Greetings Jedi & Sith alike. I am the blade master, IndustrialAction, maker of the SabreBlade™. I created the SabreBlade as a way to enhance the beauty of our custom Lightsaber creations. Each blade is hand made to the owner's exact specifications. These are not mass produced blades.
The product that I'm most proud of is the 7/8" SabreBlade. In my opinion, it is the most movie accurate blade you can buy. I also offer the following...
1" Transwhite thin or thick walled 1" Clear thin or thick walled 3/4" Transwhite thin walled 3/4" Clear thin or thick walled
Round and bullet tip options are available for all styles except in the 3/4" family (I am working on a 3/4" bullet tip solution, and will offer them as a "custom" add on). Tips for 7/8" blades are hand-made by fellow Consortium member, Arkhan.
Thin walled blades make excellent display blades and are not recommended for dueling. The 3/4" thick walled blade is strong but 3/4" blades generally do not have enough strength for intense dueling. If you are in to dueling, I would highly recommend going with a 1" tick walled blade in either clear or transwhite.

ARKM: *waves hand* "I'm not the slacker you're looking for"

ARKM: Sadly no. Well, that's not entirely true. I did finish writing it but did not perform the steps and take pics of said steps.

ARKM: So it's like "Step 5: Using the high temperature temp, tape the paper with the design on it onto the metal part to be etched."

ARKM: ... but there's no Pic 4.

profezzorn: from other things I've read it's just PNP blue with some heat and pressure applied, right?

ARKM: Some use that. I could not get successful results with it but others have.

profezzorn: so what do you use?

ARKM: I personally use glossy magazine pages. I just rip a page out of a magazine and put it in the printer. The pages have to be the right thickness for the printer though. Too thin and they rip in the printer.
