    I've only seen the Noble Collection swords in person.
    How does the United Cutlery swords compare in quality to those of the Noble Collection?
    Also, has anyone heard rumors of when in 2004 Boromir's sword will be released by United?

    I would like to know that also!

    I have Gimli's Axe from The Noble Collection and it is ok....
    It looks good, but if looks/feels more like a resin rather than metal.
    Not that it looks bad, but it doesn't feel right for some reason...
    It isn't sturdy....I hope UC's is stronger!

    I am really interested in the difference between UC's Sting and NC's....
    I know NC's is longer, etc...

    I heard that NC's Hadafang is longer as well and it has raised leaves on the handle rather than painted (Or however they apllied them)

    The NC swords are a little over the top to me.

    UC has what I like, more accuracy in my opinion.

    i would say that the noble collection swords are of poor quality in comparisen to that of UC. The only thing that noble collection has on UC is that they have better plaques. Other wise i would suggest on not getting any Noble collection swords because they really arent that nice and they are tramendously over priced

    That's for sure, I do own Noble's sting myself. I Bought it from a online cataloque living in the illusion that this sting would be even
    more special than UC's. Given, the sword is a little larger than it's UC counterpart but to say it's a $200 worth difference....?
    The plaque is not that great either.

    I have seen the NC Gimly's axe. I think it is a piece of junk. I have several swords from many smiths and makers. I believe that the UC LOTR swords are well made for what they are. I have not seen any LOTR swords from NC but the claymore they make is terible. I would recomend UC. Keep in mind that these are "wall Hangers" not battle ready or practice pieces.

    I would say that without a doubt UC has better swords than NC! If you want jewelry or pretty things to place around your house, go ahead and buy from Noble Collection. But if you want well made, beautiful, functional weapons, UC is the best choice!

    Generally The noble collection swords are a bunch of over priced pieces of garbage as we seem to think

    UC produces the best swords I have ever seen or purchased. The craftsmanship is unbeatable. I doubt any one could be disappointed with UC swords...:D :D

    The NC swords are generally inferior to the UC counterparts. However, NC's Gandalf Staff is not bad. It has good detail and plenty of heft to it.

    I wish I had known more about Noble when I bought their version of sting. I don't want to be disrespectful of anything I consider to be ''Tolkien-involved'' but Noble's sting is really far less beautiful than UC's.
    Guess I learned from it all...........
