Saberforge Silver Knight Lightsaber Hilt Review

The Saberforge Silver Knight lightsaber hilt is a custom saber inspired by the design of the Imperial Knight lightsaber in Star Wars Legends. Saberforge Silver Knight is a gorgeous, two-toned hilt predominantly metallic silver in color with a black grip section and a few black accents. Silver Knight was first released in 2015. The hilt has been discontinued.

The simple, yet elegant design of the hilt references several Original Trilogy and Prequel Trilogy lightsaber design cues like the slanted emitter and the black, horizontally grooved grip section. The hilt is about 12.5 inches long from the highest point of the emitter to the pommel and is designed to accept a 1 inch diameter blade.

The slanted emitter shroud, similar in design to the Darth Vader lightsaber, Skywalker lightsaber, and Anakin Skywalker AOTC lightsaber, tops the Silver Night hilt. A flat-top emitter, dotted with a series of small, black indentations, lies beneath the shroud, peaking out near the lowest point of the angled cut of the shroud.  A circular, flat black greeblie with a flat edge is situated in the lower part of the emitter area.

The hilt widens into its second, larger shroud, a lengthy metallic silver colored shroud. The shroud features a large, cutout window on one side that exposes the black grip section beneath. The black grip section and its shroud is similar in design to the Qui-Gon Jinn lightsaber and the Obi-Wan Kenobi TPM/AOTC lightsaber. Unlike the Prequel Trilogy hilts, however, Silver Knight’s grip section features thin and shallow grooves rather than deep grooves.

The rear of the hilt features two retention screws: a black retention screw and an LED module retention screw. The LED module retention screw is situated in a slightly tapered choke point below the slanted emitter shroud. Two switch holes are cut into the grip section shroud.

A silver colored Covertec wheel attaches to the lower side of the grip section shroud. The opposite side of the Covertec wheel is balances out with a small, flat, circular greeblie. A thin, black groove is situated below the Covertec wheel. The black groove visually ties in with the grip section and the smaller black elements throughout the hilt.

A raised ring section indicates the top of the vented pommel. A small D-ring hooks through a small domed section that caps off the end of the pommel and the end of the hilt itself.

Overall, Saberforge Silver Knight is a gorgeous hilt exuding a simple elegance while referencing and honoring to other popular character hilts.
