A folded steel HEWS with wood/leather scabbard. Wood handle with brass fittings. Pricey, but could be a quality product. I just thought I would share this as I have not seen a replica like this. The wood/leather scabbard looks very nice!

Wow... nice!

Everything the UC version should have been and wasn't, due to manufacturing constraints.

I note however, that the leaf wrapping on the handle looks painted on rather than actual metal or leather. :huh:

So does the "pommel" and err... "fuchi" for lack of a better term ("end caps" let's call 'em).

I don't know. It says that "elven rings/wrap" is brass, and end cap as well. The is supposedly painted wood. Hard to say, I guess. Someone needs to buy one, and give us all a proper review/opinion.

1-2-3, NOT IT! ;)

lol... not it either.

If it were true to what the movie version was supposed to be, then the handle would be wood, covered with leather, then wrapped with the brass leaf.

The UC version is all metal with simulated leather. This one appears to be wood with painted leaf (though they claim it is metal leaf.)

It's wood covered in authentic brass colored paint !

Definitely looks like a painted handle. The blade looks f'n wicked, though! Whatever. It is what it is.

Wouldn't trade UC's version for this one. It's closer in terms of functionality,
but UC's look better when displayed (better = closer to film prop).
