So this is gonna be my first custom saber and I want it to be a good one. I started out with this ASP build



However, I decided it wasn't QUITE perfect, and so messed around with it in photoshop and decided that I would ask for something similar, but not quite the same, and definitely with a crystal reveal. (This was around 2am in the morning, mind you.) At first I thought that I would have a reveal in the middle of the saber that could pull out, like the CR exalted, which (with my poor photoshop skills) might look something like this:



But I now think that this looks quite ugly.
So I have come to you guys for help. Any advice or ideas? I like the look of the pull-out and reveal, and also heavy shattered weathering with reveal, but not sure how to implement them on this saber...

12W Green w/ Viridium sound font hopefully.

I think it'd work well right below the switch, above where the wrapping starts.

That's what i was thinking, but I dont know if it would work in a two-handed grip that way :unsure:

Ben Sharp17 Have you checked out the Gladiator? Its a Crystal reveal saber very similar to your design.

I looked at it and was very close to buying it, but I didn't like the reveal chamber (I like being able to have it reveal or not depending on how I feel), and I wanted the whole grip to be leather.

Well the two handed grip will just depend on the length of the hilt, not so much the position of the chamber.

Hey Ben, Are you planning on using this for heavy to moderate dueling? The reason I ask, when you talk to Justin ask if there's a way to fit the reveal chamber mechanism from one of the Redeemer/PS/Exhalted hilts
If you're considering for cosplay or moderate dueling, it may be a viable option. Justin's a pretty clever guy, might be worth asking him if it's practical.
