The Excalibur Dagger
As a collector and bladesmith, the making of the Excalibur sword was a deeply personal project. As for many, John Boorman’s 1981 Epic Film was not only my favorite movie but, as a child, my introduction to the “Middle Ages”.
This introduction, crystalized “The Excalibur” at the core of my passion and a romanticized vision of the “Middle Ages”. Hence, forging the Excalibur sword, was a passion project for myself and the staff alike. We felt we owed this sword our utmost attention. Making yet another “decorative” Excalibur was not an option. Our recreation had to be classically elegant, vibrant, and faithfully crafted from the original prop. Our goal was not only to produce a finely hand forged sword but to produce a lasting legacy of the film.
The Excalibur is an authoritative, functional and resilient sword. skillfully crafted and engineered for the most demanding collector, the Excalibur is the benchmark of what a real sword should be.
