Base is a thin beechwood board (fruit box), one layer for the blade, three for the guard, hot-glued together.
Handle slabs are sanded our of pine board.
Next, the blade, guard and pommel are covered in Worbla (BubbleStar thermoplastic sheet, to be exact).
Following that, the handle is stained, fitted with rivets and wire wraps.
Then the blade was sprayed with a shiny metallic paint, which after a lot of cursing I had to blend with a little flat black. Final shading was done with a marker, using the ancient technique of finger-rubbing.
