Ginton Forge Crysknife

Have you seen these? I'm currently looking at my finances to see if I can't order one. There's only 15 at the moment.

I'm also tempted to buy one, but $389 is a little rich for me.

It looks great but the price is also bit too high for me.

I am pretty sure my insurance isn't covering it.

Updated price on these. Lower but still a tad expensive.

200 bucks for the sheath, that can't be right.

No, I can see that. The knife is done in a single mould whereas the sheath would take two and need assembly. Then it has to fit the knife. Probably more work to make the sheath than the knife.

Well I wouldn't pay $200 for a worm sheath, and is it canon anyway. :) The sheath that is.

Anyway I'm sure a Fermen would rather I have this WTSHTF, yes I have a grab bag.

much cheaper than the steel forged lightsabers I saw at the ren faire, which started at $8,000. They did look damn amazing though.
