Gifts from Middle Earth
By Desiree Weeks
Looking for one gift to rule them all?
The one-of-a-kind gift for the Lord of the Rings fan in your life (or for yourself) can be found among the officially licensed products at BudK. Each is a screen accurate replica manufactured by United Cutlery, known for their high-quality collectables.
Each piece comes with a display and certificate of authenticity, perfect for avid collectors.
Whether prepping for battling orcs or just hanging out in the Shire, here are a few items to consider for the collector in your life.
The Sting Sword
Fans of the Hobbit trilogy and the Lord of the Rings trilogy are sure to love Sting, a sword carried by both Bilbo Baggins and Frodo Baggins.
We have both versions of the sword. Bilbo’s Sting and Frodo’s Sting both are exact filming prop replicas constructed by Weta Workshop with distinct Elven detailing. Frodo’s Sting also includes runes in the Elven language of Sindarin that translates to “Sting is my name, I am the spider’s bane” on the blade and cross guard.
Each comes with a wooden wall mounting plaque.
You shall not pass on this great piece from United Cutlery. Gandalf used this staff to help the Fellowship of the Ring find their way through the dark mines and later used it to protect his companions from Durin’s Bane by breaking the bridge to Khazad-dûm.
Just like in the film, this replica lights up via a LED light stored in the crown. The overall staff is crafted of polyresin with hand-painted details to give it the look of twisted wood.
Sauron’s Mace and The One Ring
Looking for something a bit darker?
Check out the replica of the massive mace wielded by the Dark Lord Sauron. On the slopes of Mount Doom, Sauron emerged wielding this six-sided black iron mace while wearing the One Ring on his finger. Just as it’s presented in the film, this piece is finely detailed with intaglio-etched surface and corroded metal coloring.
This mace is sure to be a striking addition to any collection and includes a Red Eye of Sauron war banner, the One Ring, and certificate of authenticity.
Helm of King Theoden
Every collection needs a solid piece of armor and the Helm of King Theoden is a beautiful statement piece to add. Just as Theoden’s armor was the finest in Rohan, this replica helm is the finest on the market. Made of reinforced polyresin with the look of real polished steel, this helm has all the same intricate run and horse motifs as the film version with Rohirric design embossed on the leather neck guard.
This piece is completed by a polystone and wooden display, sculpted in the shape of Theoden’s neck and shoulder armor, with individual serial number on a metal shield.
Second Age Gondorian War Shield
This Gondorian War Shield was carried by the soldiers of the White City of Gondor in the Last Alliance of Elves and Men in “The Fellowship of the Ring” and can now grace the walls of any home.
Measuring 44 3/4"x 18 7/8”, this piece is sure to stand out with its hard polyresin build and Tree of Gondor and Crown motif. It also includes a cloth war banner of Gondor and mounting hardware for easy wall display.
