Looks good so far. The new grip would work really well as a base for a lightsaber too!

Depending on how you decide to wire the glowing effect on the sword, you may want to use something besides copper wire to wrap the grip with. You could end up with a nasty shock doing that.

Thats not real a problem, cos the voltage for an LED is about 3 to 4 volts. And the wiring on the grip isn´t conectet to any part with "energy" in it.

I did such things like this sword before, and i am not a stupid kid (or adult). I am not hook the sword up to the outlet of my livingroom or bedroom

Im not dead, but my job and the next Projectstep eating up my time.

I am currently engraving the blade with some minor details, and sometime inthe near future i have to fill the engraving with black Acrylic paste for best effect.

Here two pictures from the "Outlining-Stage" before the final Dremel-Engraving

Have fun, and thanks for all replys ;)
