Ao no Exorcist: Kurikara by Solvash Ao no Exorcist: Kurikara by Solvash
This prop wasn't listed in my journal because my friend who commissioned it from me asked me last minute two weeks before he needed it for the con he was going to. e - e
Needless to say, I charged him extra for the rush. Hahahaha....

Anyway, this was made with the same process as most of my katana's not much is different. Although this is the first time I've included a shot of how the sword disassembles, which most of my katana's can do to better emulate real life katana.

Also, due to the rush I wasn't able to get all the details just so. For example, I was able to include the little arrow/crown design that was supposed to be on the fuchi. =/ I also wasn't able to finish the sheath. =/ Ah well. The paintjob on this at least was one of my best, I thought.

If you're interested in using the template I drew out for the Kurikara's handguard I uploaded it here.

Ao no Exorcist (Blue Exorcist), Kurikara Kazue Katou

Edit: Whooooa! Over 2,000 views! Christ, this has gotten much more views than I thought it would. But, I'm glad ya'll like it. But I recommend you look at some of the other stuff in my gallery, too! I actually didn't spend as much time on this as some of my other props, you know. Hahahaha...

Do you have the measurements of each individual piece? (other than the hilt) I too am cosplaying as Rin and making the sword seems easy until you have an 80% chance of screwing up XD

Sure! Although this may be a bit complicated.
Blade length: 29 inches (30 if you count the habaki, the blade collar)
Tang: ~8 inches
Blade Width: The widest part of the blade is at the base which is little over 1 1/8 inches wide and it tapers to about 1 inch at the tip. This is how most authentic katana are made and it looks nice. But it isn't necessary.

The hilt (you said other than the hilt, but I never mentioned those dimensions): 10.5 inches long, 1.5 inches wide, and 1 inch thick.

Feel free to ask any other questions. <:

I didn't take a lot of pictures while making it so I don't think any tutorial I make would be that great. But! You can check out Chioky's tutorials here: [link]
He's basically how I started making swords and it's relatively simple if you want to make a sword from wood.
You can also use the template for the guard I made, here: [link]
