This is the first saber I have ever owned. Before now I have held nothing other than cheap plastic toys, so I honestly don't know how to review this saber in any way that would do it justice. And because of that I don't think I will even try. I love this thing. It is solid, beautiful, the light and color is amazing, and igniting it feels perfect. Since I don't know really what to say, have some pictures, as I've always been told they are worth lots of words each.









And here are some with me wielding it.







I guess that is all I have. Get an Epoch.

Hi Tuckris,

Big Congrats! And the photos spoke volumes! Very impressive saber.

kind regards,

Thanks! I got the robes from Twin Rose Designs(I tried and failed to make my own first, and am honestly glad I did, because these are perfect for me.

You are going to love your yellow. The very first time I lit it up, I did think it looked a touch green, but only I thought so, and I quickly lost it in the yellow. You will be super pleased.

Greysider, and Ottomatix: Thank you I am super happy with my choice!

Yeah just due to the differences in power needs between the green and amber dies the green will be more prominent on a full charge. Once it gets closer to empty it will look more orange.

Awesome looking saber! I'm not a particular fan of either the Epoch or Yellow (tend to lean towards Amber and B. Orange), but they look great together and in your hands!

Yup, I was expecting it from reading before ordering.

Thanks, I am happy with the combination. I know there doesn't seem to be a lot of love for either (not like hate, but people seem to nothing them), but there should be. I guess we all have to find our own way in the force, though. ;)

The Epoch is a beautifully saber, those emitter windows are just a great detail. I still prefer the previous version though.
Light and darkness, you cannot have one without the other. To achieve equilibriem you must be in harmony with both; the path between.

Nice pics and congrats on getting your first saber! I do like the 3 window design of the epoch and the yellow reminds me of KOTOR. I may eventually have to get a quick connects yellow LED, but first I need my sabers to arrive. Enjoy!

Thanks all!

I used it this morning at the gym, as part of my daily exercise (It is a apartment gym and nobody else uses it at 5AM) and man was it more fulfilling than the mocked up saber I had been using. *I just use a heavy bag and work swings and spins into my punching/kicking routine.

I like it. Mind you I haven't held a 32" so that could change my opinion. Also, with the Epoch, the blade sits quite deep into the hilt (I mean, it has to get below those windows!).

So, I think for this particular saber 37" is the way to go.

Do it! Bask in the sun of a yellow blade!

The previous version seems to be preferred by a lot of people. Honestly though, I love the elegance of the current version, and the vertical windows add to that for me. I don't think I would have settled on the Epoch had the old version still been current.

It's quite impressive to see how well the Yellow is coming out. THIS is yellow! All I can achieve with my RGB set up on my Monarch is a gold-ish color, which is not exactly what I want.

Anyway, that's a very nice saber and an amazing review my friend. Congratulations on your purchase, awesome saber ;)!

Oh man that yellow <3 !! I cannot wait to have my own yellow LED-ed hilt. Not usually a huge fan of the epoch but this one kind of changed my mind. Beautiful saber!

Love the Epoch, such a streamlined looking saber!

I am curious about the yellow though...never seen one in person

Is the yellow really bright? I would imagine yellow to be one of the brighter colors but recent forum discussions have me confused

That streamlined look was one of my deciding factors, I want more sabers (of course, don't we all) but I am extremely happy that this was my first one.

Despite it, as the other thread seemed to suggest, maybe not being as noticeably bright as other colors (I don't know because I have only seen mine in person) I think it is still very bright and don't think it would anyone would say otherwise in person.
In fact I used it as a light the other evening as I had nice scotch on my balcony.



Looks plenty bright to me :-)

Tuckris first off your saber is excellent.
Cmasters, yeah I wasn't to keen on that topic either. Someone with the LED in question, and one to make a comparison, is only trolling the forum. When those topics pop up be sure that you take them for what they are.
