This saber was an idea that rattled around in my head for a while - I loved the idea of playing homage to the Imperial Knights by using their armor palette as the inspiration on the Silver Knight chassis, and when Justin showed off some of the first examples of Black Chrome powdercoating...well, that was basically the tipping point.

Getting a bonus at work to help fund the build didn't help either!

The specs:

12W+ Frost White LED
Sabercore Crimson soundboard
High Bass speaker
Shrouds / blade plug / kill key have all been given a black chrome powdercoat, while the internal "core" of the saber was given the deep red powdercoat seen on the Iron Phoenix.

The result? Absolutely beautiful.





It was amazing to see how well this came together. If you're considering either of these finishes for a powdercoating job, I can't recommend them enough. And interestingly, this is the "standard" powdercoat polish, plus a little finishing polish. I can't imagine what the "mirror" polish would look like - I kinda wish I'd had the money to splurge a little more that way, but at the same time, there's a nice balance here of "show quality" with the ability to be used. I'm not afraid to duel with this saber - in fact, my wife had the blade in and taking swings before I actually had a chance to handle it!



The Frost White is going to be a perfect fit for this saber, I think. This was just the basic charge it had right out of the box, and I was still impressed by the brightness and clarity. There really is a "coolness" to it that comes through when the blade is placed in it, and I think the full charge will heighten that even more.






I do have Quick Connects installed if I want to experiment - I may swap my Arctic Blue LED from my ASP saber in, for example, or possibly pick up a cyan. I also have an extra 12W+ amber LED on the way with my Reborn, and I bet that'd look pretty sweet, too.

Using a 32" blade is a good fit - I think a 37" would have been pretty good too, but in a two handed grip I felt fully in control, and there was a nice "snap" on the blade when I tested out a few strikes and cuts. I feel like this would be quite comfortable in a one handed grip, too, but my plan is to use it mostly as a two hander - that long ridged grip feels fantastic, and there's a nice natural rest for each hand.

(Oh, and did I mention that speaker is LOUD? The pommel really offers fantastic resonance.)

I can't wait to get more familiar with my newest addition - but for now I'm going to give her a good charge overnight, and put her in a place of pride to be displayed for everyone to see.

That is nice looking. It's only been three weeks since I ordered my silver knight so I still have a was to wait. Glad to see others liking the model as well.

I think some of that is the low battery. I suspect the white will get stronger on a full charge to balance it out.

Congrats on an unbelievably beautiful Saber. That red powdercoat really pops and the balance between the blade colour and rhe red and silver is perfect.

Again I hope you enjoy it for a long time to come, thanks for sharing

Thanks all! And, yeah, I gave my postman a workout this last couple of weeks!

I have two more hilts on order, and I think that's it for a little while - but you never know... :)

Still, I'm extremely pleased right now and can't quite believe how great this saber came out!

The hilt looks absolutely beautiful. The red paired contrasted by the silver is a phenomenal combination. It looks gorgeous!

And that frost white though.... Damn that faint hint of blue in that white looks amazing. It looks so nice, I would kill you for it. :lol:

Frost White 12W+ (a.k.a. White) is beautiful. I have it on my Epoch. That very subtle hint of light blue is perfect.

On another thread we were talking about themed sabers and an Iron Man saber came up as a repeated idea. And behold, there is one already.

Beautiful saber, great job!

Well, this is kind of like that - it does look a bit like the Silver Centurion - but the Iron Phoenix (also in the forum, I think?) is the real Tony Stark inspired piece of hardware. :)

Is Frost White a Saber Forge choice? If so, does it really have that slight blue glow to it? I think that would be a great choice for my version of Luke's Ep. IV saber.

Yes - Frost White is now the standard 12W+ "white" LED. It makes a very nice fit for an Ep. IV - the Arctic Blue may be a little closer, though.

Frost White was already going to be the color on my next saber. These pics pretty much cement that choice.
Imagine what you will know tomorrow....

I always thought the Silver Knight was an amazing saber, perfect for customization. I would love to see the standard black part gold/brass and the rest Black. I don't know if you guys see what I mean.
