Watch Ultrasabers Dark Standard Issue Battle Saber V3 lightsaber review blazing red on YouTube
Dark Standard Issue V3 is very basic and is a somewhat uniform diameter from the emitter to the pommel of the hilt (the grooves add a small variation in the diameter). Unlike many lightsaber hilts, Dark Standard Issue V3 doesn’t have any tapers or choke points. The most distinctive feature of the hilt design is the slanted emitter at the top.
The hilt features an attractive color contrast between the anodized black body and the metallic silver colored grooves. The hilt incorporates long vertical grooves in the grip area that complement short, horizontal grooves near the emitter area and pommel area.
The hilt is comprised of two parts: the body and pommel. The pommel is removable and MHS compatible. The hilt is also thick and solid. The hilt dimensions are 1.48 inches in diameter and 12.25 inches long. The length and solidness of Dark Standard Issue Battle Saber V3 allow the lightsaber to be used as a two-handed dueling lightsaber. The lightsaber looks great with a red LED, which complements the predominantly ‘dark side’ black hilt.
Ultrasabers buyers will sometimes receive Dark Standard Issue Battle Saber V3 as a Grab Bag Saber or Mystery Box Saber.
