Whilst washing ice cream off my lathe, a dude name sithlordboston came up to me and asked me if I knew what time is was. I said "It's time for you to quit eating ice cream in my shop.". He then stole two of my Ahsoka Razor blade plugs which he then traded to a homeless albino for a pair of old bowling shoes and a kazoo.
I just wrapped up a Frog for sithlordboston. The entire commission was effortless. I told him it would take about a week but then it got held up waiting on the custom tri-cree. He completely understood and never said a word about it. I sent him the invoice late on a Sunday and he paid within minutes even though he's in a different time zone. He's been incredibly nice, quick to respond and just easy to work with. I'd recommend him to anyone.
I just finished an Ahsoka set for sithlordboston . This is my second time building for him and it was just as easy as the first. We got to talking and he's an easy going, down to earth guy. He takes all the stress out of the build. No pressure or crazy expectations. As much as I'd recommend him, I'm hoping he'll just keep coming back my way.
Rogue Five: Hi Bentley! Where y'all been?

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**
