I got the following message from a visitor:

Subject: Swords

You suggest to use cardboard to make a sword. Just thought I would pass on the way I have made swords in the past. I take a gift wrap roll, and flatten all but about 8 inches on the end. Cut a point out of the tip of the flattened area. Cut a circle to fit over the end to make the shield part of the sword. I usually fill the handle part with paper to strengthen it. Then I paint the blade silver and decorate the handle and shield part. If you have any questions feel free to contact me.
