Hey everybody,

Ever since Moff Gideon sliced through the tie fighter at the end of season 1, I have wanted to make a darksaber to go with my Mando build. This is an interest thread for the production of a screen accurate anodized aluminum darksaber HILT. Details below.

  • Here is a proof of concept file for visuals. File by Valentine Costumes
  • We are in talks with a local machine shop that specializes in small to medium parts
  • Price projected to be $200, subject to change
  • Anodized black with silver highlights
  • Working on electronics compatibility
  • This hilt will be compatible with The Saber Trade's blades on Facebook. This will have a more screen accurate blade orientation than Hasbro
  • First run will have a deposit of $75. If successful could become multiple runs

Hey everyone,
Great news! We have confirmed the machine shops interest in our project, he is working with us on our design and its manufacturability. The wait time for the shop is 3 weeks once the design is ready, so we are trying our best to prepare our design to get to that point. We will see how the booking situation works out.

With that being said, we are working to have our hilt design tweaked to be as accurate as possible. Overall this is going very well and hope to spread the word some more. If anyone has any questions or concerns, please feel free to ask them here! Especially all of the new people since our last major update.

Good question. We originally wanted to do two different inserts, one for display and one for the blade. But we have since decided to combine them into two for the best of both worlds while staying as accurate as possible. Hope this helps.

- Malibu
Quoting so we can get some more opinions? Now that we are getting closer with the design, we are trying to figure out the best way to attack the accent lights. We would like to have them hollowed out to use the light from the blade stem, and for them to use a piece of frosted acrylic to diffuse the light. Opinions?

Let us know what you think!
