THE WALKING DEAD Fully Functional Live-Blade Replica of Michonnes Katana

Master Cutlery’s high carbon steel prop replica of Michonne’s katana from The Walking Dead is pretty sweet but it’s not a touch on this replica.

This version is a hand-forged, fully functioning replica of her iconic sword.

The blade is Damascus steel forged to 1060 steel (folded forged 13 times / 8000 layers). It is also hand sharpened using over 12 steps (different grade grind stones) to the point where it is fully capable of cutting through thick bamboo.

The color is also produced with a special oxidation process which is solid and won’t peel off even with use.

The guard is made of copper.

The handle is wood covered in a real shark skin wrap. The shark skin is then wrapped silk wrap.

The scabbard is wood and leather.

Note: The stand in the images doesn’t come with the sword (as if Michonne carries around a stand!).

At a price of only $192.75 (price may change but that’s the price as I write this), this is an absolute bargain for such a high quality collectible.

This is seriously one of if not the best replica of Michonne’s The Walking Dead sword as seen on TV.

Jon Snow’s Longclaw Sword isn’t the only cool sword replica from HBO’s GAME OF THRONES. Also officially licensed from the series and based on George RR Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” is this high carbon steel Needle Sword of Arya Stark Prop Replica.

It comes with a Certificate of Authenticity personally autographed by George R.R. Martin and is also a Limited Edition sword replica of only 2,500 pieces worldwide.

Each blade is laser serialized with the Limited Edition number.

Here’s the background on the sword:

Before setting off for The Wall, Jon Snow, Arya Stark’s bastard half brother, gifted her a sword. After noticing Arya’s enthusiasm for sword play Jon had Mikken, whose mark adorns the blade, create a sword specifically to suit Arya’s physique. Lighter, thinner, and smaller than a typical Westeros blade, the style was closer to that of Braavos across the Narrow Sea, to be used for thusting and slashing, style of combat more suited to the quick and agile, rather than those with raw strength. Jon christened the sword Needle, in homage to Arya’s least favorite hobby of needlework. After arriving in King’s Landing, Arya’s father, Eddard Stark, then the King’s Hand, hired Syrio Forel, a Braavosi waterdancer, to teach Arya how to use her new blade. Syrio taught her that and more, preparing her for what was to come later. When Arya would return from practice sweaty and sore, and Septa Mordane would ask where she had been, Arya could truthfully say she had been doing “Needlework” all along.

Sword Details Blade: ~24″ (~30″ overall) high carbon steel, full tang.

Hilt: Cast metal with antique nickel plate. Genuine leather wrap.

Plaque: Silkscreened fiber board. Includes mounting hardware.

United Cutlery’s officially licensed (from Marvel) prop replica of the Daywalker Sword from BLADE (as wielded by Wesley Snipes as Blade in the movie) is one of the most popular movie prop replica swords around.

It was designed by Factory X (who also supplied some of these for the filming of the sequel) directly from the actual studio sword by prop maker Tony Swatton. This is United Cutlery version which is identical to the Factory-X version (FX19991) except it has a false edge rather than a sharpened edge like the original (now sold out) Factory X replica.

The sword features:

  • Full tang construction
  • Blade Length: 27 1/8″ (overall Length: 35 3/8″)
  • Blade Thickness: 3/16″ 
  • Blade is mirror polished, 420 stainless steel with false edges. 
  • Handle is made from a powder-coated zinc alloy that is machine finished with authentic glyphs.
  • Comes with a black enamelled wooden display stand with a metal logo plate

If you’re a fan of Robert Jordan’s WHEEL OF TIME series, and I most definitely am (having had the fortune of being able to sit down and talk with Robert about his series in person), you’ll be very interested in acquiring this piece of reality based on the epic fantasy novel series. 

This licensed replica comes from Windlass Steelcrafts, so like all their fantasy weapons it is sold as “Battle Ready”. I can’t find anywhere that specifically states this is a full tang sword, though typically all swords by Windlass in this category are produced that way (Windlass advertise all of them as “fully functional”). 

In the series the Heron Mark swords are made by blending metals to make a blade that need never be sharpened and that can never be broken. Of course, that’s fiction remember. Though a 1065 carbon steel blade, by default this sword isn’t sharpened (but can be) and if used in full (or faux) battle it isn’t indestructible (some fans report it doesn’t feel like it could cut it…forgive the pun). So be careful!

In the books, the mark of the Heron is a sign that the sword was made by a blade master. Such swords are awarded only to he who has proven that he has the highest possible skill with a sword. This weapon replica, however, is not based on the Heron Mark Sword used by Tam in the series. In other words, it’s not THE Heron Mark Sword, despite being advertised as Rand al’Thor’s sword that burned the Heron Mark into his hands. That’s because it doesn’t have the Heron mark on the grip (only two on the blade). The grip, btw, is wood covered in a rich blue suede with wire wrap.

The guard and pommel are solid brass.

Includes a black leather scabbard with brass accents.

WHEEL OF TIME Heron Mark Sword (on Ebay) $275

WHEEL OF TIME Heron Mark Sword (On Amazon) $229.95.

Note: A common complaint with this sword is that it has a “Windlass India” stamp on the blade below one of the Heron Marks. I’m sure that’s not one of Robert Jordan’s fantasy ideas!
