Default Star Wars - Windu Saber - Slight Customization

First go at a saber, we all make right one? Anyways, I took the liberty of changing a few small things I didn't like, adding/removing/changing buttons/dials. I wasn't a big fan of the original grip, and I don't like how it ended up so I have a new plan that I think will look pretty cool and I will have to go back and cut and model it out. It should be pretty quick though since its relatively low poly until I smooth it out which makes it really easy to go back and change things around. I will be sure to have renders from multiple angles next time, just didn't have the time tonight. I also forgot one REALLY important thing, which is noticeable in the end near the camera, and that is to boolean the hole for the blade to come out of (might be handy right?) But other than the hole and redoing the grip the modeling is all done so its basically just tweaking the materials now, which need some work. The lighting and reflections are all HDRI and yes before anyone asks, the lightsaber is sitting on a table in the middle of a street

All constructive crit welcome!

I think it looks pretty awesome. Always liked Windu's hilt the best.

Could I suggest maybe turning down the reflection a bit? Maybe between 65%-80%, which is still pretty reflective. That might give it a more defined look.
