Shinigami Death Scythe

I am cosplaying William from Kuroshitsujiand was curious if anyone knew a way to make his "death scythe" it looks simply like a long pole with a scissor type device on the top and handles. Any suggestions?

It looks like a tool known as secateurs, prunning shears (long-handles) or lopping shears.

The first step would be to study how these tools are constructed. Are you wanting to have it articulate and what materials are you comfortable working with? How realistic an effect are you looking to achieve?

For starters, the pole should be quite simple, use a dowl or PVC pipe for that, there are plenty of tutorials about on polearms, but as for the shears themselves, it really depends on what you have to work with and whether you want them to articulate or not.

At the moment nothing but plan on going to get stuff I was thinking a dowl or PVC pipe to use for the handle. Though someone gave me the idea to by some pruners and just try to replace the clipper parts with something "safe" and fake which sounds like a good idea so I can possibly have it be functional and I am willing to work with anything at the moment.
