This is another Slimkota that I recently finished for a client in Germany ( sounds like a fun shipping experience ) This is one that I built using some of the new components that keep this hobby evolving. A special thanks to the artist Darth-Ryo for working with me on creating a 3d printed version of the delrin sleds I used to make for these, and also a big thanks to my friend Aaron of Solos Hold for 3d modeling my design and producing a bunch of the tang parts (the help has been much appreciated, and credit given ;)) Also a big thanks to my friend Scott of Naigon Electronics ( I would never had thought I would ever have such a great professional relationship with a Wizard!)
Specs: 12" x 1" x 1-1/2" oval hilt t6061 1/8th wall Chassis: GOTH3designs Katana in strong flexible white plastic Board: Igniter2-R2 By Naigon Electronics LED: NEC Cree RGrb by Naigon Electronics Battery: Solos Hold 18650 10 amp High discharge Speaker: 23mm JDC 8ohm 2 watt Wiring 28-30-32 AWG Teflon coated Military spec. starnd and solid core

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**
