General Safety Warning: Products sold by BBTS may be intended for Adult Collectors. Products may contain sharp points, small parts, choking hazards, and other elements not suitable for children under 16 years old.

An orator of eloquence and standing in the halls of Erebor before the coming of the dragon Smaug, Balin the Dwarf, eldest son of Fundin, was as quick in action as he was in wit.

To match the fiery words he could conjure, Balin the Dwarf wielded in battle a long, flat-bladed mace wrought in coppery hue that caught the light and shone like a flame in his hands. Though age and long miles might have tempered the keenness of the old warrior’s reflexes, both mind and weapon are as sharp as the day the dragon first descended upon the Dwarves’ mountain home, and Balin the Dwarf will not shy from drawing his star-pointed blade when foes threaten.

Balin's Mace was created for the film by the artists at Weta Workshop. Incredibly tough, yet safer than a sharpened steel blade, it has been finished to a standard that can confidently be displayed in 3D, high resolution, at 48 frames per second in the finished movie.

This prop replica has been created from molds of the original weapon 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."

Balin's Mace comes with a reinforced polystone wall plaque for display, pride of place, on your wall.

Balin's Mace is 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.
