Izuru Kira's Wabisuke

I have been thinking on this for a while now and I wanted to know. Has anyone ever tried to make a Zanpakutō that is sealed and then forms the Shikai version of it in 1 Piece?

This is the current design project I am thinking on for Kira's Wabisuke. Since his Zanpakutō is the easiest to do this with. The only problem I am snagged on is when it forms the Shikai state I need it to lock into place instead of having it free form. I have come up with a few Ideas to get it into the lock. But alot of the Ideas would make the sword very brittle instead of strong to hold which I am looking for.

I already have the design set for Renji's Zabimaru's Shikai form. But It would just be in the seated form. Not an extension form.

But the main Project is Kira's for the moment.

Any prop designers have any Ideas on how to go about this?

Ok, I'm sorry, but looking at those reference pictures and reading your first post again....I still have no idea what you are asking.

Are you looking for a materials suggestion or a way to attach pieces of a prop you've already constructed?

Quick paint explanation, but it's probably overly complicated, hugely out of scale, kinda ugly, crude, and frustratingly illegible(the paint thing that is). Basically you make the sword, cut at the 90 degree angles, add hinges so it can bend, create a spring type thing and add it to the main sword piece that's attached to the base, and attach that to piece springing off perpendicular from it. Enables it to fold, but also to spring into shape when needed. Hope you can read/understand the picture, because it explains it better than I can put into words. it only lacks a tip piece, which shouldnt be too terribly hard to concoct something up for

I apoligize again. I haven't had time to update the reference with the design drawing. (Don't have a scanner)

And the main problem/question is during the changing phase for Wabisuke. What I have designed is a double width Katana that will pull 1 side up to form the Hook.

@k4is

Wow your design layout is exactly what I have lol.

But the only snag is how to keep it in the Shikai State. I have been debating using a wire lock or cut a little bit off the primary sword to make the lock.

Sorry I haven't had alot of explination on this since I haven't had alot of time to check on this and update it
