I figure for a light up blade, you could buy a 3/4" plexiglass dowel rod (color of your choice) sand it down and put a mini mag-light in the handle. This works pretty well the whole blade lights up very nicely. Ive tried it before, I just haven't completely put a laser sword together yet.
Has anyone ever tried this? What other options are there for a light up blade?
I customized my own style handle out of hydralic parts from an 18 wheeler. Its heavy, and I've seen prettier, but it matches me pretty well.
