I’ve been streamlining my systems around what commission jobs to take on in an effort to me fair to those of you who wish to have me design an build you a lightsaber.

1. I will only be open to requests in the first 2 weeks of each quarter. In those two weeks I will decide how many commissions I can handle for those 3 months, and which requests I will take. I’m sorry that I can’t accommodate everyone. If I choose not to take your commission I will explain why and give you some options to continue your search.

2. New sabers for sale will be listed in the For Sale section on this website, the first person to email me and arrange payment wins. The last one sold within 36 hours of being listed. If anyone want a little advanced notice of what will be put up for sale – follow me on Twitter.
