    Legolas' FIGHTING Knives!!!

    My knive came this morning at 10:49 a.m. They are absolutely beautiful. I plan to post some pictures when I figure out how to work my camera.

    I just want all the people who are questioning getting these knives, THEY ARE WORTH IT.

    Re: Legolas' FIGHTING Knives!!!

    If the handles are dark and UC is making the scabbards dark....Why are all the retailers calling them White knives?

    Quote from BBB site:

    "Because of the white ivory-like handles and the white colored sheaths of these knives, some Lord of the Ring fans refer to these Fighting Knives as "White Knives". The Fighting Knives will come as a set, and the scabbards will will be sold separately."

    Because they are misinformed. Actually most retailers call them the fighting knives.I don't care if the are darker or not, just so long as the ones in the movie were. I just want to know why their were two different props used. I bet the movie people didn't think we would notice.
    THEY DON'T KNOW US VERY WELL, DO THEY PRECIOUS!!!!

    Re: Legolas' FIGHTING Knives!!!

    I dont think it was weta that did that. If you watch the Extended DVD's... it shows that they took great care in getting every detail as close as possible. It's quite possible that two different woods were used. And the couldnt get the same wood for another set of daggers. Also its been brought up by others that the lighting may have been a factor. But what really matters... Did you notice a difference in the movies the first time? or did you have to watch specifically for them.

    Im going to buy them regardless... just... need to get Anduril first... etc.

    Dude of course I noticed the change. THey changed color in FOTR too, when they are in morian and legolas turns to aragorn and says "we must move on, we cannot linger", the knives are almost brown. I just want white knives not yellow.
