For over a year I have been slowly working on sketches that would one day become my vision for Jaina Solo’s lightsaber. When the Crystal Focus version Six was announced I knew it was time. Finally I could build a saber which would allow me to fine tune the colour blend for the blade, and make it different for each sound bank!
The saber’s design had to be smaller than usual, but still feel like a lightsaber. The look had to be elegant, yet functional and tool-like. This is the weapon of a serious Jedi Knight who is not flashy, but gets the job done no matter what. An ace fighter pilot and leader who is not afraid to go rogue if that’s what the mission requires.
Some recent images were added after I weathered the saber.
This saber is composed of;
- T6 aluminum body
- Crystal Focus v.6 with Color Extender
- 7.4 volt 18500 Lithium Ion Battery Pack
- 6 segment SMD bargraph onboard the CF
- 1.5w Premium speaker
- 1.3mm recharge port
- R.I.C.E. equipped
- Genuine quartz crystal – to be changed to Synthetic crystal soon
- Brass roller-style activation switch
