I wanted to start a main thread for DarkSaber reference. A little birdie told me to get ready for some new info coming out soon... feel free to share new images or news about the DarkSaber from The Mandalorian in here.
What we know about it
The only real info i have gathered on this Saber is that, the prop department doesn't like Giancarlo Esposito because he has broken 3 of them on set. Giancarlo Esposito also has said there is 2 types of blades used. See interview video below
Another interview with Giancarlo Esposito, he basically mirrors what he says in the video. BUT he has gotten into a Little more detail
“There are different ones made, one for close up’s one for CGI touch up, one with different blades”
“I’ve broken 1, 2, 3.... 3-1/2 maybe!!”
But what I find interesting is next he says
“The prop department doesn’t like me, he came up to me and said be gentle, this is the last one”
So maybe 4-5 are made for season 2?!
