I kinda echo Prysha's concern, it looks awesome but in terms of combat it likely wouldn't work. Part of the dual saber combat technique is to change grips constantly. A hilt with a guard like that would likely become a hindrance more than a help

Yeah see that's why I was a bit iffy about the idea of adding a guard at all. If you wanted to have a hand guard you'd be better incorporating it into the gloves rather than the blade. Especially given that a good wielder will let the hilt roll over the back of their hand... The only thing I could think to do would be to make over sized guards with lots of room that could actually act as another form of handhold... if that makes sense

Ok, I rarely comment on art but these are just amazing.

I'm literally in awe that someone can casually make something that awesome during server maintenance. =X
