I am looking for a textured sticker roll or tape that is similar to the wrap that was used on Anakin/Luke's lightsaber in The Empire Strikes Back.:

Now, the unauthorized Star Trek model kit, "23rd Century Pistol" came with a similar bubbly, textured sticker to simulate the grating on the targeting sight:

Does anyone know anyplace where I can buy this type wrap, or at least does anyone know what kind of texture this is so I can have an easier time searching for it?

Ooh, is it made of metal or is it like a sticker? (i.e. made of something that won't cut your hands during dueling)

If your a duelist I wouldn’t duel with anything with a graflex clamp. It really hurts when hit..

Hamill himself suffered injuring his figure during esb

What I meant was, if I added it to a toy lightsaber, would it cut a persons hands to ribbons? This is because I've had painful experiences with metal tapes on past projects.

Eck, doesn’t sound like a fun time. Small cuts are the worst.. especially now with sanitizer being used frequently

Yep! I remember that ID, that was really awesome. I made sure to get some from that old site before it dried up.

The stuff on that phaser looks to be the same tape

The original Phaser used a crisp piece of thick embossed foil completely different pattern.
