It's a nice saber, Kyle. Good job on the weathering. Great job on the pommel. Excellent install job (as usual)
On the constructive feedback side, I would have preferred to see a functioning control box (i.e. buttons hidden under the control card) and perhaps move the control box back a half inch (although I know you were trying to replicate the JSK - Jaina Solo Kotobukiya sculpture - as close as possible). It's just that that style of control box has sharp edges and can be murder on your leading hand in my experience.

Actually I wasn't trying to replicate the JSK at all. I was replicating the Kotobukiya statue design. The JSK is bombarta's saber. As for the box, the switches were put in it in that fashion to make install simpler and much more cost effective.
The box on this one actually isn't sharp in the slightest bit and there is room above it for gripping quite nicely. But the objective of this saber was to meet the original request of the customer.

ZahcStarKiller: Yeah I have to agree. I just happened to stumble across spot #1 on the orbital machining Obi TPM run and had the opportunity to purchase it. That is pretty darn close to happiness.
