Anyone have any suggestions for the best way to make jarnbjorn? My initial thought is to make the axe/metal part from foam and attach that to a real wooden handle but I'm open to suggestions if anyone has any.
Also, any tips for how to best distress a cape to look like Odinson's new cape?

As far as Jarnbjorn, it's made out of a spine of PVC, the Blade is a piece of Fir from Lowes and the profiles are EVA foam from Amazon. The handle is one solid piece of Hickory. A lot of grinding, sanding, sculpting and finishing, mostly with a two part epoxy, then a bit of paint. Voila'.
