Many lightsaber enthusiasts are talking about Bendu Armory, a new custom lightsaber manufacturer, because of the release of their carbon fiber lightsaber. Most current duel worthy lightsaber hilts are made from aluminum. Bendu Armory has developed the first carbon fiber lightsaber, or at least the first widely released carbon fiber lightsaber, on the market. Everyone’s talking about the carbon fiber hilt’s weight, balance, durability and resilience compared to existing aluminum hilts.

But the most exciting part about Bendu Armory is NOT the carbon fiber material. The most exciting part about Bendu Armory is their development of the Quick Swap Chassis. The Quick Swap Chassis allows the lightsaber wielder to quickly and easily swap the shell of the lightsaber hilt out and switch to a different shell with a different design.
In other words, Bendu Armory’s Quick Swap Chassis enables a lightsaber enthusiast to use only ONE chassis for ALL of their Bendu Armory hilts. One chassis for multiple hilts sounds both convenient and cost effective for the buyer, considering that the internal electronics tend be some of the most expensive parts of a lightsaber. An easily removable chassis could also simplify repairs or modifications to the electronics.
