These are my first four completed sabers. I had no idea what I was doing. I completed the first one just in time for Halloween last year. The first 4 sabers I built for my kids. They're built out of 1 1/4" pvc instead of 1" pvc. The rigging I had to go through to get the blades to fit & the led to stay put was insane. But these first 4 builds taught me a lot. They're tough. My kids abuse them. My kids ages range then from 3,4, 8, & 11. I built the hilts at the same time so there was no real progression in the hilt designs. Since these are for my kids, I used 3/4" PEX pipe for the blades. I built 4- 28" blades for, I think $4.00. The grips are black 550 cord. They're not much to look at but I think they're ok. This first one in my youngest son's saber. It has a Lux III cyan led.
The second one belongs to my youngest daughter. It has a P4 white led with a purple Lee filter.
The third saber belongs to my oldest daughter. Her saber has a P4 white led with a pink Lee filter.
The fourth saber was originally for my oldest son, but I decieded to build him a different hilt. I gave this one to my 10 year old distant cousin in Alabama for his birthday. He loves it. The led is a P4 green. My Jaw dropped when I first turned this saber on. I was so impressed by the green.
There are my first 4 sabers. Be kind, like I said I had no idea what I was doing when I built these.

Luke Skywalker: Thank you guys for working together to pay the bills. We're way way in the black for this year and most likely part of next year and we still have 40 coins to go. All but six coins have shipped as of this morning. I needed a few clarifications for them.
