The Shadowcrest Design Mando lightsaber is a katana-style metal hilt with a mostly uniform diameter and slightly flared pommel. A 3.5 inch OD tsuba (hand guard) attaches near the hilt’s blade holder. The hilt measures 16 inches long–a length suitable for two-handed dueling. A pre-drilled, recessed activation switch hole is situated below the tsuba. The “blank canvas” simplicity and elegance of the hilt design makes the hilt extremely customizable in appearance and accommodating to acid etching, powder coating, wraps, etc.

The Mando lightsaber is available as an empty hilt or installed as a stunt saber (light only, no sound). Shadowcrest Design offers custom acid etching and etching with powder coating services as well. Other Crystal Focus 10 (CFX) in-hilt or neopixel options are available through Shadowcrest Design’s partnership with SithLord Sabers.
