I'm fairly new to the saber scene but I've looked just about everywhere from every saber manufacturer and this is by far the best looking and most detailed saber hilt I've seen! This thing is absolutely beautiful and the quality is amazing. I can't wait to get this build underway.
This is my third SaberForge saber (fourth including one I gifted to my wife). I was immediately taken by the intricate design of the Tyrant.
It looks just as beautiful in hand, although it is significantly weightier than my other sabers - it's actually uncomfortable to try to hold up in one hand for prolonged periods. The workmanship appears to be excellent, the entire saber is very solid and the metal components are beautifully crafted.
My complaint is that there really needs to be a bit more thought to the consumer experience. There's no manual included for the complex functionality of the electronics.
There's not even a link to the instruction page on the SaberForge Web site in your order e-mail - I had to look up my order to see which electronics tier I got, then Google it. That's just basic selling a product, it comes with instructions.
Similarly, it was very challenging to figure out how to remove the blade plug/blade. The included hex key fit into half a dozen screws on the body - my prior experience with SaberForge made me look for one directly above the power button, but there was none there.
It took me twenty minutes of partially disassembling the hilt to discover that one out of six identical screws was actually longer and held in the blade. If I didn't have prior SaberForge experience I can only imagine that I might have been driven to contacting customer support for this basic functionality.
There's just no excuse for not including a sheet with a picture of the saber and a little arrow pointing to which screw you loosen.
The saber itself is great, love the look of it. The only issue I ran into, I'm not sure if it is just mine or if this was a design choice, is that they only drilled and tapped one hole for blade retention. The other screws at the top of the shroud cant go through. This meant two things: 1) I had to try and remember which hole had the through hole or else the longer screw for retention wouldn't screw in, just kind of a pain. 2) You cant decide you want better retention from three screws later unless you are willing to modify the hilt yourself. To me they were already there drilling holes and should have just done all three so it would have made things easier. In my case I ended up drilling out the other two holes myself.
Great construction! Surprisingly, no sharp edges. Had to ask customer service about location of the retention screws, but they were quick to respond and very helpful.
Our saber blades (Excluding Pixel blades) are rated for full contact dueling. Capable of withstanding heavy dueling, even against kendo bokkens, and nylon hema wasters. During the machining process, some sabers may develop sharp edges. Before any contact dueling (as with any type of dueling), we recommend wearing proper safety protection for your hands, body and face. This includes but is not limited to: gloves, body armor, face masks, and helmets. Always take the proper safety measures before dueling of any kind. Saberforge is not responsible for any injuries that result from saber play, combat choreography or dueling.
