    That grail knight sword is just incredible. It's one of the eye-catching pieces in my collection. A must-have for eacht Indy fan. Never seen another replica of this prop, actually...

    Let me add another glowing review of the Knights sword. It is absolutely a work of art. The detail is nothing short of... I don't know. Perfection? If you ever wanted the best and possibly only sword ever made, this is the one!

    Does the monkey head cup include the monkey head or only the cup itself?

    I couldn't remember if the head itself was a kit sold separately by someone in the past.

    I'm tempted by the grail sword (who wouldn't be) as I mull my decision over, can I ask what the blade is made of and some details of the tang? I understand the handle is plated but plated on what? I'm just trying to work out if it's usable or a 'wall hanger' (I hate that phrase)

    thanks for for the info, and is the dagger made using the same process?

    Sword and Dagger are made of same materials. Handle is made in zinc 24kt gold plated, and blade is in steel

    So I'm presuming the handle is cast, preened onto the tang and the blade is stainless or mild but polished? I'm not trying to be rude so please don't think I am, I do fight with swords and just wanted to be sure what the swords made of. You make beautiful stuff, I've seen it frequently and I'd love to, and will I'm sure buy something one day if not this. If it's usable, I would deffo stretch to it, if it's not, I may consider only because right now I'm thinking about commissioning something from a blacksmith in the uk and I can't get both (funds and all that). Thank you for the answers, you make amazing stuff.........

    Thanks for your words :)
    Regarding blade it is in real steel, but I don't think it could be use for a battle :/
    What you want to do with it? The gladiator? :D

    Are you not entertained???? Naw, me and a friend learnt to sword fight properly years ago in a reenactment society back before health and safety meant you can only fight a choreographed fight. We get together and knock blades in the back garden frequently to keep fit more than anything ( it's more fun than jogging for sure) still it keeps the neighbours amused........ But despite our early learning lack of safety skills, there's some blades you can clash and some it's really best not. I'm attached to my limbs and plan to stay that way. Thanks for the honesty, I'm still contemplating it because it's a lovely sword so I may still go for it.

    Here is a picture of my sword (scabbard was included, plaque is made by another member):

    GrailSword01.jpg

    The handle was a bit too shiny to my taste, so I gave it a quick wash with gold + black acrylic paint. I was quite happy with the result:

    GrailSword02.jpg

    Didn't had time to hang the plaque and sword to a wall in my new home. The plaque was a piece of art on its own and was made by indianaandrews especially for this sword. This was back in 2011 when Seradnab did the first run of these (Yeah, I keep the history of my props in an Excel file ;-).

    Sound like you got yourself covered in the event of having to sell your collection. I also keep data on props I buy, but instead on a series of Word documents. ;)

    Héhé, Yeah, I keep these data of all my props: creator, person I bought it from, date of payment + price I paid and place I bought it (mostly RPF, but also eBay, COW, cons, online stores, etc...). At this moment there are over 300 lines in that spreadsheet. Quite some lines for props from you (5% of all my props come from you, I guess):

    • Story Grail Diary
    • Grail Knight Sword
    • Book of Secrets
    • Lao Che Coin Bags
    • False Grail
    • Booth Diary
    • BTTF Challenges
    • Hook
    • Voodoo Doll
    • Booth KGC Pin
    • Grail Manuscript
    • Cross of Coronado
    • Staff of Ra Headpieces
    • Nurhachi Urn
    • Whiskey Bottle
    Only Rylo does better (I own 16 props of him). Total amount spent on props (all props, not only yours ;) ) at this moment: over 32K euro's... :wacko

    Anyway, back to your sales thread. Good luck with it! I'm sure these props will be gone soon... Especially the swords...

    Received the sword today. Very nice quality to this prop for the most part. Now i will need to allocate some time for making a plaque/hanger that does it justice. Thanks Sarednab, feedback to follow shortly. Looking foward to your next prop from ToD soon to be heading my way :cheers

    Heres the plaque i've done to compliment the grail knight's sword. The idea i went with was the three trials to obtain the holy grail on a sir richards shield paint scheme.
    Now my indy stuff is spreading to the walls!! :wacko 20150707_132749.jpg 20150707_133051.jpg 20150708_160024.jpg
