While Finn is famous for his multiple swords spanning the series. Jake does actually own his own sword. So why not add it to your collection to show you really are an adventure time super fan.
After reading about all the major features below, do yourself a favor and go purchase the model so that you can bring this legendary weapon to life and I can continue to make model such as this
Embedded Blade and Hilt
As with most of my sword designs, I allow the blade and hilt to slot into the handle. This makes for a much stronger print that is far less likely to snap in half. Had I left the blade or hilt attached to the hand guard, it may be easier to print as a single print, but it introduces a large stress concentration at the meeting point. This stress concentration coinciding with whatever your infill decides to do, can easily cause a hilt to snap off in your hand.
An additional advantage of the embedded blade and hilt design, is that it is far easier to paint their individual colors without the need for painters tape. Similarly, aligning the pieces together doesn't require some clamp wizardry during the glueing process.
The pommel of this sword is a skull in that classic adventure time style. The pommel is threaded to match the hilt, so it does screw cleanly onto the hilt.
For the sake of ease of printing and assembly, the hand guard is all one piece. This means when painting the iris and pupil of the eye, you're probably going to want to use a steady hand or painters tape, just be aware.
Unfortunately, I have not yet gotten around to printing this model myself, but if you decide to acquire the sword that not even the adorable Tree Trunks could acquire, feel free to send me pictures of your builds to stick in here!
If you are looking to create you own models like this one feel free to checkout all of my tutorials on 3D modeling and prop making techniques.
If you are looking to purchase the model so that you can print your own you can find it in the store.
Lastly, make sure to check back in every once in a while to see what I've been working on
Thank you for your time
