I spent 500 bucks on this meme only for UPS to fuck it up during the shipping process. The Blade weighs rough 20lbs with attachments that can increase the weight to 30lb. I can neither get refund, replacement, or repair. How the fuck do I get this handle back on and have it strong enough the force of 20lb blade being swung. Wood glue? Mending plates? FUCK!

It's a 2x12 the guy cut with a jigsaw and ran over the edges with a router. From your pic it broke on a knot which means he didn't even bother to do the minimum amount of effort to make sure the board he used didn't have a knot where the handle would be. It should have been stronger if he just glued 1x2 oak boards to the rough shape and routed it bit then it would take more than an hour to make because he would have to wait for the glue to dry.twrhn

Is that what these training swords are for? If so, why is the weight important. Are they training to use a large heavy sword for any sort of real combat, or is it all cosplay, in which case I'd think appearance is all that would count. But OP paid 500 bucks for a simple board, and he calls it a training sword. I'm fucking at a loss to understand what is going on here.

Your best and only bet would to be what first post said.
I would tell you to cut the breaks off flat and straight, drill the largest diameter hole that the handle can manage to fit inside, make the hole as deep as possible too, even up into the blade area, you may have to buy a special long bit for that, and you'll have to be super careful not to blow out a side while drilling it. Buy a hardwood dowel, and wood glue. Fill both holes with wood glue. Pound dowel in as deeply as possible and don't worry about glue all over the place. Then attach the second half and clamp if you can. Allowing a few days dry time, but make sure to wipe away your excess glue, or you'll be sanding it off later.

I’m the seller. I’d like to address a few things. First, the sword was $299, not $500. OP payed $337 including shipping. It includes the attachable weights and hardware for them. That’s what the holes are for. All swords cut, planed, routed, drilled, sanded, branded and are given multiple layers of stain and protective coating. I have stood on the swords between sawhorses to test the strength and they don’t break. UPS throws the boxes around, even with fragile stickers on them, so when I send out hundreds of swords, breaks are inevitable.
I have replaced every single sword broken by UPS for free.
I’m not scamming anyone, I sell exactly what I advertise. Giant wooden swords. I’m not forcing anyone to buy it, and plenty of people make their own. Mine are the best.
The price reflects the cost of materials, gas for transporting everything, time it takes to make them, cost of renting shop space, tools and misc supplies, and paying my employees a fair wage. Not to mention making just enough profit to feed myself. Oh and everything is taxed.
If you’re mad about the prices, blame the federal reserve for printing so much money that the dollar isn’t worth shit anymore, not me for pricing accordingly to the market.
Same reason your $5 footlong cost $18 now.
As for the Asta sword, it’s called preventative pricing. The sword took 3 days to make, and I don’t want to do it again.
OP thank you for giving me the chance to make you another sword, I hope you enjoy training with it.

It's just made for swinging around not striking things. But usually the handles hold up really well.

However if you are going to fix it you'd have to use a metal plate on both sides of the handle drilled and bolted into place, but again there's no reason to eat the cost.

If so he's playing 4d chess because he inflated the price according to the web site and the supposed post from the site owner above. My own opinion is that OP started sincere, then tried to turn it into bait later on, and maybe the site owner posted even later, but not likely in my opinion.

I actuallyhad a HF woodlathe gifted to me years ago but never used.
Well I used it and just mostly eyeballed it and came out with a great set of clubs. I just watched a few yowtube videos on how to use woodlathe and pow, now I can do basic shit.
I also made a very heavy club out of a very dense mesquite log I had that had cured in the sun for a few years.
Just used a handsaw, hatchet, woodchisels, big cabinet file, and sand paper.
Fileing and sandpaper took the longest. It was well worth it. Some places want to charge thousands for a pair not including shipping.

Nice has your strength improved since wielding the blade? Been thinking of getting one of these to help me get in shape, at 350lbs I have to use a scooter to get around and think this might help not sure if I'll be able to swing it sitting down.

If you've actually read through this thread you will realize that OP is 100% serious and has already been given a replacement because he was too much of a pussy to go through with the charge back. See >>2744332

Op is the guy who makes the swords. He broke one, decided to larp as a nerd (probably wasn’t much of a stretch, probably posts on /fit/), and it probably paid off. I bet this drove a decent amount of traffic to his site and maybe even got him a sale or two
