Albion/Film Swords is proud to announce that we have been working with Vic Anselmo, retired knife and swordmaker, over the last two years to replicate his most famous sword.

The sword, which appeared in the 1982 cult classic, The Beastmaster, is a fantasy hybrid of a Japanese katana and Arabic scimitar. This piece has fascinated sword and movie aficionados for almost 20 years.

In 2001 Vic came out of retirement to make a replica of the sword. Created to his original design drawings and the exact specifications of the original sword, Albion/Film Swords is producing a limited 20th Anniversary Limited Edition and a 20th Anniversary Collector's Edition. The guard of the Limited Edition sword will bear the Albion Mark™ alongside Vic's "Anselmo" mark, just as it appeared on the three original swords.
