Yuba City, CA – On February 8 2016, Ken Hampton launched a Kickstarter campaign for OTS Sabers, 100% custom LED sabers made the way you want, any time you want.
“The OTS line of sabers is based on a patent pending independent chassis, which houses all of the electronics. The independent chassis allows you to utilize as many different OTS hilt pieces as you like to change the look of your saber on the fly,” the creator explains, “Using just the 40 currently available hilt and trim pieces, you can create over 800,000 different set-ups for your single saber and close to 3,000,000 possibilities for your double-bladed saber; that doesn’t even include utilizing the coupler pieces to make extended hilts or doing your own customization.”
Ken Hampton and his team have been creating custom-designed LED sabers since April 2013. Over the past few years, his base has grown and now it is time to expand and bring his 100% custom sabers to more enthusiasts. Too often, saber customers are limited by the style of hilts available and once they choose, they are locked in. So 18 months ago, Hampton started developing something new; something different; something revolutionary.
With this Kickstarter project, they are excited to present the HHCLS OTS Saber. The team’s goal is to raise the capital to expand their operations, hire personnel, get parts mass produced and set up a larger shop. This will allow them to provide saber hobbyists, cosplayers, and duelists with an incredibly versatile line of sabers.
Since your hilt pieces aren’t tied to the electronics, you are free to use many different customization techniques like baked-on enamel, powder-coating, etching, leather-work, rubberizing, and more without fear of damaging your saber.
“We have put years of research and development into creating our patent pending Firaxan string blades, known for superior brightness, consistency, and strength,” says Hampton.
The project has been popular so far, raising its $75,000 goal in only 14 hours and chosen as one of the Kickstarter team’s ‘Projects We Love’. In exchange for pledging to the project, backers can gain access to a variety of rewards including a HHCLS OTS Saber T-shirt for $20, a Saber Chassis with Crystal Chamber Parts for $80, and more. Backers can also pledge $990 for one Saber with all the parts or two Sabers for as little as $1,100!
