Kit Rae Avoloch Sword
History Behind the Avoloch Sword
Enter the world of Amman where the Ancient Ones were masters of flesh, fire and steel. According to the mythology by Kit Rae, as man and beast began to enter the world of Amman, the Ancient Ones felt the need to keep in control. They commanded the Dark Elves to create swords out of the elements of the land and named them the “Swords of the Ancients”.
It was during the 5th age of Amman when the Avoloch sword was forged. The name Anoloch means soldier of steel; “avo” means soldier and “loch” means steel. On the side blade, youâll find the inscription, “Avoloch will yield to none but truth.”

The Avoloch Sword has three stainless steel blades (false edged), engraved runes, leather wrapped blade and handle grip plus the cast metal hilt is uniquely detailed. The workmanship is unparalleled, the detail is fabulous. The blade is 24 1/2" long while the entire sword is nearly 44inches. You won't find a better quality sword for the price than that of a Kit Rae. It will make a beautiful addition to any sword or fantasy weapon collection.
The only con might be the weight. It is a little heavier than other swords. At the same time, the weight really gives it a feeling of authenticity.
