am looking at re building the sword blade using wire to attach the pieces together and filaflex (an elastic type filament).
The 1st piece has come out wonderfully. Printed at 240 degrees , 2 shells but with this type of filament you need to drop the extruding speed down to 20 mm/s and the travel speed to 70 mm/s. I am trying some rubber shoe glue to help with adhesion after I put the metal rod through the centre. After that will look at painting and hopefully finish with a photo. Its taken me a year to get back to this project , and hopefully will finish it completely this time.
