Bought some Ahsoka Razor blade plugs from ARKM. These are so good, if you didn't get in on this, I don't want to rub it in, they are that good. ARKM has great attention to detail, he's easy to communicate with, great sense of humor, a definite asset to this community. 10/10
Bought the Ahsoka Razor Blade Plugs and they are amazingly detailed. They really complete the Ahsoka saber. If you're in on the Saber run you need these plugs! ARKM was very prompt in communication for questions and his quality of work is superb. A++++++. 10/10
Purchased a set of Ahsoka blade plugs. They are awesome. Communication was top notch as always. I almost want to purchase more from ARKM just to read some more of his feedback. They're almost as good as his blade plugs. Will definitely buy from again. 10/10

I had the pleasure of meeting with ARKM in person this evening, we talked sabers, had some coffee, and I purchased a Graflex blade plug from him. The quality of the product is INCREDIBLE, and the man himself is quite a gentlemen. His mug is much less ugly than he will have you believe.
Inside of the blade plug was a map and a shopping list. The map was of an ancient temple somewhere in South America. The list instructed me to buy a camel, three oranges, a compass, a dagger, fourteen pigeons and employ a 12 year old Sherpa who speaks fluent Swahili. And a plane ticket to Bolivia of course.
Let the adventure begin. This should be interesting.
I was lucky to land the last ARKM graflex razor blade plug. ARKM was fantastic in communication and patient with me as I was waiting on measurements for a saber that was getting an install. The blade plug looks killer and I'm thrilled I was able to get in on the limited run. I will definitely be posting pics when I get the saber.

I absolutely love the Ahsoka blade plugs he whipped up for me. I saw them on another post and asked about them and he messaged me to see if I was interested very cool of him. They are beautifully made and got to me super fast. One of the smoothest transactions I've had couldn't be happier with the way this deal went down I hope to do more business in the future thanks again 10/10
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.
