Surprisingly Good Quality 24 Feb. 2013
By Kris B. - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
i've never purchased a United Cutlery "Lord of the Rings" or "The Hobbit" sword before and didn't know what to expect. overall, i found the quality to be exceptional. this is a very large sword, that feels like the real weapon that it is. the weight is a bit shocking. very substantial. balance feels good as well. the grip and the hand guard are both very solid and firm. the "Hobbit" engraving is very subtle and unobtrusive. in fact, i like it as it further distinguishes this item from the cheap knock-offs on the market. Only two negatives. the external packaging looks cheesy and cheap, although the item inside is well protected for shipping. finally the "dragon's tooth" handle is not convincing. its clearly resin as opposed to bone. yes, not going to find a dragon any time soon, but you'd think there's enough faux antler material out there to do a better job here. that said, all in all i find the item to be incredibly impressive. a very satisfying purchase. hope that's helpful.

Pre Order Review 23 Jan. 2013
By BennyB123 - Published on Amazon.com
1st off I hope this review is helpful for anyone getting ready to pre order this sword. There are a couple of questions that I would like to answer
Q. #1 When will the sword be ready for release?
A. Zoom in on the bottom left hand side of the picture. The approximate date the item will be available is February 1st 2013. With many people pre ordering the item there is a good chance you will get the item late February if you pre order it.

My sword finally arrived and I love it! Definitely worth it for me. I ended up having to get mine on eBay for $189 (free shipping) because I couldn't wait. I say that price as a reference because now you can find them on Amazon for even less than that. Get it, You wont regret it. I was going to stop buying swords after this, but once it came I am now buying "Sting" to complete the collection because I love this one so much. If you're starting a collection, or you only plan on getting one sword from Lord of the Rings/Hobbit, I recommend getting this one. It's the coolest one available in my opinion! NOW YOU DON'T HAVE TO WAIT!

Q. #2 (for anyone who has never purchased a united cutlery brand LOTR or Hobbit sword) Is the marking that says "The Hobbit" conspicuous?
A. I just recently purchased the Glamdring sword that Gandalf uses in the movie and I had this question. I was worried that the movie logo would be engraved and thus cheapen the sword. The writing that says "The Hobbit" is not engraved but seems to be stained on. It is small enough as to be hardly noticeable and thus not very conspicuous. It is not that big of a concern in my opinion. If you really wanted to I'm sure you could buff it off which is what I was going to do originally, but decided that to just leave it how it is.


Q. #3 How is the quality of the sword?
A. Strictly comparing it to my other United Cutlery Glamdring sword that I have. The quality of United Cutlery swords are amazing. I will continue to only buy their replicas as they pay strict attention to detail. The weight is very realistic and life like and is to scale with the original. The blade is dull for safety reasons so you can run your finger or hand up and down the blade without cutting yourself. It does have a sharp point however so it looks identical to the real thing. United Cutlery compared their work to the original swords that were made for the movie in New Zealand. If you are looking for the most realistic replica, buy from United Cutlery!

A beautiful thing.... 16 Nov. 2013
By JourneyOn - Published on Amazon.com

This is my first replica sword - not a sword/knife collector but Hobbit movie/Thorin fan and been looking at this sword for months - finally bought it by way of celebrating, as it were, the upcoming release of the movie "The Desolation of Smaug" - to decorate with, and just to have it. Sword just came today and DELIGHTED - because while I may not know custom knives and steel and swords, I do some jewelry work, and I'm detail-fussy AND frown on "plastic" anything.

So, overall impressions - 1. Very neat assembly and finishing. True, it doesn't have sharp edge, but has a nicely angled beveled edge (which as far as I am concerned is movie-correct, as I've read in making the Hobbit movies both edged and non-edged weapons were used, for safety reasons). Looks like it could be re-edged by someone who knows what they are doing, but I'm good with it. Does not have a cheap, sharp-edged "production" look (as some cheap jewelry, cookware, and knives do). Grip seems firmly set.

