I know this has already been posted, but I cant figure out the Katana by Kalei Anne Lindburg. I got everything up to step 12.

Hmm... when she made this diagram, it appears that she was new to diagramming... the symbols are all wrong! I'll try my best to help you

I think that insteed of using diagrams for a sword. It would be quicker to design your own one. a sword is a simple thing 1 piont and a hilt 1 quarter of the way up(ish). I think I will try this challange myself!

Here are some pictures of the finished sword. Here click the "next" button.
I am pretty sure that it is impossible to colapse this model flat.

Folde up along the horizontal crease going through what is almost the middle. then pleat the whole model along the vertical creases. Elis stretch the little flap along the creases (you have to pull out the flap a little in order to do this) then shape to taste.

Hope that helps.

Thanks Aznman!I am not so good in c.p and pleating but your post and pictures helps .
This is what I folded.Wrong is it??Image
I don't see the creases of the pleating on the c/p so I did it that way.
