Weathered Descend*nt 12Watt+ Blood Orange


Just because it’s another Thin Neck. Yes, the vowel omission was intended. Much like there is debate with punctuation over Veridium, Veridian, Viridium, Veridum & Viridian and splashing around in the same pond as Exalted, Exhalted; Descendent, Descendant provides no clarity either. So until one is chosen or decided on (or I decide which to go with), insert any vowel or nothing at all to where the asterix stands.

This was released around the same time as Mercenary and whilst both had their respective appeal, one trumped the other (and No, the other isn’t Clinton). Another assembled configuration born from ASP Parts similar to Emerald Knight and Justicar. This however, features the newer version Thin Neck as seen on Shadow Hunter and ASP Emitter8. First obvious difference (or similarity) is the Emitter end-cap. Unlike the smaller & narrower type used on Chosen or the Fluted Crown on Forsaken, this actually takes shape and form from SFs OT Thin Necks. On a much shorter Hilt, relative to combined length consistent to proportions of Apprentice Tiers, the larger head stacks the end result into a cute little nugget of a Thin Neck Saber. Less noticeable on the OT Thin Necks of the Elite Tier as the greater length balances proportions a little more effectively. That said though, with its stubby appearance, if coupled with the smaller Chosen Emitter Cap, it would be strange.

Quad Cree 12Watt+ Blood Orange| Champion Tier| Sabercore2.0 Crimson Font|
Black aluminium knurled kill key*| weathered covertech| Black AV, Red-lit| weathered finish

*Series of Three (left to right): Exalted, Descend*nt, Prodigal Son.
Exalted and Redeemer share the same use of the Emitter Cap where it features the extra detailing of the drilled holes on the flange. Descend*nt takes cues from this. While the central flute is flush to the flange face for Exalted & Redeemer, Descend*nt incorporates the longer extension as typically seen on Prodigal Son. Recent New Edition/Addition Thin Necks have seen this adopted as demonstrated with Chosen & Forsaken (concealed by the fluted Crown design). However it still extends longer than PS and actually shares design influences from Shadow Hunter. Possibly as a reinforcement measure to strengthen the inserted blade and encourage more stability.


Feature Thin Necks (from left to right):
Chosen, Shadow Hunter, Prodigal Son, Descend*nt, Exalted, Redeemer and Forsaken.


Prodigal Son up top versus Descend*nt.


Top to bottom: Chosen, Descend*nt, Shadow Hunter.


Three ignition (top to bottom for colour separation):
Chosen = Medium Red, Forsaken = Deep Red, Descend*nt = Blood Orange


The best that can be achieved by image capture. The Red Spectrum (top to bottom):
Amber, Blood Orange, Red, Medium Red and Deep Red.
Avoid focusing on the coring effect rather, gauge the colour representation in the corresponding spaces directly below each blade.


Following direction by h2soy, demonstration of Assass-in(out). Arse Transplants.
(Pommels from left to right):
Gladius (stock), Black Lotus, Justicar (ASP Pommel4), Exile, Katana.

(Pommels from left to right):
Chosen, Emerald Knight (ASP Pommel9), Sinister Prophecy (Venom), Juggernaut, Avenger.


A deceptively adorable little Hilt after the first impression of it being a pudgy little bastard. Its smaller stature commands a single hand wield however dimension will allow and accommodate a comfortable dual wield handled weapon also. The Sorcerer Body is generously comfortable. In appearance, comparable to the Graflex T-Grips but filed down resulting in a smooth, uninhibited grip. What may heighten ergonomics would be to delete the covertech placement and swap out the Gladius stock Pommel with a Graflex Pommel with mounted D-Ring. The gradual step-down to the Gladius Switch section as it joins the TN Adapter is relatively smooth and fluid and there’s sufficient accenting recesses and contrasting directional lines and opposing rings that complete the character detail.


Nice little Saber. Happy Days.



Thanks!

Glad to see a hilt without any issues!

I'm in love with Blood Orange as a blade color.

Very nice, congratulations! Another quality addition of thin necks by Saberforge!

I received my dual tone version this week.

Man, I'd like to buy that Redeemer emitter with Prodigal nipple for a TFA Luke.

Nifty hilt. *thumbs up*

I know right!? Was looking hard for some kind of discrepancy or imperfection and well.. couldn't find one. Agreed, BO has lotsa luurve. Mind you, if you just simultaneously ignite Red with Deep Red you may as well have a BO lit also next to the dR. :)

:lol: You and I, we seem to have similar items in our respective Shopping Carts with the hilt4hilt repeats between us. With the exception of Crossguards of course and yours are V1 where I tend to favour the V2 route. What colour did you go with for your V1?

Maybe an empty from Etsy to transplant the neck and emitter cap onto another? :whistle:
Agreed. The primary highlight of Redeemer with a PS. Great marriage. But if that from the PS is a nipple?... Dayum! :ohmy:

I actually stripped the vertical black anodised lines between the raised body ridges and repeated the same with the horizontal black anodised rings on the TN Adapter and... again on the emitter to highlight the redeemer ring. :P Only did the middle section of the Neck 'cause afterwards with the smaller sections on either end of the neck... CBF! :lol:

I really like this hilt, but I was afraid that the difference in diameter between the body and the switch section would be drastic and uncomfortable. I'm really glad to hear it's comfortable. You and H2Soy both have now confirmed I need this hilt, ha.
