    My current progress.. might need assistance.

    Hi there, Dave here,
    Well It's been a long while since my last actual post... or thread... or... whatever. Anywho, I thought I'd put it out there that I'm working on my custom mando right now and let everyone know about my idea. right now its a little rough... and kinda split into to ideas. It started as a western style think, somewhat like Cad Bane but Mando. I do med Mando armor and have a duster some pistols and a rifle. then I saw Saz's Celtic buckets. I almost cried , they are awesome and in my price range . needless to say, I'm getting one and probably get a standard from him in the near future. well that helmet inspired a new design entirely, based on the celtic influences on that helmet. that got me thinking of something radically different from my earlier design. no duster but a kama. no rifle but a vibro axe. light armor instead of medium and perhaps a JP. I will probably be scratch-building my Axe, but I'd like to know, does anyone use a swiffer wet-jet? all I need is an empty bottle. if anyone has one let me know !

    Thanks
    David

    I don't think we do in my house, but I can check with my mom, as I believe she uses them.

    Also, you're right, Saz's buckets look amazing... I also like his Krayt Dragon one

    ooh that sucks. I might just break down and buy the mop and the whole she-bang. perhaps if I clean my floor every day... hour... 5 minutes, I'll use the whole bottle. anywho, another thing that I've been thinking about is the pole. do you guys think I should go with wood or pvc pipe?

    Thanks,
    David

    I have been thinking about using a zibro-axe on a pole too. It is intiraly up to you what material you use.

    Hey, Dave

    PVC is going to give you more flex in your haft than wood will. It's up to you, though. How long do you want the haft to be? If you're going for a short handled throwing axe length then PVC would work fairly well. For something longer, I'd go with wood. It's sturdier and less likely to bend.

    another little bump is the blade. in many cons metal weapins are frowned upon... should I chance it and go with metal or go safe with some kind of plastic?

    very true, very true indeed. I might make a couple of different axe heads depending on the con. I know live steel is allowed at Dragoncon here. as long as its sheathed. but I don't plan on sharpening the blade.

    well boys, change of plans. I recently acquired an old crossbow and I'm planning to turn it into a bow caster. I'll keep the axe on the back burner though. pics soon!
