Valiant Swords adds to its collection of officially-licensed movie replicas with products from the Disney epic “Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.” These swords were meticulously crafted to match the props in the actual film.
Released in 2010, "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time" is based on the 2003 video game by the same name. The feature stars Jake Gyllenhaal as Prince Dastan, an orphan who was adopted by the King of the Persian Empire. The story launches with Dastan leading an attack on the city of Alamut, whom they believe has been selling weapons to Persia’s enemies. This ambush results in Dastan coming into possession of a special dagger that he later learns has the ability to turn back time. After Dastan is framed for the murder of his father, he goes on the lam accompanied by the princess of Alamut who shares secrets with Dastan that reveal who the true killer is. This revelation leaves it in Dastan’s hands to use the dagger to stop a villainous plot to take the throne of Persia that could also result in the destruction of the world.
Valiant Swords offers replicas of two key weapons from this epic tale. The first is the Prince of Persia Black Shamshir of Dastan, the sword used by Persia’s wronged hero himself. Created by United Cutlery, this sword is crafted from stainless steel and has a false-edge, making it safe to handle for costuming or display. The blade has been distressed to give it a battle-worn look. The hilt is cast from antique finished metal with a hardwood grip.
The second replica is the time-turning “Prince of Persia Sands of Time Dagger.” This magical weapon is cast from solid metal and adorned with runes and gold-coloring to match the filmic version. The Prince of Persia dagger's hilt is plated with real 18K antiqued gold, and the handle has a translucent quartz-like grip that holds the grains of "time-reversing" sand.
Each replica includes a custom wood wall plaque with a certificate of authenticity.
