Sounds fantastic, how did I miss that one! an Arrakis knife inspired saber...this is going to be good!

To be fair my posting schedule has been erratic this year, with tech issues, lost files, Covid, creating fan-art and the craziness of 2020 in general so missing this Dune saber isn't surprising! I built it when the Vanity Fair behind the scenes images were published way back in April...it seems a lifetime ago.

Hi Infinit and MavRick, thanks to both of you. I really enjoyed building this one  because the saber has the look of Dume but at the same time is probably still quite ergonomic to use should anyone actually build it. The grips have form and function.
Plus making the hilt mainly monochrome to match the Lothwolf fur/colouring makes it stand out a bit too.

points to you for the compliments.

Hello Everybody,

It's Saturday again and that means new saber design. In amongst my photoediting jobs and my shopping spree for parts for my upcoming install I still found time to come up with a new hilt inspired by Star Wars Rebels (that is such a good cartoon - better than I imagined). So I designed and built a saber for Hera Syndulla and sent it to her but I think she had trouble identifying it...



However she did finally find the saber and here it is....









As Rebels is set in the post Order 66 era and sabers (and parts) were illegal to own I had to get crafty and disguise the hilt...and what better way than to incorporate it into a Hydro(?) Wrench! The wrench is basically saber shaped already.
However this one has a little trick up it's sleeve. If you rotate the red hook shaped Torque Adjustment lever it opens the grille I installed covering the saber power and settings matrix controls. Using a Hex Head tool (or Allen Wrench... Comes included  Grin) you can alter blade length and power level.

And when you aren't using the hilt you can use the red lever to hook it onto your tool belt and it "disappears" amongst the other tools of your trade!

Anyway I better get back to my workshop as I'm gonna be busy these next few weeks, photo editing, designing and installing...but for now thanks for checking this hilt out and for your support. Till next time....

Awesome, FT!  I LOVE how appropriate this design is, PERFECT for Hera!  Add in the period-correct backstory and violá: classic!  Also, the saber operations are inspired (love the idea that a gear-head like Hera would use a hex-head to adjust length/power levels  Cheesy)!

Point!

Hi Dutch, I was really impressed with Rebels and it had so many strong characters that I had a lot of inspiration to work with (and I still have Zeb's saber to come!).
But I always try to weave in little design details and story behind my designs. For canon characters it links the design to the inspiration but if my design is bespoke for either a non canon/fan-fiction character or for a friend I try to include personal detailing for each person - to make it their own.

Thanks for the support as always. Point on the way.

Love the backstory FT and great design as always.
Look nice and rounded, no straight edges, probably a joy to the hands.

Hello Tai Chi, I'm glad you liked the little backstory. I felt that Hera needed a saber too considering I have created hilts for most of the other Ghost crew members!
The idea of hiding the saber in plain sight is just another example of post Order 66 secrecy like Ezra's Blaster/Saber Hybrid but this design is even simpler as it uses an existing tool/object as the chassis for the weapon.

Thanks again for your comments!

Hi Infinit and Psycho, thanks guys...I keep on designing to keep me occupied and not think about this COVID craziness all around me. The UK is considering another increase in lockdown restrictions so I need to distract myself (I've even started building my Jedi costume and installing my saber after two years of planning  Shocked).

However I was inspired by watching Rebels recently so I had a few designs in my head and I have a couple of Guardians of the Galaxy inspired hilts upcoming too. Hopefully I'll post those inbetween my other projects!

Thanks again and points on their way to you both.
