I dig that hilt, and I double dig that art inspiration.

It was the initial release of the Deep Red LED that drew me in the direction to configure a saber that would compliment the red both in day and night and also omitted the use of timing shims with a Samurai Vader look.

Fantastic hilt, DarkJedi_7! A really great combination between the world of lightsaber and the weapon that it was inspired from, the katana sword!

Very nice. And quite unique. I've seen a couple of the samurai and ninja re-imaginings of Vader and this hilt fits perfectly with them. Well done. :)

I am late to the party but I have to second this! Simply amazing!

What inspired you to combine the Graflex and Katana pieces? It went together like peanut butter and jelly. Excellent!

The style of the black parts on the Redeemer on a subconscious level, aslo being the first Lightsaber that I purchased was the Darth Vader 1996.





Then in June/July of this year I began watching Samurai movies that influenced Star Wars to its basic core.

Samurai 7




and Sanjuro





Oishi's portrayal in 47 Ronin





Sitting on this configuration of ASP parts from August was agonising.... then receiving the shipment was a dream and building it was unbelievable. The covertech knob was reversed on purpose to act as a stop for the second hand, found the Graflex body too think and went with the Sorcerer body and Mauler switch, hence the name "Demon Kill".

Meditating while listening to 30 Seconds to Mars made creating the Akuma Kiru a reality.



Thank you Saber Forge, and everyone for your comments
