Good morning all!, I am new to this forum and just started building sabers later last year ( I didnt realize they even existed on this level until scrolling through ebay and for some reason plugging in "custom lightsaber" I am a big SW fan and saw ep4 in the theater at 9 and was hooked ever since! Here is a recent pic with my Jedi Heavy Battle Katana in my workspace/office

Hello all! Glad to be here, I got motivated after catching something on the news on how people would rather do housework than create a profile and passwords (the house is pretty clean LOL!) @ Sandpeople, I live about 30 miles north in Waterford. I recently went through a choice I'm sure a lot of you guys make,and thats how deep you want to get into this hobby and how much disposable income you have to really have your dream collection) I have many hobbies , which this one seems to take the majority of time these days and I'm jacked over the Nano (August is almost over Erv and have a few new designs that the internal artist,designer and engineer wants to see come to fruition, (any-one ever build a proto-saber??? I think this is next

Rogue Five: Sandpeople-Cool! I don't have any of the Noble Collection swords but I have a few of the United Cutlery ones and they are superb replicas as they're modeled directly from the original props. If you're interested in buying another one, I highly recommend

Rogue Five: Anduril. I have one and it is gorgeous and sturdily made. I believe it is a full tang sword so you could swing it around without it flying apart. Trust me, you'll feel like the King of Gondor holding this thing lol.

ARKM: "full tang United Cutlery" is an oxymoron.

ARKM: That does not mean that they aren't nice for hanging on the wall though. I have a UC Kurgan sword. I like it.

Rogue Five: Yeah I wouldn't go looking for a fight with any wall hanger swords lol. I think Anduril and Strider's Ranger sword are the only full tang swords in the LOTR line.

Rogue Five: I looked into getting a functional Anduril from a custom swordsmith but no one I found made a screen accurate one.

Rogue Five: That Kurgan one is nice. Sword afficianados like to dump on it because it has a two piece blade and they're right but who cares! It looks bad a**
