The Dauntless is a Nautica-class saber designed to be as compact as possible without sacrificing battle worthiness. At 8.75 inches long, this hilt is perfect for one-hand use and dual wielding, yet still leaves just enough room for two hands when needed.
The emitter is a crown design that shares elements with the much larger Juggernaut saber. Four window vents allow excellent heat dissipation and the emitter features grooves to provide grip when choking up high.
The body is engraved with 5 grip grooves and is centered between the emitter and the pommel to assist with hand placement when wielding one-handed. The body also houses a recharge port and illuminated activation switch.
The pommel is vented, weighted, and multi-stepped. The steps provide a grip-stop preventing the hilt from sliding out of your grasp. The added weight provides a rear-ward bias which improves the balance of the blade and allows for nimble movements. While the vents allow heat, sound, and vibration to safely leave the hilt.
"Good. Fast. Cheap. Fencing actually does get you all three."
-Torias Batten, Master Fencer, House Sunrunner
One weapon, one hand. That is the fighting style of the fencer. They rely on speed of movement and precision of placement to fell their foes. The art of fencing is one of the oldest combat arts known and many force users have adopted this impressive technique.
Unfortunately, the force wielding fencers of the galaxy have long been relegated to using vibro-blades and stun-batons to achieve peak combat effectiveness rather than the traditional blades of light associated with their kind. This is all well and good until the opponent is using a saber, then the fencer must either be an expert at evasion or activate an energy blade of his own.
Traditionally, saber hilts were slightly too long for optimal one-handed technique, so fencers who used sabers in duels were not performing to their full potential. This became clear at the Fourth Battle of Tannhäuser Gate, where the famed fencer Torias Batten only narrowly survived. With his own saber completely destroyed in the fight, he set forth to finally create a purpose-built fencing saber.
The Dauntless was the fruit of his creation: a saber that was compact, yet fully combat capable. The hilt was made to have a rear weighted bias to balance the weapon when using a single hand, with just enough room on the hilt for a second hand when power is needed. The Dauntless was something never created before, a weapon purposely built for force wielding fencers.
Torias Batten scavenged a focusing emitter from a Juggernaut found on the battlefield and utilized it in the Dauntless design. Since the Juggernaut is one of the largest sabers made, he felt it would be a bit of comic irony.
