Discussion on What color/ finish is ESB survival knife/shin tool? within the Boba Fett Costume forum, part of the Star Wars Original Trilogy Bounty Hunters category; knocked this together a couple of days ago, can anyone
If accuracy is your game, then you should do this:
The tube is still undiscovered, although there was a hint that it might be a microphone's casing, but with no direct results. My approach was that they used the Supertrooper/Pre-Pro #1 sling gun barrel (which is a (Tasco or related) hand telescope) but that was a dead end.

The color is somewhere in the range of the right ear's base color:
Thanks Rafal this helps a good bit, i've seen some shots of other shin tool knifes looking like it's a copper type finish with some silver color under it, and would
still be curious to see some of your finished ones.
I don't have shin tools, and the first two from the image are taken from someone's work (sadly I don't remember who was), while the tube is just an image of a steel tube in lack of actual found part.
You nailed that color! Great job!
Looking good brother, I'm going to start a set myself as soon as i get my rods from MojoFett.
Thanks Syper, Mojo does some great stuff indeed, i used two exacto knife grips cut down to size, trying to do as much as i can myself on a budget.
Working on my scratch built squeegee shin tool at the moment, just some paint to put down and it will be finished.
Good job , did you say you've made the shin tools yourself? if so great work
Yep ICEmonkey all scratch made by me using Alans templates. Armor too. thanks!
Wasn't sure if the top of the tool should also be painted, but I did it anyway!
And the rest of my shin tools. Now all original parts and how many years did that take!
Nice set bro!! ,looks like a real set of mitchells, are they?
They are, and took a long long time to acquire!
Kurtboy, who make your suit? It looks good.
