This is one of the few Conan Swords made from Conan Sword maker Jody Sampson's original molds that were used to make the sword Arnold wielded in his iconic film, Conan The Barbarian.

More Press on this Conan Sword:
“60 Minutes” - President Schwarzenegger? - Oct. 29, 2004
He (Arnold) commutes from Los Angeles to Sacramento every week. Showing 60 Minutes around the governor's domain in the Capitol building, he takes a kind of boyish pride in his wall of fame, great moments in the Schwarzenegger administration. In his office, he keeps his favorite movie weapon: the sword from "Conan the Barbarian," the film that made him a star.
THE LAST TIME I had been in the California governor's inner office for a one-on-one interview, I was meeting with Gov. Gray Davis, who was in deep denial about the impending recall election. I was there again Tuesday to talk to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. How was it different? Well, let's just say that Schwarzenegger keeps his "Conan the Barbarian" sword in a lined box near the head of a long conference table.
"Go ahead," the governor told me after the interview, "pick it up." I wielded the Savage Sword of Conan, although my stomach slice was cut short when it met with the corner of an antique chest. (Warning to Assembly Speaker Fabian Núñez: Schwarzenegger says that the sword is so heavy that a mere nudge can send a chunk of flesh flying.)
