Hi! I'm attempting Erza Scarlet's Armorless version katanas and I believe your tutorials will be my guide as I attempt sword making for the first time O_O. Any suggestions to a newb? http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=...w=1152&bih=518

If you can use something stronger than balsa for the habaki and raised details I'd recommend it.

I used this tutorial to make the swords for my Zoro cosplay. I actually found this on DA, I didn't realize there was a post on cos.com.

My only changes to the tutorial were that I used Poplar wood instead of Pine and just used the excess wood scraps from cutting out the blades to make the tsubas, rather than buying MDF board.

Probably been asked already, but where can you get pine in the dimensions you specify? I've tried Lowes and Home Depot and let's just say they were less than helpful. even after doing the metric to standard conversions they still said they had nothing small enough thickness wise besides plywood. I was thinking of going way out on a limb and trying michaels, but I dunno if that's even worth my time. my other option was gonna be Hobby Lobby, but again not sure if it's even worth the trip there.
