Hey, how's it going? I was wondering, what are the chances of a private swordsmith agreeing to recreate a UC LOTR sword (to the exact detail) but making it fully functional with a full tang, tempered spring steel blade, and properly balanced, in essence, it would be completly battle ready, but dimensionally identical to the united cutlery version. Would the swordsmith fear being sued by UC, even though he made only one? Or is it possible the smith would agree to your private request? I totally appreciate your input guys, thanks alot for taking the time and satisfying my questions.
