Bloodborne (Video): How to Make Your Own Cosplay Saw Cleaver

“The saw, with its set of blood-letting teeth, has become a symbol of the hunt.”

The Saw Cleaver is one of Bloodborne’s most popular starting weapons. Partially, it owes its popularity to being featured in the game’s cover art. However in addition to that, the weapon has earned a reputation of its own for its ability not only to strike with lightning speed and power, but also to stagger a vast amount of the game’s opponents.

The Saw Cleaver’s in-game description reads, “One of the trick weapons of the workshop, commonly used in the hunting business. This saw, effective at drawing the blood of beasts, transforms into a long cleaver that makes use of centrifugal force. The saw, with its set of blood-letting teeth, has become a symbol of the hunt, and only grows in effectiveness the more grotesquely transformed the beast.”

If you’re considering going to any conventions dressed as your beloved Hunter, this weapon would be an excellent choice to bring with you.
