Gemini Concepts Presents... Fellstrike's IMPERIAL KNIGHT STAFF
« on: October 15, 2010, 06:16:45 AM »
Hello and welcome back to another addition of "Gemini Concepts Presents...." with your hosts, Master Jedye and Chewbacca.

On today's episode, we'll study the unique saberist desires of the rare and elusive forumite.... Fellstike.

Fellstrike contacted us a while back wanting an Imperial Knight Staff.  And seeings as how CHEWBACCA loves staffs... well, we couldn't pass this up.
He provided us a design, and we moved forward from there.

Here are the specs:

2 MHS Bladeholders Style 1
2 MHS pommels Style 2
2 MPS inserts Style 12
2 MHS Sleeve Material
Custom-Machined 7.5 inch ribbed section body
2 White P4 LEDs
1 MR Jedi Board
1 MR Sith Board
In-Hilt Recharge System
Guarded Latching Switch
1 Double ended male connector
Battery, speaker... you know the rest.  ;)

The MHS sleeve materials were cut to Fellstrike's specs and then HIGHLY polished.  
The custom ribbed section was PC'd in Black Magic.

On to the pics!















And course.... the video!

This was certainly a fun build and we thank you for letting us do it, Fellstrike!  Hope you like!

Very Nice!  I like how you also put covetec wheels on there so you can still hang it from your belt in staff mode...  I've always like Imperial Knight sabers as well...  As soon as my dremel skills get up to snuff, I plan on building one of my own..   ;D

Perfect guys.

Exactly what I was hoping for. Can't wait to take it for a spin.


Pretend that something witty is here.

Sweet saber, guys! Always loved the simplicity of the knight and these are pulled off in that fashion in the best way. I see so many of these that are overly plain looking and lifeless. Gotta love the staffs too!

I love that you have both Jedi and Sith sounds installed.
Also, the emitters remind me of performance exhausts, which is straight up my alley.
Wicked saber! ;D

Are those ribbed extensions from TCSS?
If so, then that must have been one heck of a tight fit!

No.

Custom-Machined 7.5 inch ribbed section body

The custom ribbed section was PC'd in Black Magic.

Wow! Great job, GC! Very smooth... and as always, I love the mirror shine ;D.

Great idea, and you pulled it off extremely well. Well done :).

same inner diameter, just longer. Yes, everything was a tight fit.

Double the fun, double mint gum :)

Kudo's on the build guys.  That is some decent cramfu displayed on those 'shiny' sabers.  I always liked the simplicity of the imperial knight design.


Time will bring the real end of our trial.  One day they'll be no remnants

Thanks.

Yeah, I didn't care too much for the IK's before this.  Might make me one...with more of Qui-Gon Shroud...open toward the emitter.
