Custom floral etched "Subversion" Hilt Kit
This custom Subversion saber empty hilt kit is in stock and ready to ship. It’s ONE OF A KIND. Only ONE is available.
This incredible work of art was etched and weathered by Joshua Gamble and commissioned specifically for the Black Friday sale! Not only did Joshua etch and weather this beauty, but he also added a weathered copper finish to the crystal chamber and chassis rods, painted and weathered the saber's core and inlaid purple abalone accents! This is a stunning saber and one lucky person will make it their own.
This an empty hilt kit. No electronics or other installation parts are included.
Now, on to the normal Subversion info:
A visible crystal chamber with brass crystal retention and four individual machined brass rods on the sides speak to elegant nature of this saber. The thin neck makes for an incredible choke on which to grip this saber securely. Two domed tactile switches allow for activation and aux and the upper shroud reveals just a hint of knurling around the emitter's opening. The rear shroud can be removed to expose both a removable 18650 battery and the sound board, which can fit CFX, Golden Harvest v3 or a Proffie 2.2. (All three board holders and a battery tray with tabs is included with purchase.) The pommel unscrews to reveal the resting place of a 28mm bass speaker to give this beauty the volume it deserves. The crystal chamber can hold both a top, and bottom round individual pixel to fully light up the chamber. You will need to provide your own crystal for the chamber. It can fit a traditional quartz crystal or a round crystal up to 12mm in diameter.
The saber does not hold a traditional chassis. In keeping with Gary’s original design, there is a battery tray and separate board holder that nest inside the lower section of the saber. These have been fully redesigned for this run. They allow batteries to hold tightly but be easily removed when you need to swap them out. Each saber will come with the battery holder (and needed tabs) as well as three different board holders designed to take CFX, Proffie or GHv3 sound boards.
Hilt includes: Core saber, front and rear shrouds, four machined brass accent rods and brass crystal holders. All parts are made from 6061-T6 aluminum and brass. Also includes: battery holder with tabs, three soundboard holders for Proffie, CFX and GHv3.
You will need the following to install this hilt:
Crystal of your choice (natural quartz or 12mm quartz marble, two dome tactile switches (switch 22 at the custom saber shop.)
Normal electronics you would need for any saber (pixel pcb, soundboard, 28mm speaker, wiring, 18650 battery, etc.)
