There are two types of Star Wars fans in the world: Those who know Boba Fett is the greatest character, and those who are wrong.

Only those in the know will recognize the feared bounty hunter’s signature symbol. The hand-carved slate absorbs moisture and prevents the coaster from clinging to the bottom of the glass. $33 on Etsy.
