Making the WitchKing battle ready sword was one of the most interesting and challenging projects. Whereas the sword required little creative demands, the interesting crown like design of the WitchKing’s pommel proved quite challenging to make. Adorned with thorn acid etched motifs and towered by a claw or crown, this particular medieval sword’s pommel is among one of the most original design we have come across.

The dour design, repeated at the handle and guard, compounded by a piercing blade makes this piece one of the most memorable battle ready swords from the Lord of the Rings trilogy. The blade, borrowing features from the historical Type XVIIIe blades, The WitchKing sword features a long, stiff diamond shaped blade with an extended handle for greater reach. These elements make this massive two handed sword suitable for both cutting and thrusting during combat, as many other swords were in the later 15th Century.

Relatively light for it’s size and surprisingly well balanced, this two handed medieval sword has excellent cutting and thrusting abilities. Similar to other battle ready swords with Type XVIIIe blades, the Two Handed WitchKing fantasy sword also has a long unsharpened ricasso that can be gripped when thrusting and hence, adding one’s body weight when delivering a deadly blow. Although a Fantasy medieval sword in it’s own right, the Two handed Witchking battle ready sword is an incredibly versatile weapon.

While at 4lbs 4oz, this massive sword is not for the feint of heart, the balance point - some 2.75" from the cross guard, makes it feel surprisingly light in the hand. Until the point of impact that is, when its full weight and tremendous power come into play..

Unlike Darksword blades we sold in the past, the sword is automatically also given a thorough sharpening until it is paper cutting sharp (normally costing an extra $35) and is also shipped FREE in North America - giving you the very best deal possible.

This sword comes with a wood core scabbard as standard with the option to upgrade it to include a premium quality sword belt with suspension system - allowing it to be worn or for an extra flourish when not in use hung on the wall (see below for a comparison).
