Darth Maul TPM Lightsaber - Korbanth DM1

Darth Maul's Double Bladed Lightsaber - TPM Version



A shout out to Randy from Korbanth for this excellent hilt! I remember when I first saw the double bladed lightsaber on the big screen when I was 7 years old. This felt like that all over again!

 


Specs:

Korbanth Sabers DM1 hilt kit (latest version)
Hand painted emitters fins and grooves
LED bezels and rubber O-rings added to increase accuracy
TCSS DM1 infinity coupler
Custom 3D printed chassis in both sides
Dual Plecter Labs Nano Bisoctti v4 modules
dR/dR main blades with white FoC

The 3D printed chassis in each hilt is fully removable for easy SD card access as well as recharging. Two of the red buttons were modified with a plunger and spring in order to allow such a chassis system to be used.




The result - a saber befitting of the Dark Lord's apprentice...

Yup I was only a little tyke in second grade. My best friend and I were OBSESSED! :D As much hate as Ep. 1 gets, it hold s special place in my heart. It was the first new SW film I ever saw in theaters and part of the trilogy I grew up with.
