The real deal

FrazettaDeathDealer.jpg

Frank Frazetta's Death Dealer is a touchstone to a generation of metalheads. Now the Death Dealer Axe (and matching helmet!) is available in a limited edition of 1000 pieces by FilmSwords. Not a replica, this is the real deal.

Each axe is handmade by the talented artisans at Albion with a carbon steel (hand-ground blade) and mild steel (investment cast socket and spike), with an antiqued, hand-finished and hand-rubbed haft.

Though certainly a striking display item, the Death Dealer is fully functional.

Just like Commander Data? Much as the Death Dealer Axe's hand-rubbed haft sounds appealing, and as handy at the helmet would be for British Iron Age shows, if I could only pick one item on the site it would be a Martian Longsword; just the ticket for duels hanging from the rigging of the old aetheric battle zeppelin. More along the same lines at Jody Sampson's limited edition swords website.
