oathkeeper be less flat? Like Pikmin's:

Any suggestions on what kind of wood to use for Oblivion?
i already have the small scale size and working on the large scale one,
but can you possibly point me in the direction of light but sturdy wood?

where did you get the chain and connector? did you find one that was sliver or did you have to buy the yellow and paint it?

In all fairness I think Blight did a great job for the materials he used, even if it is flat. (Even tho there are countless flat Keyblades out there to boot). Plus Pikmin Link's experience with Props is way up there, and not everyone has that many materials or time at their disposal.

Kudo's to you Blight on Your efforts and Actually Posting a Guide.

Home Depot and the chain is all metal.


And I know it's a bit flat but the time I would have needed to get that level of shape would have taken another month or so of work, I rounded it as much as I could. I'm still new to prop making, Pikmin is where I aspire to be. Those blades are absolute perfection and I can only dream to be that good.

PS. Pine is semi sturdy and easy to work with.

Hmm, would I have to get one of those $150+ band saws, or could I just use something like... hand held from Home Depot (don't know what, I need help finding out what).

Cause those are kinda outta the question for me. As my parents wouldn't let me use anything like that. >_> Its gotta be completely non-power tools cept a drill.

First time making a Keyblade for me, and I plan on doing Way to the Dawn. Just need to plan out what I need to buy. ^^;

A regular hand saw will make it real hard for those details. I'd ask friend and family if they can do the cut out for you.

Thank you, thank you, thank you I really wanted to make one of these, and now i finally can.

just a question about size that I havent been able to find: in proportion to the length of the keyblade (I'm using a standard 40"), how large should the pieces surrounding the handle and the blade itself be?

Your tutorial rocks, I am eternally grateful for your skills.

Umm About 2 1/2 fist lengths to be able to hold it in both hands with some movement room.

Fast question.

What did you use to cap of the end of the blade that has the key head?
