United Cutlery® Releases Full Size Darksiders® Chaoseater Sword Replica Under License With THQ

MOULTRIE, GA--(Marketwire - Nov 11, 2011) - United® Cutlery, manufacturer of licensed edged and adult collectibles for the entertainment industry since 1981, announced today its release of a full-size Chaoseater™ sword replica from THQ® and Vigil Games™ Darksiders® video game.

United® Cutlery, the industry leader in collectible film and game replicas, has meticulously crafted War's Chaoseater sword replica following the exact high resolution 3D game models and artwork created for the Darksiders game. They have matched as closely as possible every detail, right down to the faces sculpted into the blade, and the fine, battle-worn nicks and dents. This sword is a high quality collectible created for video game enthusiasts and is not intended to be struck against other objects. Each steel-reinforced, cold-cast replica features a hand-polished alloy blade surface, with hand-painted and weathered surface details, just like a high-quality film prop. The grip is wrapped in high-grade, genuine leather. Included is a custom wall display. As with all United Cutlery collectibles, only the finest materials were used and close attention to detail and quality is a top priority. Each replica has been individually serialized and marked with the THQ copyright and trademark identification, to ensure its authenticity.

About Darksiders® Penned by legendary comic book artist Joe Madureira, Darksiders is set in a Post-Apocalyptic, demon-ravaged world where the forces of evil have prematurely brought about the end of the world. Tricked into bringing about the apocalypse early, War is stripped of his powers and cast down to Earth to clear his name. Darksiders follows his epic quest of vengeance and redemption which pits him against both the forces of heaven and hell.

Josh Austin, Director of Licensing and Merchandising at THQ Inc. commented, "We are excited to offer authentic Darksiders replicas through our partnership with United Cutlery. Everyone at THQ and Vigil are thrilled with the level of detail put into this sword."

Owner & C.E.O. of United Cutlery Clint Kadel said, "We're expecting this sword to be a launching point for more full-scale Darksider replicas, especially with Darksiders 2 on the horizon."

The final version of the Chaoseater replica, with an MSRP of $325, is scheduled to hit retail stores before Christmas 2011 but will premier exclusively to edged collectible dealer before all other retailers. It is available for pre-order now at
