Cloud's AC Sword : Organics

The project continues... I've got most of the construction work for Cloud's 2nd sword, Organics. It should be noted that the version of the sword I am trying to make will NOT have an Apocalypse (1st Sword) that opens in the middle, revealing the latticework within the sword. I just can't make it with the tools/materials/skills I have. (It would probably need to be made of metal to approach acceptable durability levels, and that, of course, would make it too heavy to carry around for any length of time.)

Here's the 2nd sword as I have it so far...



I've now hit upon a snag-- namely, I've built the hilt-control mechanism below the 1st sword so high that it's in the way of the 2nd sword. Needless to say, I'll have to rectify this before I can go any further...



Hey, nobody's perfect, you know...

Oh, and if anyone knows where I can buy tiny metal ball and socket joints, (like the ones you see on those fancy pens mounted on marble slabs, or something similar to that, please let me know. Thanks!
