So... I have a ripper blade. I like it a lot. I fear dropping my ripper blade (made of acrylic), so I practiced trying do one in my own style. Poly carb is a bit darker, so it's harder to get that lighting than with acrylic. The poly carb blade wasn't really feasible at all until the X4 4up and the z6 came out. So I decided to try it.

I figured out the technique that I'll be using, I'm now going to start playing with thicknesses and lengths. From this round, short blades look great, longer blades... not as great.

Have a look if interested. I'm still tinkering.

Below is with a SF X4 4 up, BBGG

these are the test blades

11 inch blade

32 inch blade

Below are some new things I cooked up: Wakizashi styled, these are with a z6, standard brightness

23 inches by 1 inch

23 X 1.5 inches
