In further preparation for the chain saw launcher, I moved the battery pack for the mini chain saw into the handle. It looked immediately like a sword!
So I decided to give it a go... made a hilt, and a pommel, then wrapped everything with 10mm paracord.
I also made a scabbard, from a bit of thick leather and the original plastic blade cover.
This looks very cool - and a cut from the saw blade would certainly be unpleasant...
