Not that a saber already belonging to an unchained warrior of the Sith Empire needs to be any darker, but everything looks better in black right? Our Acolyte saber with black in all the right places to give it contrast and a more 'tactical' feel. 12.75" long for a true two handed grip, controls up high and out of the way, and included D-Ring for belt hanging.

25-year-old from Germany here. I just fetched my Dark Acolyte from the mail-station and got more hyped with every step towards my home. The temptation to unbox it straightaway was really high, but the feeling when it finally dropped out of the package was SUPERCALIFRAGILISTICEXPIALIDOCIOUS :-)
Now I own one of the finest weapons of Science Fiction and it is definitely worth the price!

This saber is absolutely awesome. The construction is just phenomenal. No ruff or hard edges. Everything is fitted perfectly, no lose or off center pieces. I got the Suncrusher wit RGB and It is plenty bright through all the colors. The flicker while the saber is stationary gives it a great realistic feel. The sound is awesome, this thing is loud!
This saber was well worth the wait. This is my first saber and it wont be the last.
Vader's Vault is the best!!!

I ordered a Dark Acolyte with a custom scythe etching and let Alan design what the scythe would look like. He came up with something that looked amazing, and the saber is beautiful and sturdy. I got a white suncrusher which came with blue flash on clash which is gorgeous. The Acolyte is amazing and all sound is very loud! Can't wait until I order a Havoc!

After 2yrs of researching for my very first lightsaber I decided on vaders vault & the dark acolyte because they both seem to fulfill what I was looking for in a saber. I ordered in late June hoping to recd by my birthday then found out that the initial timetable was pushed due to the backlog caused by TFA. After touching basis w/ Deanna I was promised Xmas with no guarantees. Well I recd it 2wk prior to Xmas. So I kept it package until Xmas & in the meantime enjoyed Rouge One. When I finally opened my saber it exceeded what I was expecting. I cannot emphasize enough on the size of the hilt. It truly feels good in your hands and performs like a beast. Unlike the toy replica of my fav lightsaber of all time (the graflex) which is too bulky for practical use. Function over form is my motto. My entire family was playing with my lightsaber & seem to be the hit of the party. A Big thank you to the staff of vaders vault for making me a kid once again. I look forward to seeing what you have planned for the future. Vaders vault for life.

I found it right here. There are plenty of options to make it your own. It was every bit worth the time and money.

Once again they have proven their craftsmanship and attention to detail to be top of the line. Furthermore, the customer service along the way is always top notch! I got this hilt leather wrapped, weathered, and with the colors inverted and it turned out far better than how I imagined it would. The interal chassis fits snugly inside with absolutely NO rattling. What's more is how impressed I am at their ability to put the power and aux buttons so high up and close to the led module! All around stunning hilt! I have average sized hands for a male and the saber is comfortable to hold no matter where you grab it! The only negative thing I have to say is the fact that it has a strange odor to it which I'd imagine may possibly be from the weathering and the finish. Would and do recommend!

I don't know what to add that Unknown Reviewer didn't already so eloquently say on Jan 26!
This piece really is nothing short of spectacular in every aspect. The quality and care in the build is evident from the moment you first handle it, and only becomes more and more apparent as you explore the myriad of layers in the detailing. With subtle tapers and chamfered edges, it's going to look sleek and sharp as a shelf trophy. It also feels smooth in your hand no matter where you hold it and makes for a great 2 handed dueler.
This saber was a first for me in a number of areas; RGB, multi-font, electronics chassis, specialty blades, hand-crafting. Vader's Vault did not fail me in any of those.
Sincere customer service. Top tier product. No regrets.

Where to start with the description on this amazing work of art? Everything is above my expectations even after all of the time vested on researching, comparing, and scouring through pictures & reviews while waiting. I ordered mine with a 34" heavy grade blade, as this is a more 2 handed sized hilt, I wanted a longer more true 2 handed size blade. Weight distribution, even with the longer & heavy grade blade - is perfect, in fact everything is. Watching Vader's Vaults demo videos for this saber, they definitely stay true to designing with comfort in mind, at a sacrifice of nothing! For such a small diameter, the speaker is LOUD, amazing LED quality (especially for orange, it is not "washed out" at all.) The Plecter labs Crystal Shard board, impeccable. The amount of features included (blaster reflect, lock up, flash-on-clash, 6 font bank, electronic chassis, etc.) is what sold me on becoming a VV Customer - and I must say they now have a customer for life! Customer service through the extended build times from the Ep.7 release was excellent, A+ for service, A++ for product, and A+++ satisfied customer. If one is in the market for a saber that is crafted with the quality of Art, and is not out to spend thousands, but still wants as much quality and product as possible - Vader's Vault is your answer, and I will stand by saying there will be no disappointment! Thank you again VV for the perfect piece for my collection!
