Step 4: Clean the edges of the sword using the sandpaper

Sandpaper is the next material that you need, sand down all the rough edges. Since the common sword that we know is sharp, so we will sharpen the edges using the sandpaper.

Step 6: Paint and put the accents on to the sword

Get the gray primer or silver and black paint, it would be easier if you use a spray paint to have a quick finish. Let each side to dry and proceed to put the accents and accessories. I would love to put some gems to make it more magical. Make some final touch and let it dry.
