"Wanna buy some Rancor nail blades?"
"Not today, friend."
―Elan Sel'Sabagno, attempting to sell Rancor nail blades to Jango Fett[src]

Rancor nail blades were an edged weapon crafted from the nails of rancors,[1] carnivorous creatures which grew to be 5–19 meters tall on average.[2] In 22 BBY,[3] the Balosar Elan Sel'Sabagno was selling Rancor nail blades at the Outlander Club on Coruscant,[1] the capital planet of the Galactic Republic.[4] Shortly before an assassination attempt on Senator Padmé Amidala of the Republic was made that year, the dealer attempted to sell the blades to the bounty hunter Jango Fett, but the Human declined Sel'Sabagno's offer.[1]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

Rancor nail blades were first mentioned in the Star Wars Legends young-readers book Jango Fett: Bounty Hunter, which was written by Eric Arnold and published by Random House in 2002. The blades are mentioned in the book's third chapter, which is titled "Partners."[1]
