Yeah, I kinda figured. I'll need to think of someway of making a normal sword then, but this will definately help me. Thanks again, great work!

It sounds like a full package to me, but the glue is pretty cheap.

the actaul number will be around 80-100 small sticks going rate for sticks tends to be 5cents each so the cost will be 5 or 6 bucks for the glue

I'm kind of curious as to what kind of glue gun you're using. Seeing as you use large amounts of glue ins ome of your projects,a low-heat glue gun couldn't be the most idea.

I'm guessing you're using something more industrial on the larger projects.

i have both a large and small gun both are craft modles i've used industrial ones in jobs befor, way too hot for my taste but doing big things with small guns isan't bad i built the buster sword with just a little one so if you don't just happen to have a big one its not like you have to go out and get one just for this kinda project

your work is inspiring, I love your gallery. It really makes you realize that you can make just about anything out of cardboard with patience and skill. Fabulous job on everything, and thank you so very much for the tutorial, it will come in very very handy.

That is so COOL! I'm collecting cardboard for my school anyways (we're making a great wall of china, chibi-ized). Hopefully there will be enough for me to make my sword. *Evil grin*
Thank you SO much for this information!
*bow*
