GETTING TO KNOW YOUR SABER

Throughout this user guide, we will be referring to various parts of the saber when explaining it’s features and care recommendations. As such, it is important to know the names of these parts to avoid confusion. The illustration below shows a Skylar however as all Sabertrio sabers are designed and built generally in the same way, the parts and its layout would largely be similar between saber models.

User Guide

THE SABER’S BLADE

Sabertrio has 2 types of blades; Standard & Neo. The blade type that you will receive with your saber is depending on the saber configuration that you have selected. Stunt & FX sabers uses standard blades where else Neo sabers requires neo blades for it to function and illuminate. 

User Guide

Installing the Standard Blade

  • The standard blade is meant to be used with an FX or Stunt saber. It will NOT work with a Neo saber.
  • Remove the dust cap from the blade. Be careful not to point the blade’s opening downwards as the film inside may slide out.
  • Fully insert the blade into the saber’s emitter. It is recommended to perform this with both blade and saber in a horizontal position for the same reason as above.
  • Once the blade is inside the saber, tighten the blade retention screw with the provided 2mm hex key that comes with the saber.
  • DO NOT over tighten the screw as it may damage the blade or screw threads on the saber.
  • The best practice is to tighten the screw gradually and test how secure the blade is by twisting it. If it is no longer able to rotate in the saber when twisted, it means that it is secure enough and you no longer need to further tighten the blade retention screw.

Installing the Neo Blade

  • The neo blade is meant to be used with a Neo saber. It will NOT work with an FX or stunt saber.
  • Insert the blade into the neo saber’s emitter. As the contact pins inside the emitter are spring loaded, push the blade in fully and hold it in place.
  • Tighten the blade retention screw with the provided 2mm hex key that comes with the saber.
  • DO NOT over tighten the screw as it may damage the blade or screw threads on the saber.
  • The best practice is to tighten the screw gradually and test how secure the blade is by twisting it. If it is no longer able to rotate in the saber when twisted, it means that it is secure enough and you no longer need to further tighten the blade retention screw.

BASIC GUIDELINES

Safety 

  • All Sabertrio FX & Stunt sabers are illuminated by Cree XP-E2 LEDs; an extremely bright LED that is categorized as a CLASS 2 laser.
  • Never under any circumstances should anyone directly look at the LED when it is illuminated.
  • If you intend to use your saber frequently without its blade, we recommend purchasing a blade plug. When inserted into the emitter of the saber, the blade plug will prevent a direct shine from the LED.
  • Neo sabers uses NeoPixel SK6812 LED Strips which are located inside the neo blade itself. It does not use Cree XP-E2 LEDs and therefore does not have this safety risk.

Battery Polarity

  • All Sabertrio sabers contains sensitive electronics that controls the illumination of the blade as well as sound and LED effects for Neo & FX saber configurations.
  • Never under any circumstances should the battery be inserted in the reverse direction. Triple-check the polarities BEFORE inserting the battery!
  • Damage caused by reverse polarity is NOT covered by the Sabertrio warranty.
