After a couple month wait, I got my Dark Prophecy V3 in.  Thanks to those who suggested tri-Cree- wow!

Iíve noticed that the hilt isnít smooth and sleek like my dark apprentice and Dominix v4.  It has what I can best  descrbe as a texture on it.  Like a ribbed sheen.   Is this normal?

Blazing Red.  Havenít figured out how to post pics. 

  Itís hard to describe.  Itís like thousands of grooves that you can feel with your hand.  Where as my dark initiate and and apprentice feels smooth and has a glassy look.  This has a sheen and grooves throughout. Itís a completely different feel.

It's machining marks, I got a Prophecy during the raffle and it came the same way. The machine marks are just not as clean as other sabers I have gotten before. My Daughter who I bought a Prophecy for lady year even said the same thing, hers is not like that. Don't know if US would consider this a defect (don't would have had to notice it while putting it together) or not. It didn't bother me in mine so I wasn't worried about it. If you really think it is an issue then you need to contact US.

Oh if its just the top section of the emitter end then shouldn't matter anyway, can't really see that in pictures when the blade is turned on. I personally find that kinda cool though, like old Sith battle damage or something but the rest of the hilt survived Tongue You should weather the emitter end some more, would look sweet I think =] You probably want the whole thing shiny and pretty though, just an idea

If it's like mine or is the whole body, it is just hard to get a picture. He is a photo of mine, if you zoom in you cab see the lines.

Hmm. That is kinda weird then x.x Hopefully it was just like a rush job for those 3 said Prophecies and its not like that all the time for either versions of the sabers

Itís those machining marks all over.  I shouldnít pretend to know their production process, but it feels like they were supposed to dip in a coating and didnít.  It feels (to the hand) unfinished/unpolished.  Photos canít really capture the coarse feeling.  Kind of reminds me of those old 80s vinyl holograms with the ribbed lines.  Sounds like a vinyl record scratch when you run a finger nail over it.   


I emailed Marlena and we will see what happens.

Hi.  The black anodized coating should be smooth like this on all parts of the saber.  Smiley

Have some sabers... quite a few... and I know how to wield them.

You can see it real good on this picture of you zoom in on it (by the emitter holes). I noticed it right away but it didn't bother me and I already did work on it anyway.

Can't really tell on mine, but that's more due to what I've done to it

Just my two cents- but from what iíve experienced, on all of my non-anodized / non-gripped saber bits, thereís micro grooves in the aluminum to give it some friction.  I mostly noticed it on the shroud for my Consular.  If they werenít there, a sweaty hand could very easily create an unplanned projectile😉

Yes, some hilts have those micro grooves around the diameter mostly from emitter to pommel, some don't. My Prophecies have them, the Dominix and Aeon v2/v3 don't, nor do the Reapers, but the Catalysts, Guardian and Bellicose all do to some degree, and I think that the Sentinels do too.
