It is most likely made by the site owner. yoda  http://www.fx-sabers.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=75

If the battery holder in the saber looks like it will hold a AA battery, it most likely will use 2 14500 protected li-ion batteries.

I would strongly urge you to post some pictures of the holder, so that we may confirm.
Or you could try contacting yoda via email or PM, and see if he was your seller, and may still have the specs for the saber in his records.

Thank you for responding Jango! I will try and post some pictures of it. I have to use my iphone camera because that's all I have so hopefully the quality is good enough for you determine what I have here. Il post them in a few minutes.

That definitely looks like a 14500 battery holder to me.

I ordered these batteries and got them today. They are indeed the right batteries. Thanks for the help on that.

One more question if I may. The blade that came with this saber is now years old and somewhat beat up and I would like to replace it with a new one. However, the blade appears to be made specifically for the graflex in that the bottom portion(the part that fits into the blade holder of the saber) is of a smaller diameter than the rest of the blade( I guess you could say its tapered, or recessed) so that it fits in the graflex. None of my other ultrasabers blades will fit in it.
Is there a place I can order a blade made specifically to fit a graflex?

That is one of the systems I made many years ago and Jango and Darthlwin are correct
it uses the 14500 size lithium ion batteries. ;)

If you need any assistance with it feel free to PM message me here in the forum as well.

Hi all,

I sent a pm to Master Yoda in July and also this afternoon regarding the Graflex saber.  Are you still accepting send ins or doing builds for the Graflex series?  I have one that I wish to convert, and wanted to find out more.
