Most are ran off the pack and not the bord so you can do that with anything.

Excellent saber. Looks perfect, actually. Great weathering, awesome leather wrap, really nice.

Really liking the LED accent color choices and the button in red. Nice.




I'm afraid the deflector shield with be quite operational when your friends arrive.

Impressive build! I'm a fan of the Kota saber because of the katana-like tsuka ito wrapping. Yours is missing that, but the LEDs and detailed weathering make up for that I think.

I think that saber deserves a CF board in it. Great job.

I started out with that but it would twist in my hands so I did not use it.

I used a sink tube as well and did not like that so I got some aluminum for the emitter shroud.

I think that saber deserves a CF board in it. Great job.
If I don't sell this one before I get my hands on a CF I will put one in it.  But till then this will have to do.

Thank you all for the positive feed back.

If you flatten out the sides, the folds wil lay flat and not slip.  Also, you can always glue them down or use adhesive backed material.

Edit: here's what I'm talking about.  It has flat sided and used adhesive-backed, athletic grip tape.

Really nice quality build. What MHS parts did you use and what switches? I'm wanting to do a similar build myself.
