MHS PRIZM saber "Cadence"
« on: September 19, 2015, 05:26:12 PM »
Hey all,

This is my first PRIZM saber, and the design is one I've wanted to do for quite awhile now.  It's a dual-shroud saber that owes its influence to several notable sabers in this community, including (in no particular order):

Acerocket/Orbital Machining's Alliance
Vader's Vault's Aggressive Negotiations family
LDM's Auretus
GCS/Madcow's Nuevo Graflex

I wanted this to be a humble homage to those inspirations while still making it uniquely my own.  The 4" grooved section has Grip Style 2 on every other 'panel'.  The double male adapter has been machined down slightly to give it some depth.  In lieu of powdercoating, I spray painted the BH myself.  Big props and thanks to Tim and his team for doing the shroud and getting it exactly how I envisioned it.

SPECS

- All MHS parts
- custom MHS sleeve shroud
- Grip Style 2 cutouts and strips
- Plecter Labs PRIZM 3.5 with the following soundfonts
   + Revolt by LordBlako (with some R2-D2 addon sounds)
   + Bespin II by Madcow
   + Kamino by Nightstorm
- 3.7v Li-ion 2600mAh 18650 rechargeable battery
- Switchcraft 2.1mm recharge port
- short blue ring AV switch
- Tri-Cree RGrB LED
- 2w 28mm bass speaker
(special thanks to Darkside Engineering for the ARKM blade plug and Darth Ryo for the 3D printed PRIZM chassis)

GLAMS

Sorry for the pic quality.  That white blade is supposed to be yellow!
Pics should be clicky.






















I'm planning on this being my Episode VII premier saber.  It will probably also be my last build for awhile with some Darth Real Life expenses coming around the corner  :-\

Thanks for looking!  ^-^

Looks awesome!
You can definitely see the influence from those other sabers while still having its own personality.
