Hey guys !
Thanks for all your info. I checked Makoto's bloc, his blade looks cool and very solid, but I decided to take your advice and go with a luxeon blade for the new saber. I should say that I V been training with the Japanese sword for quite a while (about ten years) and when I say "dueling", I mean true blows. I recently saw a video by MADCOW clashing a thin walled blade against a thick walled blade and I was very impressed. The thing is that in the video, the thick walled blade was orange and the thin green. It really confused me, because I couldn't understand how much brightness you loose with a thick blade.
Could a stronger LED, secure the brightness of the blade ?
