Questions on authenticity and price Witchking Sword
( Springfield, MO.)
I recently purchased a replica of the sword of the Witchking from The Lord of the Rings at a local shop and I am curious about whether or not it's some kind of knockoff and also if I got it for a good price. It only came with the bottom half of the original styrofoam box but inside it was the sword wrapped in plastic, it says made in Taiwan if that's important. It also came with a plaque and a piece of paper that says The Fellowship of the Ring on it. The paper also says it's United Cutlery and has the whole "one ring to rule them all" speech on it as well. I've looked at pictures online and it looks similar and has the "aged" look on the blade, but I'm still not entirely sure. My main concern is the made in Taiwan part and if that's correct or not. I paid 60 dollars for it. Thanks!
