Korbanth has unveiled the SK2-Rogue Master lightsaber hilt. The custom saber is inspired by the Starkiller lightsaber in the 2010 video game The Force Unleashed II (TFU2). The lightsaber, which includes a blade plug, will be sold as an empty hilt or as an installed neopixel saber. Korbanth is targeting a late May 2020 release date for SK2-Rogue Master.
The installed version of SK2-Rogue Master would be configured as a neopixel saber (Proffieboard or CFX versions). Additionally, Jesse Kirkbride of Kyberphonic Fonts will develop an exclusive sountfont pack for the installed lightsaber.
The prototype SK2-Rogue Master hilt, which is subject to design changes, is primarily metallic silver in color, including a bright metallic color and a darker metallic color. The design features a slanted emitter (s-curve shaped), a red greeblie near the emitter section, and an activation box on the side. A leather or cloth wrap in the lower grip section of the hilt is available as an optional upgrade. A blade plug is included. SK2-Rogue Master is designed to accommodate a 1 inch diameter blade.
In addition to releasing the standard hilt finish, Korbanth released two other hilt finish variations: Korbanth SK2 Rogue Master Antique Silver finish and Korbanth SK2 Rogue Master Antique Gold finish.
Korbanth previously offered a different Starkiller custom saber design named SK Rogue Apprentice in 2019.
Korbanth, a United States based custom saber company, specializes in limited runs character inspired lightsaber hilts. The company releases empty hilts and offers a more limited selection of installed lightsabers as well.
