    Description

    William Smith "Conan's Father" stunt Cimmerian "Father's Sword" from Conan the Barbarian. (Universal, 1982) Designed by production designer Ron Cobb, the "Father's Sword" is seen in the opening sequences of the film when Conan's father (William Smith) tells young Conan about the significance of steel to their people, the Cimmerians. Attacked by a band of warriors led by Thulsa Doom (James Earl Jones), Conan's father is killed and Doom uses the sword to decapitate his mother. In the final battle between Conan and Doom's henchmen, Conan encounters his "Father's Sword" that is wielded by Rexor (Ben Davidson) and he breaks the blade in two with his Atlantean Sword (a special breakaway sword was used for that particular sequence). The sword features a distinctive deer skull cross guard with cloven hoof pommel. What looks like Cimmerian script is molded along both sides of the reinforced fiberglass blade, but it actually reads: "Suffer no guilt ye who wields me in the name of Crom." Of special note, unlike other examples of this sword, the hilt has been weighted for realistic balance when handled in fight sequences. Total length of the sword (including the hilt) is 38.8 inches. The suede leather grip exhibits wear and minor chips and scuffing are present on the paint finish along the blade. Overall, in production used fine condition. Acquired from a crew member who worked on the weapons for the film. An incredibly significant and iconic screen weapon.
