United Cutlery Walking axe of Gimli UC1415 Can't Post

Hi guy's.

I'm new here so I will keep it short. Christmas is coming and I've been looking for this axe for a while now but it is sold out everywhere. I've been looking on ebay Canada but there are only 2 and are way overpriced ($699). So if any of you guy's have one and want to get rid of it, send me an e-mail with an offer at emmanuelao10@hotmail.com

P.S: here's a vid so you can see how beautiful that baby is.

Have you done many google searches? [In reply to] Can't Post

I don't know anything about Canadian customs, but is it easy to buy something from a US site, and have it shipped to Canada?

One of the first links I found was this. And there are plenty of other websites. Smile

the thing is... [In reply to] Can't Post

many U.S sites don't ship to Canada and those who do ship with UPS or other private shipping companies who charge extra S&H for border crossing. So you have to pay an extra $50 + the taxes which here in Qubec end up being around 17% of the total price.

It's a shame, isn't it! [In reply to] Can't Post

Buying abroad is sometime cheaper (for me in the UK), even after P&P. UK customs are very funny about importing swords though.

I'll carry on searching for you. Smile

You might try the good folks at Reliks [In reply to] Can't Post

Reliks is a Canadian sword dealer located in London Ontario. They carried Gimli's Walking Axe back when it was current (listing)and might know of someone wanting to unload one for a reasonable price.

One thing I'm wondering... [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm wondering if united cutlery will do another set of this axe as an Hobbit film collectible. Gloin is the one who carries this axe and then gives it to his son Gimli. They did this with the sword of Gandalf (Glamdring).

And the inscription-less Sting [In reply to] Can't Post

I think it's probably likely Durin's Folk. Smile
