I really love the way it looks.  I'm not used to seeing a clamp at the bottom and I like it!

This looks like it'll work very well for reverse grip.

I just picked this one up from Jasten, and I sure am glad you keep all of these videos and such around.  I know your work and when it was still there a couple of hours later....I caved.  :D

It is Jasten's design, but I had to make a few small adjustments so that the Cram-fu could engage it's fullest plethora of positivity...wait, what was I saying...I need a vacation. :D

Yea, I can see the cram-fu in full force.  I love how you have the pics of everything though and all the connections/wires heat shrinked and such.  Looks I a VERY solid build.

To the best of my knowlege this is a one of a kind piece and there isn't any run of any kind.  Jasten can correct me if I'm wrong but he designed and built the hilt himself as a unique piece and LDM handled all of the electronics install (which was extensive) in a compact hilt.

This really is a spectacular hilt. And I have no idea how LDM managed to get all of the electronics in there. It some point you go beyond Cram-fu and into TARDIS technology. Great work!

Any chance of a future run?

I wouldn't get my hopes up.  Runs are typically canon sabers of some form.  Either from the movies themselves, books or other venue's such as The Clone Wars TV series.  I could be mistaken but I don't recall ever hearing about a run of a totally non canon custom saber.

Thanks. Any advice on how to get one?

As with anything,  you could possibly commission a smith to build one similar to it.  From what had to be done to make this one, I wouldn't expect it to be cheap either.  I would imagine with all of the shroud work, cram fu and a CF with a bunch of features a saber custom built like that one would run you $1,500 and up.  This has been my expierience.

Also, just putting this out there publically.  I already promised Jasten that IF I ever wanted to sell it, I would offer it back to him first for the same price he sold it to me.  It is his baby after all.  :D

I'd paypal LDM right now for one with a CF5. I hope he's listening. I'm on saber withdrawal. My entire Yoda collection was stolen a few weeks back. It's hurts more since these sabers are so hard to come by. It really bites....
