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:…

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.

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.

Wow! Imagine taking that behemoth to a convention!
finaformsora Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2014  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
yeah, it's pretty frickin heavy, though. I could barely lift it with one arm.

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.

hahaha yeah, two hands makes it easy peasy

Even though I haven't played Kingdom Hearts before some people have actually said it's a great game. I really like the key design!
