Excalibur: Sword of Kings

Excalibur (from +Darksword Armory and sold by Kult of Athena) is just beautiful. So let’s get the stats out of the way:

5160 High Carbon Steel
Dual hardened
Overall length: 42″ Blade: 33 1/2″
Weight: 3 lb 6 oz
Edge: Sharpened (ordered to be sharpened and it is)
P.O.B (Point of Balance): 4 1/2 inches
Thickness: 4.6 mm – 4.3 mm
Width: 51.4 mm
Grip length: 5 3/4″
Pommel: Peened

This is a fully functional and sharpened replica of the exact sword used in the movie Excalibur. At one time these were limited to 500 but Darksword Armory now makes this regularly and they do it with 5160 High Carbon Steel that is dual hardened.

Compared to my first Excalibur wall hanger (Stainless Steel and for decoration only) sword, this beautiful creation is a beast. It is heavy but it feels good in the hand. The grip is wrapped in the chain and I don’t know if it is being star struck or what, you feel powerful and kingly holding her up. Amazingly beautiful.

I have not tried cutting anything with it and whether I ever do is still up for internal debate. I may just hang it up on the wall, marvel at it, and wield it every now and then just to continue to be star struck by it.

 I think now I want to go and watch the movie tonight. After all, it is the greatest and best Arthurian movie that has ever, and will ever be filmed. A classic that can never be bested by any other version.
