oh yeah

This product it very cool. It certantly makes a great addition to any harry potter collection. You'll never get tiered of it. Can get damaged if it is handled poorly.

The case is nice and it displays well. The detail is very nice, and the cabachons look great. When I read the description, I thought that being 34 inches long meant the sword would be 34 inches long. The length is fine actually, but the width of the sword - it could almost pass for a fencing sword. Maybe Nobel chose to stick with a scale replica rather than shortening the length of the sword and keeping the width as in the movie. This could have been much better looking if the blade was wider - I strongly feel that widening the blade would be more beneficial to the item than keeping a true scale.

    Comments about The Sword of Gryffindor:

    One of the best pieces of memorabilia I've seen in my years of collecting. Although expensive, I thought the blade was perfectly designed. I would have liked to put it on my own plaque based off the house crest, so I was somewhat disappointed with it already being attached to a plaque. I also noticed that the craftsmanship, while remarkable, is medieval in design, where as Hogwarts is supposed to be thousands of years old. Other than that, remarkable piece of memorabilia

      The detail and quality are amazing; moreover,the display is almost museum quality. The sword is mounted in the display with an excellent safety feature which limits accidental removal. It is a wall hanging I am extremely proud to display.

        Comments about The Sword of Gryffindor:

        As close to a true replica that you can find. I would like to get it sharpened, but I am afraid that it may destroy it due to the lack of width. I expected that it would have the H.P. logo, near the blade handle, but I am disappointed that " Godric Gryffindor" was NOT ETCHED into the blade, but was either painted or is a decal. All in all, well worth the investment, especially at a discount, because the quality is such that it should last a lifetime. Also, the sword is easily removable from the case without causing any permanent damage. Would be a beautiful accessory for a Holloween costume.

        Comments about The Sword of Gryffindor:

        The "real" sword of Gryffindor would not say Harry Potter on it which is why I said not authentic. Also, the "real" sword is probably supposed to be bigger. That being, said, I love this sword. It is actually the perfect size to display on the wall. The whole piece works perfectly and I love the Gryffindor symbol on the display hanger. I have a Harry Potter library and the sword is a perfect addition!

          Comments about The Sword of Gryffindor:

          The sword initially seemed smaller than that in the movie, but after re-watching them, it appears to be just the right size. The wall mount it came with makes this a great collectors piece, and looks awesome in my office.

          Comments about The Sword of Gryffindor:

          This really is a cool sword, worth the money spent, has a decent feel and is quite attractive on the wall. Nice detailing on the handle.

          It comes on a surprisingly nice quality felted mount plaque- real wood with a good deal of edging work. Also with a few modifications the sword is easily removed/replaced from its display.

          Its definitely not sharp at all.....and clearly is not designed for actual field use as you might say though it does not feel 'fake'. Not a problem for me. My only complaint (which has been expressed in other reviews) is the sword is unusually narrow, almost like a fencing blade. I don't remember the sword from the movie being so thin. Also the 'Godric Gryffindor" lettering appears painted on. I personally don't like this, as I prefer the realism and the sword from the movie didn't have such commercial lettering with (tm) of course.
          Nevertheless, happy with it and recommend.

            i love this sword, it's pretty much just like the movie just a little narrow then the movie version but it's perfect.. i read that people didn't like this because it's not movie sized or small, i'm sorry but they are wrong its same length and still as the movie, this is supposed to fit the hands of a 12 year old boy remember.... it is definitely worth the money i love it :)

              This Sword was very beautifully detailed (not sharpened if you are wondering). Watching my daughter's expression when she opened this was the best gift I got at Christmas. She loved it and we both almost cried of joy.
