What do you get when you combine an Energy Sword and a Brute Shot? You get this wicked thing.

Thank you for your interest. I make these swords for $300 plus shipping, Extra $50 for added startup sound. Included is the light up on/off blade effect, pulsing led effect, and red/blue color change.

This looks awesome! Keep up the great work its cool to see a mixture of two weapons into one awesome one that even changes colors!

you should make a gravity hammer with one side of a energy sword on the back instead of the normal metal blade. behind the hammer head.

I really like what you've come up with here, both the design and execution! Nicely done :thumbsup

What sort of battery life could one expect from an assembled kit?

Could you go over more of how you built it? I'm pretty inexperienced when it comes to electronics but I'd be happy for a blade that just turns on and off haha

Be wary of necro-posting: the mods might eat ya ;)

Looks like some LEDs connected to a switch & batteries with a blade made out of lexan. The glowing effect is achieved with the blade edges sanded and some scratches engraved to diffract the light.

Ive been looking for a way to make an energy sword that achieves this effect. Lexan is definitely a good route to go! Will definitely use this thread for reference!

I'm very interested in getting a hilt from you. I want to build a sword for my suit

ExCeLLuR8 , Rancid Musk the creator of this thread and the energy sword you are talking about, was last logged into the boards on Jun 7, 2016, and this thread itself is from 2015. As such, I don't think they will see your post here and respond to it. I would suggest perhaps doing a google search for "Rancid Props" and seeing if they are still active on another platform like Facebook or Etsy.

Or, if I may, I would suggest seeking out Sean Bradley, Sean Bradley or by SeanBradleyStudio. He does occasional runs of Energy Swords and might be able to get you just a hilt if that is all you need.

Awesome thanks for the tip man, I didn't even pay attention to the date. Opps. This is good quality stuff, not alot of sword info out there other than people 3d printing or the toys. I want to build one but don't have access to a 3d printer

To be honest, for a sword you don't even really need a printer. My two day build was just some acrylic sheeting, steel, LED strips, an Arduino and a battery pack. The handle will be cleaned up later but it gets the point across.

I'll be making a more elegant electronics cover (read as making an electronics cover) and I could put together a build guide pretty quick if you need a sword in the near future.

That's awesome man yeah I may take you up on that. Could you send me some up close pics of your quick build? I know it won't be hard to build a sword but just looking for some pointers and direction

I may do this in the future. I picked up this plastic toy from Walmart after haloween for $8. I'm pretty sure it is available to buy onAmazon, but I don't know the cost...

It is hallow so I will cut the hilt if and install LEDs that will (probably hopefully) shine through the thin plastic...
