Also it was just faster to build it in my workshop in just a few weeks instead of farming it in-game for months, ha ha!

This little tool allows you to edit and lay out a 3D model and print the surfaces out on paper. To make everything a bit more simple I asked a friend to get rid of the skull on the back and front of the axe.   I usually prefer to start with the most difficult part of a prop – in this case the front blade, which I wanted to completely illuminate.
