In collaboration with Mynock's Den, we present the Acolyte, based on the saber of the Sith Acolyte character from the Star Wars The Old Republic trailers released by Blur Studios in 2011. Taras from Mynock's Den released an absolutely stunning armor set based on the Sith Acolyte character and lamented the lack of accurate, quality saber replicas to go with it. We agreed and decided to fill that gap. We began the arduous task of toiling over screen grabs and concept art, scaling it out and engineering what we believe is the most accurate rendition of that saber to date. All the subtle details from the on screen saber are captured here in a slim, comfortable, two handed hilt in our affordable Combat Class line. We. Have. Returned!

I heard Vader's Vault was the best. This saber lives up to that expectation. I think my clip was defective. Other than that everything was better than expected and I was able to fix it on my own!

I had very high hopes for the Acolyte and I can tell you, I most certainly was NOT disappointed. The weathering gives this thing a lot of character, I absolutely love it to pieces already and I've only had it for about an hour. My housemates are very jealous.
It did take quite a while between ordering it and receiving it, however considering the new boom in demand for custom sabers stemming from the new movies and games being released, as well as the fact that it is so well made, I frankly have no problem with the wait what so ever.
This was my first custom hilt and I'm so very glad I took the time to research and eventually choose VV to order from. I am one happy nerd right now.

Vader's Vault Acolyte is a true work of art. The design and detail are stunning. I ordered red suncrusher, orange light for the activation switch, and medium weathering except for shroud which is heavy weathering. The extra weathering on the shroud came out fantastic - the dark areas make it stand out, the nick at the top is a cool detail, and nice darkening around the switch. I've seen a lot cool takes on the VV Acolyte, but honestly it needs nothing but some weathering to be perfect. This is how this saber was meant to be - a metallic relic, worn silver look without wraps, without colors. It's a beautiful piece of science fiction and far and away my favorite pick from VV. The new Acolyte font is INSANE awesomeness. I ordered mine on March 20 and it shipped Nov 4, nearly 33 week wait, and every day was worth it. Note - the blade plug will need to be 1.25" - I ordered a 1.5" from DSE and am having it adjusted down.

I received my Acolyte last week. The wait was long, but that all went away when the package arrived... This is an amazing saber. Very industrial looking.. especially with the heavy weathering. The hilt is very detailed and looks like a real lightsaber. The red sun crusher is very bright. The crystal shard that comes standard in all of VV combat class sabers stands heads and shoulders above other sound boards with similar features and capabilities. I know from first hand experience. Trust me, they may seem comparable on paper, but these puppies rock. The clash and lock up effects are very organic (and very customizable), the motion sensitivity is also very realistic and natural compared to other high end sabers that I own from different manufacturers. If you are on the fence because of the long wait, don't worry, it will be worth it.

This is an unbelievable saber. Beautiful creation and I dare say it is the exact saber you see in the SWTOR trailer. They took their time at VV to master the look and they more then nailed it. Go Sun crusher if you want the brightest and best LED out there! This is my 2nd Acolyte and I have a third on the way :)

The pictures do not do justice to the excellent craftsmanship of this hilt. The finish is great, handles like a dream, is loud. I simply could not ask better for the price.

This is a work of art, I'm totally in love with this hilt. I was when I ordered and since I could feel it and grab it I can't say enough times how amazing this is. The feeling in your hands, the perfect finish, the weathering, the sound, I was expecting a lot of it and it's even more!!
This was a purchase after lot of research as it is my first hilt, and all I can say is the acolyte is beyond greatness! Perfect choice!

these hilts are truly awesome, thin and manageable with a length that works great for 2 hands, and i prefer that the activation switch is more toward the emitter instead of half way down the hilt.

It's a gorgeous hilt with superior craftsmanship!!
The weathering stun me for the first and go well with SWTOR sound font.
Even the long time of wait, I have to say it's worth.
Listen to the force, and you will have no regret.

After a long wait I can really say it is a piece of art. Very bright and loud, customer service is superb and very kind.
I got the RGB as well and see now that was the best option for me.
I really recommend Vaders Vault for all saber enthusiasts
