Welcome to the first edition of Hot Pink Joysticks’ Squee Me Monday! Today, we look at some awesome products from a company known as Parks Sabers.
First, feel free to visit their website to do a full browse of all their products.
Parks Sabers manufactures some of the most detailed and beautiful lightsabers I have ever seen. Yes, you heard me right. Lightsabers. Now, before you go off on the FX Sabers that have previously been done by other companies and what have you, I implore you to take a look at this video.
Remember, that footage contained no special effects. That’s exactly what those sabers are meant to do. Now, each saber they produce can be stored and displayed with or without the blade attached. So if you want to wear your saber on your belt, you can. The blade is removable. ^.^
There are a number of hilt styles to choose from. Some are more typical of your Jedi Knight, while others invoke the sense of true Sith power. My favorite hilt style is the Aria. I would have loved to include pictures of the different hilts, but that is impossible with the way Parks Sabers has their site set up, so PLEASE go to the site and do some browsing. That video was amazing enough to peak your interest anyway, right?
What makes these blades so awesome in the first place? Well, let me quote from their FAQ section.
Q. Can I fight with Parks Sabers blades?
A. Yes and No.
Yes. Parks™ sabers blades and equipment will endure “moderate to extreme” dueling.
No. You will break a finger or bone before you break our blade. Don’t do it!
Dueling, fencing, or swordplay can lead to injury and loss of property. For this reason, Parks™ sabers does not encourage or recommend any forms of dueling, fencing, or swordplay. We do not accept any responsibility for the misuse of Parks™ Sabers ultra-strong equipment.
