I was hoping SaberForge was going to tackle these designs. I don't necessarily want them, but the offerings on the market are ridiculously overpriced. Not that I expect SF to give them away, but their pricing seems to be more fair.

Wonder how these are going to be designed. Maybe with a deeper blade retention to make them duel worthy? That would be awesome.

I think they are trying really hard to be as respectful/faithful to the design as possible, without giving up too much durability. The ones offered by KR sabers, while beautiful, have a very shallow blade socket. Also, the very thin profile of the hilts make electronics installs a little more difficult that your average design.

Thomas' renderings look like they have slightly increased the "thickness" of each saber, and changed the emitter to accommodate a bit of a deeper socket. As is always the case, it is a case of walking the fine line, and finding a degree of compromise that allows for ease of production, and the durability that Saber Forge strives for in their combat sabers.

I am certainly keeping my eye on these.

Oh, these are wonderful. I've been hoping for a curved shoto sized hilt option. If the off hand version comes out half as good as I expect I'll probably be placing an order for one. If I can resist getting the matched pair.

It definitely looks like the part where the LED and blade would go in has been straightened out to accommodate a deeper blade set. And, it really doesn't sacrifice much in the way of looks to achieve a bit of durability.

This!
I've seen the designs come across FB and although KR's look amazing, they indeed have a price tag that makes one go; I ain't gonna duel with that...

That and the fact that now having seen all seasons of Rebels, I've definitely fallen in love with these designs; they always looked cool, but now knowing they require a white blade and with for instance 'Fulcrum' soundfont from Shameem and you got an awesome saber! :woohoo:
For my ally is the Force - and a powerful ally it is!

But for durability and duel-ability in mind, a shallow blade socket hasn't hindered SF before since virtually all of their Thin Necks carry a socket depth of 0.75 inches and with seating a heavy grade v4 too. Slimmer profiles again something that has consistently been seen in the Apprentice line of hilts too.

I can agree with keeping an eye on these though. :lol:
Will be interesting to see what the proof of concept will demonstrate, an actual solid curve (what is suggested to be with the new ASP parts) or the clam shells halves like the Banes..
