Dark Ardent™

Current stock: 0


The Dark Ardent™, a fresh take and Vader's Vault spin on traditional design themes. Our first true "Thin Neck" Combat Class saber, we took extra care that while giving the look, balance and feel of the thin neck, we didn't sacrifice the duel worthy durability of the Combat Class. Meant for the active saberist, this saber is balanced and comfortable, melding with the wielder's hand like it was meant for them since birth. This version is the darker and more corrupted side of a traditional saber. The emitter is packed with detail, from the elegant rounded rings at the crown, to the 4 sets of light emitting 'gill slits' in the center. The engraved detail around the switch area offers an asymmetrical catch for the eye. Just enough to give the area some contrast. The middle v-grooved grip provides a non-slip surface in a traditional fashion. The rear, vertically milled 'booster' section offers an off-set to the v-grooved grip. The pommel stands out as a very familiar power cell design with raised cubes, but in a non obtrusive, unique placement, complete with wide sound vents for great volume and resonance control. This entire saber screams elegance, and power. Get yours today!

Dar Ardent

5 months to completion on this saber, extremely impressed with the quality of the neopixel blade. I ordered with grip top removal as well as grenade milling. Also ordered with bluetooth Rice upgrade which works really well. Was able to pick it up right from their shop as they completed it says before the festival I ordered it for. Thanks so much VV for making my childhood dreams come true!

My first Vader's Vault saber

I am still somewhat new to the saber scene. I have two saberforge sabers and one that I have commissioned someone to build from scratch. So I figured that I would go ahead and see what all the fuss was about when it comes to VV sabers. Dark Ardent Plectar Pixel has more than surpassed my greatest expectations. The hilt is well balanced and the perfect weight and fits perfectly into my hand. The feel of the hilt screams QUALITY! The sound quality is outstanding as well as the new plectar pixel setup. I would buy more but I have spent almost 4k in sabers over the past year and need to take a slight breather lol. I can not think of a single negative thing that I would say about this saber. The wait seemed like a long time but quality takes time, great job guys this is an outstanding saber
