Hi all,

This isn't a full review as I am in shock after receiving my Disciple this morning. I will edit this with hopefully better pictures when I can.
First off I have to say I was reduced to a shaking, gibbering mess when the toblerone arrived and I finaly unrolled my saber from the bubble wrap. It felt cold and warm at the same time and seemed heavier out of the box than when it was packaged!

The first thing I saw was the end of the blade plug surrounded by the mandibles of the emitter. Imagine this, you are a 7 or 8 year old kid and the Millenium Falcon looms out of it's box on Christmas Day morning and you see the two mandibles appear. The greatest present you have ever had?
This feeling doesn't even come close to the experience of unwrapping a Disciple!
The emitter continued to the perfectly milled rings and retention screws, the choke point and accent rings. Then I rotated the hilt to reveal the activation switch and the black anodized kill key! It didn't end there as below the kill key laid the beautifully wrapped Reptile Leather grip, cleverly positioned so the covertech knob helped secure it in place. The grip, tactile, soft yet not bulky or wrinkled. The covertech so well seated on the accent ring made it look all one piece. Then onto the shroud and pommel. Some people had misgivings when they saw the v2 pommel, myself included at first but it is brilliant as it enables you to use all of the shroud for your hand to sit comfortably in double hand grip (at least for me anyway.) Some pictures showed the pommel and it must have been slightly unscrewed as the v2 pommel imo isn't too long and it's accent ring lines up with the lip of the shroud. Inside the pommel the wonderfully machined speaker grill looked like a window from the Bespin Duel in ESB!

And to top all that off the saber is so slim yet still "fills" your hand, and something strange, when viewed close up in hand it looks "Just right" but when viewed from middle distance and further it looks longer and so more eyecatching.
With the blade the experience just becomes impossible to justify description as "Sabercore...Viridian!" can be heard then the gorgeous green lit AV switch is pressed then ...

You need to sense it for yourselves!

To say I'm slightly happy with my saber, is the biggest understatement of my life.
Thank you Saberforge and all the folks on this forum who advised me on my purchase.
All the accessories were present and correct.
Now a few pics! (Please note the Phoenix saber stand is the prize I received along with a Saberforge t-shirt for the recent ASP Design Competition)

I hope this was ok for a preview, I will edit it later,
Many thanks,

Hi Nebosa,

Indeed, thanks very much, I do need to dig out my digital camera though my tablet is terrible for taking pics!

Kind regards

Are you happy with the look of the blade plug or are you going to attempt to modify it?

Congrats, For! Your Disciple looks amazing... as a fan of green lightsabers, yours is top-notch.

I can't believe it arrived Christmas Eve... the only time I would have been expecting it less would be Christmas Day!

To Nebosa,

I think I'm going to be greedy and keep the apprentice plug and get a second plug to modify so I can change it with my mood.
(The saber is so perfect I really don't want to change anything but you know a little bit of tinkering etc!)

To Snakeeyz99,

Many thanks, as I said I can't believe how great Saberforge turned it out. I am really lucky as I wasn't expecting to see it for a while as I thought I would have a big Tax fee at customs to pay but it cost less and I could get it delivered.
Yes gotta love green!
Thanks again for your kind words,

Hi Borommakot,

Thank you, now all I have to do is learn to type with one hand, I don't want to put it down!

Thank you Gorobulus,

I still haven't got over the colour yet, as you'll know that green is awesome, and for the record I haven't fully charged it yet and the pics were taken at midday!

Thanks again,

There is a lot to love about the Apprentice sabers, and this one is a good example of what I mean!

I know the feeling you described of unpacking that saber, and beholding the weight, and the feel of it for the first time. Nothing quite like it.

Congrats on a fine saber sir!
Imagine what you will know tomorrow....

Hi Brax,

Thanks for the kind words, the saber does feel as if it were "otherworldly" it is solid and I believe someone used the word heft to describe the weight. I was introduced to Dav Yeager's Disciple (thanks Dav) and thought I was ready to experience my own, boy I was wrong.
My Disciple is resting beside me as I type (I gave up on one handed typing LOL^^) and will be for a looong time yet.

Thanks again,

Congrats! Everything about that saber is what I would have chosen as well. The green switch really pops too.

Hello yeek,

Actually your profile name sounded similar to one of the noises I made when I saw my saber for the first time!
That AV switch is really intense and you have to remember these pics were taken before fully charging it and at midday. I'm just waiting till darkness to really try it out! I have to be careful though I'm near an airport!

Kind regards

Thanks Greysider,

I had always liked green myself ever since Luke fired up his in ROTJ. I had posted a story in the thread "Instead of complaints, how about some stories" about how I "modified" my flashlight Lightsaber from white to green using a transparent sweet/candy wrapper. I was the only kid in my town with a green saber and loved it, I love my Disciple saber even more!

Thanks again for the kind words,

Thank you Dav,

Now I believe it's my turn to light the way...Green!



Note: This is still not fully charged as I didn't want to leave it overnight and it's five o'clock here in the UK!

Thanks again Dav for your reassurances!

No problem i'm glad you like it. I'm not sure about the champion but you should have no problem leaving it plugged in overnight it may take quite a while to fully charge

Fyi do not look at the lit led without the blade plug in you'll see green for 3 days lol
