http://www.dagorhir.com/gear/content/weapon_tutorials/aggelgorod_sword.php This is a basic cheap tutorial. However these kinds of weapons are only acceptable for NPCing.

 

Bonus points if you use Plastidip instead of cloth to cover it. You can also do https://www.forgedfoam.com/?product=reblade-kit but again, these kinds of swords are NPC only.

Also if you have never done this before, a word of caution that is not the simplest thing to do. Your first attempt is likely to be a waste of materials, and will likely ending up costing you more money than just buying one from a vendor.

 

I'd highly recommend you save some money and get a latex weapon. A recommended vendor: http://www.garbgeek.com/category/larp-gear/short-blades/ sells quality swordsword for 40-60 dollars. These are good for PCing as well and NPCing and they look great.

I know the feeling, I'm actually working on making a larp recurve bow and a naginata. The bow was pretty simple to produce, not sure on durability yet, but I think it should hold up. The naginata kind of has me a little stumped at the moment, but it's slowly coming to mind
