Normally, we don't advocate for heavy grade blades. They throw off balance for the lighter sabers, aren't quite as bright as thinwall blades and they hurt. Bad. We've always felt that thinwall blades hurt good enough. However, the demand for heavy grade blades done with our style was too great for us to ignore so here they are: A 1" Vader's Vault, Dual Diffused Heavy Grade blade. All VV Dual Diffused heavy grade blades now come with a shine through illuminated Parabolic tip.




*Vader's Vault accepts no responsibility, or liability for any damage or injury done to person or property with the use of this product, use at your own risk*


*NOTE: We do NOT glue our blade diffusion film to the blade. Please be careful when removing the dust cap, and when removing the blade from your saber not to allow the film to fall out. When we first entered this industry, we had noticed several of our competitors glued the film into their blades and had creasing/krinkling of the film right at the point where the blade flexes the most. Saber blades flex, even when just swinging or spinning around. If you keep the film stationary and the blade flexes, the film will crease. Not gluing the film in allows the film to spiral in on itself and flex with the blade. When we developed our blades, we chose not to glue our film in and it turned out that the film will last much longer without creasing. After many hundreds of blades, we can say that this method allows for a long lasting, even blade. We have blades in the house that have seen years of use with no creasing. The only thing is, you have to take care when removing the blade not to let the film drop out and use your included dust cap to keep dust out, and the film in.

  • A bit heavier, but it does say heavy grade

    Posted by Robert Scott on 16th Jul 2019

    Naturally this is heavier than the dual diffused. This is desiged and designated for dueling, especially tournament style which requires certain specifications., and exceeds them. Again, quick shipping, best packing job I've seen vs competitors during shipping,

  • excellent quality

  • Heavy grade blades

    Posted by Erik Rimblas on 19th Mar 2019

    I have switched to using only Vader’s Vault heavy grade dueling blades for TSL combat. Not only is there no appreciable difference in the brightness of my saber while dueling, they are just as durable and to me actually feel lighter than others I have used. And lighter is better!

  • 1 inch heavy grade dueling blade

    Posted by Ethan on 12th Oct 2018

    I always love the thin wall blades for the better balance and brightness, but I was pleasantly surprised with these blades. They can take such a beating and still retain a good balance (feels like a real sword in which all the weight comes from the blade) . I was more surprised by their brightness than anything else. Sure they are not as bright as the standard blade, but it's barley noticeable in the heat of a duel. They are so much brighter and fuller than other competitors thick walled blades as well. I cannot recommend these enough to people who need some heavy duty blades for all out duels with friends.
