This was a hilt that USE to belong to OBI-WAN KENOBI
. BARRISS OFFEE
acquired it and use it during her training sessions, ...Im guessing.
Anyways, ...she mailed it to us to "make it all pretty" as she told me. I wasn't sure what she meant and I was out of ribbons and unicorns, so I just sent it over to Master Jedye to powder coat.
I asked that he cut a slit in the angle emitter, ....he took that to mean something entirely different, ...or just ignored my request and did what he wanted to do, .....which I think came out pretty nice.
ANNYWAYS, ...before we started on it, ...I suggested to BARRIS OFFEE to just let me buy it since there was kid in our area who really wanted one, and Halloween was approaching WAY to fast to have the acolytes ready.
She would not allow me to buy it if it was being donated.
So I guess long story short, ....BARRIS gave us a hilt to repair to give away to a kid in our area. Them Jedi chicks are so sweet!
Powder coated the hilt in a red/black theme, polished the hilt, and of course added my favorite accesory, ...1/8" automotive chrome trim and some new guts, (R/O LUX III LED).
Once again, thank you BARRIS OFFEE for donating the hilt and making a kid EXTREMELY happy. He'll actually be coming over tomorrow, so he'll get it then, ...might have some new pics later.
