The Living Legacy - Buster Sword by vvmasterdrfan The Living Legacy - Buster Sword by vvmasterdrfan
The Final Fantasy VII Crisis Core Buster Sword

I had the honor of crafting this sword once again :giggle: The last sword received so much feedback (My first DD :la:) that I was glad to accept another one to improve my craft.

I haven't take the full photos but I decided to upload this one because I liked how it came out. (Photo is taken at an angle, if you couldn't tell)

To keep the weight down to 6-7 lbs, the blade is made from Mat board layers.
The internal structure is very solid and allows for the sword's weight to transfer efficiently to the handle. The hilt base and handle are hand carved wood. The blade edge is wrapped in a sheet metal film while the handle is stained faux leather.

More of my work:


With my sculptures, I strive to obtain 100% accuracy in every possible way. I attempt to go beyond by selecting premium unique color choices and even enhancing details to my own designs. Out of love to the Square Enix family, it is my honor to craft such elite weaponry not only for my personal admiration, but for my fellow cosplayers, prop makers, friends, and fans. I would be nothing without my friends and fans. The intense hard work, sweat, blood, and tears that I put into making these is worth it. I hope that one day my talents and artwork may be recognized highly by others. Thank you.

That is just awesome. Your other weapons are too! 7lbs... I wonder how they swing the sword around so easily, if it was a proper sword. XD

Ok I'm sure I'm understanding this wrong but are you saying that sword is only 6-7 lbs.? My runt of a cat weighs more then that if true!
Reply
:iconvvmasterdrfan:
vvmasterdrfan Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
It indeed does due to my internal structure solution and selection of specific materials :D My previous sword was 6lbs and 10oz according to the postal service when they weighed it
