FAQs

Sabers

Where can I buy a saber?

You can request a custom order HERE or view what’s available in my ETSY shop.

How much does a saber cost?

An empty hilt (handle only, no electronics or blade) ranges from $110-$350 depending on features. Some high-end features such as laser engraving, leather wraps and elaborate shroud work will have special pricing.

How does the design and build process work?

We request a refundable deposit of $149 that goes towards the cost of your complete saber. We ask for the deposit because we get hundreds of requests for sabers daily or get flooded with emails and direct messages on Instagram. This is the best way to stay focused on crafting sabers and completing them on time. Most importantly it allows us to stay focused on building your dream saber to your specifications.

How does the deposit work?

As soon as we receive your deposit we will contact you within 24 hours and start the design process and understand exactly what you want your saber to look and feel like. The deposit goes towards your total cost of your order. If at anytime during the design process you want to cancel your order, just email us and we’ll refund your deposit no questions asked.

Are the saber blades removable?

Yes.

Do your sabers light up and have sound?

We build the empty hilt which can be upgraded with a high-powered, colored LED or full LED with sound effects. Jon Rossi manages our electronics installs. Click HERE to see a price list and description of the different electronics packages we offer.

Do your sabers come with a blade?

Our sabers can accept any 1″ poly-carbonate blade. Blades can be ordered HERE. Vader Head Customs designs and builds our custom blades.

How long does it take to get my saber once I’ve purchased it?

Currently we have a high volume of orders. Estimations will change but as of right now about 4 weeks.

Can you dual with your sabers?

Yes. They are very durable.

Can you build a replica of a saber from the movies, books, TV shows, etc.?

Currently we can’t build exact replicas of any sabers from the films or expanded universe. We can, however do an “inspired of” saber which would include many of the design elements of the saber in question.
