This is something of a pre-interest thread, not quite ready to offer a thing at this point. But I understand if it need be moved to the Yard.
I've been discussing prop swords that have gone unmade(or made BADLY) with my teacher, and his interest is peaked. Mainly I mentioned Westley's sword from Princess Bride.
"Yeah I can make that."
Music to my ears. I went on about retail prices for stainless steel bastardizations of excellent movie blades, and he asked me to acertain what people were after. Here's the idea:
Swords with excellent fittings and proper 70/30 aluminum blades EXACTLY as used in the applicable films. Now I have a list to start off of a few that got dissed by the replicas industry:
[COLOR=red]Kill Bill sword-NO stainless and the proper fittings[/COLOR]
[COLOR=red]Sword of the Man in Black[/COLOR]
[COLOR=red]Lancelot sword-First Knight[/COLOR]
Note: As I have mentioned, my teacher is the man responsible for the POTC swords, Last Samurai swords, Secondhand Lions weapons, Blade spikes(B1), some blades in Hidalgo, and various crafts thoughout 20 years. An excellent sword maker that can create more accurate replica swords than a retailer even attempts. You'll not see better or lighter pieces.
Now it's up to you: what blades in exact detail from films would you collect?
