Titanium is my fav alloy and that's one of the most beautiful saber handles I've ever seen.

Great job 5postboy.

Magnificent.

That is 'Super Elite Edition.'

I think this marks prop history as the very first completed titanium lightsaber replica.

Congratulations, Chen.

How heavy is it?

I imagine it has some weight, since titanium is about twice as heavy as aluminum.

850 grams.

Chen, that's the best version of this saber I've seen. Stunning.

To be honest,

I really don't think this saber LOOKS much better than the other ROTJ Luke's I've seen, BUT what sets it apart are those LEDs.

I'm VERY impressed by those light-up LEDs. :thumbsup

Knowing a little bit about how tough it is to work with titanium and something about its expense (I've read quite a bit on aviation history and the SR-71 Blackbird development "saga"), the creator of this blade was extraordinarily brave and must have been mildly crazy to use the alloy. The stuff's expensive and a bitch to machine even if its strength-to-weight is far superior to most alloys. Kudos. :thumbsup

I'm sure Chen would get a lot of praise from ex-Skunkworks employees on this project... :lol

I'm sure more than a few of them would be wondering WHY a civilian would work a hobby project out in the metal... :confused :lol

amazing.

My wedding ring is titanium, and I'm always amazed at how light and strong it is. Someday, when I win that big lotto jackpot, I'm going to have a titanium rapier and dagger set custom made. ;)
