John Milius' absolutely brilliant film version of Conan The Barbarian, with the amazingly muscled (but thankfully mostly silent) Arnold Schwarzenegger as the titular hero (stop sniggering, it's a real word) influenced generations of fans and hundreds of fantasy films that followed. One of the most copied / mass produced swords in fantasy history, the Atlantean sword that Conan found in a king's crypt is instantly identifiable. This version, while not *the* absolute best, is the absolute best officially licensed Atlantean sword (that doesn't have a production wait time of over a year and the cost of a good used car.)
This officially licensed* version of the Atlantean sword is hand-forged from 1085 high carbon steel and is tempered to a Rockwell harness of 52 for strength. It weighs in at a rather hefty 8 lbs 6 oz - but hey, mighty thewed barbarians are indeed mighty, and intricately detailed cast bronze fittings are also indeed mighty.
