A glance at any images from the Hobbit movie gives an idea of the incredible array of weapons that will be employed in the films. In most shots, the dwarves are bristling with axes, hammers, spears, mattocks, maces, and swords, as well as the odd spoon and slingshot. If you’re fan of Lord of the Rings Trilogy and The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, you’ll be delighted with Weta Workshop’s latest product – replica of the Orcrist ‘goblin cleaver’ of Thorin Oakenshield. Yes, it’ll cost you a lot of money – $9,900, but at least you’ll own an item that is truly as close to what was used in the film as possible. When you place your order you can also get the amazing scabbard that Thorin wore in the movie.
Peter Lyon, Master Swordsmith, who helped create the amazing weapons you saw used in The Hobbit, has created the Orcrist, his fifth sword created for Weta giving fans a chance to bring piece of Middle-earth home to their collections.
Part of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey by Master Swordsmith Peter Lyon, this legendary (replica) crafted Elvish born sword is an outstanding blend of steel with a dragon’s tooth resin handle molded to look like wood. The first single edged blade in The Master Swordsmith’s Collection, it joins the previous swords in the series: Andúril, Strider’s Sword, Glamdring and the most recently launched sword, Sting – still available to order!
