This is United Cutlery’s BladeFlex Kratos “Blade of Chaos” prop replica based on Sony’s video game God of War: Ascension.

Notable features:

  • Each sword has been hand-painted to replicate the intricate details seen on the in-game sword.

These are becoming hard to find (they are presently unavailable from a number of retailers). There are a couple available at the time of this post from the vendors below:

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:

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:

HALO 3 Covenant 27″ Titanium Color Type 1 Energy Sword Replica

Epic Weapons produced a limited run of their World of Warcraft Frostmourne sword prop replica. I don’t know exactly how many made it into that limited run, but the rumor is there are only 400 in the world. Either way, these are not that easy to find. At least, not normally.

Right now there are two BRAND NEW versions of these up for grabs on Ebay. The prices vary depending on whether or not the sword is in brand new condition, with the best of them advertised at the highest price:

All are the products of Epic Weapons’ high quality craftsmanship, the specifications of which are: 

  • Limited edition World of Warcraft sword
  • The sword measures approx. 47″ inches long and 12″ inches wide at the widest point of the handle.
  • The wall mount collector’s display plaque is 22″ inches tall, 12″ inches wide, and 3/4″ thick.
  • Weights 16 pounds (the sword alone)
  • The blade is made of 420J2 Japanese milled stainless steel (unsharpened, not for real use)
  • Other sword parts are made of cast metal
  • The handle is is gripped with genuine leather wrap and is embedded with an RFID (G2G authenticity microchip) which holds information needed to authenticate the sword is genuine Epic Weapons manufactured using a Game 2 Gear reader that comes with the sword. RFID’s last a lifetime.
  • Certificate of Authenticity (note, some of the sellers don’t have this!)

Here are the links you need to check out the three that are available (in best price order):

Limited Edition WORLD OF WARCRAFT Frostmourne Sword Prop Replica (Buy It Now via Ebay, $1,500)

If you find versions of these swords cheaper than this, I suggest being careful. There are replica knock-off’s floating around. I’ve also seen this sword advertised on Ebay as “new” when in fact it was used. The links above are the only two that seem to be legitimately new.

Windlass Studio’s fully functional bladed Assassins Creed Sword of Altair Replica is awesome, but what if you want more of a LARP style experience with your Sword of Altair?

That’s where Museum Replica’s Latex Sword of Altair Replica might be for you.

This is a fully licensed Assassins Creed replica based on the Sword of Altair seen in Assassin’s Creed I & II.

It features:

  • the iconic eagle-headed pommel with a winged crossguard
  • a brown suede wrapped, hard rubber handle
  • a full length of 38″
  • a blade length of 30-5⁄8″ 
  • a weight of 12 oz

Remember, this is not the high carbon steel version, it is a weapon made for LARP (Live Action Role Play) out of latex.

Now, you used to be able to get this via Sideshow Collectibles, but they’ve sold out. You can also currently find it on Ebay for a Buy It Now price of $96.99.

But the best price around at the moment is on Amazon where you can get it at the link below for $89.99:
