I don't have one, though I've used a number of Park Sabers and thoroughly enjoy them.

I do have to say though, one of the things that FX has that just tickles my fan boy nethers is the focusing crystals. I'd like it if they had more options like...I dunno, actual crystyals or minerals? The acrylic ones really add flavor in terms of customization because you've got the color options, but what I would really like to see is a perfectly shaped crystal, like the synthetically grown and traditionally red ones of the sith. But I'm just a detail whore...so yeah

Yeah, looks pretty cool, though my only critique would be to get a less recognizable crystal. Quartz is common and easily accessible, but I think something more sci-fi-ie such as violet tanzanite, uranium glass (personal favorite), vanadinite or really just colored lead crystal, much cheaper and comes in tons of colors and shapes.

Me and Tek are thinking of giving a hand at crafting some sabers of our own. See how they come out and such.

Yeah, nothing set in stone yet but we've got some experience doing fabrication.

My only gripe... I don't have access to a machine shop. A lathe, drill press, shit even a table grinder would be helpful. But yeah, we'll probably be all fan boy about it once we've got something cooking.
