I like this image because it emphasizes the parallel between Dirk and Dave. Dave uses 1/2 bladekind while Dirk is bladekind. Its like Dave got half his neck cut off whereas Dirk’s was cut entirely.
I made mine out of wood, though it’s only in the broken stage. If you’re looking to make it have the ability to switch between working and broken you’re probably going to need to use different material for the blade. I don’t think mine is too heavy but I have had commentary on the weight of it, you can definitely carry it around.
How I did it was I took two 1 inch and half thick boards, stapled/glued them together, drilled a hole on one end and stuck a dowel in it. Then I took a staircase knob, sawed off the top and bottom piece to make the guard and pommel. Then I took some thinly designed uhm, wood sticks and glued them at an angle for those spoke things.
would make sense because it’s kind of like the dad/john thing where dad caters to what he thinks is johns love for harlequins and pranks and whatnot.
It’s funny that you thought my knee high was a schoolboy outfit, but that was a good idea too.
