Martin Heal hand-crafts unique wooden swords from his residence at scenic Lake Ohau in the heart of New Zealand's Southern Alps. This website showcases his work and gives the historic context of the swords, as well as detail about the woods and methods used.

Martin, living in 'Lord of the Rings' country, played the role of an orc during the filming of the battle of Pelennor Fields. This scene was filmed just outside the town of Twizel (South Island N.Z.) with the Ben Ohau mountain range as backdrop. Martin's autograph feature's in Mark Dermul's collection on www.markdermul.be/lotr
