Akaius' Lightsaber
« on: August 06, 2009, 08:33:08 PM »
Hey guys,

I had been meaning to put up some images of my recent custom saber made for me by Saberforge. The design of this saber is based off one of Saberforge's own sabers, the Epoch. However I had asked him to customize it for me to my own specifications and I have to say he did an excellent job. I love this Lightsaber!  :D  Any way here are the Glamour shots:

and for comparison here she is next to my Anakin ROTS and Anakin ROTS glove. ;)

I want to thank Saberforge for the awesome job he did on my saber and for taking the time to work with me on this. Hope you all like and as always.

I really love this saber, I've been trying to think of a custom saber that use the Luke grips but nothing I've seen has taken to my liken except for the Luke inspired version SaberForge did. I might have to have him do a saber like that for me but definitely a little modified so its not like yours.

     I really like this, Akaius!  It retains some of the design elements of the OT sabers (like the t-grips), but it's significantly more modern and streamlined like some of the EU designs.  Great job to you and SaberForge!

Thank you all.  :)  And yes the saber has sound.  ;D Maybe one day I'll upgrade it to something like an US or CF, haha yea, okay maybe that's a little out of my range but hey ya never know. Anyways I'm glad you all like, I'm very happy with it. ;)

That's a nice saber.

I would put a US 2.2 in it with a Cyan Lux V bin 1. Recharge port in pommel.

Akaius that is a great custom on an already great Epoch... Saberforge is a master saber smith... his work is stunning (one of the best).
There is no shame in not knowing; the shame lies in not finding out

Excellent design and a beautiful saber. I must say that I also like how it retains OT quality.
