Making a Ancient Roman Foam Sword

This sword was built for my friend John Soares new movie JITNI Book of Lies. He wanted a ancient looking sword prop that he could also use as a stunt fighting weapon. He gave me his concept drawing and some photo references of real old metal swords . Join me on this journey taking EVA foam and turning in to a cool movie prop.
