After a long wait my Gladius has arrived and let me tell you, it's amazing! I got light blue as my color and a brown leather wrap.

The hilt is GORGEOUS. It's well made and handles pretty fantastically. One or two handed it works either way!

As far as rough edges go, the only ones I've found are the vertical grooves next to the ignition button, they are deep and fairly sharp but in my handling you don't feel it so I think it's fine.

The wrap is attached snugly, we shall see how well it holds up over time and lots of handling. Worth the wait my friends :)

Edit: Wow it's been a long year. Anyway, I'm adding a new pick of the saber on a stand. As an update as well, the wrap is still firmly in place and the saber is behaving like a gentlemen. I will admit to occasionally using it as a flashlight though lol.

Congragulations! Good choice. How's Light Blue as a color?
The above post may be subject to editing. A lot of editing.

Very pretty saber!

I also am curious about light blue. What color would you compare it to from the movies? If I had to guess, I'd say TPM Obi-Wan, or perhaps ESB Luke during the Bespin battle.

It's really a pretty color. As for how comparable it is to movie colors, I'd say its pretty close to the cyany color of Luke ANH saber. Though, I haven't seen it at full charge. Either way, it feels unique! Can't wait till tonight when it will really shine.

I have a couple of questions: When did you order your lightsaber, and when did it go into the Build Queue? Awesome Gladius. I love it, and and looking at buying one for my own.

Well I ordered on Jan 4th and my status switched to shipped on Mar 22 if that helps you. It was during the SW craze so many other people ordered during that time. It was long but totally worth it B)

Diezel23, Congratulations with successful delivery of your Saber and Thank You for sharing a few words and beautiful pictures. I wouldn't had guessed that Blue was Light Blue. The colour and illumination is quite rich and generous. Recent murmurs suggest that Medium Blue is the goto choice however this Light Blue of yours definitely doesn't warrant shying away from. Aesthetically, the Dual Toning of the Hilt is effective with the Brown Wrap. Very Nice.

It's definitely great to look at, and as for the blue, its certainly lighter in person but still looks very nice. I will try to post a video later!
