I have a couple questions about Glaives in general and the new Dark in particular:

1) Is there a recessed slot on the emitter where the claws attach, or is it flush?

2) Regardless of the above, is the area where the claws attach on the Dark Glaive anodized black as well?

3) Do any owners of the Glaive have pics of it with the claws removed?

4) Can any owner of the Glaive help me out and show off a picture of the Glaive with three of the four claws removed? Maybe even two? I'm thinking two adjacent claws.


I ask all the questions because, as the Glaive is shown stock, it's just a little TOO much. For me it's past elegant and into almost nerdy machismo. But I love the slotted emitter, the pommel, the lower hilt, just about everything else. I had simply crossed it off my list, but the new Dark is really nice looking on the parts I like, and maybe I could make it work with some or all of the claws removed. The little clawlet on (perish the word) Dooku's looks kind of cool for instance.

Thanks for your help!

The claws are actually quite easy to remove.  They are held flush to the emitter with a retention bolt similar to the one that holds the blade. Simply use the same hex wrench to remove them, however when doing so consider this. Above the bolt behind each claw are two small pins to help hold the claw straight. Haven't figured out how to remove them yet, but i'm not planning to.

Thanks for showing what a claw looks like removed. If I squint my eyes it looks as if my idea of a single claw, or perhaps two adjacent claws, might look pretty cool.

Any chance of getting you to take a pick so configured? Maybe from farther out?

While I'm asking, how about you go ahead and order the Dark version and retake the pictures requested above with it? Then when you're done with it feel free to just send it along to me. Question solved! Heh.

The whole hilt is black even under the claws, and this hilt is also MHS compatible so you could buy a new emmiter if you dont like all, 3, 2, 1, or no claws on it.
