During my thinking process of what to build, I thought it would be more fun to go eastern themed with this challenge. I was given permission from Lee, so I decided to go ahead with it. This blade is also known as the Wakizashi, not to be confused with the traditional Katana, which is much longer. The Wakizashi was a shorter sword, meant for high ranking samurai in feudal Japan. The Wakizashi was built for close quarter combat and hand to hand fighting. The sword I built has a blade 12.5 inches long.
A close up shot on the handle, which was far more challenging that I first thought it would be. The string at the end(yes, it's from Lego)can be tied to a belt, or around a belt loop.
And a shot of the blade, which, as I said before, stands at 12.5 inches in length.
And last but not least, the shot proving this weapon can be held in someone's hand(in this case, my hand.)
All in all, this challenge was really out of my comfort zone, but really fun to build for. I would like to wish my opponent, Braydon, good luck, and thanks to the judges for taking their time to do this competition. And please remember to rate and comment!
