    While these look great a blade like this made out of acrylic would be a liability since acrylic is not strong like polyc and when it breaks it can shatter and have sharp jagged edges.

    These are not made for battle. They are for cosplay. Just like a blaster. I have polycard ones but only work in 12w sabers. Polycard sucks at this thickness for light.

    I figured as much.. I just wanted to inform others in case they wanted to build one. They do look very nice Ripper.

    Those are beautiful.

    To Tim, I as well as many others would like to see this in the store as a show blade.

    I just say these blades on facebook (Shared from Saberforge, I think) a day or two ago. Very nice work. Maybe Tim could sell as these blades, or the martial to make one. Though I would think shipping an acrylic blade would require some extra care.

    You would still see light from certain angles - which is why "black blades" don't work here in the real world.

    Could just not install an LED and paint the blade black.

    There has been more than enough theorycrafting and fanboy supposition about black blades.

    Light does not work that way.

    It's physics.
    It has been that way for a very long time and will not change any time soon.
    Please stop posting about it.

    All it does is make people angry.
    And if this thread doesn't get back on track, I WILL clean it and lock it.
