Mother of god thats going to be one crazy saber. You should make a coupler just for the heck of it, just so all our heads can explode when we see a double bladed one of these.

My head exploded already! lol  If anyone has the dough to throw down on 2 of these... well.... You're WAY more well off than I am !  HAHA ! :)  And I'm not well off! lol  If it weren't for the fact that there is a year in between My name would not be on this thread.

SO.... EXCITED...... GAHHHH !!!:)

If only Ace and Sloth made watches...

Dude, I was thinking this myself. That would be epic, there is seriously so much creative potential there!

looking at the pics the din connector looks very close to the cut out slot on the emitter
would this possibly lead to a dull area behind/under the led strip? as the led strip would need a din connector fitted on the end of the blade
you may see a dull or unlit portion in the cut out slot at the very base of the blade

That is the din connector inside the blade.  The othe half of teh connector is screwed into the emitter and you don't see it in the pictures.  All that is taken into account.

thats insane........   whoa         I would like to add to this thread.  I have had the Killer penny in my possession for months, and working on it/modifying it/ adding to it's legendariness.  (if that is even a word)   Wat and Sloth are  by far the most skilled SMITHS there is in this hobby.  I see the work that Sloth and WAT are doing  and it begs the question??  How can you even top that?  You can't, how much more exciting does a saber get..  It's about the craziest thing I have ever seen.    I think the concept that Sloth and WAT have in the MAMBA  has further  pushed the envelope on how far a saber can be taken.. I know that working on the Penny  ( in the shadow of WAT )  has given me white hairs..  The complexity of it when Corbin handed me  WAT'S  work  made me think "OH BOY"  why did I say yes to this?????   

So  this I can't wait to see.

I am only selling empty sabers - I have not, nor do I have plans to arrange for installs on these.  That will up to the buyer to handle.  You can install it yourself, or contact one of the fine smiths in the Mining Colony or whoever you want to enquire about installs.  Sloth is doing his, I am doing mine, but beyond that, I haven't asked anyone to help me on these.  I hope this is not leading to confusion.  The completetion date is over a yar away.  I don't know if anyone wants to commit this early, but you might want to see about lining something up if you are intreested in seeking an installer.  I will see what I can do to help line up installers, but I can't make any promises.

LOL, if it was the Wat/Sloth Breitling, yeah, you'd have me ;)

Sloth does make Nixie clocks. I've always wanted one from him. Maybe that's a future duo project :)
