BLADE Daywalker Sword Prop Replica (United Cutlery)

United Cutlery’s officially licensed (from Marvel) prop replica of the Daywalker Sword from BLADE (as wielded by Wesley Snipes as Blade in the movie) is one of the most popular movie prop replica swords around.

It was designed by Factory X (who also supplied some of these for the filming of the sequel) directly from the actual studio sword by prop maker Tony Swatton. This is United Cutlery version which is identical to the Factory-X version (FX19991) except it has a false edge rather than a sharpened edge like the original (now sold out) Factory X replica.

The sword features:

  • Full tang construction
  • Blade Length: 27 1/8″ (overall Length: 35 3/8″)
  • Blade Thickness: 3/16″ 
  • Blade is mirror polished, 420 stainless steel with false edges. 
  • Handle is made from a powder-coated zinc alloy that is machine finished with authentic glyphs.
  • Comes with a black enamelled wooden display stand with a metal logo plate

CONSTANTINE Holy Shotgun Prop Replica (DC Direct)

As a long-time fan of the Hellblazer comic this hand- painted movie prop replica from CONSTANTINE is a weapon replica I definitely want.

Molded directly from a casting taken from the original mold produced for the stunt prop in the film, this is an accurate hand-painted life-sized movie replica of the Holy Shotgun used by Keanu Reeves in the film.

The shotgun is held in place by demon hands on a cold-cast porcelain base (note: the Shotgun is not removable from the base).

It’s a limited edition piece of only 500 worldwide and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Measures approximately 10″ high x10″ deep x23″ long and is packaged in an elegant black gift box with gold-foil stamping. 

I’ve seen this sell out at for between $275 and $350 around the traps, although finding it for sale now is almost impossible.

Not entirely impossible though, since I just found DC Comics have one on Amazon at a bargain price of only $199.94 (43% off!):

WHEEL OF TIME Heron Mark Sword (Windlass Steelcrafts)

If you’re a fan of Robert Jordan’s WHEEL OF TIME series, you’ll be very interested in acquiring this Heron Mark Sword prop replica based on the epic fantasy novel series.

This licensed replica comes from Windlass Steelcrafts, so like all their fantasy weapons it is sold as “Battle Ready”. This is a full tang sword (typically all swords by Windlass in this category are produced as “fully functional”).

In the series the Heron Mark swords are made by blending metals to make a blade that need never be sharpened and that can never be broken. Of course, that’s fiction remember. Though a 1065 carbon steel blade, by default this sword isn’t sharpened (but can be) and if used in full (or faux) battle it isn’t indestructible. So be careful!

In the books, the mark of the Heron is a sign that the sword was made by a blade master. Such swords are awarded only to he who has proven that he has the highest possible skill with a sword. This weapon replica, however, is not based on the Heron Mark Sword used by Tam in the series. In other words, it’s not THE Heron Mark Sword, despite being advertised as Rand al’Thor’s sword that burned the Heron Mark into his hands. That’s because it doesn’t have the Heron mark on the grip (only two on the blade). The grip, btw, is wood covered in a rich blue suede with wire wrap.

The guard and pommel are solid brass.

Includes a black leather scabbard with brass accents.

G.I. JOE: THE RISE OF COBRA Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes Katanas (United Cutlery)

These two Katanas based on weapons featured in G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra .

They both have some of the most stunning design I’m yet to see on a movie sword. 

With these particular pieces there is good news and bad news. They are definitely designed as collector’s show pieces; they are not full tang as this would be impossible with the Snake Eyes design. The blades, while being hand forged high damascus carbon steel with double fuller grooves, are also false edged.

However, the flip side to that is that where they set out to be display swords, they do so extremely well. Every detail is precisely replicated from the movie, and each sword comes with a wooden scabbard and display stand (as pictured above). They are also created with collectors in mind, with unique serial numbers and certificate of authenticity included.
