Trautman Art Glass-53 Darth Badger is a non-reactive reddish amber on “the dark side.” A darker, more saturated version of the Honey Badger, the Darth is very nice in applications where you want to use an amber very thin and still show amber, or where you just want a darker and richer shade. It is highly saturated with colorants, however, and will boil if heated too fast. Non-reactive and works in any atmosphere, but prefers to be worked higher up in a bushy soft flame.
Rods are about 7-8mm in diameter, 19 inches long with about 10 rods per pound. Sample half rods are 9 inches long.
