this is awesome thanks for this wat... deposit sent for full doublt hilt kit

where it says saber will need painted/finishing what needs painted? do you mean the black parts only?


Yes, the parts will be unfinished aluminum - by unfinished I mean no paint, no powdercoat, or no anodizing (except for the red thumbscrews).  They will look exactly like they do in the pictures of the full and half parts kits.  In researching this saber, I found out that there really was never a metal hero version of the double saber.  There may have been one back in the early days of production when it was just a half saber, but when it was made into a double saber, it was resin.  As such, the metal finish is not entirely accurate, but it looks so much better than silver painted resin.  The black is a tough call.  In some pictures, details look painted black.  In other, it looks like most of the details are nothing more than a black wash.  Because I don't want to get into doing 20-40 different paint jobs, I decided to leave the parts unfinished and allow the customer to decide how best he wanted his saber to look.  I chose to do the POC in a pristine look as it might have look when it was fist built.  Why?  Because I lack in the weather-fu department.  But someone who wants a more accurate finish may choose to weather their saber.

I wonder if the smiths are going to offer install slots or wait for flooded inboxes lol.

Flooded inbox for me. My prices will be what's listed above. Very labor intensive build.

"A full kit will include all the parts needed to make the full double bladed saber which includes the center coupler and o-ring as well as two pommel blanks that you may finish any way you wish."

Yes.  If you look at the full parts kit picture, you can see the two pommel blanks at the top center of the picture.  I am only supplying blanks in case people want to add a crystal, do severed wires/tubes. or do some other design to make it look like a saber that was cut in half.  Also, being able to seperate the saber is possible only if you choose a double soundboard install.

"A half kit will include all the parts needed to make a single bladed saber which will include the blank pommel that you will need to finish."

..If you look at the half parts kit picture, you can see the single pommel blank at the top of the picture.  I am only supplying blanks in case people want to add a crystal, do severed wires/tubes. or do some other design to make it look like a saber that was cut in half.  The pommels that LDM used in the Phase 3 were ones I made.  You would need to ask him to make you something similar - that's something you need to discuss with your installer.
