Looks like a good time to try out the new forums search feature :)

Not too bad, do a search for 'tonfa' and you get a couple discussions on the subject that have come up in the last couple months. The only big issue over doing a standard hilt is that the joint where your tonfa handle meets up is going to be under a lot of stress so you wantto make sure you find something nice and solid. On the plus side you get a whole nother section to stuff with batteries :)

If it was me, I would just get the Maglite handle that was posted in one of those discussions. Seems like it would be way easier than trying to adapt a T-joint to fit a MHS saber.

That's just my opinion though.

it'll be tough but not impossible, Ambo did a couple that turned out real nice.
