Shiny saber you got there, let me fix that.

You did a pretty good job, Here's my two cents.

I wouldn't say the Sentinal is inspired by Bastila's hilt. The emitters are too different, looks more original to me.
In addition to those hilts, the Prophecy is a good approximation of Anakin's AOTC hilt.
The Shock and Shock LE are Jedi Clan sabers. (Dark shock just being a color variation)
I've heard others call the Arbiter a Obi Wan approximation. I'm not sure I agree, but food for thought.
I always saw the Monarch as an original design.
Malice is Darth Malgus.

I think the War Glaive is inspired by Jaesa Wilsaam's staff in SWTOR.

I would say the Mantis is loosely based on Dooku's saber.

Also, I don't care what Wookieepedia says, I'm reasonably sure that the Savior is Revan's purple jedi saber, and the Butcher is his red Sith saber. Because that makes a lot more sense.

Seems like you and PshychoSith have something to discus about.

I'm sorry but not the case. Even the new Black Series Jedi Revan that gamestop announced has him holding a purple Butcher.

[/quote,]

Mantis is an original design based on everyone's desire for a curved saber. The emitter claw combo on the Scorpion is more Dooku inspired than the Mantis.
In every illustration I have see on Revan's sabers the Savior was the shape of his red one and the Butcher matches his purple.
