Crazy About Lord of the Rings

Lord of the Rings is a film series based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s epic fantasy novels. The first in the series was released in 2001, and of course, it took the world by storm. Never before had an audience been transported so successfully into a vast world of fantasy. A world of elves and hobbits, where the culture of each character was so intricate and full-fledged, it was difficult to believe they weren’t real.

It’s this exacting attention to detail that made both the books and the movies so popular. It’s almost as if Tolkien was simply relating his former travels to us, describing, rather than creating these people. I fell deeply in love with all the characters, and was moved by both the good guys and the bad guys. Those Orcs were scary and really gross, it was hard to even look at them! Which is the mark of a well-made villain, if you ask me. While the good guys were pristine, innocent, full of kindness and generosity.

It’s easy to like a story that so clearly defines the boundaries between good and evil. It leaves you feeling like there’s justice in the world, like the good guys will always win, even if it seems impossible. It’s a comforting idea, albeit kind of unrealistic. I can see how audiences flock to it even today, decades after the book was first released.

The world Tolkien created seems so real, it’s hard to resist trying to recreate it at home. Well, now you don’t have to. Bring the fantasy to life with tons of LOTR gear! Heavenly Swords has your back, my friend!

Sword of the Witch King Lord of the Ring


Now this is impressive. This sword is an exact movie replica of the sword carried by the Witch-King, the leader of the nine Ringwraiths who were the chief servants of the Dark Lord, Sauron. It comes with its own certificate of authenticity and silk screened display plaque. It is a massive 54” long, and will leave anyone who visits your house feeling super jealous.

LOTR Orc Blade Fantasy Sword


Now you can own the weapon wielded by some of Middle Earth’s creepiest creatures. They are described as man-shaped, roughly man-sized, ugly and filthy, and are only able to destroy, not to create. Orcs are cannibalistic creatures that seem to feel no pain in battle. Not to mention they are some of the most memorable evil characters in all of literature. This sword is made of stainless steel with a wooden handle and display stand. It measures roughly 36”.

Glowing Sting Sword


Possibly the most impressive movie replica ever, this sword actually glows! It is fully licensed and authorized by New Line Cinema. It is cast from the same molds used for the original film’s prop. The handle’s sliding switch selects three different modes: “OFF,” “ON,” and “ORC.” The “ON” position will make Glowing Sting simulate the sounds of war when struck against other objects. “ORC” mode activates an audible hum and the signature blue glow that announces the proximity of orcs.

 

 

Uruk-Hai Scimitar from Lord of the Rings

Written by English philologist, J. R. R. Tolkien, the Lord of the Rings is an epic high fantasy novel. In these novels a terrifying sort of creature known as the Uruk-Hai are known to exist under the rule of a very evil villain.

This race was created by Saruman the White in attempt to bring about an even greater breed of Orc in both strength and resistance to sunlight in order to destroy the freedom-loving people of Rohan. It is said that they resulted in the breeding of Orcs and men. The Uruk, in a force of 10,000, were defeated at Helm’s Deep by the March of the Ents.

Similar to its wielders, the Uruk-Hai Scimitar is not exactly shiny and handsome. These creatures, Uruk-Hai, who carry these deadly weapons are terribly hideous and treacherously strong.

The sword we offer here at Heavenly Swords is the official sword from the movie, made by United Cutlery. It includes a parchment certificate of authenticity and a display plaque with the symbol of Saruman. This is a must have for any LOTR collection.

Gimli’s Battle Axe

Battle Axe of Gimli“ width=Gimli, of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, a noble dwarf of the Longbeards and son of Gloin, was of the most important kind of dwarves. A true hero and friend to the elves, Gimli is known to be both dauntless and loyal. Gimli was a skilled fighter who befriended Frodo Baggins. They joined together, amongst others, on the quests to the Lonely Mountain and also to destroy the One Ring.

Battle Axe is the primary weapon of Dwarves. Its shape and appearance identified that Gimli is a member of a particular tribe. Gimli’s Battle Axe was retrieved by him at the Mines of Moria. It was once owned by the Dwarf-lord. This two-handed axe was his pride and joy, (as well his beard).

Gimli’s matchless axe was created for two-handed combat, making it easy to rapidly swing in either direction. This has enabled him to ferociously slice through the flesh of many orcs, trolls, goblins, and wargs. He also carries his Walking Axe, Bearded axe, and two Throwing Axes.

Lord of the Rings Sting Sword with Scabbard

Sting Sword with ScabbardFrom Peter Jackson’s ever popular Lord of the Rings trilogy, the Sting Sword came about. It was made in Gondolin after the first age. This sword was first given to Frodo by Bilbo before the Fellowship set from Rivendell. Frodo later handed it down to Sam.

The Sting Sword with Scabbard has runes etched into the blade that are said to be in Sindarin, the Elven language. The words displayed are: “Maegnas aen estar nin dagnir in yngyl im,” meaning, “Sting is my name – I am the spider’s bane.” Its name didn’t come about until after Bilbo had used this elvish short sword to fight off giant spiders in Mirkwood by “stinging” them. This weapon is made unique when orcs are near as it glows blue!

It is double edged with a leaf shaped blade and is extremely well balanced. It is great for Lord of the Rings fans, fantasy sword collectors, or even for a stage prop!

Specifications:

  • Overall Length: 25 3/4″
  • Blade Length: 21 7/8″
  • Includes Hard Scabbard!
