Nova Carbon, the last dueling blade you'll ever need.
A perfect replica of the amazing carbon fiber dueling blades used during the production of Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.

These beautiful blades are made from genuine carbon fiber, custom laid up just for us, with fabric weaves and tube dimensions exactly matching those used on the set of Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. When moving from production on Episode III, the stunt team finally ditched the unreliable metal dueling blades used on the previous two films, and upgraded to lightweight, durable, and straight-up gorgeous carbon fiber. This change offered several benefits. First, the lighter weight and smaller outer dimensions meant faster and faster dueling could be achieved. Second, the stiffer and far more durable carbon fiber both eliminated "bent tube" issues and also resulted in a nearly indestructible final product! No matter the speed and intensity with which the performers dueled, the blades stayed straight and intact.

Carbon fiber is not cheap or easy to make. The best carbon products are laid up by hand and cured in a high-pressure mold, custom-made for each project. So that's exactly what we did. Nova Carbon is a custom product made specifically for Saberz.com, in order to achieve the exact dimensions and specifications of the screen-used originals. Each blade uses unidirectional carbon at 45/45 orientations for high strength, finished with a 3k twill weave outer layer, all of which is a perfect match the original screen-used originals. Inner and outer diameters match the original exactly, something never before offered by any other company. The popular Kilwell offerings are, in fact, the wrong dimensions. That's why we had to go custom.

After laying up the custom tubes, we paint them with paints as close to their original 1999 colors as possible. The last step is to coat each blade with extra-strong polyvinyl chloride (PVC) heat shrink, again matching the production blades and providing a durable outer finish. Note that the bare silver blades do NOT feature the heat shrink. There's no paint to protect, and like the screen-used originals, silver blades were left bare to make them just a bit lighter for the fastest possible blade.

As you can see in the images below, these blades are a perfect match to the originals.

The best part? Nova Carbon Blades are designed to work with EVERYTHING. We include a complete hardware kit that allows them to work on virtually every saber ever made. Included adapters allow them to be used in 1-inch blade holders, or 7/8ths-inch blade holders, or even to be direct-threaded into hilts with M10 internal threads like the original prop hilts. That's right - if you have an original Episode III lightsaber prop, or one of our limited edition A3 or O3 replicas, our Nova Carbon can thread directly into them! But again, if you just have any traditional saber hilt with a 1-inch or a 7/8ths-inch blade, Nova Carbon will work just fine there too.

No returns on Nova Carbon.
