The Ardent™, a fresh take and Vader's Vault spin on traditional design themes. Our first true "Thin Neck" Combat Class saber, we took extra care that while giving the look, balance and feel of the thin neck, we didn't sacrifice the duel worthy durability of the Combat Class. Meant for the active saberist, this saber is balanced and comfortable, melding with the wielder's hand like it was meant for them since birth. The emitter is packed with detail, from the elegant rounded rings at the crown, to the 4 sets of light emitting 'gill slits' in the center. The engraved detail around the switch area offers an asymmetrical catch for the eye. Just enough to give the area some contrast. The other side offers the chance to add extra flair with an optional SMD LED bargraph or OLED screen, and different frame metals as well. The middle v-grooved grip provides a non-slip surface in a traditional fashion. The rear, vertically milled 'booster' section offers an off-set look to the v-grooved grip. The pommel stands out as a very familiar power cell design with raised cubes, but in a non obtrusive, unique placement, complete with wide sound vents for great volume and resonance control. This entire saber screams elegance, and power. Get yours today!

I ordered a custom ardent with light weathering and leather wrap, the result is a beautiful saber with a rustic feel to it, and definitely worth the wait!
As soon as i got the saber I put it to work right away, light dueling, spinning, the balance is amazing, it's bright and loud!. I christened the saber by taking it to the Fan Expo Canada without the blade as an accessory and even then just hanging from my belt people actually noticed, and few stopped to ask questions.
Definitely happy with the purchase, and for those who are thinking about the wait time, get it and be patient, trust me it's well worth the wait.
I just received my Ardent lightsaber right before I had to go to a comic con. Thanks to the producers of the saber they were able to get it to me on time and in pristine condition. I had many people stop me to take pictures of me with it turned on because it was very bright and in fact I stumbled upon a competitor from saberforge and let him see the weapon. He said "Wow this is really lightweight" as he worked it in a couple flourishes.
After I let him check the weapon out he got kind of snobby and chose not to associate with me afterwards because you could see the difference in brightness between his blade and mine. I'm totally impressed what the workmanship and durability of the Ardent and highly recommend it.
I was very happy with the overall quality of this saber. It is surprising how small the hilt feels in your hand. It really feels great. Alan and Deanna were very patient with my questions and handled the transaction very professionally.
waited a long time to get my hands on this lovely thin neck saber, ARdent. the build quality and the electronics inside are top notched. the hilt fits in your hand nicely and spinning it is awesome. i only wish the hilt was a bit heavier so i can use a thicker wall blade so it be more balanced. so far this is the best saber i own.
