Need help with first Wind Waker sword

Hello mates. I made Toon Link's first sword from the wind waker out of foam core posterboards, metallic paint and yellow duct tape. It is very fragile (I couldn't participate in any cosplay fights with it because hitting someone would do more damage to the sword than to the person). I am looking for advice on how to make a more sturdy one (preferrably not out of wood, I don't have a bandsaw). Any suggestions?
None of that was true, by the way.

Hello fellow Toon Link! What kind of weakness did you experience with your sword? If you haven't already, I would suggest modifying your old sword or making a new one with some kind of strong core inside like a PVC pipe or wooden dowel. However, if your goal is to whack people with it and not destroy the sword/your enemies, I would suggest carving it from solid foam. Look up techniques that LARPers use to create their weapons.
