  • Hi there! Have you ever heard the tragedy of...
Archivist's Heirloom
« on: November 09, 2018, 02:29:17 PM »
Hello there! Haven't posted a saber in awhile- thought i would share one i made over the summer. Pardon my dust- as it *is* a little banged up from use.  :)

Was looking around at some other saber smiths and their work- and i always wanted to *attempt* to make a bone hilt. (a la Madcow style) This is about as close as i could get. It's supposed to be a Jedi archivist's weapon- so i initially wanted to do a really complex etching for it- but i didn't have the time to do that this time around- so i opted for a more simplistic approach.

The Specs:
-Tri cree, royal blue
-Nano V4
-12mm vandal momentary
-In hilt recharge
-Mixed MHS v1 and v2 parts
-22mm stealth speaker (not bad for a little guy! still not quite as good as a bass 28 though)
-Custom chassis
-Hand-cut claw piece/peg mount
-Dremel cut shroud with custom acid etching
-PVC "bone" handle, hand sanded
-Lightly weathered from my little brother attempting to turn to the dark side with it

And now, the glams:

Thanks for taking a look. Cheers!

Really loving this design. Great work on this. This flows really nicely from the tech features to the bone handle. And the Graflex touches are nice,

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

Your shroud-work is inspiring.  You really push the limits of what an acid-etch can accomplish.  We shall see how I fare when I try acid etching myself.
