Hello Everyone:

I am a fan of the Chronicles of Narnia movies. A new episode will be in theaters soon and I was wondering if "Peter's Sword" will be available again.

I am refering to a licensed steel reproduction with an etched phrase, a lion head pommel, and a wall plaque to hang it on.

Just curious. K.O.A. does not have it anymore. They used to. Only an unlicensed version is listed.

found a site that has it now, check out this website:

http://www.replicadungeon.com/narnia-peters-sword.html

given, it looks like their webpage hasn't been updated in a while though, so you might want to make sure it is still the one you want. i suggest emailing them.

I LOL'd at the description...

Quote:
"The hilt is made from pure metal and shaped like the Lion."

"... the cross guard is a satin finished stainless steel."

The blade is also mirror polished to perfection and includes a blood grove.

I really like this piece. The Narnia books and early Narnia movies from my childhood probably contributed greatly to my love for swords. I have for a long time wanted to re-hilt a good quality type XIIa blade with those fittings.

Jeffrey Robinson created a real sword with cast bronze parts and a blade from Albion.

He is a realy great guy and his quality is top notch (I own some swords made from him).

His work is priecy but is worth every cent. Dont bother with replicas and wallhangers if you can go for the real deal ;-)

Here is the link to the sword: http://www.bronzebyjeffreyjrobinson.com/kingmaker.html

I hope this helps.

Best wishes,
Meschler

Well it depends on the fittings: If steel of at least decent quality the fittings could be recycled and used with a better blade. Even brass could be usable but if it's some sort of " pot metal " for the pommel i.e. pure metal as opposed to what crappy metal, would any seller make a point of praising the low quality of the " metal " used ?

Very true of coarse. I'm making the assumption that its brass just based on the coloring, the price point of the sword, and previous experience with similarly priced items. I could be totally off, and if that the case it wouldn't be possible to do what i proposed.

Christian, interesting piece. I'm not particularly fond of the guard however. One of the attributes I like about the movie sword is the coupling of a fairly simple steel guard and blade with a more ornate pommel.

Someday. when money available for such a thing, it would be worth it to me have Lundemo or someone make something similar.

I bought one of the original Peter Swords for my youngest son. The guard and pommel are/were both steel, with the pommel being plated. I was actually impressed by the overall quality of the piece for the price.

Ah, nice to know, and if the blade is of reasonable quality with a sound mounting with a good tang it may not need a new blade although if one wanted to make it better with a high quality blade it might be worth the effort.

Hi Dustin, I believe the pommel is gold plated brass and screws onto the tang. The cross is nickle plated steel and the grip core is plastic. Personally, I find the blade rather whippy, but it's a windlass made carbon steel blade, so at least it's better than many stainless steel SLO movie replicas. I hope this helps,
Dan
