Since before recorded history, weapons of war have been wrapped in leather for added grip, control, and comfort. Why should a saber not get the same treatment? Introducing our latest variant of the Combat Class Havoc: The Battle-Wrap Edition Havoc! Taking one of our very popular Havocs, we did some lathe work to remove a good amount of aluminum from the lower half of the hilt to make room for a nice, tight, spiral wrap of lambskin that goes from pommel to almost the switch, giving a large surface area of awesome leathery grip. Great for the duelist, or anyone wanting a rugged looking weapon, the Battle-Wrap Havoc is sure to become an oft picked up saber in your collection.

First the customer service:
Ordering was easy and the web interface works well, navigates logically and I didn't experience any hiccups. The fact that these are built to order and thus will take time to get built and delivered was clearly stated and an estimated delivery time was given to me.
Communication during that time period was easy and clear and even though I was told things were stacked up on their end my saber still arrived within the time frame promised. They were packaged well and were not damaged in transit.
The reveal was dramatic. All my co-workers and friends have heard about these things for months. Ohs and Ahs all around and long-simmering workplace disagreements broke out into sword play, but nobody lost a hand or turned to the dark side.
The fit and finish on this saber is top notch. It is machined to perfection. The leather wrap is sophisticated and feels good in the hand. The balance is great, no parts feel loose inside and the whole saber is surprisingly light. The light and sound are crisp and clear and the flash on clash sounds great and looks stunning.
I ordered identical sabers with a coupler so they could be joined into a saber staff. The coupler looks great with the same quality lathe work as the hilts. It screws in like butter and doesn't obscure the sound too much. When assembled, the activation buttons on the two sabers line up exactly like one would expect on a saber at this price point.
Is it a bit spendy? Yes. Is it a long time to wait? Yes. Is it easily apparent why it costs what it does and takes as long as it takes to make? Absolutely. Quality costs money and takes time and the latest additions to my saber collection ooze quality like melting gold.
If you have the money an can wait for the construction time, you won't be disappointed.

So yes, VV makes the best production combat ready sabers out there. Brighter than US and louder. (SF does not compare in any category). And priced the same as US. What you get is better with the color changing option and sound font lock to correspond the sound you want with the color you want on the fly. Only down side would be the wait times, which are absolute killer. But once you have it in your hands, it is worth it. Just know it is about an 8 month wait no matter what you here. Maybe less but that's it.

This is my first vaders vault saber and what else can I say but Absolutely stunning. I've heard the quality is good and well worth the waiting time but this has just blown me away. Everything about this saber from the way it feels to how it sounds and it's over all build quality is superb. I am currently saving to buy another saber and will definitely be returning to vaders vault. Thanks guys.

Even though the sabre took a while to ship, it's pretty cool. Nice and durable, with weight behind the blade. It is really excellent.

This saber exceeds my expectations. The quality is superb and the attention to detail makes it well worth the price. I absolutely recommend it without any hesitation. You will not be disappointed.

This is my first order from Vader's Vault and the product is awesome. The sound quality is great and the ease of changing colors with the button combination is my favorite feature. It is seamless to do so which gives me a lot of variability in alternating colors. The brightness is impressive as well. It is light weight and perfect for dueling or just practicing fencing. Custom service was good as well. They always picked up the phone and provided me with an order status.

This thing is light, and the wrap in distressed brown is amazing. I'm so glad I went with meds weathering, it looks amazing. I seriously can't say enough about the quality of this saber.

Als ich das Lichtschwert hier bei Vader´Vault bestellt habe war mir klar das es einige Zeit dauern würde bis es aus Amerika in Deutschland ankommt.Nach fast einem halben Jahr Wartezeit wurde ich dann doch nervös und nahm Kontakt auf.Die netten Leute von VV konnten mich jedoch schnell beruhigen und versprachen mir das sich das Warten gelohnt habe.Als ich das Paket dann endlich in den Händen hielt und es auspackte haute es mich schlicht aus den Latschen!!!
Habe bei dem Preis natürlich einiges erwartet aber das es so grandios wird konnte ich mir nicht vorstellen.Die Abnutzungseffekte und der Rost auf der Klinge sehen absolut grandios aus.Die Leuchtkraft ist so beeindruckend.Der Sound ist der Hammer!Könnte ewig so weiter machen.......Vielen Dank Vader´s Vault and Greetings from good old Germany .-)
