Update 1/30/21


Hey everyone,

We have just finished a second saber print for general fitment (see pics below), and we are working on some small tweaks here and there. These tweaks are related to minor part fitment and other small things to help make the process more streamlined for the machine shop. The machine shop has a project that should be over in the next week or two, and once that is over we are next in queue.

In honor of 100 people interested and your support for this project, we will randomly select one member from the list to receive one of the original test prints. Everyone on the interest list by Friday, Feb 5th by 8 PM will be eligible. By 9 PM we will have a video posted with the randomly selected winner, we will PM them for their information and shipping is on us.

Thanks all,
Slick and Malibu


UPDATED NEW INFO 1/13 EDIT:

Good news, we have finalized our design and we have added everything we need to the saber. It will be screen accurate both as a static prop and with a Saber Trade FX blade. Final renders below.
  1. Hollow 24mm tube down the hilt for electronics chassis
  2. 2.1mm charge port compatibility at the bottom of the grip
  3. hole for sound to escape
  4. 17x34x1mm slots for clear polycarbonate inserts (diffuser for 8 blade ports)
  5. hole for standard 12mm AV button
  6. proprietary adapter for The Saber Trades blade w/ screen accurate plug solution

We are working on a solution for the grip texture, we want to include some Talon Grip tape that will be laser cut to fit the lines. Or if you prefer, we will sand down the grips to be silver or even leave them black. And if any of you are wondering, yes the blade will overhang. ;)

Now that the design is done, we will be 3D printing prototypes and having the machine shop prepare to make the hilt. Once we have a working 3D printed prototype in hand, and a date from the shop, we will change this thread from Interest to Limited Run, and begin taking deposits.

Thank you to Valentine Costumes for help with the design along with The Saber Trade for helping with blades.

A lot of great things are coming together very quickly, and we are very thankful for all of your support!

Again, This is The Way!

Good question, this is not the final model, but it is close. We plan to have a design that is hollow for an electronics chassis. We will design a way to accept both a blade and have it as a show piece by having an insert for the blade, and and insert for display.

Just to clarify with everyone, this is a hilt only that is being designed to be compatible with The Saber Trades blades and certain electronics. Sorry for any confusion.
