ZERO.1 (Black & Matte Black)


Created for the DIY crowd, the ZERO.1 is as well-suited to the advanced smith as it is to the novice building their first saber. Both removable and fixed chassis systems are supported and there is ample room to accommodate most configurations.

Grab a hilt here, then head over to the Grip Sets and Choke listings if you’d like to customize one or both with a different finish. (Etsy has some significant limitations when it comes to offering multiple options. If you don’t see what you’re looking for, send a message and I can create a custom listing for you.)

This listing is for a complete hilt, which includes the following parts in black anodized aluminum:
Choke Base
Small Grip
Large Grip

Available finishes (see additional listings):
Raw aluminum (traditional gloss, perfect for etching)
Clear anodized aluminum (a smudge-resistant satin finish)
Matte anodized aluminum (a grippy texture similar to a very fine-grit sandpaper)
Black anodized aluminum (for that dark side look)

Additional finishes for grip sets and chokes:
Knurled (raw aluminum and black anodized; grips only)
Matte black anodized (grips and choke)
Brass (choke only; will age/patina)

Why call it by its part number, ZERO.1? Because they who wield it, name it.

All parts are designed, machined, and anodized in Virginia (USA).
This listing is for one complete hilt (no electronics included).
Blade retention has not been drilled and tapped. Message me if you would like this done prior to shipping.
