It has taken years to build the perfect saber just for me. Hundreds of drafts and versions of the same thing over and over. From doable to not so doable. But now I have perfected it completely. So here it is
This is my render(s) of my dream Sith saber. It is without a name for now, but eventually it will come to me. Once I am able to afford the build, I plan to seek out the best smith for the job here in this forum
VERY cool design, I like the clean & elegant lines very much! Interestingly, the only part I don't really like is the claw. Have you considered a tad more flat claw profile (angle off the hilt body not that big)? And I'd probably run the claw ridge Dooku-esque through the entire hilt (from emitter to the pommel).
Not that I'm telling you what to do with the design, I like it very much already!

Thanks for all the compliments. Yes I've seen that render on FX. I did put Dooku influence into the saber, but didn't intend on the Zallow. Happy accident i suppose. This saber originally had a curved pommel, but i was told it wasnt very doable within a reasonable price. But i am happy with it now and intend on having it made as soon as i have the funds to support the project.
jaltrooper: Hey guys! Dumb question...but are there any t-shirts available, or any other swag I can buy to support the Page?

ARKM: We have challenge coins. Contact Luke Skywalker if you want one.

Luke Skywalker: We never did any swag. There's never enough interest to even break even. My sponsor coin run was a huge success and helped us pay the bills well into 2018 and even gave us the money to fund a couple of one time costs we incurred this year.

Luke Skywalker: As for shirts. I really need to get one for me as well. I've been wanting one with our new logo since we changed over. My desire has always been that this is a site for the members. I consider you all my friends and have no desire to make a profit from

ARKM: Luke Skywalker, hit me up if you want the image I used for the front of my shirt.

Luke Skywalker: Site. I never intend to charge selling fees. The coin drive was a much better way to go imho. As for our logo, name and copywriter and TM's go. I have no issue with anyone wanting to use them. I ask two things. Please let me know prior. If it's crude

Luke Skywalker: and vulgar and casts us in a bad light I simply won't approve it. The other thing I think would be nice is that if our name is used on things like t-shirts that you do make a small donation to help support the site.

Luke Skywalker: My recommendation, and the place I will definitely go when I want to have a shirt done is TRA member defcon. Al's work is outstanding. Al is the Solo's Hold of saber bags and other fabric items. I've had him make me a couple of shirts and several

Luke Skywalker: saber bags. His merchandise is perfection.

Luke Skywalker: I think I'm down to about 8 coins.

Luke Skywalker: ARKM what image did you use? Was it the one with SVD's glowing eyes? I'm really curious to see how our logo looks on a shirt. Defcon would certainly need to use the flattened simpler version. For a detailed logo I think you'd need it silk screened.
