Hello Everybody, today I have the pleasure of bringing to you my good friend Borommakot’s next saber in his Zodiac Series. Today we have reached the sign of Cancer – The Crab and this design has a purposeful look inspired by the crustacean! I have again had to recreate the saber in the builder as Boro’ only sent me one image when he created the design (nearly a year ago now, can you believe that?). So I won’t babble on here is Borommakot’s Cancer Lightsaber…
This design I feel straddles the look of the star sign creature and the look of a weapon the Sith would use. The blade is a Sith red colour, that also signifies danger or anger, which is apt as Sith and Crabs can both be a bit aggressive (enter a crab’s rock pool at your own peril!). The emitter has an asymmetrical shaped shroud which gives the impression of the Crab’s claw and from certain points of view looks like the main shell that covers the animal’s body. The switch makes me think of the segmented arm that the claw attaches to. The remainder of the saber is more in line with a normal functional saber with a nice red leather clad handgrip and a pommel with a D-Ring to hang the weapon from your belt.
It must have been difficult for Borommakot to come up with designs for all 12 signs but I reckon he did a fantastic job. Sadly I think we only have one more Star sign left to show you. But fear not I have been given permission by Boro’ to display his other designs and I have more new hilts to show (even if one has been rejected and is now a Saber In Storage!). So I would like to once more thank Borommakot for allowing his work to be displayed here and please take a minute or two to check out his daftPirate YouTube Channel which can be found by clicking HERE , I am sure you’ll like it!
Thank you to you, my viewers and followers (including those from Venezuela and Israel! I saw you!) Your support is greatly appreciated. Please call back to see the new stuff in upcoming posts and spread the word about FTSabersite. Till next time.
