Thanks Jeff. When planning it out, I tried to keep it as simple as I possibly could (I live by KISS). I tried to take into account the use and abuse it will probably get at the cons, and didn't want to worry about having to pull it apart and fix it while in full costume. There's not really allot that can go wrong with it. If the rubber bands, or any other parts break, I have the option of a fairly easy fix, or locking the blades closed. I'm flattered that you decided to pare yours back based on this.alphatech686 said:Dude this is a really nice piece. Don't sell yourself short. Not many folks have come up with functional stuff that looks right and works.
Look at my last guantlet, like someone said on here it looks like a VCR strapped to my arm. I don't know if they were refurring to me but
they may has well have been. After reading about your build here I decided to pare mine back a little. Just today I shaved off the top of my blades
for that very reason.
