Chromed korbanth Dooku by jqsabers
« on: May 31, 2015, 10:42:36 AM »
COUNT DOOKU
CHROME PLATED HILT
Korbanth hilt finished and instaled by JQ Sabers


saber specs
steel korbanth hilt
chrome plated
crystal shard 2.5
3,7v rechargable battery
cree copper nova RRW led
white foc
mini 2W speaker
custom brass activation and fx buttons
custom kill key

This one was in a bit of a state when i 1st recieved it from korbanth as the finish was very rough (from the steel casting process) and i knew right away that "that
" finish just wouldnt cut it, so i sent it to jq sabers who was luckily also doing a batch of other korbanth hilts and was sending them for chroming,
the chrome effect is absoutely vital for this saber thers no other finish other than chrome imo for this saber and the chrome plating is very nice indeed, jq did some intense sanding and smoothing to get the hilts up to scratch for the platers (superb effor by daren and im grateful he did that extra work here)
the color on the elbow section is great and contrasts very nicely with the chrome while the work on the brass switches is great =slightly of center just like the MR LE  8)
also got to mention this saber is a dead weight and feels great in the hand, thats mainly down to the steel construction it feels solid and weighty you would not want to drop this one on your toes  :))

overall im VERY happy with the finished result and it really is a great addition to any saber collection, its gone from a rags to riches saber! it just goes to show what can be acheived with a little extra work, to complete the look i had a stand and made a custom metal name plate, i also love the chrome effect blade plug which makes it look all MR LE! thanks to malaki skywalker for that
thanks to korbanth and special thanks to jq for knocking this one out the ball park superb job all round!


thanks for looking

WOW!!!  Very very nice Scorpion!  Best functional Duke I have seen to date!  Love the design of the sound holes too, Daren really worked his magic!  That's good about the heavier hilt, I am thinking it would allow for a longer screen accurate blade and still have good balance.

Looks like a MR piece! The chrome finish came out great, it looks perfectly screen accurate.
