    I absolutely loved the shroud that goes over the choke piece!

    I really like this saber. I'm glad to see that you got the brass polished up, it really makes a difference. The shroud over the choke gives it an interesting look. I noticed you didn't demo it with a blade, do you not have one yet?

    Nice work! For better results on your pics (especially for brass), turn the flash off on your camera and try to get a LOT of light on the saber from outside sources (lamps etc).

    If you're new, please take the time we all consider just as precious as you and READ!

    To Fender, you must listen, yes! I like the look of it (and I loves me some brass, silver, and black) but the hard light is very distracting and muddles seeing the detail. A simple 3 point light set up or a soft light box would help tremendously. Still shots, if you can't afford those and have a tripod, set your camera on the tripod then use the timer on yuor camera. The timer should give it just enough time for the camera to settle down so the focus will be clear.
    Play around with it and saber on, dude!

    Best pics are taken outside/near windows with natural light.

    I like the saber but the name seems kind of forced.
