Custom Powder Coats
Style and Flair
Custom powder coats are a great way to add color or a special look to your saber. Powder coating is an electrostatic application and heat curing process that allows us to add additional finishes on your saber. Saberforge offers 30+ different powder coat options to further customize your saber and make it unique. We offer both transparent and non transparent powder coats. Depending on your desired look, you will want to select the one that best fits your expectation.

Transparent on Standard
When selecting a transparent powder coat on a standard finish saber, the poweder coat color will "tint" the silver portions of the saber while leaving the rest with a dark/black appearance. This option provides a nice contrast and keeps any aesthetic lines that may be designed into the hilt black.
Standard base finish with transparent red, blue, and green powder coats
Transparent on Weathered
When selecting a transparent powder coat on a weathered finish saber, the saber will have both strong and weak colored areas over the saber. Very similar to a non powder coated saber but with some added color where the silver parts would show.
Weathered base finish with transparent red, blue, and green powder coats
Transparent on Black
Transparent powder coats on sabers with a black finish offer a very unique look. The saber will appear very dark but give off a slight tint of the selected powder coat.

Gloss & Non Transparent
Gloss and non transparent powder coats change the entire sabers color regardless of whether you pick a standard, weathered or black finish. Since they are non transparent, any black lines, or special markings on the saber will be coated in the selected color.

Sabers with Claws, greebles, etc.
When selecting a saber that features greebles, claws or any additional aesthetic, those parts will not be powder coated. An example of what that may look like is provided below.

Curved Hilts & Cast Parts
Most curved sections of our hilts cannot be powder coated and will be left with their default finish. The exception being chrome parts such as the curved bodies we offer in Adaptive Saber Parts.
