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.

The Dark Knight Mini Mine Bat Bomb Prop Replica

Here’s a life-size replica of the mini-mine (aka the “Bat Bomb”) as featured in Christopher Nolan’s Batman Begins.

This is a replica of the coolest bat bomb to be featured on screen. There was a version in Batman and Robin but they were not nearly as compact and nicely designed as the Batman Begins version (which got ranked 12th in Complex’s Top 50 Coolest Batman Gadgets).

Replica details:

  • Mini-mine (safe)
  • Cast in pewter alloy, air-spray matte black (Ø380mm)
  • Red transparent dome (2mm), 13 individual magnets (2*5mm)
  • Black glossy acrylic stand (145*97*4.8mm), metal printed plaque (135*87*0.8mm)

Here’s an image of the weapon in the film Batman Begins:

BATMAN BEGINS Bat Bomb

 

The only drawback with this item is that the magnets need to be glued on and you have to do it yourself. Nothing a cheap tube of superglue and 15 minutes of your time won’t resolve.

Price to buy one of these replicas is $75. Find it at the link below:
