A Dwarf of independent spirit and inclinations, Nori the Dwarf was accustomed to relying on himself and trusting his own resourcefulness to overcome the challenges that his adventures occasionally presented. To that end, he was never a Dwarf to be caught without that most versatile of tools, a short, sharp knife.

Indeed, he carried a number on his person, secreted or worn openly, among them a short, broad bladed, double-edged design that fit snugly into his palm and could be drawn or concealed in the blur of a seemingly innocent gesture.

These prop replicas have been created from molds of the original weapons used in the film, using the same high impact urethane material as the props on set and finished using the same techniques and materials.

Richard Taylor, Special Effects Supervisor at Weta Workshop explains the use of urethane:

Although we use steel and aluminium to make a lot of our swords, often we benefit from the casting of these in a high impact urethane as we are able to capture the complexity of detail we are wishing to cast into some of our weapons. We have therefore chosen to present our collector’s edition of Hobbit weapons in the same material used for the making of the film props to exactly replicate the techniques and artistry used in the films."

The Knives of Nori the Dwarf come with a reinforced polystone wall plaque for display, pride of place, on your wall.

The Knives of Nori the Dwarf are part of a range of high end authentic prop replicas from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. All created by the artists in the filmmaking community of Wellington, New Zealand.

 

So far, Weta's range of prop replicas from The Hobbit movies includes:

I love them!!

I must say that I read the description for the knives over and over, I wasn't comfortable with the idea of the knives being made out of polyurethane. The knives are a cast from the real thing so yeah...that sold me. I got them I love how they look, the shape, color, and display plaque it so gorgeous. But me being a sword collector for LOTR, still feel that some level of magic was taken from the props by being made from polyurethane. I will purchase all other props from Weta for the Hobbit because I do love them. Hide.
