Saberforge unveiled the DarkRey lightsaber, a double-bladed folding lightsaber. The custom saber is inspired by the design of the Dark Rey lightsaber that’s shown briefly in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019). Saberforge had previously released the ‘repaired Graflex’ style ReyFlex lightsaber earlier in 2019.

The Saberforge DarkRey lightsaber will use a specially-designed, spring-loaded folding mechanism. Saberforge founder Phil Isherwood describes the mechanism as using “spring detents for the folded mode with a lock for open [mode].” Isherwood states the company is also adapting the new folding mechanism into an Adaptive Saber Parts (ASP) version as well. The ASP folding mechanism / hinged connector would connect two ASP lightsaber hilts together.
Saberforge states that pre-ordering for the DarkRey lightsaber will open soon, targeting a shipping date in March 2020. The company has not yet announced pricing information for the item.
Saberforge, based in the United States, offers a wide selection of custom lightsaber designs as well additional customizing options for lightsaber enthusiasts.
