Collecting The Precious – United Cutlery Staff of Gandalf the Grey and Orcrist
The last two items that United Cutlery has up for order right now are the staff which Gandalf will carry during The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and Thorin Oakenshield’s Orcrist. Gandalf’s staff has been recreated using the exact prop Sir Ian McKellen used during filming. It measures an incredible 73″ tall and will come with an Elven style wall display showing his G-rune.
After escaping from three troll,s Thorin and company take shelter in what turns out to be the troll’s cave and hidden horde of loot which would include the sword Orcrist. This amazingly good looking sword has been recreated from the replica used by Richard Armitage during the filming of the movie. Orcrist measures 38 3/4” long and features a 25 7/8″ stainless steel blade which, of course, has the etched runes in the blade. Orcrist is due to ship in December of this year with a cost of $175 while Gandalf’s staff will also ship in December with a price tag of $140. Both items can be found at our friends at Budk.com!Posted in Collectibles, Collectibles, Hobbit Movie, Ian McKellen, Merchandise, Richard Armitage, Shop on October 22, 2012 by elessar
