|Daring to go head to head with market leader Merr-Sonn, Xana Exotic Arms offers their lower cost alternative vibroblade. The Mastercraft, more of a sales gimmick than a descriptive term, offers the same 25-centimeter length as the Treppus-2 blade, but loses the optional sheath recharger. The power cell life of the Mastercraft is somewhat shorter as well. The first few production runs of Mastercraft vibroweapons had a faulty activator in their vibration generators, causing the unit to self activate while still in its sheath – cutting its way out and sometimes through the limb of the owner.
This is frequently the first purchase for the uninformed when seeking a vibroweapon. Most knowledgeable owners know to look elsewhere for dependability.
