I'll try to take some pictures before I leave for work this morning. It is an empty hilt I bought off of DX a few months ago here on IRA (you might have luck tracking down the OP). I sent it to Arkhan for some upgrades which include a box for two 12mm AV switches, powder coating and more. This hilt is rock solid and will be able to withstand intense dueling all while looking awesome.
EDIT: Here are the pics of the layout as it stands right now. This can still be customized in to a Jedi or Sith hilt. Right now I have brass accents and an X4 RRGRb for a Sith. I also have an Empire logo 3D pommel insert or I can use the one pictured. I could order a brass pommel insert if the buyer wants it for a little more. If the owner wants to go Jedi I can swap all the brass stuff for silver and use an X4 RGGRb or RGRbRb. I can also do a crystal pommel and have some other fun with it.
For the switches I'll have the following color options: white, amber, purple, red, green and blue
If anyone is interested in commissioning this, let me know so I don't start building it without your input.
That is one cool looking saber, IA. If I hadn't already commissioned you for a sith saber, I would have to snatch this one up. Heck, if no one is interested, and you build this like you describe, I might still buy it.
What is a pokie? Do I want them? For some reason I feel like I want them :-)
profezzorn: hey ARKM, did you ever write a that tutorial on the toner transfer method?

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.
