I have mastered artifice and synthweaving on my toons and can craft all artifact hilts up until lvl 53. I see people selling hilts and enhancements that are lvl 55. How do I unlock those crafts?

Currently, there are 2 levels of hilts at 55 that can be crafted:

Grade 30 hilts (Arkanian / Black Market)
Grade 31 hilts (Underworld / Verpine)

The only way to learn the schematic is to get one of these hilts and then reverse engineer it (you have a 20% chance to learn it). The hilt is destroyed in the process, so this can get aggravating (if you don't successfully learn it, that is).

If you run flashpoints and story mode operations, you can get Elite Commendations (purchases Black Market gear) and Arkanian gear drops from operations bosses. If you run hard mode operations, you can get Ultimate Commendations (purchases Verpine gear) and Underworld gear drops from operations bosses.

The Might Hilt 30 is the easiest to learn, as you can purchase the offhand hilt for Elite commendations for a chance to learn it.
