Blade Length: 30 inches
Handle Length: 10 inches
Total Length: 40 inches
This sword is handmade with no power tools (except a drill) out of strip pine wood and its full tang. Ah finnaly the second sword of the Second Bleach Sword Project is done only 6 more to go!! Lets hope we find out its name so I can change the title.
I had trouble with the handle wrapping. To me every other part of the sword is to my satisfaction except the handle wrapping. Since I didnt have the correct colour handle wrap I couldnt use hockey tape which I was familiar with. So I had to try and use the ribbon handle wrapping. Now I spent hours trying to work out how to do it, the ribbon being very weak didnt help atall. Until I worked out how to do it through hardwork the secret is you have to make sure the knots are really, really tight. I mean close to breaking point tight, only when the handle wrap is really tight will the handle look clean. Since this is my first time using it, it isnt going to be perfect but I will improve!!

How long does it take you to make a sword ?
Looks pretty impressive to me!
Awesome job with all the Zanpakutos
... so yeah 8DD me luvvs it XD ...
Oh last thing lol yeah i'm interested in either a byakuya ulquiorra or grimmjow sword/zanpakuto.
please tell me how long it would take to make for each 1 [note i only want 1 of em lol] and the cost well ty and please reply truly hope you can make and sell me 1 I would treasure it forever .
Note that whole thing on ca.cosplay i replied on so ye lol (help me chioky your my only hope). rofl.
I love it, you're an artist.
i know it's not the best picture but it's the only one i have with the sword. just thought i'd share this with you.
you use a "random sword" eh? did you make such a sword O.O
I will be honest, I can barely see how good the handle wrapping XD, its good, but I a think I am more distracted at how pretty and bright you look O.O
and unfortunately i didn't make the sword. i don't have the time. i sort of sanded one that my brother bought at a convention and painted it. and i'm glad you like my cosplay!my mommy made it ^__^ i'll try and get a better picture of the sword. because i'm really glad with how it turned out.
If its time, then thats valid reason, any other reason, and well I am like an angry gather scorning their child XD
If your mother made it do you know how to sew?
None the less you still edited the sword which I admire more than some cosplayers who leave it completely alone XD
