Soooo yea this beauty came in yesterday.





This is my first Saber so i got nothing to compare to, BUT that doesnt even matter since this is just perfect. Color is heck alot more than i expected to be it amazing, it my stone color Birthday so yea that a plus.



The Weathering is so freaking EPIC the hilt has that nice gradients from dark grays to metal silver but then you have the claws...so epic there weather doesnt have that gradient it goes from silver to pure black as if it been in so many battles that the sparks of those fight "burned" (think that the correct term) the claws but since the claws are intact it show that the wielder is a master of the blade since there no physical damage, so he won or had stalemate Vs everyone he fought.



Oh and OMG how it FEELS, when we create the actual lightsaber we wil be Unstoppable since we practice with this replica so much. Am confident to say this IS how a real ligthsaber hilt wil feel, even tho it my first i know.

The one thing that i a bit worried is how the blade fit and the blade plug. They fit tight, i mean TIGHT. I had to used a spoon to get the blade plug out because it wouldnt slide out even tho i took out the retention screw.it got a few scratches but a figure it will get them anyway. Maybe it just that the claws are too tight and there giving the blade pretty much 3x security of not flying off the hilt.

All in all this beauty it just a 15/10 it just what i wanted and more. TOTALLY worth the wait order 12/29 - delivered 3/18

That saber looks awesome. Nice choice for your first purchase. I ordered a weathered Venomous Fury in amber in December. After seeing your pictures it can't wait to get mine. Enjoy

Hi TheAMJ7,

Congrats, that's one well turned out Saber! When I first joined this forum I thought Sabers were just sleek, shiny tubes, but I have come to love the weathered, worn, clawed Sabers. And I love this particular Saber. The weathering and Amber just scream ancient and historic!

I hope it serves you long and well!

For Tyeth

Congrats on your new saber! Hope you get to enjoy it this weekend! The Yellow/Amber color is starting to rub off on me. Might need to get a new LED with QC in the future. Good pics and review.

TheAMJ7, such a sinister looking instrument for combat. Congratulations with a successful delivery of your Saber and equally so such a successful complimenting Amber Blade. There was speculation that the newer versions of Viper featured the tapered emitter holder extension similar to Venom, however this is not the case. An aggressive addition to your possibly soon to be growing collection. Thank you for sharing your prize.

Congrats AMJ7! That weathered Viper is a beast. Looks menacing as hell! And the amber blade works well with it.
MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU
