Kota lightsaber is comprised of a steel hilt exterior with inner aluminum core. A heavyweight canvas strip is tied around the knurled thumbscrew and a brown leather wrap extends around the lower part of the hilt. The included blade plug completes the look of the hilt. Hilt features a complex and artistic ‘lived-in universe’ sensibility throughout.
Hearts of Kyber weathers the genuine leather wrap and also applies ‘grime’ pigment to the canvas strip, frays the edges, and adds a invisible fixative in order to prevent additional fraying of the canvas material. The company applies detailed, textured and complex weathering to each steel hilt body as well, creating burnished/rounded and darkened edges and applying a selective chemical and heat torch treatment. Hilt details including the knurled thumbscrew and Covertec wheel feature weathering as well.
