"Build your own Katana"
This model comes with multiple options for the blades, handle and guard.
The entire blade comes out to around 5ft. If that sounds big, what do you expect, its a FromSoftware game.
For the blade, you can choose to print all the pieces with the gem included into the blade or print the blade and gem inserts separately. By printing the Gem's separately, this opens the door to some fun possibilities. The Gems can be more easily painted to be a separate color than the blade (if that's what you want), or you could even cast the gem's in resin before attaching them to the blade for that wow factor. Additionally the Gem's are sliced along more natural boundaries which will help cover up the seams on the blades when you finally assemble the blade.
Similar to the blade, the guard comes with an option to print with the Gems or without
Lastly, the handle comes with an option for both wrapped and unwrapped. This allows you to wrap you handle yourself with actual cord for that more authentic feel. There are plenty of easy, quick YouTube tutorials out there for those who are curious on how to do this. (This is why the handle without the wrap has a hole at the base, it is needed for wrapping)
Optimized for Assembly
Each piece of the katana comes with a way to fit into another piece. Additionally if that is not possible, easy to connect, oval-shaped pegs are perfectly toleranced for easy/accurate assembly. Additionally all peg cavities are coned to ensure that no extra supports are required for these internal volumes.
After some requests, I have added a scabbard to the files. The scabbard is visually simple but is part of the weapons in-game identity, so I included it for those who wanted to print it. I made sure to ensure there was enough spacing to comfortably but securely fit Moonveil and all its gemstones.
All my models are designed with a focus on hidden seams, ease of assembly, little to no support printing, and accuracy in mind.
If you need any help with the printing or building process, or you just have a prop you would like to see me do, feel free to email me.
