Why ??? Do you looking for one too?
I wasn't until I realized that someone actually had these kicking around for sale without the swords to go with them.

I have always wanted to display Hadhafang on the wall rather than on its horizontal stand. In my current home, I had the sword above the fireplace mantelpiece, which was a very good spot for it. When I move though, I want to mount it on a wall along with my other swords. I'm thinking of converting the UC stand into a wall plaque, but I figured my job could be made easier if I had access to the Noble plaque.

Alas.

Wow, $40 for those is quite a steal! I must say that the NC plaques are really nice. I'd go for a Hadhafang one too but I don't really like the blue background. I think it would be easier to convert the UC one than to refinish the NC one, but we shall see...one day when I finally get that sword.

Are the NC swords any good? I wasn't aware that they had made so many! I've only ever seen Anduril, Hadhafang, Sting, and the Battle Axe.

Despite claims that they were made in Toledo, Spain, some folks reported that they are actually somewhat inferior to UC's work. Most importantly though, is the fact that they have more innacuracies when compared to the original props.

I.M.O The most beautiful swords ever made are the swords from Weta but they are fully handcrafted which they are way to much for my budget.
Second best are the swords of United Cutlery and as for the wallplaque's i like the ones of Noble Collection most.

The swords coming out of Toledo the last couple of years haven't been what the used to be. Perhaps it's the down turn in the economy over there. Many of the better artisans may have left the scene. Ten years ago they produced some great stuff. Now, not so much.
