    Nobody.

    In case you haven't heard, United Cutlery is done with the LOTR line. They've already disappointed hundreds of cutomers by cancelling the Elven Warrior Sword after only releasing a few.

    I'm one of the preorder victims myself. :(

    BBB is a retailer, not a manufacturer.

    You could probably get a custom knife maker to make a replica, but it wouldn't be cheap and it wouldn't be a licensed product.

    As for mass-produced licensed awords, that ship has already sailed for the Grey Havens.

    If you're thinking of getting a custom smith to make you a movie-quality LOTR replica, by "bunch of money" you'd better have at least USD$500. And that'd be a "reasonable" price. A full sized custom sword like the LOTR swords could easily be up to USD$1000.
