Collecting The Precious – United Cutlery Glamdring Replica (and contest)!
The next item from United Cutlery we’re previewing this week is the sword of Gandalf himself Glamdring. Also known as Foe-Hammer, this sword is found by Gandalf in the treasure trove of items the three trolls had stanched away in their cave. Beater, as its known by the Orcs, was once the sword to the King of Gondolin and is the twin sword of Thorin’s sword Orcrist. This sword has been created in stunning detail from the prop created for Sir Ian McKellen to use as he plays Gandalf the Grey in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Fans can pre-order this piece right now for $190 from Budk.com and it will be in stock in December of this year. UC is also running a contest to win one of the cooler swords wielded by any villian in The Lord of the Rings. All you have to do is enter this awesome contest for the sword of The Witch-King which ends November 14, 2012 at 10 am EST.
