Not much of an update but I thought I'd let you guys know we're progressing! :)

Corran Horn and I have tried to abandon all our preconcieved ideas (and endless hours of previous research) about the hilt's design and we've spent the last few days poring over every last frame of the reference (along with the information we have from the prop's original creator) to redesign the hilt from the ground up. We've both heavily discussed and dissected every aspect and I've argued with myself about almost every mm of the design.

We've been pretty surprised to discover some new things about a hilt we thought we already knew extremely well and this version is gonna include details no other version of this hilt has had yet. At this point I'm pretty confident that this is the most accurate design possible without the actual prop in my hands.

While we can't reveal it yet I think I now have in my digital hands the final 'external' design and some solid plans for the internal layout. If this wasn't clear before we will be offering this hilt finished/installed or empty for DIYers. I think installers will be very pleased with what we're planning (e.g. chassis parts for all the electronics combinations we can think of plus crystal chamber options) and those that just want a static prop are gonna be happy too :)

Price and completion date are still unknown (this year tho) and some specifics are being held back until we're able to start prototyping things but feel free to ask any questions you may have and we'll do our best to answer them :)

Been seeing this teaser, and Tom is a stand up guy! Very interested to see this come to life.

Tom and I have been putting in a LOT of hours sorting out every detail. It's been labour intensive, and is resulting in some adjustments that neither of us expected, but it's absolutely worth every second we've put into it.

Just so you guys know, this is coming along quite nicely, we have a 3D print already, and we're just about ready to do a fully machined proof of concept for it.

I'm pretty excited about it, so I kind of can't help myself. Lol


So interesting.

There will be options for fully installed hilts as well.

Also less of an update and more just extra information but we're looking into doing a specially designed stand and (maybe numbered) plaques :)

Also to whet your appetite until we can show you some actual sabery goodness here's a look at an unfinished holodisc I'm working on to keep my head in the aesthetics of Jedi Knight ;)

Quick update.

We've been delayed slightly due to some issues with power in the machine shop, so getting that fixed has slowed us down some.

I'll keep you updated as things progress.

Just so everyone knows, we've had some minor delays that have set us behind slightly, but we're pushing forward the best we can.

A little update on things, it looks like the issues the machinist was experiencing are on the brink of being resolved, so we can get back to this shortly.

Able to share just a little bit more detail on the Rebel Agent saber design. We've dialed in pretty much every dimension possible on this hilt and worked out every line and angle....
