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.

LEGEND OF ZELDA Twilight Princess Link's Master Sword Replica

This is a prop replica of Link’s Master Sword from the Nintendo video game The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.

Many fans consider this to be the best replica of the Master Sword that is available.

Comes with a plaque for mounting on the wall.

Backstory:

The Master Sword has the power to ‘repel evil’, which enables it to overcome powerful dark magic, curses and so on. Evil people and beings cannot touch or wield the sword. No wielder of the Master Sword other than Link has ever been shown. The Master Sword is found at the Sacred Grove, in the ruins of the Temple of Time. It is used to purge the curse on Link, allowing him to return to his human form after he has been locked in his wolf form by Zant. After that, he has the ability to change between his two forms at will. It is later upgraded to hold the light of a Sol, the equivalent of a sun in the Twilight Realm, which glows with an evil-destroying aura which can break Shadow Crystals. It shines brightest in the Twilight Realm, where it can dissipate the fog that previously required Link to be in wolf form to navigate. In addition, the light-infused Master Sword has its power multiplied many times against creatures of twilight, slaying most if not all of them in a single blow.

Features:

  • Heavy stainless steel blade with engraved markings
  • Unsharpened
  • Metal guard with faux jewel
  • Rubberized handle
  • Comes with display plaque
  • Great for any Zelda fan
  • Measurements:
  • Blade: 27″
  • Handle: 5″
  • Overall: 38″
  • Weight: 3.5 Lbs
  • Manufaturer: ACE

The sword is generally priced around the $58 mark. You can get it brand new at both Ebay and Amazon:

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.

HALO 3 Covenant/Reach Titanium Color Energy Sword Replica

This is the 27″ Halo 3 Covenant Energy Sword (Type 1) prop replica.

It comes with a black wall plaque for easy display.

Note that the title is a bit misleading. This isn’t made from titanium, it’s made from 440 stainless steel blades that are heat treated to obtain a titanium like color. This treatment causes the color to shift when different angles of lighting are applied, which is very cool.

The ABS material handle has stunning detail, accurate design and size, and is pretty well built.

Normally you’d pay around $59.95 for this, but one seller on Ebay has a few items in stock brand new for only $49.95. It’s only a small saving but it’s still a bargain for a pretty nice prop replica display, so I say go for it at the link below:
