How many people would be interested in trying to get back the trans-smoke blades that TCSS used to stock? For one, these can make as close to a "Black Blade" as you can get with out spending a billion dollars and 18 years of research. Also these blades make some very awesome looking blades with most color LEDs, but especially with a red LED. It makes it look like a "Blood Blade", which is very, very awesome. I am sure TCSS would need to have a good bit of interest in order to make it worth his while stocking them again. So, who is up for trying to get the smoke blade back? I will have the poll up until April the 10th to see if there is enough interest into trying to obtain a source of them.

These pictures were taken with a very bad camera and the blades look a WHOLE lot better in person. These are pics from when the blades first came out many years ago. As you can see from even these bad pictures, there are many possibilities with this blade.
Here is the smoke blade with a red LED. Notice that the outside has like a black aura around it.
Here is the smoke blade with a white LED. I was in a hurry and used the TCSS Tube diffuser in this pic. It looked awesome using cellophane and blade film. If I could ever get a hold of another one I would take some much better pictures with better diffusion.

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**
