Hmm, this is a good idea for those who aren't able to get their hands on wood and able to spend the time to really cut out the blade and whatnot. :D I shall add this to my favorites for more to view. ^^

I've been trying to design an extendable Zabimaru for over a year. I never can get a good idea down on paper to warrant the cost of the supplies.

Thanks! It's for October Expo, right? My advice is to use pinewood because it's soft enough to be carved. Balsa wood is a little too flimsy for making a prop katana.

Where did you get that much cardboard?
I'm trying to make a Zabimaru for my cosplay but I just don't know where to get that much cardboard at.

It's the packaging that came with my dad's fishing rod, so I doubt you'd get one exactly the same. You can find lots of cardboard crates at the end of supermarket tills :)

I was actually planning to build Gin's blade with metal parts. Im using some robotic parts in order to make it shoot out and retract. I need some hydrolics tho..
