Testing the Converta-Saber out with actual decent length blades this time:

Man, that's some death defying near dismemberment if I'm thinking of those plasma blades swirling around on that chain. Experience and focus seem to keep them well under control, but my eyes were just following them and waiting (like I'm going to hear flesh sizzle and you cry out in agony at the slightest mistake! lol)... but it's interesting to see with the longer blades now. Kinda cool concept so far in my mind, can't wait to see it's final evolutions along the design path. Keep up the good work.

Thanks. I trimmed the blades down in that video relative to how I had them before, which helped a lot to avoid what would be a few dismemberments. I'm happy with the blade length now.

Back to traditional saberstaff use, here's a cool new move, or combination of two moves, I picked up. It's the two-handed underarm spin I've been practicing, leading into the inverse or opposite of that spin facing the other direction. So the first part is spinning downwards, and then turning and spinning upwards. This can be done standing still and rotating the body, or by stepping into the direction switch. Both spins can also each be continued stationary or moving forwards or backwards themselves, so they lend themselves well to advancing, retreating, changing direction, striking, and just general flow.

Converta-Saber, now in three sections. Also with one end being a Ripper Clone mini spearhead. Balance is fine with that blade on one end as a single solid staff so far. No idea about as a three-section-staff yet though.

That 3 section saber looks cool, pretty dang interesting. And I do like the spearhead as well, pretty unique.

I'm both intrigued to see that move in action, and my mouth waters at the thought of such an exotic dish.

And now I want a saber with pike extensions and that spear blade...

Ikr, half of me screams "just walk away, maybe even walk quickly" and the rest just ignites my own lightsaber thinking "come on, if you live you walk away with prizes. Yes tempting fun with rewards, what's a hand or leg..."
They do inspire a good mix of intimidation and envy. Weapons exuding fear and respect are my cup of tea for sure. If 95% of beings will see it and just go NOPE and run you've got the right theme going. But of course in SW people always think "oh, I got this". Heck, I don't even want to think about what it'd feel like gazing myself with that spear head in training. Looks like you'd feel it (bare minimum) if it was spinning with some speed and clips you. Walking into a table style of pain.
