Darth Revan Custom MHS Saber w/ Nano Biscotte v2.0
« on: March 02, 2015, 09:59:57 PM »
Hey Saberfans,

I am pleased to bring you a hilt that took a lot of work in early stages of design and communication with TCSS, but in the end resulted in a hilt that turned out perfectly. This is a Darth Revan MHS Hilt. Using heavily modified MHS Parts, and submitting a  blade holder design which led to the item in the TCSS Store BH#27, replicated look is nearly perfect to the original save to the alternate pommel, which the client requested.

I received the request for this hilt last year, and finished it a few weeks ago. The client being on a budget, stuck with the Nano Biscotte v2.0 and some legit LEDengine 5W Deep Red goodness. I finished the saber off with some sating black and trans copper powder coating. Couldn't be happier with the end result. Below are Pics and a video.

Awesome, man. The 5W LEDengine Deep Red is my absolute favorite single die red, hands down. PERFECT for this saber.

Thanks. I got mine from Powderbuythepound.com . Simple name is "Copper Transparent (SK162123)", doesn't look like it is available anymore on their site.

Thanks Guys, really glad to see you all liked how it turned out. :)

The powder coating took two tries to get right. Per a tip from Vader's Vault, pre-warming the piece helps immensely in getting an even coat when it comes to trans colors.
