Cleaning an FX blade

Post by Lumpy » Tue Jul 02, 2013 8:26 pm

Just picked up a Yoda FX saber, but the blade has some "battle damage." Anyone one know a good and safe way to get scuff marks off the blade???

The magic eraser works great on TK armor. It should work if it isn't paint. I would hate for it to come off.

It's on the blade which I think is just plastic or acrylic. It's clear whatever it is.

Novus 1, 2 and 3 if you are looking to get scratches out of any plastic material. Your nearest TK should have some.
