Ok so originally I had ordered an Exile way back in October but in December it was..."misplaced" during the USPS fiasco, so I lost it. To compensate for my loss :( I was offered by CSR Joshua several alternative options to make up for it, this includes rushed order and expitted shipping (that's all I'm going to say about that cuz I don't want newcomers to think that this is an open deal for everyone and misquote me), it was a one time deal. I thought "hmm, well I did want a Silver Knight" so I did and got myself a SK!

I ordered it on a Monday and I got it on a Thursday of the same week, lucky me! B) This is my second saber of my ever growing collection. I ordered it in 12w+ Frost White but I'm sure it came in a regular white LED. It's no biggie, I love it and I went through too much to have to return it for an LED change. It's still hella bright! I think the 12+ white or Frost white is by far one of the brightest LEDs out there. The saber is beautiful, simple, elegant, and super comfortable. It comes with a covertech knob AND a d-ring just in case you can't make up your mind. But I wanted to keep its tubular form and removed the knob, which can be done very easily. It's an excellent dueler and it's actually a BIT longer than most of the SF sabers. I've already put it through some paces and it's awesome. Thank you Joshua for your help, I'll def be ordering another saber in the future. So enough of that here are some pics: (because the pictures are large for the camera-to-PC I'm forced to upload pictures one by one, sorry)

I love the look of the SK, how does it feel in your hand? Is it too heavy? Considering buying this one in the future, its why I asked. Awesome purchase from the looks of it.

I noticed that there is some very VERY subtle weathering done to the emitter and it is so nice to look at because it gives it some personality. BTW kudos to whoever smithed this saber because I didn't ask for it but SF delivers 110%! They go the extra mile to please you.

That is a truly beautiful saber. I honestly love everything about the Silver knight, and if I ever get money to buy a second one for myself it will be very hard to resist following your lead. Congratulations.

It seems insane that that's a darkened room, but I have no reason to doubt you. That is an amazing saber and amazingly bright!

The Silver Knight is just such a fantastic design, it has long been on my top 5 list. As for the Frost White LED, I think it goes so well with the SK it is hard to imagine it any other way in my minds eye. WHEN I finally get the SK, it will be in Frost White, so I applaud your choice. If memory serves, the Frost White took the place of the regular white LED a few months back, so that might have been the only way to go if you wanted white. I could be mistaken, but that was my recollection.

Anyway, congrats on the saber! You have my respect for your choice, and my envy for ownership of such a fine weapon. B)
Imagine what you will know tomorrow....

Thanks Brax. That's the interesting thing though, I ordered the saber in a Frost white after it had already replaced the regualr one and well...something mighta happened, I dunno. I would've loved to see the frost white but guess in the future I suppose.

Nice Saber Dude and congrats on the 2nd addition to your collection. (saddened to hear about the AWOL problem you had) The white is an obvious choice and it looks great too. Always had an apprehension that it looked too much like a fluorescent tube but from your pics, definitely not the case.
Am having a love/hate with the SK vs the Archon, my problem.

How long is the SK hilt, from top of emitter peak to pommel?
Apart from the pommel, is the hilt one piece i.e. does the emitter shroud and grip shroud separate where the inlaid grip is (like I imagine the Guardian does)?

Its about 13inches long, it is a bit longer than most of the sabers on saberforge. It's in the same ballpark as the archon, bane, and venomous fury in terms of length. The S-shroud is a single piece but it is VERY secure to the emitter, then the body is comprised of two pieces and then the pommel. Very simple build but somehow I think it can easily be customed with some extra flare!

I have seen Indigo in 12w form, and it is beautiful. In 12w+, it will be out of this world in brightness and color. It will be a good match for an Archon.

Very, very nice. You wouldn't know that room is dark to look at it- though I think that's because you have it in white. But very nice choice, and other people being happy makes me happy! Most of the time. Gratz.
The above post may be subject to editing. A lot of editing.

Decline if unreasonable, do you have a pic of the seldom shown side i.e. 180 degrees from black inlay, where the kill-key & activation switch is?

The silver body looks polished too rather the anodised frosted appearance on Etsy. Is this a standard finish and at about 13 inches long is balance best achieved with a 26 or a 32?

Congrats on your 2nd saber dude! The Silver Knight looks fantastic! I was never really sure about the white/frost color but with that saber it really looks beautiful! Good Job!

The saber is polished without a doubt, and that is standard, they replaced the anodized silver with the polished silver. Very shiny, and I went with a 32in blade, since the hilt is long 32in is my goto.

Congtraz! Glad to see you have a saber to be pleased about. :)

What makes you think it is the regular white (i.e. not Frost White)? FW has a very subtle hint of blue after you stare at it for several seconds. Super bright as you said.

Trust me I checked, there is no blue in this bad boy. I stared down at the actual LED and nothing. At least it's 12w+, I've how the FW looks on camera and the one I got contrasts from it.
