    I was watching Cirque du Soleil with the wife and this idea popped in my head for some reason. I bought four drifts and and fucked one sword trying to do this.

    this one turned out very nicely. For now I'll call him and the sword, Buhawi. Buhawi means tornado in Filipino.

    that is pretty cool, and makes for a better use of the floppy sword

    That sounds very painful.
    Anyway, that's an awesome sword. It does look like Ivy's sword in Soul Calibur. Except with an awesome robot samurai attached to it.

    Thats a wicked cool sword. I dig it. The name Buhawi is very cool. I do see that it does look like Soul Caliber's Ivy favorite weapon or that Bleach character's sword does the exact same thing, but his name escapes me.

    So did i!

    Except i thought it was Figma Sygnum's sword, but that's beside the point.

    Still just about as practical as Sygnum's, but looks cool regardless. :)

    Thanks guys.

    You guys could probably do the same thing with the figma sygnum sword. although the cut looks more intricate since its curved.

    I used a twisty tie to do this. Removed the pastic from the metal part. painstakingly cut the sword then each piece was pierced through with a needle then assemble. You can adjust the length of each piece to make it look like its been pressed to become the whip sword.

    Sweet!

    It almost looks like the razor whip used be the "Wolf" Predator in Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem!

    To me it screams Renji Abarai's zanpakutō, Zabimaru from Bleach
