Calvary Custom Sabers Presents "The Mentorship" Saber
« on: August 29, 2011, 06:40:50 PM »
Hey Saberland!

It is time again to present another newly completed saber. This saber was built for a young kid who is a huge SW fan. Here's the thing though, he helped build it. There was a starting budget for the guy just enough for a PVC saber. I wanted him to have something a little better than that, so I gave him a "credit" towards a metal hilt. He designed the hilt based off of given parameters, and did 90% of the polishing himself. I did the electronics for him, and we now have the following saber to show you guys.  8)

The Mentor-ship Saber
Specs;
Polished MHS hilt
2006 Hasbro Force action board w/ PNP transistor
Rebel Green LED running at 1100 ma.
3.6V In-hilt recharge setup
TCSS MOM switch threaded into hilt
TCSS premium Speaker w/ 2" of Resonance
Calvary Custom Sabers 33" Standard blade

Glams;












Video will be up in a few days...

Awesome work, and a really great idea.  Glad to see someone willing to help out a new apprentice smith and put him on the right track.  (Not to mention setting him up with a fine saber.)

Such a great gesture, to go the extra mile and help him to get a proper saber.  Especially one that he gets to design himself and put some work into the finished product. I am sure your young padawan is very proud of your joint creation. Nice work Sollus!
For my ally is the Force. And a powerful ally it is. Life creates it, makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us… and binds us. Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter! You must feel the Force around you. Here, between you, me, the tree, the rock… everywhere!

I love it!  Very sleek but budget minded.  I chose that blade holder for my brother's darkside saber as well as he had a very very small budget and I think it's like $12? 
Sabers I own/made:  ancient "Ossus" w/US 2.5 + rebel green
Larbel graflex w/ PC-U,  p4 blue, yoda chassis kit.  Anh Luke
In the mail-- super v3 plus red makoto w/2.0 sound. Sss hilt.
