This is a Korbanth K4 with illuminated Goth 3D crystal chassis reveal and Prizm 5.1. It is a product of many hours of research and hard work. The K4 hilt itself has undergone multiple modifications to make it more accurate to the original prop, such as correcting the profile of the upper grenade section and windvane area with a metal lathe, removal of the clear anodizing from the pommel and then mirror polishing it, installation of a more accurate d-ring, refinishing the aluminum grenade section, etc. It has been painstakingly weathered to be accurate to the original.The piece has a nice, realistic weight to it and feels like a very well used and worn item. There is no paint on the saber aside from some flat black enamel in the "hole" in the blade plug and a matte acrylic clear coat over the darkened windvane area (but not over the brass neck area). Fullers Earth was also used. The weathering job is very convincingit is heavily weathered, but in an accurate and tasteful way that adds to the strong character of the hilt. The crystal chamber features a blue tanzine aura quartz crystal and a solid bronze chamber piece. The crystal is illuminated by a blue LED which lights up and reacts in sync with the main blade LEDs. Its a beautiful display piece and a very accurate replica. It is not meant for dueling as the blade socket is quite shallow.
Thats just how the hilt is designed since it is a thin-necked saber. The saber also includes a custom made blade plug. In order to install the blade, you have to unscrew the outer emitter shroud to access the set screw holding the blade plug in place, loosen that, insert the blade, retighten the set screw, and screw the emitter shroud back up into place.Be careful not to torque anythingset screw or emitter shroudvery tightly. This is not necessary as the saber is not built to withstand dueling, so hand-tight is all that is needed. The electronics consist of a Plecter Labs Prizm v5.1 sound board with a royal blue - blue - white tri-cree (white for Flash on Clash). It has a 20mm bass speaker from TCSS and a 2.1mm recharge jack. The battery is a TCSS 3400 mAh 3.7v 18650. Included are an allen wrench for the blade set screw, a new 35 TCSS 7/8 thin-walled trans-white blade with cellophane diffusion and a clear round mirrored tip, and a 3.7v battery charger. The recharge port is located at the bottom of the chassis, and features a rotating kill key to easily turn the saber on/off. In order to recharge the saber, you simply remove the kill key and plug in the charger.
SD card access is achieved by unscrewing the booster/pommel section, lightly tugging on the chassis, which pulls down about 4-5mm to reveal the inner section holding the sound board. From there, you need tweezers to remove the SD card. First you must push in on the card until it pops up, then it is ready to be removed.
This should only be attempted if really necessary as it can be challenging to see where to reinsert the SD card. A link is posted below to a video about this saber which shows how to do this. The motion parameters of the hilt have already been tuned and several sound fonts are included, so it does not require any modification in that regard to be fully functional. A video about this saber can be seen here.Thanks for looking and dont hesitate to ask any questions you may have.
