This is the OFFICIAL SIGN UP to be added to the NEO PIXEL DARKSABER RIPPER BLADE RUN AND THE NEO PIXEL KATANA RUN. We will email you updates every 2 weeks starting Sunday, July 26th. UPDATES will be posted on this website as well.
Gary Ripper has been working with plastics (acrylic and polycarbonate) since his days as a cutter for Tapp Plastics over 12 years ago. Most light saber enthusiasts back then communicated through several forums and the Darksaber was something EVERYONE said was IMPOSSIBLE. "You can't make BLACK light" This Darksaber is one of the first versions of the Ripper Blade Darksaber. Eight years later, we are launching the Neo Pixel Darksaber. After dozens of versions, the Darksaber has finally REALLY COME TO LIFE. Thank you all for the years of support and for making Ripper Blades a reality.
There is more to come and we hope you join us on this EPIC journey.
It's FINALLY happening. Ripper Blades is finally going to be offering NEO PIXEL DARKSABERS! After several prototypes, we are confident enough to bring this product to our VIPs and soon to be VIPs. We are on the last stretch so SIGN UP TO BE ON THE LIST and we will be going through the list once we start making the Darksaber. We will be sending ALL who sign up updates EVERY two weeks and this website will ALWAYS have the latest updates. STAY TUNED!
It seems the interest in a NEO PIXEL KATANA is just as great as the DARKSABER. We have decided to start with BOTH the NEO PIXEL DARKSABER and the KATANA RUNS. The Katana is one of the first ORIGINAL Ripper Blade designs and by far the most popular Ripper Blade in stock. If you have already SIGNED UP for the NEO PIXEL DARKSABER RUN, we will also send you updates on the KATANA RUN.
We have several VIPs who are currently waiting for CUSTOM NEO PIXEL Ripper Blades. They will be taken care of FIRST and then we will open up CUSTOM NEO PIXEL slots to the public so START thinking about WHAT blade you are going to want Rip to make you. We value our past customers (VIPs) and hope YOU will join the Ripper Family in the near future.
We have been blessed to work with KAIZEN SABERS during his DARKSAI RUN a few years back and we will also be working with KAIZEN SABER during his DARKSAI V2 RUN which will be launching in a few weeks. The DARKSAI is the best built DARKSABER in the galaxy. Since we now have FIVE different versions of the Ripper Blade DARKSABER available (CLONE, V1, V2, BLACK ONYX and NEO PIXEL) do you think it is time WE MAKE a stock DARKSABER HILT? Is a RIPPER BLADE DARKSABER HILT in the works? YOU WILL HAVE TO CHECK BACK TO FIND OUT.............
ALL members of the Mandalorian Mercs Costume Club will receive 15% OFF all Ripper Blade DARKSABERS. Yes, even the NEO PIXEL Ripper Blade DARKSABER! Since we will have 5 different versions of the Darksaber to fit every budget, wouldn't it make sense to offer other products as well? Yes, I said products.....STAY TUNED for UPDATES.
If you don't know about the Madalorian Mercs Costune Club, you've been hiding under a rock. CHECK THEM OUT!
Rip is still working on perfecting the Katana. If you were able to catch last nights Ripper Blades LIVE feed on our FB pages, you were able to see the prototype. He has not decided if the back edge of the Katana will be dark or not. The Darksaber will have light all around but we are considering only having the blade edge of the Katana light up. I will be doing a poll on FB this week to see what the members think. Please make sure to participate. The only other thing that is holding back the launch date is the CNC. She is expected to arrive the first week of August. Once she arrives, we will take a week or so to do some test runs and make sure things run smoothly before we announce a launch date. It will most likely be towards the end of August.
We had set the price of the Darksaber at $350. I am trying to get a better price on the supplies needed so we can pass the savings on. I am still working with several suppliers. We have not decided on a price for the Katana yet. Once Rip decides if he will have all edges light up or just the blade edge light up, we will be able to put a price on the Katana since making the edge dark will require a bit more work. There is the possibility of being able to offer both options. We will likely have the option of $200 down to start your build and the balance will be due when she is ready to ship.
We have about 20 VIPs whose orders will be made first. After those blades are done and shipped, I will be going over the sign up list starting with the first ones who signed up. Needless to say, you are among the first to have signed up. We are also looking into hiring a member of the saber community to help us with this RUN. Our goal is to get as many done and sent out before the 2nd Season of The Mandalorian starts. Once production starts, we will be dedicating 3 days out of the week to make the neo pixel blades.
We will be making YOUR Darksaber / Katana Ripper Blade. The stem length will be customized to fit your blade. We will need the EXACT measurements of the hilt you will be using to make sure your Neo Pixel Darksaber / Katana is a perfect fit. I will be going over this with each individual commission.
