Real Zelda Swords

I was bored, so I decided to go online and gawk at swords that are for sale online...

I ended up going on eBay and looking up "Zelda Sword" on it, and I got quite a few interesting finds. Halloween's coming up, if you're going as Link you might want to check these things out.

And let me state for the record: THESE ARE REAL SWORDS MADE OF METAL. THEY CAN ONLY BE PURCHASED IF YOU ARE 18.

A Master Sword Replica- http://cgi.ebay.com/ZELDA-SWORD-FROM...QQcmdZViewItem

Another Master Sword- http://cgi.ebay.com/zelda-sword-from...QQcmdZViewItem

A Hylian Sheild- http://cgi.ebay.com/Zelda-Shield-Use...QQcmdZViewItem

Hero's Sword from Twilight Princess- http://cgi.ebay.com/Twilight-princes...QQcmdZViewItem

And probably the most drool-inducing...

An even better TP Hero's Sword- http://cgi.ebay.com/44-Twilight-Prin...QQcmdZViewItem

Re: Real Zelda Swords

Those are quite possibly the worst replicas I've ever seen......though they are a few hundred bucks cheaper.
I'm saving up for a professionally made MS and Hylian sheild.

Both of the Master Swords and the Hylian Sheild are also available at this site: http://www.kingofswords.com/index.ph...sort/2a/page/3

Re: Real Zelda Swords

I liked the swords (especially that TP Hero's Sword......shiny). But that shield is just all screwed up. The decorations are all of scale, and it reminds me of a plastic toy or something.

Re: Real Zelda Swords

Actually I like Blue Nights Sword better. Where can you get a sword made like that?

That's Janus's sword, not mine. Ask him.

Re: Real Zelda Swords

To answer your question, Slur, I had mine made by a friend of my former kendo instructor. I have no idea where else you can have it made (and like I said, mine cost $200).
Do you have any sword shops in your area? If so, ask them if they know anything about where you can get a custom weapon.

Re: Real Zelda Swords

It would be way better if those were ACTUALLY real weapons. They just look like crappy-plastic versions, anyone could make those. They were probably used for a Halloween costumes, i kinda want one lol

Did you check the descriptions? Those ARE real swords. You even have to be 18 in order to buy them, for saftey reasons.

Re: Real Zelda Swords

I just want to say that true kendo is more of a sport than a martial art. Before we merged with another school, my teacher taught a lot of kenjitsu than kendo, which was an actual art used in battle. Much more fun, not to mention more realistic.

And yes, the samurai did learn to stab people on the ground.

Re: Real Zelda Swords

STOP POSTING ALL THE LINKS TO THE SWORDS IM DROWNING IN MY OWN DROOL!!! Anyway, if my mom will let me I so wanna buy one... *looks at etching on wall that says "future master sword"* I have the money, I'm just not 18. Although, have you ever checked out the guys who paid like 1400 some dollors (or maybe it was pounds) for a professional sword smith to make a perfect master sword? Google images "master sword" its so freakin sweet (2nd image i believe)... I'd post the link but I don't have it on hand right now and my comp has been moving really slow (crashed not long ago)... anyway back to drooling have fun...

ooo kendo, sounds cool... must try to get lessons

Re: Real Zelda Swords

Pfft, those swords suck. The first one was some sort of plastic imitation Master Sword that isn't even proportioned properly. The next one was even worse. The only one there that I would even consider calling a replica would be the second Hero's Sword. At least it looked like it was made of metal.

I don't see what the big deal is with all of you. If you want a replica of a sword, then you get it made of metal at the exact size and proportions. I've heard of places where you can get custom swords made however you want them to. That's where you'd want to go to get a replica of the Master Sword made.
