      Anyway, Guthwine's scabbard have the same grooves and is not flat like Indy's.
      Don't get me wrong, I love this one and I have also pre-ordered it. Just wanted you to know it is not 100% correct.

      True would have been a lot better with the exact scabbard but I must say this sword is looking better and better can't wait

      • I'm so torn on this, I kinda want to wait for the UC, but also the appeal of a real sword vs stainless wall hanger makes me want this.

          The sword of Isildur from United Cutlery was crafted well after the UC bankruptcy. They were individually serialized also and this was not done until late in the game. I purchased mine again brand new well after the bankruptcy.

          Where did you hear of destroyed molds?

                This is confirmed 100 times over. If anyone wants the history of the decline of UC through the years, from bankruptcy to being purchased by BudK, to present day, you can find it in the threads on UCForums. Pretty much every member there is also a member here. And as Kit works hand in hand with UC, making the prototypes for many newer UC LotR and Hobbit items, he is in the know for the histories of all items.

                • Hey guys just emailed Indy to ask on progress. Guthwine will delay a little as they are tweaking the scabbard. They are not 100% yet but they are trying to do the fullers to the scabbard

                    That's great news. The scabbard will be much better and more screen accurate with the fullers. Happy days!

                    • Awesome, still crossing my fingers I can score one...Indy made it sound like I should be good in 2 weeks when I have the funds!

                          He would accept a payment plan too

                            Props goes to Herendil for noticing the lack of fullers on the scabbard! I don't think anybody else had noticed it, very happy that he is trying to include it!

                            • Whew, my wallet can take a breather then, even though I'm on a payment plan with Indy.

                                • I’m excited for the Indy version. I placed my order the same day he sent out the notification.

                                    Same here... I have been following this from the start and though I am not a big weapons collector I just had to get this... Guthwine is just so beautiful. Plus with the scabbard well enough said.....then to top it up he's trying to make the scabbard with fullers.... if I was not sold yet well that would have done it

                                    • The fullers on the scabbard is a must IMHO. I do so hope it will happen. No extra charge if it does either. Happy days!

                                        • Now someone will need to recreate the hardware for the belt setup to attach to the scabbard! One more week and I'll be able to place my pre order.
