Based on a Saberforge Katana;

I name thee "Yamato - Shattered Oni"



Specs;
12.5" Katana Hilt
Hero Tier - RGBA / Spark Colour 2
Shattered Weathering
Black Leather Tsuka-Ito Wrap
Crystal Reveal
Micro Tactile Switches
Bass Speaker

I've always loved the Katana Sword. When I saw the legacy example on the ASP Kickstarter page, I knew that I have to own that hilt. Not the same, but similar. It became one of my 'unicorns'..

It is inspired by my favorite video game character, Virgil from Devil May Cry..



A sort of Sith/Demon Hybrid.. :evil:

Tom @ Customs done a superb job. The hilt is exquisite. Exactly how I imagined it to be. Pictures do not do it justice, nor does my camera. :cheer: I really cant stress how good the shattered weathering is on this hilt. Everything is on point. The Tsuka-Ito wrap is also very well done. Nothing loose.

Sound is nice and crisp and quite loud. Need to play around with the colour settings and add some soundfonts.. LED is also very bright.

Has a bit of heft to it, but that's fine. This is not meant for dueling.

The tactile switches are quite responsive and easy to use, but a wee bit sharp. Need to do something about those.







Just need a decent stand to do it justice now.. ;)

Smooth, but good to grip..

Thanks bud.. It was a very happy new year. Picking up two quality sabers made my 2016.

I can see why you like sabers with crystal chambers. Does add an extra dimension to the hilt.

Wow, awesome build! Love how it really feels like a katana from a real samurai, that weathered look really gives it authenticity :woohoo:
For my ally is the Force - and a powerful ally it is!
