It's something that looks similar to Hadhafang but not called it since we don't have the license ^^;

Cool! You call it a fantasy saber. It looks just like a sword I saw once that was supposedly modeled after an Elven sword used in the Lord of the Rings. I think Legolas used it at some point, but I forget since I only know that because the guy at the counter told me. XD

This sword resembles the sword of Arwen (Aragorn's eleven sweetheart, daughter of Elron)only this one is (I assume) fully functional not a stainless steel wall hanger.This is one beautiful sword...if I were to have a "fantasy" sword this one would certainly fill the bill.

Yeah that's probably the one I was thinking of, and I honestly don't know if the sword I saw was a "wall hanger" or if it was actually functional, but I can say that it looked pretty legit. XD

If it has a stainless steel blade or billed as a movie replica it is not safe to use as a sword they are meant for display only- stainless steel is fine for knives but is too brittle to use as a sword although some are pretty stout most of them have a simple threaded rod welded to the blade and will fall apart if used to cut-very dangerous. There are companies that tout these things as battle ready and they are not. Swords should be made of high carbon tempered steel with a proper tang to be safe for cutting and reenacting

It's inspired by Arwen's Hadhafang in LotR. Can't use the name though or make an exact copy due to licensing rights though, hence some differences in design.

It looks suspiciously like Hadhafang, Arwen's sword.

I had the same thought. but still, the amount of skill required to make it is remarkable.

It looks like it was of elfin make! Great job! It's delicate, but certainly not weak.

This one was a commission, but something similar would typically run around $1400 to $1600 depending on materials and design requested. Have a limited edition run coming out sometime next year of a similar sword that's going to be priced at $1500, I think.

Worth every penny in my opinion...what type of steel do you use? Could this be made in L6 Bainite? This has the combined features of a sabre and a katana...when I saw in LOTR I was like hell yes!

We use a lot of different steels. 1084, 1095, 5160H, W2 a couple times in the past, different damascus/pattern-welded mixes. We can work L6 too, but we'd have to get a blade tested to have it certified as having bainite content.

From what I understand Bainite is very difficult to achieve on a regular basis. There have been some pattern welded Viking style swords displayed here on DA recently that are absolutely gorgeous...so awesome to see so many smiths turning out these beautiful edged pieces of art
