X-blade by finaformsora X-blade by finaformsora
The X-blade from Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep. Made on commission for :icontheshadowcircuit: 

It took roughly a month to make. Solid poplar with an mdf filigree. 75 1/4 inch long and weighs 15 pounds.

Here's the tutorial: quitefranklybuilds.blogspot.co…

Sorry for the repost, but I found a large tarp for a background and thought it would be better than cardboard. Plus the lighting is a bit better.

Amazing.. beautifullly detailed and amazing..

the Grill from the center has a beautiful lighting and with the added of metallic pain has completely brought a realistic blade look.

the handles cooperating with the yellow gold and the silver metallic has a well balance of communication.

the most facinating piece about this is the blade tip itself...
how it reflects both a violet contour mixing with the gold was soo amazing that it almost looked like the real effect from the video game itself.

The handmade charm is very cute and simple. but the idea of using a clay has it's draw back since it sometime can be abit muddy looking.
but overall I know it is the only source of income to make instead of using lazer cut technology.
What do you think?

There is no doubt in my mind that Kingdom Hearts is the most popular game that Square Enix and Disney have ever made. This replica of the ancient and legendary weapon that predates the famous Keyblade we all know is without question the best I have ever seen. The time and energy poured into making this blade, and the effects that go with it such as the spikes, chains, and the Keychain, are shown in how wonderful said blade turned out to be at the end of the project. The creator of this weapon shoul feel very proud for their acomplishments, and they deserve nothing but the best praise.

Do you think the x-blade will return in Kingdom Hearts 3?

hmm... In order for it to be forged there would need to be an even force of pure light and pure darkness clashing together. Since Xehanort plans to attack the seven guardians of light with his 13 of darkness, it may be reforged temporarily while they battle and master xehanort and sora will have to fight for control over it. Maybe it will constantly switch between the two of them as it decides who has a stronger heart resulting in either master xehanort's skill winning and opening kingdom hearts, or sora's connections to everyone giving him strength to send kingdom hearts away. If that happens, the x-blade will remain incomplete and possibly harm/destroy xehanort enough to defeat him.

Surprisingly, it only took a little over a month. It's pretty top heavy though and I was barely able to life it with one hand without looking weird haha

Well, Keyblade wielders are chosen, so the Keyblades probably are lighter for them :D

Actually the squareness of the handle makes a sort of ledge for my fingers to grab onto to hold it in the right position.

All of my props are made on order or as a gift, so none of them are for sale. When I start casting props, I'll be able to reproduce them to sell.

okay if you do one for the x-blade how much would it be?

:iconfinaformsora:
finaformsora Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2014  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
IF I made a mold for the x-blade (which would be REALLY expensive), a plastic cast would cost around $800...maybe. I can't say for sure since I haven't cast the plastic for this trident I'm working on yet, so I don't have a basis for how much I'd need. I'm going to focus on casting my kingdom key after finishing some orders, which would help me make an x-blade mold if I decided to make one.

Vanitas could lift it with one arm, but he's an emo spawned from the dark side of the biggest piece of KH fangirl bait since Roxas who was floating in a void where said bait's Dive to the Heart was meant to be, so I'm not entirely sure what his deal is.

Still, I wouldn't have been surprised if you could only lift it with two hands.

I pick it up where the handles meet in the middle, but it's pretty top heavy which makes it hard to carry in one hand.

Impressive. Never thought someone would make a model of the ℵ-blade with a realistic tint to the wing-shaped boundaries attached to the two Kingdom Keys that make up the blade. I LOVE IT!!
