Saberforge Initiate, Artificer, Warrior, Veteran, Champion, Hero: What’s the Difference?

Saberforge offers 5 electronics tiers on their lightsabers including: Initiate, Artificer, Warrior, Veteran, Champion, and Hero. Let’s take a closer look at each of the 5 Saberforge tiers.

Saberforge Initiate Tier (Empty Hilt only, no electronics)
The Initiate Tier, the most basic level, includes an empty hilt only (no electronics). By default, Saberforge glues dummy switches into the switch holes so the hilt could be used as a display piece right out of the box. If you plan to install the empty hilt, you can make a request in the order notes to leave the switch holes open. Otherwise you could remove the dummy switches later. Initiate Tier is the default price shown for all sabers on the Saberforge website (excluding Youngling Sabers).
