I was approached earlier this year about making a replica of Hawk's mind sword, but the things the fellow wanted for the sword were not things I was comfortable doing. Needs a smaller pommel too. Voltan's sword isn't too terrible, could certainly be redone with the same theme but altered details to make it more visually appealing. I was fond of the movie as a kid as pretty much anything along those lines got my attention, even if only briefly.
It's always interesting to see these sorts of props up close. Often they don't have the detail or form we imagine while seeing the movie because our minds fill in the blanks and imagine something more epic. That's one of main reasons I don't like to make accurate replicas of movie swords, I prefer to make them like I imagine it should have been rather than how it actually was. Seems more fitting for a fantasy sword.
Sullivan: Haha, I’m all for using whatever excuse you can for some revelry with good friends. Yeah, just, yeah...for sure avoid the combustion in areas/surfaces... bodies that can’t handle it.
