UC sells low cost knives and swords. I cannot recommend their samurai swords to a serious martial artists but they have a fancy collectible display swords for fantasy fans.
United Cutlery Anduril, Glamdring, Sting and other LOTR and Hobbit weapons are must be for fantasy fans.

  1. The original and the current UC are a two different companies. I still have the old boxed Sting sword version which was an awesome collectible item. The current quality is much worse than the years ago.

  2. Reviewer is right. There is a huge difference between various UC brands and product groups. UC so called functional swords and knives are crap but i love their LOTR and Kit Rae swords. They are just wall hangers but pretty awesome fantasy wall hangers.
