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.

Sword of William Wallace from BRAVEHEART

BRAVEHEART is one of my favorite movies, together with the awesome soundtrack by the legendary James Horner.

Also extremely cool from the film is this officially licensed Braveheart prop replica line by Museum Replica’s.

Produced by Windlass Steelcrafts, the Sword of William Wallace was created with Simon Atherton – the master armorer from the original film production.

This replica broadsword is hand forged in high carbon steel, is fully tempered AND has a full tang.  It’s reproduced in perfect detail to the famous sword carried by Mel Gibson with the sole exception that it comes unsharpened..

The authentic materials extend to the custom wood grip and oil tanned leather wrap.

Includes full color wood display plaque, certificate of authenticity and even the exact custom made, wool tartan strip tied to the handle as seen in the film.

This famous and exacting replica will set you back $324.99.
