You could of course jump over to Jinx and buy the official foam sword for £17.99 or you could download, cut out, fold, glue and create your very own 17.5 inch sword in no time at all for free.

How to create your own Minecraft Iron sword?

First you will need to understand the sword parts

Download and save the printable A4 (210x297) Iron sword templates to you computer.

Print Out the Minecraft sword templates.
NOTE 1: for best results use quality card or photo paper with high gsm.
NOTE 2: use matt card for the pommel, grip and cross guard.
NOTE 3: use glossy photo paper for the blade & edge.   
This is what I recommend using for a quality epic finish but it's up to you what card to use.

Cut Out the papercraft templates with scissors or a scalpel, whatever you prefer, just be careful and take your time.

Fold all the tabs and guidelines, again take your time and fold as neat as you can.

Play around with the folded sword parts to get a full understanding of where the parts go before committing yourself to glueing.

Once happy you know how to put together go ahead and glue.  I used PVA glue and a 1/4" brush.
