    Ah, cool! Not sure if I'll ever go that route with my current build but maybe if I do a darksider one later...
    There is no Light Side, nor is there a Dark Side; there is only the Force. I will keep the balance; the balance will keep me whole. There is no good without evil, but evil must not be allowed to flourish. There is passion, yet peace. There is serenity, yet emotion. There is chaos, yet order. There is no life without death. There is death, yet the Force. The Force is all things and I am one with the Force.

    Oh well for me, I'm using some solid-brass MHS parts I had custom-made. They'll get a nice patina on their own, maybe a little vinegar dabbed on to expedite the process, and along with that I'll be painting my Kenobi-style grip with some black paint then apply a bit of paint thinner with a sponge. After that, just regular handling should do the trick and naturally weather it. That's why I chose to do brass instead of powder-coating and then weathering.

    But for a darksider build, I like the idea of the lightsaber hilt "corrupting" itself the same way its crystal did when it was "bled"; so a baked-on olive oil finish plus some acid wear-and-tear should achieve a neat burnt look as if the dark side tainted the entire lightsaber from the inside out.
