Just finished another Elite Level Custom!
Check it out!

WHOAH!  THAT is one AWESOME CREATION!!!  I love it!  The black guarded switch.....I'm a little on the fence with it and it's blending with the hilt: I'm not a fan of guarded switches. Tongue  If the switch was and AV, black and recessed or even purposed as US does, with a little weathering, it would look so much more sweet.  YET, that is my opinion.  You're work is Top Flight!  No criticism, brother, just an observation.  Otherwise, you know how I feel.  Great job!  I hope this is really working out for you!? Grin  Have a drink on me!

Hi Drahacir.  That Prophecy and your others are fantastic.  Shocked.  Do you have to remove or protect the electronics in any way.  Really want to destroy that Aeon but am nervous about the heat from dremel burrs on the aluminum transferring to the internals.  Sure wish that you lived in Canada.  Perhaps you will get some grab bag or stunt sabers to modify, stick a covertec wheel on and make available off site.  Please PM me if this happens.  Creative point for you.  Smiley

On my personal sabers I've taken to modifying them, but since it's what I'd consider part of the electrical components I won't touch them on other people hilts.
Just my own little policy of not touching the electronics.

Love this hilt though.

I just take the dremel to them slow, if the aluminum starts to heat up I stop and let it cool I'm careful to remove sharp edges and the like as I go too. I'm pretty big about not touching the electronics of other people's hilts since I don't want to be responsible for any problems. Taking it slow I've never had issues, even on my own hilts where I've been less careful it's still never had any detrimental effects on the internals. I do protect the internals when I cut windows or stuff like that by using a damaged blade as a buffer. I've seriously considered doing that with some grab bag hilts, if I do I'll be sure to let you know.

Oh no, I thought this was the hilt you spoke of in an earlier thread that was "yours".  Absolutely!  You can't change the purposed portion of the saber a customer sent you.

Really nice work!

Just a thought, but for greater impact when you post your completed customizations, you should use an App like PhotoGrid to do a "Before" and "After" pic embedded side by side.

Winning? Is that what you think it's about? I'm not trying to win. I'm not doing this because I want to beat someone, or because I hate someone, or because I want to blame someone. It's not because it's fun. God knows it's not because it's easy. It's not even because it works, because it hardly ever does. I do what I do because it's right! Because it's decent! And above all, it's kind! It's just that. Just kind.

I've thought about it, but have never done it since I figure you all know what these things look like beforehand.
Might give it a go in the future though!

I just thought it would be kind of neat if the pics were the same size and photographed at the same position & angle.

The new saber looks amazing, but i have two questions, do you sand the hilt to get the weathering effect? and how do you make the cracks in the hilt?

Thanks! I do sand the hilts and I use an engraving tool to get the cracks.
