Kit Rae is one of the foremost fantasy/collectible weapon designers and artists in the industry with a worldwide following for his unique weapon designs and fantasy art. Kit has also designed numerous functional knives and throwing knives, and has produced and supervised licensed replicas of edged weapons from dozens of films and video games. Images from a hidden world of dreams and nightmares inspire this line of edged creations, exclusively manufactured by United Cutlery. Since 1984 Kit's fantasy knives and swords have appeared in numerous films and television shows and have spawned the creation of a huge collectible market worldwide for fantasy weapons that has generated numerous imitators. His most well-known creation is the world renowned, best selling Swords of the Ancients collection, a tale told in story, art, and steel. All of Kit's edged fantasy weapons include a companion print of his fantastic artwork and a mythology about each weapon. His edged creations are available at fine knife, sword, fantasy, and collectible stores worldwide.
Kit's designs are some of the most imitated and copied designs in the knife and sword industry. The authentic originals are marked on the blades with the Kit Rae sword logo, a KR or UC number is marked on the back of each blade, and each includes a parchment certificate (except some early knives and Kit's sporting knives), and the packaging is clearly marked with the Kit Rae logo and trademarks.
Each Kit Rae sword includes poster print of Kit's art. If it is missing any of these it is likely a fake.
