If you want a sword, you probably want a sword that can actually cut, right? I’ve never gotten the appeal of non-firing replica guns, and I similarly don’t understand the draw of ‘display’ swords like this one. I understand that not everybody can afford a folded-steel Japanese katana or hand-forged Viking longsword, but hanging a mystery-metal replica on your wall is kind of like parking a paper-mache Ferrari in your garage.
But if you feel differently, and if you’ve got the
garage wall space, this replica ‘Orcrist’ might be your cup of tea.
This fellow doesn’t sound particularly well-versed in the Tolkien cannon, and he probably couldn’t even tell you how many Elvish kings ruled the city of Gondolin before its fall. You or I wouldn’t care about that, but this could be a big turn-off to the legion of Lord Of The Rings fans who might appreciate an item like this hanging over their fireplace.
