J.R.R. Tolkien once famously said, "Not all who wander are lost." But sometimes, let's be honest, you're wandering because you made a wrong turn and your GPS is leading you to a Western Sizzlin' in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.
Imagine how much cooler being lost would be, our friends at Badass Digest propose, if you could do it while wielding this impossibly shiny, Orc-gutting, $10,000 instrument of death. I'm not sure what one has to do with the other, but certainly nothing could go wrong driving around in an unfamiliar neighborhood with a sword across your lap.
That's right. Wellington, New Zealand's WETA Workshop, 's digital and practical effects house, and purveyor of all things Hobbit, have created a real as [email protected]#k sword for the biggest fans of Middle-earth to get Doritos Locos tacos grease on.
The great thing is that it's beautiful, well-made, and features intricate and faithful detailing on both the sword itself and the scabbard and strap. The bad news is that the obvious demographic to which this would appeal, epic fanboys with Hobbit feet socks, generally can't spare that kind of scratch.
In any case, if you're feeling stabby, but, you know -- a really ELEGANT kind of stabby, this is your pointy thing jam.
