    Hello everyone!

    I am in the process of making Arwen's Hadhafang Sword from the Lord of the Rings Movies.
    Here's my question to all those who own the Licensced verson of this blade: I know the carvings (runes, twists etc) are on
    one side of the blade, but are they also on the back? In a replica of a replica one of my friends has, the backside of the blade is
    free of markings, and I was very curious to find out if this is the case with the real replica ones.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks so much!

    This sword, so you can imagine the size, is perfect for my 16" tonner doll. Anyways I'm going to be putting it up on auction this sunday, along with a choice of different LOTR, Chronicles of Narnia and Pamde Amidala star wars dresses. The winner of the auction gets to pick 1 dress, and if you want an LOTR dress, the sword comes along as well.
    If you want to see the blade next to my tonner, shoot me a pm!

    Take care and God bless!

    Well that's just cute. :)

    If more dolls came with weaponry, I bet you'd start seeing boys playing with them.

    OK a slight change in plans the auction now only had star wars padme amidala, leia & aayla secura, as well as chronicles of narnia. I was not able to do the LOTR ones quite yet. Although the sword will still be offered.

    WOw, never mind. Many things happened today and the sword will be delayed from going on ebay. The dresses will go as planned and that will not change, but the sword will not be put up for some time. Sorry!
