This is the first saber from SF I installed, and it is still my favorite.

Here's the hilt:


This Epoch contains the following:
12W Frost White LED
White AV Switch
Spark 2 Soundcard
28mm Bass Speaker
Recharge Port (with old kill key! Yay!)

Now, I know what you're thinking! Yes, this is yet another frost white Epoch. What can I say, its a gorgeous combination! However, this Epoch is special. This Epoch has a unique crystal plug that I made out of random parts, in true Star Wars fashion.

Here it is:

Lit:


It's made out of a bunch of random hardware stuff and a coax cable end (type F I think), and I'm really happy with it. It mimics the blade, and really make this build pop. If anyone really wants to know the specific parks, I can go see if I can dig up the part names.

Oh, and here's the blade fully lit:


It's really quite beautiful. I made use of the NEC soundcard's "mix and match" function in regards to sound effects to create a unique font for this saber. I'll upload a video here if anyone cares to hear it.

There isn't much left to say here. This hilt is amazing. It's comfortable, it's beautiful, it ISN'T sharp (at least this version isn't), and it's right at home with the rest of my sabers. I suppose my only gripe with this hilt is that the windowed emitter is actually an inserted tube, and it will wiggle a lot if you fiddle with it. I put some layers of electrical tape along some of the sides and it hasn't budged since!

Thanks for reading!

Very unique modification Nerf. I like your crystal chamber blade plug, and the flipped emitter shroud, Genius!
Have you given any thought too milling the flat end to give it some aesthetic? Like a crown effect similar to the Relic emitter, anyway nice contruct!

Thanks everyone!
I saw your Epoch review Hotrod, which is what prompted me to make this one! Not much else to say about this hilt, if you read Hotrod's review haha.

Actually, I have. I was thinking something similar to the Archival Rose saber that GSC did a while ago, but that one has like 3 shrouds to create the "rose" imagery. I also don't have access to any sort of lathe or milling machine, only my trusty dremel!
