As we've heard from our factory and partners most customers don't pay much. But that's surely not something we can guarantee.

You are responsible for taxes and duties that your country may charge upon delivery. It goes from NOTHING to 30% of your order value in the worst cases. This is due to how customs work in your country, the duties and VAT % and if the parcel is caught and billed. To be fair we don't have a way to know for each of you, but we're working actively on bringing a way to bill this in advance for future orders. As of now it is not yet possible.


Any issue you have upon delivery we will examine in details with you. You have 1 year warranty on all sabers. If you want to know more about our warranty processes, see question below.

We also have a 14-day return policy.

Our customers experience with Very Bad Geek has been tremendous for the past 5 years, hundreds of them rating their web orders 4.8/5. We put customer support at the center of our business and expect us to do the same here with The Saber Factory.


Lightsabers and accessories have a 1 year warranty. Any issue you encounter you can reach out on the support chat, gives a detailed report and we'll get you sorted. We are very responsive to customer support requests.

Blades only have a delivery warranty as we do not cover them due to the dueling usage. Upon arrival make sure they work well or are in perfect condition.

When you order a saber from us you order a custom piece, made by hand. Hilts are machined but every board is soldered and programmed by a technician, verified and integrated into the saber's core. If you have any problem with one of our components we will analyze it together to determine the part to replace and will guide you through the process. We do not take the sabers back for repair, we directly send the replacement part to you and if repairs are deemed too complex we send a full core replacement so that it's much easier to re-install for you. We guide you through switching the part, it's usually never more than a few screws and 10 minutes of your time.

You need to feel comfortable following these few steps and disassemble your lightsaber (with our guidance only). We also have a Youtube channel to help with that. In the event you are unhappy, don't forget your 14-day return policy, you can ship it back to us.

Others may not tell you how their warranty processes go, even if they're the same, but we do. And we provide. This way you understand what type of product and service you buy. If you're looking for a fully integrated, non fixable piece of lightsaber that you can ship back across the world for warranty maybe Hasbro's sabers are better suited rather than a custom lightsaber. But even there, I'm not sure their customer service would be to your liking (I sold big brands merch for 6 years at Very Bad Geek, I can tell), which is why we work the way we work. To make sure you get the best for your money.

It is very important for you to check your delivery and notify us of any problem as soon as possible. We cover issues related to manufacture and shipping, but not usage. If you duel and break a piece we can hardly intervene. If you fail to follow the user manual warnings for charging power and fry the board, we cannot cover you either. Anything else we got you.


If your order has not made it to the production queue yet, it is possible to cancel it but there will be cancellation fees due to the various transaction and currency change fees that we do not get back. It'd be best to think it twice because once your order is on its way you'll have to go through the return process and the return package is at your charge. Contact us through the chat, it's always better than email (the junk inbox plays tricks on us). You can read our detailed policy here.


You can pay with your credit card through our secure payment gateway : ShopPay. ShopPay is powered by Shopify and allows multi-currency, charge-free payments with most credit and debit cards operators.


Get to know us here

The Saber Factory is the latest venture of Kevin along with Laurent and Olivier, a bunch of hardcore Star Wars fans and pop-culture enthusiasts.

As we own Very Bad Geek, a french pop-culture goodies store and website, we experienced first-hand the growing need of our customers for training and dueling sabers for academies and amateurs. Many battles had to be fought before we could expand our products lines (COVID amongst many..) but as Master Yoda said : "Do or do not ! There is no try !". The Saber Factory is now real, it is fully operational and there's no vent to blow us up.

You may not already know us for the Very Bad Geek shop and website. As it's mostly known in Bordeaux, France :D We are a 3000+ sq ft temple of pop-culture goodies, established in 2017, with Star Wars inspired decors (and "Barney", our very own Stormtrooper), a Manga/Japan themed space, two Harry Potter floors with a tea room inspired from Hogwarts' common rooms. Of course now you can find a Saber Factory showroom with demo sabers and we invite all of you who can to come visit us in Bordeaux, France.


Not for the moment but we are currently working on it. We hope we can soon provide you with custom work options wether it'd be for the hilts or the electronics. Stay tuned and subscribe to our newsletter at the bottom of the site.

Are the sabers delivered installed or in pieces?

All sabers are fully installed and ready to use. Just charge the battery for a few hours, screw the blade in place and you're ready to go.

Usually a saber is made of two parts : a core (containing all electronics) and the aluminium hilt. For troubleshooting or maintenance reasons you may have to disassemble the core from the hilt, but it's a pretty straight forward process and we have quick video tutorials on our Youtube channel.

Are your sabers screen accurate?

We sell sabers made by the leading factory on the market : Nexus Sabers (formerly LGT). They've perfected their designs, durability and electronics over years of presence on the market and it is why we trust them.

The design of replica sabers are much better than the official and legacy ones sold by Disney. In terms of proportion and built quality, absolutely no comparison, Nexus Sabers are way better. They're not made from an original cast or built with the real parts used back then by the props teams (like a real Graflex cell flash that goes for a fortune nowadays) but they've some of the best looks and proportions you can find. All sabers are newly machined with aluminium 6063.

Mostly, they are dueling sabers, filled with an electronics chassis and blades that need to fit and hold firmly. Meaning that compromises are achieved to make this a functional replica.

If you're looking for the most screen accurate replica of just a character's hilt, there are some amazing artisans that specialize in that, but for the same price as one of our neopixel sabers you only get the hilt and some builds will set you back more than a thousand bucks with 6 months wait. It all depends on what you're looking for.


No. Our partners have developed Xeno3 and we have gone this route instead of GHv3. As of April 2023 we ship Xeno3 on Standard and Premium sabers. Xeno 3 can be controlled via an iOs or Android app that's currently on open Beta. Simply search for XENO CONFIGURATOR in your app store.

Where can I download the Xeno 3 App?

The open beta of the app is available for iOs and Android. Search for XENO CONFIGURATOR. As it is a beta it may still have issues.


No worries ! We understand it's not easy to navigate between baselit blades, neopixel lightsabers, xenopixel boards... These technical terms may not ring a bell for you so we've explained everything simply with a chart available on each product page : WHICH VERSION TO CHOOSE (you can also access it by clicking the link here)


Standard blades are for Baselit sabers. They are very strong and made for dueling in academies and fencing courses.

Neopixel blades you get in our Premium and Deluxe ranges are more fragile. Not the blade itself, but the LEDs inside. You need to hold your hits and be mindful that a very strong hit or repeated big knocks could rupture a LED connection. These blades are more for friendly dueling, for the show, for cosplays or demos but not so much for academy training. Your fighting will need to be light or moderate. We cannot warrant them for dueling, only for showcasing.


Yes, check out our Youtube channel. We're just getting started and more content will be posted over time. We plan on covering the most asked questions anyone can have before and after ordering one of our sabers.
