Korbanth, a United States based custom saber manufacturer, opened three new 2019 lightsaber hilts for pre-orders: AS2, Skinnyflex and OWK3. All three hilt designs are inspired by Prequel Trilogy lightsabers.
AS2 is inspired by the Anakin Skywalker Episode II: Attack of the Clones lightsaber, Skinnyflex is inspired by the Anakin Skywalker Episode III: Revenge of the Sith lightsaber, and OWK3 is inspired by the Obi-Wan Kenobi Episode III: Revenge of the Sith lightsaber.
The hilts are available for pre-order in limited quantities empty or installed (with Proffieboard). The empty hilts are also available in a discounted 2 or 3 hilt Saber Combo Bundle. Empty hilts are expected to ship in February 2019 and installed sabers are expected to ship in February or March 2019.
Both Skinnyflex and OWK3 will be packaged in an attractive black box with foam padding on the inside. ‘Korbanth’ is foil-stamped in gold on the exterior of the box. Since AS2 is being manufactured at a different shop, it’s unclear whether the hilt will be packaged in the black box.
Korbanth is known primarily for creating movie inspired lightsaber hilts. The company sells both empty hilts and installed sabers along with costumes, helmets, model props and saber parts.
