Time for an update:
We've received word from our machinist. The aluminium parts are in production!
This also means we were able to figure out what these kits would cost if we decide to do a run:
One kit including: wooden hilt (drilled, colored and waxed) all the alumide parts (installed onto the wooden hilt), a tactile switch with custom cap and custom switch ring, aluminium heatsink (designed for tri-rebels and luxeons), aluminium blade holder (tapped for blade retention), aluminium pommel, 2 special 8/32 thumb screws (one for blade retention, one to secure the led module)
Price: 192 â‚¬ (250 USD)
This is not an official interest thread of any kind, but if you would be in for a kit, please post it here. This way we know if there's enough interest to even do a little run of these hilts.
