Greetings from the Dune Sea. This saber has changed many hands during the course of it's infancy and I'm glad to see it finally come into it's own. It's about now that I wished I had taken before and after pics so everyone could see what has been done to it. Cosmetically wise, I lathed down the MHS emitter and re-ground the edges, lathed down the MHS blank pommel. Instead of using the standard MHS grill we wanted to use something else, so Sand sources some really fine copper mesh screen material and we went with that. All the screws you see externally are there for a reason. Custom lathed switches for that rugged feeling and sleek interface feel. Form follows function on this build, an extremely rugged saber built for whatever sandpeople can throw at it.
Specs: Igniter r4 Big Pappa version 7.4v Dual 18500 pack x4 RGB blinky in the recharge box

5 of my current sabers have been built or rebuilt by Obi-Shane; it's that way for a reason folks- He is a master and the proof is in the details and the collaboration. He had the idea for the pommel and emitter. The filister screws are both necessary, and kept with the feel of the hilt, and the OT feel. Obi-shane built off a fine start from Darkside Engineering and Nico Diath.

ZahcStarKiller: Yeah I have to agree. I just happened to stumble across spot #1 on the orbital machining Obi TPM run and had the opportunity to purchase it. That is pretty darn close to happiness.
