This is my first, and probably only, experience purchasing a sword. That said, I am very pleased with the product. It appears to be well-crafted and tightly assembled. Since it is intended only for display, and will likely never be employed against Hyperborean slavers, I am completely satisfied with it. Nonetheless, it is obviously a real weapon and not a toy or facsimile, and should be recognized as such by anyone who is considering its purchase. In my opinion, it was easily worth the price.

These Windlass reproductions of the Conan swords are to me marvels. I own all three of the swords and I really like them. I also own the $3k one from the other company and a custom one that cost the same and this sword still impresses me. Its blade like the Fathers is a little wider then the movie sword giving it a nice hefty look. If you are looking for lively sword forget it these are fantasy swords but still they did a nice job of making them usable. If you want the Atlantean buy this sword.

I have wanted this sword ever since I seen Arnold wield it in the movie, back in the 80's. This sword has always ranked #1, on my list of most loved, and desired swords. I am amazed, and impressed over this gorgeous weapon. Everything about it is pure awesome. I had to wait awhile to get it, but it was so worth it. The price is great compared to other Atlanteans of it's caliber being sold elsewhere. There is a bit of clang, just past the guard, on the extension, but very minimal. The ruins are what looks to be a baked on sticker, not etched into the blade. I can look past all that, because it isn't an Albion. When you hold it, you will see that it really is a great, and beautiful sword. Other than those little things I mentioned, it is a very solid, and beautiful sword with high detail. I am extremely happy with this sword overall. Thank you everyone at Museum Replicas/Windlass, you have made my long desired dream, of owning this wonderful, and epic sword real.

The design and detail are amazing, and the fittings are well made. I have other swords by Windlass, but this is the best by far. I have always loved the sword of Conan, and this was my return to collecting after going years without a sword purchase. The sword exceeded all my expectations. Was worth the wait!

What a deal!!! I have several swords in my collection and have always considered this to be the pinnacle. When I received the sword, I was a little worried after reading some of the reviews. Man is this thing awesome! No rattle whatsoever and sharp as hell. The bronzing job is incredible and it really feels authentic. Windlass and Museum Replicas are the defintion of best Bang or "Clang" for the buck you can find! Well done and thanks for delivering the memories of my childhood.
