But otherwise, very decent for something that's going to sit on the shelf. The nazi sign looking thing (whatever it's called), i feared to be plastic, but it's actually metal, which was a relief...






Also bought these har har har

I don't really care much about Ichigo's sword. I think he's too hax, and his sword itself looks, and is lame.

I would buy Urahara's sword. (It was there). And pretty well constructed. Just buy that and a cane version later on. And you have the whole set for Benihime-hime-sama. Cool sword, no doubt.

These swords are cool, but can't be used for real.
On this site there is all sorts of reviews about real swords. They've got videos of them cutting tree branches, mats, jugs... They were chopping wood with one once http://www.sword-buyers-guide.com/ They can get in most countries, except the UK (Uk is very law-happy :X)

if anyone actually did swing the replica around it would probably cause more damage in the house that wat it was bought for.

Talking Zangetsu creating!!

Hey, Im new here! You can probably tell... :S Okay I work at a machine shop and have all the tools of the trade and I'm pretty good with them I think :P I'm building Zangetsu (Big cleaver, black. With cloth that will wrap the handle and actually cover the blade) But Im not totally positive on the dimensions. And its going to be strictly deocorative. I was thinking since it's been said that hes the one with the sword as tall as him, that it's gotta be about 5 foot 8 inches. And by looking I'm sort of guessing it's about 8 inches wide. I plan on using 3/16 X 8 flat bar. If anyone has any changes or suggestions on what would make it more accurate let me know. Thanks!

It seems all the Ichigo's bankai replicas use paint... But is it possible to use oxidation to get the black colour? I hear if you cover a steel surface with some sort of (flax?) oil and set it on fire, it will become nicely black. Or will it still be all shiny, while the bankai is supposed to be dull? Would still be more legit than paint though IMO :P

steel doesn't oxidise, but aluminium does. obviously you don't want an aluminium sword (same reason why i can't have a cheese claymore), which is a pity, because anodizing aluminium is a really nice alternative to simply painting it.

you could powder-coat the steel, it would be the next best option, then coat it with a nice clear coat (just like on my bmx), and that'll give a nice scratch resistant coating that'll also have a nice sheen to it, too.

that tensa zangetsu looks real nice on the first page, but i can't help but feel the hilt guard looks a little plastiky.

ichigo's shikai zangetsu is really just an oversized kitchen knife, so i assume it'd have the same dimensions, too, asides from the handle. get an idea of how tall ichigo is, grab a picture of him and a regular kitchen knife and blow up a regular kitchen knife in photoshop to match ichigo's height. that should give you a rough idea of the dimensions. it's not accurate, but bearing in mind the anime and manga won't be drawn perfectly to scale, so you have to make some assumptions

i did the above when i was building an rc car chassis and needed a size reference

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bluing_(steel)

Quote:
Bluing is a passivation process in which steel is partially protected against rust, and is named after the blue-black appearance of the resulting protective finish. True gun bluing is an electrochemical conversion coating resulting from an oxidizing chemical reaction with iron on the surface selectively forming magnetite (Fe3O4), the black oxide of iron, which occupies the same volume as metallic iron.
It appears that covering the surface with oil and setting it on fire might be a bit different though:

Quote:
If brought to the right temperature (270-300C), the oil residue (including the burned carbon in the oil) bonds with the surface of the metal, giving the armor a dark, glossy finish.
