I have wanted this sword for some time now. Although not the most sought after of he Conan movie sword, I've always liked to look and shape of this sword. I have to say I was definitely suprised. I was expecting less, but got a very nice sword. Sure, there are differences between this and the movie version (Albion version). Mainly, this has a wooden handle while the movie version has a leather cord wrapped handle, and the movie version has the "cat face" on the pommel and Windlass' has a flower looking design. Small differences for the money. It has a great blade. I took away one star only for those differences. All in all, I'm very happy.
