My saber was finally delivered!
And may I say it is beyond expectations. It was delivered yesterday and I have had some time to play around with it, I even brought it to work so I can procrastinate all day with it. I ended up ordering a 12W Warrior tier red weathered Acolyte. I am hoping to use this with a Sith Acolyte costume I am working on. Please note this is my first saber with Saberforge and first saber of this caliber I have ever had. With that in mind let’s dig into the pros and cons.

Pros:
-hilt is sturdy and made to last
-weathering is done with precision and a keen attention to detail
-12W is bright, bold, and beautiful

Cons:
-the blade seems to have a bit of wiggle room when in the hilt. I have read about this before and fixed the issue by adding scotch tape to the bottom rim of the blade
-the balance is not what I am used to in a saber but I may end up changing the blade length from the provided 37 inch to the 32 inch and see what happens

I figured I would keep it short. Let me know what you all think about it. I may change up the paint scheme a little bit by using plasti dip. I will put the question up in open topics soon, but has anyone tried using plasti dip on SF hilts to change up the color?

Here are some pictures of the saber and a sneak peek of my sith acolyte costume.










Thank you for reading!

This makes me even more excited about my incoming acolyte. That mask is awesome! May I ask where you got it or if you made it?

I bought the mask off Esty from Bigwater99. I do not have the space, resources, and probably the skill to make the mask myself :unsure: . Bigwater99 makes some good quality items, some stuff is a bit pricy, but the acolyte mask was a great buy.

Nothing says sithy goodness like a freakishly bright red blade, and a black or weathered finish. Very nice!
Imagine what you will know tomorrow....

The mask does look pretty good!

But the Etsy shop you bought it on certainly is pricey ... :/

Share the whole look with us once completed please!

Hey, did you end up figuring out if the 32 inch blade is better? Thanks
