Hi.

I bought an Heretic lightsaber in november and i have chosen the "weathered" finish.
But, i don't know what is it looks like... no photographs in the SaberForge's shop, just two skin : "standard" and "black" i think.

If someone can share me a photograph of the Heretic "weathered" fisnish...
Same thing for the "dark brown leather" in another lightsaber.

Attachments : standard and black finishes or other ???

Correct me if I am wrong but isn't the lower picture actually weathered? If you look at other black parts (for example in the ASP section of the store) you'll see that black is actually black, with actually no silver visible.

The lower one is indeed, the weathered finish.
Imagine what you will know tomorrow....

The lower pic is the weathered one. They anodize it black and sand off some of the black to simulate weathering. If you want to see more pics, check out the Heretic review section of the forum.

I believe the first pic is with the "dark brown" leather. It definitely looks darker than the ones I've gotten with the old regular "brown".

I received my black Reliant with brown leather in November. Since it's the big brother of the Heretic, I'll try and post a photo tomorrow to show how dark the brown is.

Pretty much, yes.
The leather will be smooth though, not rough like that, I think that's stingray or reptile leather.

What green effect do you mean?

That's bronze stingray with weathered finish and the green shimmer is a failure of the photographer with artificial lighting.

Yours will have the brown leatherfrom your first pic with the hilt finish from your second pic.

I will get mine in standard with bronze stingray, since I haven't seen many creatures with smooth leather hides in Star Wars.

Here's my Reliant in black with dark brown leather. It really is dark brown.





A side note:
The black finish on an Elite saber is different than the black finish on ASP parts. ASP parts are glossy while premade Elite hilts have a flat black finish. This is what I was told by SF after receiving my order. I wish I would have known that going in because I can't change the pommel out because of the difference in the finish.

Also, the lower part of your lightsaber is in plastic ?
And now, all of the SF lightsabers are with 12W LED?

So I love that leather, definitely get it on my own hilt. Shame about the Black finish though. I hope it looks better in person because unfortunately in the pictures it looks like it's just been sprayed by a dark grey primer :S

Don't worry, it's black. It's just flat black. To the naked eye, the black is truer. It doesn't appear grey at all. You can use the control box as a reference point to the gloss/flat. It's a good, consistent color from top to bottom, it just doesn't match the ASP finish. I'll take another pic with some ASP parts on it (coupler and pommel)so you can see the difference. The light source is daylight LED bulbs overhead.

Mmh.. either, your cam really sucks, or this is grey..
The ASP part looks like black, but the hilt is clearly somewhere around 50-60% Grey.

Cell phone camera set to auto. No corrections. I'll try and get a natural daylight photo this weekend depending on the weather. Or I'll try a wider shot. If you have any black parts already, you'll notice the true color is deeper and richer than my photos. Even the ASP parts look a little washed out compared to reality.
