My custom Sentinel is the third saber in my collection and it did not disappoint. First of all, the staff at SaberForge were great, promptly replying to my customization questions with concise and clear answers. And though the lead time was long (though no longer than any other place I've bought from), my saber actually arrived about a week sooner than expected, which was awesome, so a big thank you to the SaberForge team for getting it to me as expeditiously as possible.
As for the saber itself, it is a beautiful piece. I love the finish. The genuine leather grip, which is tight and perfectly wrapped, really helps sell the antiquity of the weathering. The hilt is surprisingly light, but feels very sturdy. It was much slimmer than I was expecting too. I'm used to sabers being a little much to hold on to, but this one fits my hand perfectly. All of the detail parts and internal components are firmly attached and there isn't a loose screw or rivet to be found. The blade plug and kill switch are awesome cosmetic details that add a lot to the display and costume options for the saber too. And even though I haven't yet tested it in a full contact dueling situation, I'm confident it will hold up just fine.
This is my first custom saber with sound and the electronics continue to surprise me. I knew when I picked the 'Veteran RGB' that it would have the option to change colors and swap sound profiles, but what I didn't know is that each sound font could be paired to its own color AND blade effect. I spent the entire first day I had it, literally like 4 straight hours, setting up each sound font with their own characteristics, so I basically have ten lightsabers in one! Discovering that each sound profile had a unique 'Force Push' was also a ton of fun. The effect for 'Dark Side Relic' in particular was a real surprise! The smooth swing is incredibly responsive and the adjustable volume can go from almost whisper quiet to VERY loud. The lights are very strong and the clash and blaster effects are great as well.
If I had to find something to complain about it would probably be that the machining was almost TOO precise. The parts are so exact that their edges can actually be a little on the sharp side. The cut-out around the power switch in particular can really tear up your fingers if you let it. Given that pressing or holding the power switch is so important to so many of the electronics features (blaster deflect, blade clash/lock, force power etc.) it seems like it might be good to go over the various edges and round them over a bit to smooth them out. I ended up using my hand Dremel to gently sand the offending edges down a bit and now it's perfect, so no harm, no foul.
As I said this is the third saber in my collection and it is by far the best. I wasn't looking for another "entry level" model either. I wanted sound, lights, and durability to duel. And my Sentinel has all three. It was not exactly what I would call "cheap" per se, but it has been my experience that when buying a lightsaber you absolutely get what you pay for. And having shopped around the various custom saber sites for a few years now, I will say that the price here at SaberForge is incredibly reasonable considering all of the stuff the saber can do, and I would totally recommend them to anyone looking to start or upgrade their collection.
Haven't decided what hilt I want to go for next, but I am definitely thinking I'll be coming back to SaberForge the next time I want a new weapon from a galaxy far, far away.
5/5 stars, 10/10 for customer service.
My first saber from SaberForge, and it did not disappoint. The staff were great. In addition to being helpful with my questions, my shipment arrived a bit earlier than anticipated.
The saber itself is wonderful, it's a sizeable piece of well cut metal and it feels very solid. The leather grip really sells the antiquity of the weathered finish.
The electronics keep surprising me, both with its features and its response. The force push is amazing, and figuring out that I could pair a different color AND effect to each of the sound profiles was a lot of fun. The kill switch decoration and blade plug were icing on top.
If I have one complaint about my saber it's that the machining is almost too precise. Especially in the cut outs around the power switch and charging port. The edges are a tad sharp and could have used a little rounding. Considering how much the power switch is used for various things, it can kind of mess up your fingers.
In the end I took a Dremel and gently filed it down a bit. So no big deal.
On the whole this was a highly satisfying purchase. It was not exactly cheap per se, but given the market for a saber this good the price was excellent. Ultimately in my experience buying sabers, you get what you pay for, and my custom Sentinel was worth it.
I haven't stopped fiddling with it since it arrived. Happy birthday to me.
I bought this saber a little while ago and it took about 4 months to get to me but it was worth the wait, it has many impressive features and the hilt is beautiful made perfectly, I was like a little kid when it came I happened to be outside when the fedex guy pulled up and I went straight inside to open it up, it kinda scared me at first cuz the box felt really light but when I opened it, I was very impressed, on the website if u go to ur saber it shows u exactly how to operate it which is very convenient. I made an order change by emailing Saberforge and they were very helpful, overall it was a great purchase and I would definitely recommend it
When I got the saber my inner voice was squealing like a little girl who got a puppy on Christmas! Putting aside the emotionalism I am truly amazed at how "elegant" it is. I keep cycling through the sound/lighting fonts because its so hard to choose just one. I am an original fan (saw SW 3 times in 1977) and feel like I have a next generation saber! it looks just like I imagined it would and I'm thrilled! Now my son wants one of his own!
