Happy Stars Wars Day everyone! In celebration of May the 4th there is exciting news below.

First I want to thank everyone on the interest list and ESPECIALLY those that have submitted deposits in the last 2 weeks!

Second it is with great excitement I announce we are ready to proceed into the production phase!

I will meet with the shop early next week to discuss materials and the order. We will also inspect the final 3D print prototype to check fitment and tolerances on the blade for The Saber Trade.



Look for regular updates soon to include: real time updates of where we stand, the first aluminum hilt produced (looking at you JoeG !), photos and videos of the pieces while in production, as well as blade updates.





Also , anyone who wants to jump in on this run can be added while we are in production.



Thanks for the support everyone and May the 4th be with you!!!!

We are officially in the "tool up" phase!!! Today I was able to meet with the shop and the order has been placed!
"Tooling up" includes finalizing the design with a test 3D print ( produced by early next week), ordering materials (bits, 6061 aluminum alloy, screws, pins, d-rings etc ), and producing the first aluminum hilt.
The estimated time until the first aluminum hilt is produced will be 12-14 days.

Once we have the test aluminum hilt produced and approved, production will move swiftly.
We will provide tangible updates in real-time as things progress.

Stay tuned.

Thanks again everyone
(first post updated as well)

Hello there,
too late to jump aboard?

I just have a question about the blade holder, it seems to me it has already been asked but I haven't seen the answer, it will look like Hasbro or Paul Ozzimo creation?

Best regards

Raphaël

Hey there Rafite thanks for the interest and question!

There was discussion early on about accuracy vs structural integrity of the blade and it was decided as a group that screen accuracy was the way to go.

This is a long thread and its buried in there somewhere, but this is absolutely a great reminder.

Our blade holder (what I am calling “blade stem insert”) will be very close to the Ozzimo design.
Our emitter is recessed and the insert will look like the renders that you posted (Ozzimo).Below is an early test print prototype for reference, finalized version will be more accurate.

Regarding the Saber Trade blades - could someone clarify what is required for a DIY blade versus PNP?
