Finally got my birthday present :) About 3 weeks late, but oh well lol.

Here are the shots of the saber.




Overall, everything looks good I would give this one an A, but QA missed two rather easy to notice issues for which it gets a D ;)

First, there is are two spots on the pommel that were not anodized or painted (whichever is done here) correctly, shown in picture below. Second, the side blades are about 1/4 inch different in length, not sure what that is about, but seems like another review mentioned that as well. No idea how either of these fairly obvious issues can make it past a QA step, I've noticed both within first minute of unpacking.


I will be doing some weathering of my own in next few days just like I did on my other saber, except for maybe no copper sulfate bath, as it wouldn't do much on anodized surface. Pictures of the results are to follow.

Wow, this thing is a beauty! Much impress.

I am personally more a fan of the V1 with blue blades, but that comes from a light side perspective. This saber is incredible. Congrats on your purchase!

This exactly the saber I want so I am super jealous.

I'm going to have to wait until it's put up on the main site permanently which hopefully will be soon.

From extensive research online I think it will be very easy to shave down the longer blade to match them up.

Can I ask does it have sound and pulse or is it a basic model?

Yes, it does have sound. Sabercore crimson.


Sanded the edges a bit, gave it a quick acid wash, and then polished it on a wheel. Not as big of difference as was on my exalted, but it does look more used and abused now :)

He would NEED to be able to tap the Darkside just to wield something like that for more than 30 seconds! Those are pretty heavy individually!
Imagine what you will know tomorrow....

It's actually feels lighter than the Exalted I have, so that shouldn't be a problem :)

Also if anyone is wondering RGBY colors from Hero version are much fainter than the single color LED array in this, as expected of course. Would have to mix at least 3 of the 4 LEDs in RGBY to get similar brightness, but that ends up being kind of pinkish white at that point lol.

Is the red pretty bright? I'm looking at getting a blood orange but keep looking at the red too.

Simply one bad ass saber. Completely menacing and intimidating. The weathering done on this hilt really makes it stand out. That is one hell of a saber. Congrats! ;)
