Thread: 3/4" trans white blade and colored cellophane

    Default 3/4" trans white blade and colored cellophane

    Hello everyone,

    Going to get back into saber building and do a couple padawan sabers for my niece and nephew. I made a couple for my son years ago and used the 3/4" clear blade with cellophane. Unfortunately that is out of stock and I don't know when it may get restocked so thought about using the trans white blade. I know it will be dulled, but would it still be a viable option to use with colored cellophane and still look decent?

    Thanks in advance

    Not sure what leds you used back then, but I have both clear with blade film and trans white with film and vastly prefer the trans white, and they are not a whole lot less bright. Maybe give it less wraps, but I don’t like that I can catch the seam at times with the clear blade. Also, pixel blades are amazing!

    I don’t think you’ll see a lot of 3/4” blade stock going forward. Most is either 1” or 7/8” these days.
