The best thing to do is to rez any prims you need out before you start this will make it faster so rez one cylinder and 3 Spheres to the ground and now were ready to start.

**Ok so here goes**

The sword itself is 4 prims pretty basic nothing major or fancy but you can add allot more detail your only limited by your imagination I have  an example of a sword to help guide you along the road this is available inworld just message me Martin Glom

For this sword, you need 3 spheres and one cylinder

(1)-Blade
Right click any sphere choose edit from the pie menu and go to the general tab and rename to Blade then go to the object tab make the following changes.

Path cut B=0.250 E=0.750
Dimple begin and end B=0.200 E0.800
