The first of its kind, the mold for this sword was created from a 3D printed object with its source coming directly from Microsoft's game files. Each piece is painstakingly hand painted and finished, what you get is an exact representation of the sword in the game at a rescaled. A metal core has been used to give the sword its strength with a hard foam latex outer layer.
The Type-1 Energy Weapon/Sword consists of a curved hilt, housing an energy storage module and a device for projecting the plasma which forms the blade. The actual blade is composed of two partially ionized 'blades' of free moving electron based gas held in a blade-like form by two small magnetic-field generators built into the handle of the weapon. This forms and contains the oval shaped, ionized blades for which the weapon is recognized.
