United® Cutlery Awarded Weapon Replicas License for “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” and “The Hobbit: There and Back Again”
From 2001 to 2012 United® Cutlery produced a beloved collection of more than 50 licensed weapon, helm and prop replicas from the successful The Lord of the Rings trilogy, and we are proudly continuing that line with replicas of weapons and arms from director Peter Jackson’s highly anticipated films The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and The Hobbit: There and Back Again, productions of New Line Cinema and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM). The line will consist of Dwarven and Elven weapons and arms replicas, along with signature icons, such as the Staff of Gandalf, Sting, and the legendary sword of Thorin Oakenshield, Orcrist. Each collectible will be exactly replicated from the actual film props created by Weta Workshop for the film production. Sting and Orcrist will lead off the line, which will be released in late 2012.
