    I know they did the Witchkings sword, that was very recent, but there are two other nazgul swords. Although because they aren't from named characters perhaps Weta will avoid them.

    I’m sure the next batch of swords are going to be at least $12,000 or so. They are certainly not going to be any cheaper

    Hadhafang
    Herugrim
    Sword of Eomer
    Sword of Isildur
    Morgul Dagger
    Narsil
    Sting (small version, human scale?)

I have purchased 2 MSSC swords from Weta, but I have not heard anything about a new sword yet. Maybe they will do things differently this time. If I remember correctly, the FB announcement for Eowyn said the sword was the first in a line for woman. Maybe that meant Hadhafang is next.

    Here’s two older pics. My phone is giving me issues trying to put them at the bottom of the post.
    Thank you for posting those - simply magnificent! Orcrist is my favorite of all the Middle Earth swords; yes, Thorin is my favorite character but it
    would have been my favorite anyway, thanks to the graceful lines and exotic hilt, and the engraving - *wistful* (I would have wanted the pommel set with white sapphires, and fully polished blade).

    I'd read the "true" version is quite large - IMO whatever it cost, this is a true heirloom, a sword that really looks forged from a magical place. I'd be one of your dinner guests that wanted to hold onto your collection and then you'd have to polish everything again.

    Plus the craftmanship. I always fret knowing one day - hopefully not soon - folks who worked on the Hobbit and LOTR will retire, and any chance of getting their work will gone. Unfortunately that is a fact that encourages me to spend more money.

    For someone to make a scabbard for the MSSC Orcrist they’d really have to have the sword in hand since it’s significantly larger than the UC version.

    Seems odd to inflate the price, and discontinue the accessories!

    For my Narsil, I had a custom scabbard made, with the letter N in Elvish inscribed. So for anyone that does buy Orcrist alone, you might be able to find someone to make a scabbard for you. Etsy also has tons of medieval style belt makers out there.

    Seems to me the $6,000 range seems more palatable. Congrats to those who obtained them. I am a huge Aragorn fan, so Anduril would have been the one for me.

    I am a huge sword fan overall, as I have many of the UC Swords from LOTR including Shards of Narsil, Narsil, Anduril, Glamdring and Sting.
