Xiphias - Tims Lightsaber

Xiphias Lichtschwert von Tim

Xiphias is a custom lightsaber which was built by Tim back in 2009 and the first MHS based lightsaber in our team. 
The hilt is inspired by Anakins and Obi-Wans lightsaber from the movies and shows a few similarities.

The lightsaber was used in every single show until 2014. You can see the scratches and minor defects of the many battles where the saber fought against Sith on stage. Tim may not use it any more on stage, but it will always have a special place on our booth, for pictures at events and will still be used for workshops.
