Well folks, the economy sucks doesn’t it? We want to help you out, and we want to clear out more inventory before Needle arrives. So, for the month on April, to celebrate hopefully most of you getting tax refunds, we’ve knocked the price of Longclaw down by $40, now just $200 + shipping. This sale will expire at the end of April, so get it now while you can and save.
If only I didn’t live in Japan…
Thanks!! Expect my order in the next week or so!!
Out of curiosity, how many swords from the 2500 piece run are left?
Yay! So it appears I am one of the few who got the April discount. And I got a great number, which, incidentally suggests to me how many were sold until now.
Anyway, I love my Longclaw, it’s very nice, but I have some constructive criticism to make that should be in time for the eventual Ice design.
When I picked up Longclaw, I was slightly disappointed with how unbalanced it was. I know this is a replica intended for wall display but still, I find it nice when I pick a sword up if it’s possible at least to wave it around just for the heck of it. The hilt is realtively short for two-handed grip, the blade is wide, and with those characteristics I would have expected a heavier pommel. The point of balance is several inched from the crossguard.
I own a real medieval martial arts practice “bastard” sword and have used some from different makers, and they usually spin easily in the hand with a heavy hilt and pommel compared to the blade. Of course I don’texpect the same from a wall-hanger. But still, even my LOTR official replicas are closer to the real thing.
So I am making this comment to suggest that Ice’s “Cool factor” would be increased if attention was paid to improved balance, a heavier pommel compared to the blade. Thank you for reading and considering this!
Wow, just saw an advertisement for Longclaw in the GameInformer magazine(sept 09). I never would have expected to see it there. Hopefully you guys will get some more activity here.
