The trusty weapon carried by Uhtred Ragnarsson, the hero of “The Last Kingdom” series on Netflix, has quickly become one of pop culture’s most recognizable swords. Now, thanks to a collaboration facilitated by Spotlight Licensing on behalf of Carnival Films, Jalic Blades will soon be able to offer fans an exacting replica of this weapon to display in their own home.
“Knowing how important this unique sword is to Uhtred as a character and to the overall story, we wanted to make sure we got the look and feel of this replica right for our fellow fans,” says Chris Beasley, owner, Jalic Blades.
Jalic’s 1:1 scale replica of Uhtred’s Sword is more than three feet long with a stainless-steel blade, antiqued nickel-plated cast handle, faux leather wrap and a custom molded acrylic pommel gem with faux inclusions. Each sword will be serial numbered and come with a special display plaque featuring a silkscreened design based on Uhtred’s armor.
“During filming of ‘The Last Kingdom’s’ most recent season, Jalic was able to pull dimensions from the actual screen used prop and get detailed, high-resolution photos to be used for reference,” says Carole Postal, president, Spotlight Licensing. “The result – drawing upon Jalic’s years of expertise and experience in creating movie and television replica weapons – is a truly beautiful and amazing replica.”
Uhtred’s sword will be available online and through specialty retailers.
