Nice Saber, Eastern! Love the Phoenix Font....the Phoenix cry sounds like the eagle screeching when Altair does a "Leap of Faith" in Assassin's Creed....maybe it's just my imagination  :-\

Thanks all! 

The switches are pretty much out of the way of both hands (for double grip)... and even one-handed, they're totally out of the way.

I'm going to have to do something to it... the plain aluminium look is boring as heck...

The best thing about the MHS.  For a small price you can easily change the look of your saber if your tired of the old look.

BTW It looks great.  I still favor the one at the top of the page though.  Nicer pommel IMO.  But they both look great.  And with a CF, can't beat it.  ;D

Thanks, Luke!

I agree (mostly).  A flared/flanged emitter and thick pommel make for nice "book-ends", but on this one, the smoothness seemed to talk to me a little more.  It's shorter and less bulky, which adds to the grace and aesthetic of have the flowing lines - that pommel looked too angular to fit 100%... maybe I'll come up with a smooth version of that pommel ;)

That is a very good point about having the pommel in line with the rest of the hilt.  I am sure in person it would stand out a lot more.
