The pipe of Thorin Oakenshield is sturdy and of Dwarven make, carved in a warm-hued timber and only lightly ornamented with a scaled pattern upon the faces of its faceted bowl. Much like Thorin Oakenshield himself, the pipe is rugged and practical, without fanciful trappings and decoration proclaiming its owner's royal heritage.
The Pipe of Thorin Oakenshield was created for The Hobbit by the artists at the 3Foot7 Art Department. This non-functional prop replica has been created from molds of the original prop used in the film, using the same high impact urethane material as the props on set and finished using the same techniques and materials to achieve the same well-loved look as it has in the film.
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.
Please note: The Pipe of Thorin Oakenshield was designed and prototyped here at the Workshop. Images are of pre-production prototype. Each piece is painted by hand and variations will occur.
This is a non-functional prop replica and comes with a polystone display stand.
Weta Workshop’s authentic prop replicas are designed by the very same artists and technicians who work on our movies, using the same techniques and materials. We treat our prop replicas with the same level of care, quality and attention to detail that we bring to our film work.
