The Vorpal Blade (snicker-snack!)



Kate colored this CTR shield in Primary. (CTR stands for "choose the right.") She wanted to cut it out and put a handle on it, so I took care of that for her, gluing it onto a cardboard backing first to make it stronger. Then she wanted a sword to go with it. I suggested that she should talk to her dad about a sword, since he could probably make one much cooler than anything I would come up with. The result: cardboard and duct tape falchion.



Doug decided the sword should have some runes. It says, "This end into dragon."

That is awesome.

And on the handle it should say: "Stab with other end" or "See other end for usage instructions" ... also in runes.

Holy cow! That is awesome. Also, a direct quote from my Nathan, who is just a weeeeeeee bit obsessed with Medevial-ish weapons:

Mom! Can you make me one of those!

(I'm afraid I got an F in Runes. And in sword making.)

LOL! It's always good as a sword maker to put instructions on your swords to avoid potential lawsuits. ;)
