I finally finished my rendition of Darth Nihl's saber. I was going for a bio-organic/mechanical feel with this piece. I also installed the activation switch off center; in my mind a gnarly looking hilt like this would not have a centered anything. The total length of this beast is 61.5" (5'-1.5"). The blade is 27.5" and the hilt is about 34". This saber features: All custom PVC hilt, 1"thick walled trans white blade, Lux III red orange led with resistor, 5 degree lens, Obi Wan econo board, orange ring illuminated switch, a single 14500, 3.7V Li-ion TCSS premium speaker, and recharge port. This thing is as tall as my 10 year old daughter.
Thanks Jammo. This saber is pretty cool. I remember when I first saw the picture of Darth Nihl holding this saber. I was in awe, I instantly fell in love with this saber and started brainstorming ways I could build it.

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.
