So....United Cutlery. Those who collects swords and knives will tell you that United Cutlery produces crap, and they're right. Their products, especially the blades, are typically poor quality. The saving grace of the brand is in their licensing, producing cool looking art pieces whose only function is to look good as display pieces. They have produced licensed product from Lord of the Rings, Rambo, GI Joe, The Expendables, Kit Rae, Gil Hibben, etc.
One such line I was enamoured with when I saw it some 15 years ago was Samurai 3000. The concept was simply what samurai and ninja swords would look like two millennia from now. I thought the hilt and scabbard looked so awesome. Futuristically cool.
Over the weekend, I was able to buy the ninja sword and tanto for $30. Hopefully I will find the katana version soon for as low a price and complete the collection:
