Website crashing publicity is good publicity. That being said, it's definitely a nice looking piece, but @ $400, I could get another gun. Though I'm not much of the "fantasy-sword on the wall" guy anyway. And while I largely agree with magicswordguy, the quality of the steel is largely irrelevant for something like this. Stainless will stay pretty in grubby hands. It's a collector-piece. Nothing more. Save the carbon-steel for real knives.

Its not so much the quality of the steel as it is the price for the quality. I think $200 would be a fairly reasonable price point for a limited edition frostmourne, officially licensed and all with identical material and manufacturing. I just can't grasp the pricing, its frankly unheard of. And trust me, this sword comes out in may? The ocean of knockoffs, and for a display piece, a knockoff is still going to do the job for this sword, will be there in July.Also the bit about Kit Rae (not Kae, Rae) does little for my confidence. Kit Rae is notorious in the sword world for unwieldy and overly expensive gothic fantasy swords. The thing about gothic fantasy is that it looks great on paper, not so much once it translates into steel.
