I am sorry, make blades from tin cans? Cut it out with what? Why, so you can cut yourself when making it and playing with it?

It's much more realistic if it can actually cut something.

Use a heavy duty scissor or small metal snips. To "unsharpen" the edge, hit it with a rasp. I've had no cuts or other injuries doing this.

I have made spear tips with aluminum foil, covering with superglue to add some stiffness. Might not work for something that sticks out like a pole ax or halberd.

Toothpaste tube material probably would be good.
