The Dark 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. This version is the darker and more corrupted side of a traditional saber. 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 middle v-grooved grip provides a non-slip surface in a traditional fashion. The rear, vertically milled 'booster' section offers an off-set 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've loved Star Wars since I was a little kid, Who doesn't want to be a Jedi?!? I currently own 7 saber hilts in total. This is my first VV hilt, and I can't stop admiring it. I watch TV with it by my side! Highly recommend getting a VV, and the Dark Ardent is a great starting place if you're looking for a slim, sleek design. Cannot say enough about this beautiful work of art. Price point may feel a little high, but it's well worth the price, and the wait.
The Vader's Vault team did an excellent job on this saber. The fit and finish is top notch, not one rough edge and very comfortable to hold. I opted for medium weathering and heat bluing and they did an amazing job on on both, especially the bluing it looks so real. The cfx board paired with plector pixel is easy to figure out and comes loaded with great fonts and blade profiles, fire blade and rain sizzle look amazing. VV is your one stop shop for sabers and you will not be disappointed with their work.
Pixel blades are the only way to fly. Vaders does a great job putting them together.
Let me start off by saying Vaders Vault is awesome. They have great customer service and endless options for making a saber truly your own. I purchased the Dark Ardent and received it exactly within the time frame they gave. The saber exceeded my expectations. The machine work is flawless, and you can tell the staff at Vaders Vault love what they do. The Plecter Pixel technology is great. The brightness is unmatched, and the effects that accompany are sweet. I highly recommend any Vaders Vault product to any new or experienced saber enthusiast.
