United Cutlery, the industry leader in movie knife reproductions has been awarded the license to reproduce swords from all three films. United has meticulously reproduced the actual prop swords using only the finest grade materials and craftsmanship of the highest quality. The first three swords being produced are Sting (UC1264) – the sword of Frodo Baggins, Glamdring (UC1265) – the sword of Gandalf the wizard, and The Sword of the Witchking (UC1266). All three swords will be available for the December holidays 2001, with additional sword releases planned for 2002 and 2003, in conjunction with the release of the second and third films.
