All three curved / bent sabers together! Hope this is entertaining, of use if you are deciding which one is for you. Thanks for watching!

Thanks for the comparison; quite surprised that the Count wasn't the heaviest (and that the Bane was the lightest, the Vanquish seems sort of refined and elegant that it should be that instead).
Gorgeous sabers all three - love the elevator music in the background; like you're some sort of shopping channel for Sith Lords, advertising these beautiful sabers to kill younglings with :lol:

Thanks for the comparison vid, man. You do great videos. :)

Curved hilts aren't necessarily my thing, but SaberForge does make some excellent looking ones. The Bane MKII is still my favorite, but they're all impressive looking. The Count is so shiny. It was interesting that The Count isn't the heaviest. Maybe the Vanquish has thicker metal. It's also the longest, though, so maybe that makes a difference. As for volume, that pommel on The Count probably makes a nice resonance chamber, making the saber nice and loud. Also, as you said, it may be the new board as well. The Bane has lots of vents, creating a nice sound effect, but the Vanquish has much smaller vents. Depending on how the pommel is constructed internally, that could be your difference between that and the Bane.

Anyway, awesome sabers, awesome video. :D

Very nice job, as always!

It would be interesting to see a Bane MkII with SC3 compared to the same saber with SC2, and the Count with SC3. Just to see if the spacious pommel on the Count (and the resonance chamber it creates) is the reason it was noticeably louder than the SC2 equipped Bane MkII.
Imagine what you will know tomorrow....

...lol the elevator music is "neutral" and doesn't get me into copyright issues. But if you think I should be using a different style of music please let me know.

The Count is surprisingly relatively light. When I unboxed it, I first thought it was lighter than I expected because of all the shiny metal parts made it look heavy.

Thanks man! I make videos for the fun of it plus to help viewers decide if a saber is ideal for them when they decide. :)

Haha, nah man, like said, I love how it gives this sorta macabre/morbid humour/feel to your vids; like a Sith just having fun showing off his lightsabers, whilst they are stained with the blood of Jedi :P I can just see Palpatine sitting in a retirement home, going; 'Oh that's lovely, I'll buy that for my apprentice, he'll love it!'
