    Default Conan the Barbarian Atlantean Sword

    Anyone have any experience with the swords on ebay? I like the Marto ones, but they are a bit more than I want to pay and this one does not have their marking on the blade, and I like that. Figure $100 or so isn't that bad of a price for a piece to hang on the wall.

    I haven't bought off of the bay. However, I have a Ren Faire in the area. One of the biggest if not the biggest on the east coast. I can tell you that most of the swords they sell there are all the same stuff they sell on Ebay. They usually look good but you can tell they are very cheaply made when up close. I have a knock off Strider Sword and the real deal from United Cutlery. The knock offs blade is much thinner and bends easy. It also has "made in pakistan" on the blade. Others are made in China and will likely have that on the blade as well.

    That said if you just want something cool to hang on the wall I say go for it. I had several hanging in my basement at one point. If you want a replica go for the Marto. However, I think they are lots of $$$$.

    Just read the entire auction and yes its from China. However, I have found that the stuff from China is better than the Pakistan blades.

    it's a decent display piece, however, if you want something to play with... 440 stainless stinks. it looks nice but it's brittle compared to carbon steel. for the price it's ok

    I have a lot of marto swords and that one is not a marto.

    The marto conan fathers sword is soooo nice.

    I agree... This sword is crap compared to the amazing Marto swords. I am currently trying to squirrel away cash until I can afford one myself. It's a lot of money, but the Marto Atlantean is gorgeous and totally worth it.

    I wish I could score a Marto Father's sword... its at the top of my prop list. But the current price is hard to swallow.

    I have the Marto Kurgan sword and it is great, definitely a quality product.
