The Witcher: How to Get Your Very Own Witcher Sword

Thanks in part to the popularity of Netflix's The Witcher, the entire franchise -- books, video games, and just about anything else -- has seemingly seen a significant, corresponding jump in popularity. Given the Witcher fever gripping the world, chances are that you or someone you know has entertained the idea of either getting or figuring out whether it would be possible to get a sword like the ones featured in the franchise. The good news is: there is definitely a way, but the bad news is they are exactly as expensive as you might imagine.

More specifically, the Polish swordsmith Kaer Morhen Forge appears to craft and sell steel and silver swords, among other Witcher accessories. They claim swords are only made on commission, however, which means the price can vary depending on various factors. "Depending on the model and the details, the swords range from 400 euro for a basic one, advanced – 500, supreme – 700 to master swords at 900 euro," the FAQ reads. For reference, that's around $440 at the lowest to $1,000 at the highest, and that's not even accounting for runes, scabbards, and the like.

Geralt of Rivia, a solitary monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts.