2. Very happy with embossed/raised details and antiquing - and while normally I frown on "plastic" in this case IMO the resin "dragon tooth" grip to me has a "good feel" to it, not overly brittle, very nice coloration (and in any case w/o being paranoid there have been professional articles about bone products carrying diseases - enough to make me think, anyway. So I'm OK with not having a genuine bone handle.) Beautiful job, really, and feels good in hand. All the 4 little jewels a the end of the pommel were there along w. nice detail. Re the "Hobbit movie" blade stamping - only on one side up by the hilt - for me it's so subtle and small it's a non-issue, and if it is ever seen think it will add interest to visitors who see it.

3. Whoah - it's heavy - at least to me. I'm not particularly weak (build modular brick walls, use tools, and all that) but a few experimental, sloppy swings tired my small hands and wrists in like, 2 minutes. It's like swinging rebar around, IMO. And with the weight and nice sharp point suppose you could use it as a weapon if you had to - tho it's a REPLICA and someone already mentioned this is not a sword where the metal goes through the handle, so it COULD break if abused, I guess. But feels solid and well-made - what can I say, for a replica it just feels good to hold. Particularly like the hefty feel of guard and blade, and Orcrist has such graceful lines.

4. Steel quality - of course I had to look this up, being fussy. So this is made of AUS-6 stainless, and I found this info "AUS-6 is a entry level Japanese cutlery steel in the same class as 440A......AUS-6 is typically hardened to RC 55-58 or so, and take a very fine edge, though edge retention is not as good as steel such as 440C." "440A is one of the workhorses of the Sports and Tactical Knife industry. The majority of entry level knives use either 440A, 420HC or AUS-6 steel. 440 is a medium carbon, martensitic stainless steel that is very corrosion resistant and extremely tough that can be hardened to about RC58.

While not considered a premium knife steel, 440A still has some very good properties for cutlery use. It takes a very fine edge and will easily pop the hairs off your arm if heat treated properly, and is more corrosion resistant and tougher than 440B or 440C." (from Custom Tacticals online).

So I read all this as a good, basic, steel quality, well suited for a good replica at an affordable price point, e.g. it's not junk! but made of a "workhorse" type steel (and I DO want to know stuff like that, it makes me feel better. This sword isn't THAT cheap in cost! and there's a lot of junk memorabilia around - overpriced just because of the name on it).

5. Nice hanging plaque and very much appreciate having the hanging hardware with drywall mounts included - and the very nice certificate with the map on the back. Plus well-packaged, NO PEANUTS!! and incredible fast shipping.

Summary: I'm fascinated with my new "toy" and having Orcrist - well, a solid version of it anyway - in my hands. Will probably spend time lovingly mounting (next to Hobbit posters) and polishing with jeweler's cloth. Definitely a worthy piece of memorabilia that of course I don't NEED, but am so happy to have and NO regrets on this purchase at all. Thank you, UC, for a solid, well-made (not junk) replica that is worthy of having and displaying. And I'd buy from UC again - for what it is and this price point, 5 stars for me.

(BTW, personally would not use this for battle, seems strong but think you would have to go into stuff specifically made for re-enactments, tho I guess you could carry this around for a costume where allowed. Hopefully I can get the scabbard, one day, but will display beautifully without it).

Beautiful! 28 Jan. 2014
By Lindsay S. Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This piece is just stunning. The weight of the blade alone speaks volumes. Every detail is perfectly rendered, from the elvish designs on the blade and guard, to the dragon tooth that makes the grip, to the seal of the Elven King Ecthelion on the pommel, you will NOT be disappointed. And the price? Definitely a good deal! My only problem is deciding where to hang it!!! If you decide to swing it around in childish delight like I did when you first receive it, make sure there's nothing around you... my oregano plant wasn't as thrilled with this purchase as I was...
