Hello everyone ! I received about 5 month ago my first saber a weathered venomous fury 12W Led and I have a few question about several things. First of all, is it possible to disassemble such a saber ? I can take of the pommel but never achieve to unscrew the other parts.
Secondly, I'd like to add some details on my pommel but I don't now which type of paint I should use ...
The fact is that some parts on my saber aren't as weathered as I'd like them to be and I'd like to add some metal paint on it. Does anyone have a suggestion ?

In its current state, only the pommel is the free-removable part. The version of the hilt and nature of its build anatomy will also dictate it but the emitter shroud may be also removable with a completely backed-out blade retention screw that then leaves just the blade holder.
If you're wanting to retain function of the electronics, above is pretty much it as other sections will most definitely have threads locked with glue. If your plans are to gut it and forego the electronics, heat/torque/acetone bath/machining oil (ie WD-40) soak will soften the glues adhesion and you can unthread the locked parts.

Enamel paints work as too any automotive paint. I've personally just used your typical rattle-can paint. Depends on how durable/lasting you want the result to be, dictates the action of surface prep and either with or without a base layer of etch primer and the subsequent curing time.

I would add Birchwood Aluminum Black to that list but other than that OvrcAHst has got you covered. Note it will only effect bare aluminum.

Personally I find the weathered finish from SF to be too uniform, if that is what you're noticing also some 00 steel wool/sand paper and some patience can work wonders.
RELEASE THE KRAKEN!
