K3GR1 Shining Knight CF 4.1
« on: December 08, 2010, 10:11:18 PM »
The idea behind this build is an Officer of the Imperial Knights' weapon.
My idea was it should be built by the men in the officers command as a gift.
Highly polished for Dress or as a serious weapon

The Crystal Cave chamber was inspired by the Giant Crystal Caves.
http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2007/04/photogalleries/giant-crystals-cave/
The leds in the chamber a a combination of HB, off white and blue white.
Also a 10w White should have a serious crystal chamber. 8)

The grip and emitter were knurled as a favor for me by Acerocket. He also did the cutouts in the body for the crystal cave chamber.
Thank you, again.

The blade is made in Erv's style with a wrap of corbin film on the outside and 4-5 ft. of film on the inside.
The tip lights up, by using 2 sheets of mylar

Specs
CF 4.1
10w White 2 dies in series off the main pads and 2 dies in series for the CoF
4 White accent Leds ~ 3 in Crystal Cave Chamber, 1 in pommel
In-hilt recharge with 2xAW 18650 Li-ion 2400 mah (wrapped in a decorative Nickel finish tape)
Custom killkey

Wow, jango. That's quite a nice K3gr1 you made there. The crystal cave is amazingly beautiful and the rough interior the cave gives is a perfect complement to the perfected exterior! Very nice!

@menthos, jango said in the video it is a personal saber, not for sale (I was a little bummed put too) ;D
Haha.

I like it, Jango. How does the 10W white compare to a P4, can I ask?

Beautiful hilt Jango...

The crystals inside remind me of Superman's Fortress of Solitude :)

Amazingly done...and VERY cool to look at... an oooooh and aaaah moment when one draws closer to the chamber window.

Love the knurled job by Ace on the pommel and emitter too... I'm sure that it is fun to grip.

And Ace... of course the hilt itself is spectacular...

I like how you OWNED this, Jango... great job... enjoyed the video and the photos of this.... :)

Amazing, esp the crystal cave chamber, and the knurling ROCKS...that is my favourite Kegger yet...BRAVO!
To DREAM the IMPOSSIBLE DREAM. To FIGHT the unbeatable foe. To BEAR with unbearable sorrow. To RUN where the brave dare not go. To RIGHT the unrightable wrong. To LOVE, PURE AND CHASTE, FROM AFAR [-sigh-]. To TRY, when your arms are too weary; to REACH the unreachable Star!... This is my Quest; To follow that Star, no matter how hopeless, no matter how far...

gorgeous ! absolutely stunning. I am a huge fan of the K3GR1 series, this one is top 2 for me! I've never liked the knurled grips or that look on a saber in general, but it is so aesthetically pleasing the way you pulled it off.

Sorry, No.
I like it, Jango. How does the 10W white compare to a P4, can I ask?
overdriving the P4 @ 1200 puts it on par with the 10W on 2 dies(regular operation) There is a noticeable difference when the CoF is activated and the 10 is much brighter. I tried to show it in the video

Amazing, esp the crystal cave chamber, and the knurling ROCKS...that is my favourite Kegger yet...BRAVO!

The knurling is great and reminds me of chain mail. I have one more knurled grip for another k3gr1, and want to anodize it in black.


Thanks for all the compliments. This is one of my favorite builds and I learned a lot while building it.
IMHO, the blade is the best I've ever made, but no shots do it justice. It's something you have to see in person.
