A new saber takes its place in the AusSabers armoury – The Hunter
The AusSabers Hunter evolved from a few different abandoned projects, but the idea remained the same – what if someone who hunted others for a living (or for cruel pleasure) carried a saber…
What were the motivations behind this solo assassin, and what kind of weapon would their quarry see before they met their maker? Thus, The Hunter was born…
The grip section is simple and slim, with raised polished aluminium rings surrounding a basic, black handle. The middle of the saber tapers in slightly around the switch segment, making it a natural grip point.
Moving higher up into the hilt, two large polished “wings” flank the slotted emitter. Each wing has an assembly on it – the front side has a decorative control box, and the other side a chamfered black bar. These can be removed, and a second control box is included if you want to alter the look.
In fact you can remove one wing altogether, or both, or remove the boxes and use shorter screws in their place to hold the wings on without the added weight of “greeblies”.
A d-ring on the pommel completes this very sleek, very deadly looking saber.
