Hi everyone. Came across this forum looking for help building a lightsaber for my son. So far all I have is an empty hilt that I purchased last week. Is there a beginners section here? I actually have no idea where to start.
Hi and welcome aboard! While I'm not from Philly (or even US, for that matter), I've been a Flyers fan since 1985.
This community is very beginner friendly, but we don't have a specific newbie section. The saberbuilding process may feel overwhelming at first, but I suggest you browse through the Saber Talk section (scroll down below) first, to check out what people have done before. Then you can find all kinds of useful info from Saber Helps & How to's and other subsections. And you can always post a new topic about your build, so the more experienced saberbuilders can throw you ideas & suggestions.

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**
