Vader’s Vault Light Weathering

A hilt with Light Weathering is slightly tarnished in a few areas. The hilt looks like it has seen some battle and has lost some of the luster of a pristine, “as first built” hilt with no added weathering.

  1. I have asked Vader’s Vault several times in the past 8 months to make a section showing off their weathering levels, to no reply. Thank you for doing something they are not capable of.
