As I'm sure most of you have seen, this hilt was listed on eBay this past week. However, the winning bidder emailed me shorty after this was auctioned and asked if the order could be canceled. I agreed to do so due the nature of his circumstances.
Due to circumstances of my own, I am asking well below what this saber is worth. Hilts from Aaron's most recent run of these sabers ran $1,400 empty. Never has a saber of this caliber been offered at this price.
Please PM me with any questions you may have.
Description: USA made, this saber is in a class of its own. It is machined by one of the world's most renowned "saber-smiths", Aaron of Solo's Hold and NerfWorXLab. The build quality of this hilt is truly second to none in the custom lightsaber community. CNC'd machined from a billet of 6061 series aluminum, this hilt is as durable as they come while also being as accurate as possible to the hilts wielded in the 2010 "Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II" promotional trailer.
Inside this saber, ingenuity of some of the brightest minds in the saber hobby comes together. Since this saber comes in a raw machined form from Solo's Hold, Shane McGraw of the NerfWorXLab team, finished the exterior of the hilt with a light polishing, real-world weathering, and a genuine leather wrap. Shane also equipped this saber with the latest and greatest saber tech in the market, the Crystal Focus 8 by Plector Labs. Supporting the electronics, is a 3D printed chassis and crystal reveal section by Rick Ryo of Goth3Designs. Rick is also a partner of the NerfWorXLab team. Inside the crystal reveal section is a handmade "Holocron" marble by Noah Drew, who hand makes these exquisite marbles to order.

Wow, that is a great deal. Wish I had $2k lying around, I really do.
The fact that you are struggling to sell that pretty much marks this as the end of an era in my mind. Seems like the glory days of the in hilt saber could be coming to an end with the new tech coming out.
That is as nice a saber as you will find anywhere though, I wish you luck with the sale.
Awesome deal for someone. If I didn't have the same parts, down to the Noah Drew Holocron crystal, at Obi-Shane's for install, I'd be all over this. Parts alone are more than the asking price. Good luck.
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**
