If you need a 1" blade, have the stock sent from TCSS to my house (shipping US to US so it is affordable) and then I'll ship it to you. I can keep the shipping down and make some concessions.
As for the dueling...7/8" blades a thin-walled. That doesn't mean you can't duel with them (have smacked the heck out of a few of them and didn't damage them a bit) but I wouldn't expect them to be daily heavy duelers. I'll have to do some testing on some stock I have here to see what they can withstand.

Hey Scott, just got your deposit. I'll have the blade built tomorrow or Saturday. I'll PM you when I'm done for final payment and shipping. Are you sure you want NO sanding? I usually do a little at least to even out the diffusion. Also, do you want an adapter in the box or just no adapter at all?

I don't have any unsanded right now but I can take pics when I make yours to show the difference. Without sanding you're going to see a line where the wrap ends, for instance. The sanding helps even it out and hide the wrap a bit. I usually apply a special solvent afterwards that brings the shine back. I'll post up pics of both tomorrow or on Saturday.

Here are two pics of blades. The first one is Scott's blade, unsanded, no adapter. The second one is my personal blade, lightly sanded with an adapter. Keep in mind that there is NO focusing lens in this particular saber so the flare is thanks to that issue. IMPO, the sanding is well worth it...

Liking this idea. I might have to get one for my Sith build. The 7/8" with 1" adapter. Like that idea. How bright are they especially in 32 inches? So I would have to order a TCSS empty blade and just send you the tube?

I'm going to start selling blades as runs once I finish the batch for the Starkiller run. It is easier for me to bang out a big order at once rather than building a blade here and there. Keep an eye out for the interest thread

Can I still buy these? Getting me a custom saber here soon and they normally don't ship with blades so. I'd like mine at 36 inches and rounded tip, it'll be a cree green led so whatever film length would be best. PM me I guess about it
