ever since i saw that movie i wanted this sword.. it was an idealized mix of 2 nations, and it is a beautiful sword. i did a alot of searching and searching for the original but nadda. so i decided to take matters into my own hand. i started scultping it myself but realized early that my talents were lacking for this particular cause so i sought out a good friend who took the job. I have been producing Jose De Braga's swords for a while and he was very interested in taking on this sword. we went back and forth with drawings until we agreed on this one. of course its not screen perfect but i think it is a great representation of it... we drew it up with conans atlantean sword sizes in mind, not huge but still very useable. i have David blue of savage swords doing the blade, hes going to etch the runes on it..
anyway heres the start of one of the cooles things ive been apart of...
the guard and pommell will be bronze but i am not sure on the handle.. maybe a mother of pearl resin... any ideas?

Good start. That excalibur reminds me of Conan's sword. I've always favored Sean Connery's excalibur from First Knight. But I'll be following along to see your progress on this one.

i could do it the same way i do the kurgan helmets.. bronze powder... it would look like metal parts but be suuuper light...
the film sword was a one piece deal.. maybe fiberglass or rubber..

Impressive recreation of Owen's Excalibur. Will keep and eye on this thread to see how it turns out.

I also really enjoyed the movie for its (novel for the cinema) Romano-British take on the Arthur story. Similar in some way to Bernard Cornwell's Warlord Chronicles.

I wish there were a way to create these in resin or something similar to make just wall-hangers.

Absolutely gorgeous work.

Lapis Lazuli sphere for the pommel would be pretty awesome.

Dude, that's amazing engraving work. Can't wait to see how this one turns out!
