During the last summer, I bought my youngest brother a Guardian! Nothing to do with Qui-Gon... He just really liked the hilt, so I bought him one! I'm the one who received it, and I've had the chance to manipulate it for two weeks, so I can give you a descent review!

This hilt is awesome! Simple, yet awesome! It truly respects the details of the original ''Guardian''! It's a masterpiece!

Pros:
- The hilt is light, yet solid and resistant, except for the silver guard that goes over the hilt.
- The handle is amazing! It offers a good hold on the hilt for those who wield it, using one or two hands!
- The form of the hilt makes it perfect for dual wielding and to use for a staff!

Cons:
- The silver guard, added over the hilt, is too thin (In my opinion)! I was afraid of what would happen if a direct hit was given on it! I was right! My brother told me two days ago that while dueling, my other brother had hit the hilt twice! The said silver cover is now deeply bumped at different places! Sad!

There's not much to say on this hilt actually! It is straight, yet beautiful and ergonomic! Perfect for dueling, cosplaying and displaying! On a scale of 1 to 10, this hilt gets a 9/10! Why 9? Because of the week silver cover! Make it a little bit more solid, and you can be sure to get a 10/10 from me!

Like always, PICTURES!

I've always loved the guardian. If I were to get it it would be green by Amber is a very fitting color as well.

Yeah green would be awesome! It would look more like ''The real thing''! My brother always loved ''non-conventionnal'' colors, If I can call them like this! He's more a gray-jedi than a jedi/a sith!

He now use two sabers (Dual-Wielding), this saber and one of my Epochs he turned purple haha! I'm gonna try to get pictures of that Epoch so I can do a quick review of the purple!

Any chance you could have a quick look and tell us the length of it? Nobody has commented on the 'Length of SF hilts' Topic for it yet.
I'm designing a stand for mine and wouldn't mind having an idea of it's size before it comes because I'm very impatient haha
I'm getting a green one, but I'm very torn between staying original green or going Lime Green, since the lime looks awesome !

Guardian is really a masterpiece. But you should be careful about the shroud. Certainly not for duelling.

I don't agree! It is the perfect saber for dueling, with its straight and long handle and the good grip it offers! Just take the shroud off when it comes to heavy dueling! It's not hard to do!

Exactly! Just take off the covertech knob and slide it off!
