I bought a re-enactment sword ages ago from Blades-uk and I am well pleased with it! cheesy

Also I have had the pleasure of going to the warehouse (while delivering Spikie there after one of our weekends of drunken debauchery and depravity! Wink) and meeting Loz who is a very nice chap! cheesy

He let me look at all the LotR weapons and other merchandise and I was really amazed at the quality of it. Previously I had only seen swords on Uniquities stall at Collectormania and then I had thought they felt really flimsy and was quite disappointed to the point of not wanting to buy them any more. But when I saw and felt the quality of the ones at Blades-uk I was very pleasantly surprised and I will definitely be ordering as many swords as I can afford from them! cheesy

[color=darkgoldenrod]I recently bought one of the miniature collectible swords (Anduril, as it happens!) and I think it's fantastic! cheesy  It's really good quality and very well made and finely detailed for a miniature.  It has the full Elvish inscription on both sides of the blade and even the tiniest Elvish writing ever on the hilt.  It's a perfect replica and was well worth buying.  I want more!!!!!

My parents just bought me a sword from Blades-uk as a present for my birthday next week. Tis a strange present I know, but I've always wanted a sword and it helps that my mum is into weapons and stuff Tongue.
I chose to get The Luciendar sword of Light and I'm really happy with it, accept for the fact I have to hide it from my mum Roll Eyes cheesy. It does say that it's blemished but so far I haven't found a fault on it, though I'm not a expert on swords so I wouldn't know Roll Eyes...But I still need to find a place to put it Undecided

a LOTRUK original

My favourite LOTR weapon at the moment is the Witch King's sword- after actually using the thing at the meet, I've concluded that I really like it's balance and I can use it fairly easily.....the sword I most want though is Haldir's Elven blade, I saw it at the exhibition meet and it had a longer handle than Hadhafang to the point where I could actually use it with one OR two hands comfortably, rather than just the one with Arwen's sword.

I have to agree there. I love the Witchkings sword, its such an evil looking blade.
I have this blade myself, and its my fav one. I like the fact that its almost as tall as I am, but I also like the fact that I can hold it comfortably as well... Woe betide any intruders in MY flat...Lol.

I have to admit though, on seeing Sting at the Sherwood meet, and Narsil, they look wonderful. I will be getting them for my collection as soon as I have spare cash!

I have just been given the Sword of the Witch King by all my lurvely ikkle pals at the Sherwood Meet and I want to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who chipped in! cheesy

The sword is most wonderful and I am really pleased with it. It is very well-made and feels really substantial and solid, unlike some replicas you get from other companies. It is inscribed on the blade near the hilt with "Lord of the Rings Fellowship of the Ring" which I think is cool and it comes with a beautiful mahogany and gold plaque to hang it on.

Having had the pleasure of selling some of Blades-uk's merchandise I would happily reccomend buying any one of the Lord of the Rings swords and weapons as the quality is outstanding.

Is that ok Spikie?? Do I get paid now??!! Tongue

LOL

Thanks for the great reviews guyz!!

It's good to know you all like the witch king sword so much, In my personal opinion it is the most under rated sword out of all of them!!

The design and quality is out standing!!! I just wish I has enough money to buy one!!!  << for myself that is >>

Ooh Egde, If they make Haldirs Elven blade, well,  **drool, HALDIR!!!!!** Then I'm def gonna get that one!!!

[size=0.5]El, you got a Celtic sword too, hint, hint[/size]

Me and MY Andruil!!!  It arrived this morning cheesy cheesy cheesy

I spent all the Festival telling Spikie it was mine, and trying to run away with it.... and now finally he's relented and let me have it  (awwww huge *hugs* to Spikie!)

Its absolutely beautiful!!  Leather Hilt, very tall, beautiful rhunes of Eregion down the length of it .... and its SO heavy and SO long!  Have to be careful holding it up in the house!!!

You know you really dont appreciate how authentic these swords are until you get your hands on one!  How on earth Aragorn held it outstretched with one hand, for as long as he did I really dont know!!! Shocked

AND... its great for swiping weeds with too Wink Wink

(p.s if anyone has any pics of anyone who held "my" sword at the Festival, Id love to have a copy (URL) Im going to build a page in devotion to "my" sword!!!  Even Gino from Weta Workshop held it cheesy cheesy)
