“Vaapad is as aggressive and powerful as its namesake, but its power comes at great risk: immersion in Vaapad opens the gates that restrain one's inner darkness. To use Vaapad, a Jedi must allow himself to enjoy the fight; he must give himself over to the thrill of battle. The rush of winning. Vaapad is a path that leads through the penumbra of the dark side…This was Vaapad's ultimate test.” - Mace Windu2)
“I created Vaapad to answer my weakness: it channels my own darkness into a weapon of the light.” - Mace Windu3)
Although the EU has attributed this hilt to Eeth Koth4) the movie gave him this hilt to wear in TPM and thus is attributed to Mace here. It's possible that the EU changed this due to the fact that the screen shots Mace can be seen wearing one style hilt, but the TPM insiders cdrom and the visual dictionary show another. LSA has attributed the screen accurate piece to master Windu here.
