Here's a little background information on this purchase:

During the craze from the first teaser trailer of TFA, my desire to own a duel ready professional lightsaber had awoken from its deep slumber. I stumbled across SaberForge when I was browsing lightsabers on YouTube. I was instantly amazed by their craftsmanship and their astoundishing quality. Their designs were intricate, very detailed, and had much more flair than other saber companies' designs. And that was when I discovered the Exhalted.

It was everything I had always wanted; my dream saber. It had the thin neck design of Obi Wan's and the silver and black grenade section of Luke's. And the major bonus of the hilt was that it had no control box for comfortability. It took many months before I could actually buy the saber. So I stared patiently at the Exhalted as more of TFA's trailers flew by. I purchased this saber on September 22nd and it arrived on Nov 7th. Someone do the math idk how long that is. :silly:

I gotta say it's a beauty:

It was much longer than I had expected, but it still was comfterable to hold. It looks almost exactly as it does on the website, HOWEVER there is one thing you should at least know:
The upper section of the Exhalted's thin neck is now copper. It is no longer anodized black. This is the standard for all Exhalteds now as it was confirmed by Knytiri himself.

The 12w is still very bright. There is some base flare, but it still is really really bright -almost blinding even. Deep blue was surprisingly much lighter than it appears on camera, it is a very bluish-blue. The led inside does tend to heat up inside the hilt but I'm perfectly fine with that.

Everyone I know is impressed with this thing. It is instantly recognizable as a lightsaber.

So a huge shoutout to the Saberforge team! I had many questions along the wait and they were very helpful and guiding through out my journey. So thanks Phil, Josh, Kevin, and everyone else who is part of the Saberforge Team. I'd also like to thank the forum here. You guys are very informal, helpful, and supportive. You guys rock!

This is my first purchase and I know it will not be my last!

I'll upload pics later so just bear with me. :)

Finally got around to make and post some of the pics. Here you go guys!







And the 12w Deep Blue basically destroyed my iPhone camera. I have to be honest here; it pretty much looks like the real deal.

Very nice! I really like the little bit of copper mixed with the gold in the neck of the saber.

Hi Doctor,

It did happen! We have pictures and a fine Saber you have! That blue colour is fantastic, no wonder you were "hiding" this Saber, folks will want to know if you're selling it!
Congratulations on your perseverance and arrival!

Thanks for sharing

Interesting. So that emitter is essentially the ASP redeemer 3? or at least very close.

It looks beautiful mate :) hope you enjoy it.

Deep blue is such a great color for this saber. It worked wonderfully.

And yeah I was surprised that the standard is copper. Not going to lie, I was a little bit disappointed. However, it's grown a lot on me and I can't imagine mine without it.

Glad you all enjoyed! :cheer:

Love it! Pretty sure this is the one I'm getting too. How'd you decide on Deep blue? I'm stuck between that an medium.

Can you speak to the balance of the Exhalted?
Especially if you were to use a mid-grade blade, rather than the V4? I'm thinking about buying one for combat, and balance has become a big factor.
Aesthetically speaking, this is my favorite saber on the market.

I honestly couldn't decide. Honestly I like the blue shown in ROTS because it was unique and is my favorite shade of blue.

Medium Blue looks great from what I've seen and it looks like the blue shown in ESB, TPM, AOTC. If you like what the blue looks like in those films, go for Medium Blue.

After holding it for a few mins, the balance point would be at the top part of the grenade section. Using one hand is pretty tricky since its heavier one one side than the other, but it feels great using two hands to hold the hilt.

I think a light blade, (a short one too) would definetly help. It'll feel faster for sure.
