Thank you everyone for your kind words regarding this saber. I was honored to work so closely with Wat on this, and it was refreshing to bring someone else's ideas to paper. It's not something I do normally, if ever, and having Wat to bounce design ideas off of greatly facilitated this design. From beginning to end, I knew this would be a unique challenge, and if we pulled it off, it would be worth the effort.
I seriously can't wait to hold this one. I will be designing some kind of display for it, and it will sit proudly as a testament to shared effort.
Wat is awesome to work with, from emails to phone conversations over the length of design time, so I want to thank him for allowing me to tag along on this adventure.
Those of you who get in on this, I'll be getting with you as soon as all the sketches get going to find out what format works best for everyone. I'll sign and number each print.
