Kylo's lightsaber

Post by KyloZen »

Any fellow Kylos out there who knows where I can find/buy a modified crossguard saber?
I'm looking for one where the blade has a ragged cover and the light is made more intense. I know it could be ordered from the US a while back, but I can't remember from whom. I think it was done with a Black Series saber as the base.

Grateful for any tip I can find!

Not sure where you can get a pre-modified one.

If you're thinking of the black series then my only comment on that is that the handle is very thick. I find it pretty uncomfortable to hold for long periods of time. It looks fine and can be made to be bright enough etc but there's not a hell of a lot that can be done about the size of the hilt :(

Thank you for warning me about the hilt. I'm a small guy and perhaps I need something that suits my size better.
I'll think about it. I've gotten a tip about a guy in Alaska. I'll try my luck there. :-)

Korbanth makes one, but generally Kylo's are quite thick.
The Phoenix Props V1 was a bit smaller, but they are rare and expensive nowadays.
