Ok so Im looking at a new saber. I don't know if I like a black hilt for a Jedi though and was wondering what all of you think.

Qui-Gon Jinn's lightsaber was mostly black, as was Old Ben's. On a lightsaber it's fine; only with clothing does it carry other implications.

I don't see a problem with it. Besides, now Jedi can wear all black, so why not go for a black lightsaber too? Smile

Both my husband and I painted our saber hilts, they are not completely black but they are on the darker side of the colors we used. We did NRJedi and did not have a problem with approval.

If you don't feel comfortable with it, buy some schedule 40 PVC in the appropriate Internal Diameter and cut a shroud for it. Paint the shroud silver with some Krylon (don't forget to give the shroud an alcohol bath first), and call it good.

Yeah I don't think it is an approval issue, but even most sith don't have sabers with that much black on the hilt.

If you really like the ultrasaber I think the suggestion above is a great idea.

Yeah, compare Darth Maul's lightsaber with Qui-Gon's. Maul's has almost no black at all, while Jinn's is almost entirely black - and it looks great. The black is just swell for a Jedi, so really the only question is this: do YOU like it?

Personally, I've never liked Ultrasabers' black anodized sabers. For me, they're too black. It feels like someone at the office asked "How can we make this, only an evil version?" and someone responded "Paint it black!"

I dunno, something about them just doesn't "look" right to me.

no, you can't use that at all. Since we live close to each other, more than likely we'll be trooping together at some point. I'll trade you sabers just to help you out.... Razz

Man, wave that thing around proudly! Been pouring over US stuff and want one with the RGB set up very badly! It looks awesome. which blade did you get with it?
