Interesting, but only one thing ( just so you know, I'm a huge star wars fan geek), the normal lightsaber does not have an inward slant like that, more like it's straight, then at the end it suddenly points. Other than that, it's completely awesome!

The method of showing the glow on the person etc is a nice add for this tut.

While this is an old bump, its worth mentioning the other tut from the Wikibook on PDN as it sort of covers the tip in this derivation: Wikibook lightsaber tut

Brief, effective, and entertaining. Thanks for restoring the tute, ReMake and Ego, and thanks to the OP who isn't around anymore unfortunately.

 

A quick play (I feel the glow looks too shaky):
