    This is for discussion on Faramir's sword, comments questions ideas and opinions, place tem here.

    I'll start, I love faramir's sword I don't know if UC will make it, but, being such an important charcter I'm sure they will. I like the downward pointing crossguard althought there has been some discussion on whether or not this would interfere with the use of this sword, I don't think it would. I think Faramir's sword is like the love child of Boromir's sword and Striders ranger sword.
    A lot like Haldirsd sword is of the EWS and Hadhafang.

    Alright your turn, I want to hear from you on this finrod ;) :hackit:

    I loved it as soon as I saw it. Simple but elegant, and the closeup detail is really nice, you have to get close to notice it. Probably an intentional nod to Faramir, who doesn't stand out from the crowd like Boromir did, but his high quality is there to be seen if you look a little closer.

    I'd prefer an upward crossguard, but I don't think it'd affect your use of the sword. And I love the blade. One to add to the LOTR collection for me (eventually!).

    The pommel is rounded out in the movie, but the sword reproduction picture by united cutlery seems to have a small upraised point in the middle of the pommel. I hope they use the movie's pommel. High Carbon blade!! This and Glamdring are my favorites in the movie.
