Making Supernatural’s Demon-Killing Knife

Back in the early seasons of Supernatural, a demon named Ruby showed up with a dagger capable of taking down other demons. When it was introduced, it was one of the most powerful weapons we’d seen on the series and once the Winchesters ended up with it, they didn’t let it go. The knife would make a great prop if you’re dressing as either Ruby, Sam, or Dean, and DeviantArt user Mother of Moths figured out how to make the dagger with thick cardstock. She used the following materials:

– 3mm thick card (or the back of a sketch pad)
– a craft knife
– pencil and biro (black)
– PVA (preferably a weather resistant one)
– 22mm width pipe
– newspaper and tape
– paint and silver spray paint
– sand paper
– a glue gun

You have to draw the outline of the blade on the card and add the symbols seen on the blade (Tumblr is a good resource for reference images). Then:

step 3.
Carefully cut out the blade with the craft knife (i almost cut myself multiple times, please be careful!) It won’t slice all the way through at first, so do it twice. make sure to have something underneath it so you don’t ruin the surface you are working on.

step 4.
Sand down the areas that are a little rusty and then start priming it for the spray paint, use the pva glue and give it multiple coats until it feels and looks pretty solid

step 5.
get the pvc pipe and put it over a source of heat (i used the hob) use a pair of tongs so you don’t burn yourself. and then put it down on a surface and press down with a cloth over it. After that, it should be a squashed pipe 🙂

step 6.
build up the shape using newspaper and tape.
