These look great, but I thought they were clearly machined aluminum on the original?
On the one recently auctioned by propstore the pommel is aluminum. But, on other hero and stunt props the pommels are sometimes plated cast resin. In this picture, you can see a plated resin pommel and an aluminum clamp section mixed and matched differently.

I want to offer as many lineage parts with this replica as possible and replicate the mixed media style of the original parts, so I had my original pommel duplicated.

Here are some photos and videos of the cast from original plated resin parts in all their perfect-imperfect glory :)

I don't know about you guys, but I'm excited to be doing something a bit different to the majority of pristine replicas out there. I'm going for the walked off the set feeling to these.

Loving the progress on this. And thumbs up to “perfect-imperfect”—I’m not a fan of sanitized! Can’t wait to see how these turn out.
