I am sensitive to adjusting prices and am aware that this is never easy on customers. However, I do need to make sure that my prices reflect the true cost of doing business and allow me to further invest and innovate in my business.
The price for a Saber depends on several things:
1. Development time
Each chassis part is designed from scratch. They all have to be developed and tested before I can use and sell them. That takes a lot time and money.
2. Material costs
Most chassis parts are expencive 3D metal prints. Additional to that all hilt-, blade-, electronic-, and assembly-parts are from very high quality.
Material costs for a complete Metal Master Saber are 1000€ to 2000€.
3. Working hours
I charge 35€ per working hour.
A Metal Master Graflex Saber needs approximately 100 working hours.
I only sell a small number of sabers. These are no mass produced items, but handmade unique exclusive pieces
