This is my review of my Spectre with engravings. Ordered early July, received december, 29th.

First of all, I'm not a big fan of Kanan Jarrus. So stop Jarrusing at me...
Second of all, his saber still looks awesome. And US' take on it appealed to me. Especially the version with engravings (not canon at all).
The hilt features an angled activation box with silver non-illuminated AV switch, a recharge port, a D-ring, a windowed emitter.
Now, here we go for the saber porn.



The hilt is huge. But fits nicely in my small hands. It's comfy for one hand or two hands stance, though two hands is probably better for my hands size.
It's beautiful. The engravings are awesome. The details are very nice. And the windowed emitter compliment the hilt very nicely.
It's my first D-ring, and I have to admit the tinkling of the ring can be disturbing.

I ordered it in Sentinel Yellow with silver FOC. But since this is an emerald saber, it's not set in stone. (Though with me it probably is)
Here it is with the cousins.

This looks really good; that engraving really does set it off, like you said.

Thanks for sharing with us, and Im glad you enjoy your sabers; I know you waited long enough for them.

I didn't even know who Jarusis was, but then I found out how often sabers with tsubas are. Glad you can love it. I might say however, it might look good with a Dorinian pommel. Less sharp corners, you know.

I've seen pics of it with a Dorinian pommel (was it yours?). To be fair, dorinian pommels go well with almost anything. But I like the Spectre like it is.

You'll love it. It's quite large, but it's a very nice design!

I do really tend to like the look of these hilts with engravings. It's really good looking overall, and I would probably appreciate the tsuba with a smaller emitter on top; since I feel in use it'd reduce it's effectiveness by "helping" the incoming blade past the "guard". But overall I do like the look a lot. I also feel you on the D-ring rattling. I've been trying to reduce rattle within my initiate to no avail yet, so I know how it can distract or frustrate when in motion.

Yeah, it was my first d-ring so... I should have expected it though, as I have one on my airsoft m&p15 and when not on the sling, it did jingle a lot =D but I had forgotten.
This is probably the only hilt where I like US version way more than the original hilt design. The engraving on this particular one is stellar. I love it.

I did, but it was the temptation for the wares of the vendor of a different product, so now I need to re-cinch the purse-strings.

I feel like I desire a Grandmaster or Empress in black a bit more/first though...

I do want at least one with a d-ring anyway! It's like that eclectic touch and minorly different functionality in how it's worn as well. I think I have a good idea how to integrate it into an outfit
