Was looking at ultra sabers and had a question regarding them.

Are any of the hilts acceptable for Jedi? Or just the ones that don't have "dark" in the name? (It's a totally stupid question, I know, but they're pricey so I want to make sure.)

I think as long as the blade isn't red and the hilt doesn't look super evil, it's approvable.

Thanks! I'm holding off on a purchase until I have my clothing bits concepted and done up, color scheme finalized, before I buy. But I'm keeping an eye on the various vendors I know about as part of planning the overall concept.

I just applied for a generic jedi and bought my first saber from Ultrasabers because of price and what I was going to be using it for...trooping:





I have yet to hear of my application status but stay away from a red blade and you should be fine.

Basically. If you have a red blade that's out. If the hilt has spikes and claws and such that won't work.

So long as it looks like a functional, saber as seen on Jedi you should be fine.

I'm guessing the curved ones are out too since it was really only Ventress who had curved hilts for her sabers?

Komari Vosa, Count Dooku, and Asajj Ventress are the only ones I know of. If you have other references do share. (but they we're all dark Jedi and Sith).

Since I don't know who that first one is, there's little chance I could provide other examples. Just confirming that curved is not Jedi approvable. Want to make sure I don't waste my money buying something that will prevent my outfit from getting me in.

One of Dooku's earlier apprentices, who became a dark Jedi / Crime Lord. (Bounty Hunter Video Game).

Correct, without reference curved hilts would be good to avoid.

I use Saberdyne Industries lightsabers made by the Sons of ObiWan in Aus. These two, and a third one which is similar have all been approved.

Ahsoka Tano's later lightsabers (in Rebels) had curved hilts.

True they do have a really subtle curve to them; after she leaves the Jedi Order.

Thank you all for your kind responses. All very helpful. Once I nail down the design and color scheme of my soft pieces I'll be looking for my saber(s).

Dumb newbie question and search isn't helping me.

Other than Ultra Sabers, where do you find good light sabers?

Saberforge

Electrum Sabers
Vader’s Vault
Parks Sabers (Face Characters only)

There are also several lightsaber groups on Facebook you could join and ask for advice/opinions.
