I have loved this sword and wanted it badly since William Smith (Conan's father) first held it aloft in the opening scenes. Far more than the Atlantean sword, the shape, style and beauty of this sword had me lusting after it for thirty years. Now, I own it :D Pros: While not identical to the movie version, it is highly detailed and the differences so minute (other than structural considerations in the hilt I will explain momentarily) that only an obsessed fan *raises hand* would notice. It is surprisingly well-balanced for a sword as heavy as it is. For fighting blades and general swordsmanship, I prefer Tinker Pearce's blades for their accurate weight and balance (light light LIGHT! Heavy weapons = dead warriors, as true today as it was back then), so when I say this it means something. No wallhanger-slinger am I, yet I can cut and move with this about as well as I can a heavier hand-and-a-half. Not that I expect most people buying this will take it out for tatami cutting or AEMMA/ARMA training, but it was still a pleasant surprise. Cons: Weight is a bit of a con if you plan on carrying this around as part of a barbarian costume, but that comes with the territory of a movie-based sword. The hilt is different from the movie in that it is hollow as opposed to a solid chunk of bronze. This keeps it from weighing 2-3lbs heavier, so overall this is a minor con. Cleaning is an issue due to the hilt construction. Not much of one, but due to the hollow skull eyes allowing access to the blade within, you will need to get in there with cleaning-cloth-on-a-steek tools to maintain the blade. Due dilligence for maintaining such a blade required. Overall, an excellent purchase.
