I loved the korbanth TPM I had. It's not a great dueler though when wearing a robe. Those pommel cubes love to snag your cuffs. Unless you're in the Rebel Legion Or costuming it won't be that big of an issue. Just something to consider.

My understanding is that the Korbanth Obi TPM is closer to accurate than the K4 is. For me, the ultimate Obi ANH is the Roman's (I have one and it is EPIC), so I myself am planning to eventually pick up an Obi TPM.
Luke Skywalker, how was the quality of the Korbanth Obi TPM? I hear this current model is really really accurate. Can you confirm?
Of the two Obi TPM by Korbanth is the better overall hilt. Easier to install, pretty accurate, and generally a nice hilt. Probably my favorite Korbanth I've had, and favorite overall Obi though I never saw the Wat one in person. The K4 takes a lot of machine work of the inner structure to even get an install, and the emitter doesn't really work with for a blade. I ended up having arkhan make a brand new one for me. So unless you really like an install challenge, then I'd go with the Obi TPM.
profezzorn: hey ARKM, did you ever write a that tutorial on the toner transfer method?

ARKM: *waves hand* "I'm not the slacker you're looking for"

ARKM: Sadly no. Well, that's not entirely true. I did finish writing it but did not perform the steps and take pics of said steps.

ARKM: So it's like "Step 5: Using the high temperature temp, tape the paper with the design on it onto the metal part to be etched."

ARKM: ... but there's no Pic 4.

profezzorn: from other things I've read it's just PNP blue with some heat and pressure applied, right?

ARKM: Some use that. I could not get successful results with it but others have.
Jun 23, 2017 16:47:16 GMT -5
profezzorn: so what do you use?

ARKM: I personally use glossy magazine pages. I just rip a page out of a magazine and put it in the printer. The pages have to be the right thickness for the printer though. Too thin and they rip in the printer.
