United Cutlery is insane for dropping the LOTR sword line!-It must have brought them tons of new customers! Myself, I've never purchaced a UC product (or any sword fro that matter) until the LOTR swords came out-now I have three! I never would have boughta UC product if it weren't for LOTR and now that the line isdiscontinued I probably never will again-unless UC lucks out and gets a contract on the wheel of time series (assuming this ever makes it to film). How many other people are in this same boat-never a UC customer before LOTR. Maby if enough of us speak out they'll reconsider.
