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.

LORD OF THE RINGS Arwen's Hadhafang Sword Replica (United Cutlery)

This is United Cutlery’s replica of Arwen’s Hadhafang sword from Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings.

“Hadhafang” means Throng-cleaver.

Backstory:

Hadhafang once belonged to the Elven princess Idril, who wed a mortal man and bore Earendil, the father of Elrond who in turn was father to Arwen. Before Arwen’s birth Elrond wielded Hadhafang at the end of the second age of Middle-Earth, during the Last Alliance of Elves and Men in the great battle against Sauron. Later his daughter Arwen used Hadhafang when she aided Frodo in his escape from the Ringwraiths. Inscribed on the blade are runes in the Elven language of Sindarin that say “aen estar Hadhafang i chathol hen, thand arod dan i thang an i arwen” which translates to “this blade is called Hadhafang, a noble defense against the enemy throng for a noble lady.” The original inscription included the last line “Idril i hel en aran Gond dolen,” which translates to “Idril, daughter of the king of the Hidden Rock (Gondolin).” It was dropped from the finished movie prop due to a lack of space. There is an intentional pun in the inscription – the Sindarin translation of “noble lady” is “arwen”, so in effect, the blade claims to be for Arwen, even though it was made for her grandmother.

KINGDOM OF HEAVEN Sword of Reynald Prop Replica (Museum Replicas)

This is Museum Replica’s reproduction of the one handed sword wielded by Reynald de Chatillon (played by Brendan Gleeson) in Ridley Scott’s 2005 epic adventure film Kingdom of Heaven.

One of four Kingdom of Heaven swords that were licensed by Museum Replicas, this is rare and hard to find fully tempered, high carbon steel bladed sword replica.

Measures 40 1/4″ overall and features a grooved hardwood handle with highly detailed pommel and antique brass finish straight crossguard.

Comes with a matching wall plaque and certificate of authenticity, although in this case the seller has noted that the COA has a bend in it. Still, you can’t get these anywhere anymore so that’s just a tiny issue.

I notice that this sword was previously listed on Ebay for $320, but it passed in at that price. The seller has now dropped the price to a starting bid of $250 and a Buy it Now of $275, so you’ll get it at least $50 cheaper than it was previously listed. That’s a bargain since this is a pretty rare collector’s piece that is hard to find.
