Subject: Circle DT Luke confirmation needed Sun Feb 12, 2017 8:41 pm
Hi all. I recently bought this DT Luke, (promoted as a circle variant saber).
I have no reason to think that it's nothing but legit, but given that all the info I've seen points towards expert advice being needed to be sure, I thought this would be the best place to ask. It would be seriously gutting if it's not a legit DT, but I'd rather know if that was the case.
I've taken various photos, (Hopefully clear enough, but if not some pointers on photographing this in high resolution would be great). Just trying to suss out sizing to upload them.
I'd be interested to see what the concensus is on the Sabers legitimacy.

I am by no means an expert on DT sabers but I do know on the ones I have seen while doing research of weapons yours looks pretty good if you look at the other side of the handle is there a raised bump or any letters I know there were ones with both but not sure if they came with no markings at all. But from what I can see it looks good.

Thanks for the reply Larry. I'll do a hilt bump check. Edit: checked and there's no bump as far as I can see. There is a small circle on the other side of the hilt from where you thought that bump may be. I haven't been able to capture it on a photo as yet.
Theres definitely no letters, which from my research so far holds up for a circles DT.
I couldn't see the bump on the side in your photo when I looked I don't believe there is one on both sides but I could be wrong on that..... Larry
It's a small indented circle, rather than a bump on that side that I've photographed. Not visible in the pics though. I'll get a magnifying glass and see what it really looks like. I haven't identified a bump on the other side with the naked eye, but really need to take a closer look to be sure.

The pictures for me don't show the detail needed to determine if it is a legitimate circle variant. The circles run up and down the shaft of the saber. I am unable to see any of those circles in the pics posted. It may be I am unable to blow up the image so I don't see them though. Also take a picture of the hilt end facing down the length of the saber trying to see the actual opening. So remove the inner or slide it forward at least.
