elite class custom saber


A one off unique katana inspired saber I designed from scratch with my girlfriend and making it for her as a gift. The concept was to make a very simple katana style hilt with classic lightsaber details like angle cut emitter and sort of a neck section. Will be installed with the best electronics and features available in saber building community nowadays.

Features:

- 273mm long, 35.5x19mm grip
- 1 inch Neopixel blade with x2 SK6812 5050 strips
- 50 mm blade socket depth
- NPXL lit Neopixel blade connector designed by me
- full metal crystal chamber reveal with genuine amethyst lit crystal
- 3D-printed custom oval chassis in Professional Plastic (high strength, smooth semi-gloss surface)
- Proffieboard Open Source High-End sound board
- FSC-BT909 bluetooth Remote Control with "ForceSync" app (iOS and Android)
- dual 16650 2500mAh 3.7V battery with total 5000mAh capacity and 10A drain (approx. 1.5 hour of run time)
- 2.1mm recharge port
- TCS 28mm 4 Ohm 4W high bass WOWsound speaker in the emitter area
- hidden tactile switches (activation and aux) under grip wrap
- hidden set screws
- accent leds, micro SD-card, micro USD port, bluetooth switch access through the pommel

All hilt parts were CNC-machined in aluminum and brass, oval grip part was hand formed by me out of a 6061 aluminum tube of a specific diameter
