Constructed by Weta Workshop, world renowned for their achievements in designing and constructing props that were faithful to Tolkien's writing, the sword is made from dense urethane over a metal core. The recurve shape is reminiscent of the Japanese nagamaki and Chinese podao weapons. The handle is detailed with a brass-coloured leaf wrap that spirals down to the base of the grip. The blade is decorated to resemble metal.
This piece was gifted to executives at Sideshow Toys, who visited the set in 2002. As Sideshow Toys was licenced to distribute collectibles for the Lord of the Rings films, the executives were allowed to choose mementos from the set. These select props were branded with a unique code and note of ownership. This particular item has been etched with the text: "Prologue Elven Sword Sideshow Toy/12 June 02/0012 W." The weapon exhibits minor wear due to production use, but remains in excellent overall condition. Dimensions: 132 cm x 5 cm x 18 cm (52" x 7" x 2")
