KaTrona: EL Wire + Katana

Spotted in the Adafruit flickr pool, this awesome project by Jason Beeland. He writes:

This is a wooden katana upgraded with aqua EL wire around the blade and guard.

This sword and five others were made and taken to Dragon*Con in Atlanta. There they received great response from other attendees with many asking where I got the materials. I gladly told them how to find adafruit!

While packing to leave a clever young lady dubbed it a “KaTrona”.

Neat!

  1. I was one of the six that built and carried these. Mine was red! They looked fantastic at the late-night parties:

    We’re already discussing how to make sturdier, more interactive ones for next year!
