The new Electrum Wind brings another iconic and loved saber designs to the Ultrasabers lineup. The Electrum Wind is of course fully made of T6 Aircraft Aluminum and combat ready. This hilt design has been sought after by saber enthusiasts and we are happy to add this one to our line up. The emitter is removable and Gold Anodized and features windows to show light when the blade is illuminated. Additionally, several other pieces of the Electrum Wind are gold anodized to accent the black grips and black textured pieces on the rear of the hilt and near the pommel. The grips come in two different version: Round and Chamfered. The pommel is removable and comes in two different versions: Gold Finish and Black Finish. The Electrum Wind is able to accommodate sound installs, Emerald LED driver installs, and has a MHS compatible emitter & pommel as well.

The Electrum Wind comes standard with a non-illuminated AV switch, is 1.6" wide, and 12.25" long from the top of the emitter to the bottom of the pommel. The saber comes completely assembled and ready to go. The pommel and emitter are removable and compatible with TCSS MHS parts. Sound and the Emerald LED driver are also available options. Both Standard Setup and Li-Ion Setup work perfectly for an Electrum Wind with No Sound. However, Li-Ion Setup is mandatory in order to add sound or the Emerald driver to the Electrum Wind.

First impressions ? . . . . really liking the silver / gold / black features . . . a VERY impressive hilt indeed  Cool


A couple of questions tho ?

1.6" wide . . . is that the outer diameter of the grip section ? and
are the textured section & grips, rubber or plastic, or anodised aluminium ?

A few notes- the cut out around the switch section looks nice esp. in the video, that is one serious socket retention screw(I like that style), gold anodizing should be bullet proof, MHS emitter(had guessed it was going to be fixed Smiley), and the new textured sections, good stuff.  

1.6" wide seems a bit large to me, so the smaller round vertical grips would be a better fit IMO and I like that style more.  This pommel should be well sought after to diversify the other LE gold accented hilts out there . . . a welcome addition.


Edit:  Thinking about it the Electrum Wind activation box would make a very nice detail on a few other hilt designs as well.

First impression - that's a good looking hilt.
Now to wait and see who decides to order it and give it a full review.

It seems this hilt can be optioned with an illuminated LATCHING av switch for a stunt saber . . . cool



Also, did anyone else notice the retention screws on the back of the grip section (about 50 seconds into the video) . . . I'm thinking this hilt will be put together in a very creative way to achieve the 3 hilt colours (silver / gold / black)

EDIT :





And . . . Emory does say "The Electrum Wind is of course fully made of T6 Aircraft Aluminum" . . . so i guess that answers that question, lol . . .

It's the compromise between accommodating the guts and maintaining the proportions, I guess. The Menace is the best for keeping everything in line size-wise, but the canon hilts were always designed with looks in mind; They didn't have to accommodate anything inside, after all!

I'm impressed with the EW any way. It looks slimmer than I'd expected, based on the con photos. It's not high on my list (not with the Tano hilt coming soon!) so I'm not ordering it straight away... but I'm looking forward to the reviews, and may well end up picking this up in the not too distant future.

Also, did anyone else notice the retention screws on the back of the grip section (about 50 seconds into the video) . . . I'm thinking this hilt will be put together in a very creative way to achieve the 3 hilt colours (silver / gold / black)

Good catch. I'd guess that section would be a shroud like on the Consular/Mantis etc?

Damn you US! Why do you have to wave a pretty lightsaber in my face and threaten my savings balance?!

Actually, I've been waiting for a while for a detailed and pretty lightsaber to come out so I could get myself a new one. I'm not a fan of crossguard hilts, though I was lucky enough to see and hold a renegade recently (ultrasabers are very popular locally) and it was far better than I thought it would be. And while the V4s are nice they aren't what I've been after. Detail, tri colour (I've been liking the idea of a hilt with gold), a design I like.... It's ticking all the boxes. This might find itself in my collection very soon! I haven't made a new hilt purchase in nearly two years after all! *sads*

The size is the only downer for me, I have small hands after all, but I shall have to seriously think on this one!
