The F16 is comprised of an aluminum hilt with a 1 inch diameter blade holder and a 1 inch inside diameter (ID). A shroud extends from the hilt body until forming a rounded point beyond the blade holder. Cutout sections in the shroud reveal the grooved hilt body beneath. Dual 12mm AV switch holes are situated near the middle of the hilt on the front. The hilt is also drilled for recharge port mounting on the rear of the hilt.
The hilt diameter tapers in the lower body above the curved, turbine style pommel section. A interchangable pommel tip, flat or pointed, completes the turbine/engine aesthetic. The design features hidden sound venting in the pommel beneath the tip.
The user may mix and match parts from the the F16 hilt with Modular Hilt System V2 (MHS V2) parts from The Custom Saber Shop. All F16 hilt parts utilize MHS V2 threads.
The Custom Saber Shop states the hilt will be available in the following anodized color schemes at launch: bare aluminum (silver color, no anodizing), black/blue, black/red, and black/gold. A special fifth style called Launch Edition is blue/black “steel” in color. F16 Launch Edition is limited to 16 units.
The Custom Saber Shop manufactures the the F16 hilts in the United States out of American aluminum. The hilt’s F16 name and design are likely a nod to the F-16, one of the world’s most prolific fighter aircrafts.
