This is my first time on IRA, and looking forward to any & all advice on the subject of lightsaber conversions. I'm 37 years old and a member of a lightsaber fight club Herr in my home state of Illinois. I'll need all the help I can get since it was about a year ago I got into lightsaber dueling.

I am in the process of converting my MR Mace Windu lightsaber for dueling. However, I've hit a curve while trying to carefully remove the sliding switch cover from the hilt. The gold outer covering is intact but the rest of the switch did not make it. I'm using the conversion tutorial from the TCSS forum.
Rogue Five: Hi Bentley! Where y'all been?

Rogue Five: Sandpeople-Cool! I don't have any of the Noble Collection swords but I have a few of the United Cutlery ones and they are superb replicas as they're modeled directly from the original props. If you're interested in buying another one, I highly recommend

Rogue Five: Anduril. I have one and it is gorgeous and sturdily made. I believe it is a full tang sword so you could swing it around without it flying apart. Trust me, you'll feel like the King of Gondor holding this thing lol.

ARKM: "full tang United Cutlery" is an oxymoron.

ARKM: That does not mean that they aren't nice for hanging on the wall though. I have a UC Kurgan sword. I like it.

Rogue Five: Yeah I wouldn't go looking for a fight with any wall hanger swords lol. I think Anduril and Strider's Ranger sword are the only full tang swords in the LOTR line.

Rogue Five: I looked into getting a functional Anduril from a custom swordsmith but no one I found made a screen accurate one.

Rogue Five: That Kurgan one is nice. Sword afficianados like to dump on it because it has a two piece blade and they're right but who cares! It looks bad a**
