(Best Yoda voice)

Day blades, I have heard of. Know where to get them, you do?

Ok, so as most saber wielding Jedi know, these things don't show up in the daylight at all. I have seen many people get the polycarbonate tubes in a variety of colors. Where do these come from? Who makes them? Or do you just somehow alter a normal tube by inserting some kind of colored plastic? Any advice would be super awesome. *waves hand*, "You wish to tell me where to find/how to make these".

Excellent. I'm pretty crafty myself. I will look him up and see if he can suggest something.

If you are feeling very crafty there is a set of instructions on Make magazine's website about coloring PVC using dyes and solvents. This technique might also work on a saber blade, but I have never tied it for myself. I will second the recommendation to get in touch with Jonathan Licht. You can also order colored saber blades from The Custom Saber Shop, however they do not come with matching colored tips. If you have any other questions, I am more than glad to answer them if I can.
