    Ok so who here has a custom saber? Either built by themselves or someone else. Post pics of you have them. As I said in another thread I am in the middle of mine. I may do a matching set or a short blade one also.

    What type of blade did you use? The one/ones I'm working on now are EL Blades. I'm going a bit different with the hilt and making it out of copper. Cost me a freaking fortune. Just for the piping it was almost $70, but that is enough to do at least one full one. I havn't decided on length yet so it might be 2 full sized ones or 1 full and one smaller one with a shorter blade.

    For C2, I chose not to make/obtain blades.

    It was just easier to deal with 2 hilts on the belt than it would have been to drag around 2 sabers. My husband has been looking at some blades that you can by online that actually light and can make sounds...and best of all you can actually spar with them.

    I will talk to him tonight and get the link to send you :)

    The EL sabers I made are pretty tough, the polycarbonate tube is virtually unbreakable. They plug into the hilt with a mono jack, and are held tight with a steel spacer that it screwed into the hilt. I haven't given them a full beating yet but from what I heard from others they should be quite duelable, not like the Master Replica ones.
