Etreme Awesomosity

Being an military history buff I have always been a bit of a hoplophile, and being a hoplophile I have visited many sites the offer swords and all kinds of arms, from cheap replicas to high quality museum pieces. I am also a The Princess Bride geek and appreciate the sword created by Domingo Montoya of Arabella, Spain and carried by his son Inigo.

So how in the heck did I miss this?

A limited edition Six Fingered Sword.

It's made from hand forged spring steel, so you can use it to fend off marauders.

There is a Dread Pirate Roberts/Westley version also made from hand forged steel so you cat do some rodent extermination around the house.
