Yeah a REAL prop is gonna be the only option here, a plug-in sword won't be very handy sad mainly cos of the angles, and the way u swing it etc, it isn't like a lightsaber, which is the same from everywhere smile

with the katana plugin, you could stab people with it like with the sabers, something that is hard to do with a prop
