I think you misunderstand. He didn't "find" anything and the hero Sword of Kahless certainly isn't going to be sold by the studio. Propworx has merely been working with the studio on cataloging their Star Trek assets and liquidating unneeded items which used to be associated with the Star Trek Experience in Vegas--most of the stuff they've sold is stuff made specifically for the Experience, which was not used on the actual show. Case in point is that Klingon throne which Alec mentions will be for sale--not screen used, just an extra made for display in Vegas. The Sword of Kahless will no doubt stay in the studio's own archives.
Where was that sword used? It certainly doesn't look anything like the one the TNG episode where it was found, or the DS9 'Sword of Kahless' episode...
Most obvious is that the Klingon insignia is not cut out on the screen-used one...
Is this from another episode maybe? Just not sure where it's from... Or is it a hero made for the Experience?
I did some research and I found somebody named Dragon Dronet was responsible for etching the designs. I guess those designs represent people's names. Maybe Gil came up with the shape?Don't get me wrong I have met Gil 5 times and I like his work but, "The Klingon Armorer" and designer of Klingon knives seen in the movies :rolleyes
That is an insult to the ones who DID MAKE and DESIGN them

And why can't you ? You are torturing me !!!
... and that Targ info is rubbing salt into the wound :cry
This is disappointing news :cry I am looking forward to reading the Star Trek Blog on what happened.I just got back form picking up these assets from Vegas, the Sword is a repro, it was made specifically for the experience as a display piece, was hoping to see a hero, i've held the stunt, but there were ALOAT of other screen used items
