Easy shoehorn made from bamboo

Today I made this simple shoehorn from a piece of bamboo I had lying around.
I made it in the shape of a stylized sword, similar to those made of foam rubber used in a children's play fighting sport called "chanbara" here in Japan. 

5 cm diameter section of bamboo

Bamboo is split with a knife, the thinner piece on the bottom was used

After shaping with a Dremel tool and sanding, this is the final result.
I posted a tutorial of this design on Instructables.com and it was featured on the top page of the Living category, (Jan. 11, 2011), and it was featured on the front page of the web site on Jan. 14, 2011.
For detailed instructions, check out the tutorial at the link above.
