    The copper and brass were easy compared to the trouble I had cutting the blades for my gloves. I also only had some metal sheers and went with stainless steel for my knives. A REAL pain in the *; it gave me nothing but trouble all the way through. Especially when it came time to solder them to the copper. I can't begin to tell you how long it took for me to just get it to stay together.

    The worst part is that I want to make another for a short film idea I have in mind!
