Years ago we sold the authentic swords and gear from the Lord of the Rings movies, but now, the first of three Hobbit movies is in theaters! We have some great items available. We have Bilbo’s sword STING and the Sting scabbard as well as several other items. See them at www.knifecenter.com. They’re great!
A Kwaiken is very simplistic Japanese style short sword with a slim, slender profile which can be easily concealed. Carried by both the samurai men and women, it was preferred when either a Katana or Wakizashi was too large or impractical to use. The Boker Plus Kwaiken is a folding interpretation of this knife designed by Lucas Burnley out of New Mexico. It features the classic Kwaiken blade shape, sleek Micarta scales, a tight pocket clip, and a very attractive stonewashed finish. The thumb disk is very difficult to actuate right out of the box but with everything in life, just a little practice and thumb pressure to the right area finds this knife flying open extremely fast. This is due to the IKBS bearing system found on a couple CRKT knives which, for the money, is the smoothest opening system on the market. This knife may not be for everyone but it is a very well constructed tactical design with all the elegance typical of Boker designs. Check this knife out at www.knifecenter.com.

The Dadao is a Chinese military edged weapon from the pre-WWII era. It was used by the Chinese to defend themselves during the Japanese invasion. In fact, the Dadao is credited with holding it’s own against the Katana in a battle at The Great Wall! These authentic reproductions are made by the skilled craftsmen at the Hanwei Forge in China. This is not just art for your wall, either, this sword is built to handle heavy-duty cutting.

It has gotten to the point where the only place a man can be swashbuckling is in his own backyard. The clever folks at Condor took their experience making all sorts of machetes, and applied it to a short sword. Now you don’t have to destroy that prized saber when there is Kudzu to hack or bamboo to beat back. The Condor Cutlass is black coated carbon steel with a plastic handle, to keep the cost down and functionality up. Oh yeah… and it is ridiculously fun to use!
