It has been far too long since playing through American McGee's Alice, but not long enough to make one forget of the Vorpal Blade. If you're familiar with the game, you'll no doubt recognize the ornate bit of steel above as dear Alice's favored weapon of choice for slicing her way through a demented Wonderland. Well now you can buy a limited-edition replica of the Vorpal Blade for $90 (add on an extra $20 if you'd like the stand). Only 1,000 of these stainless steel beauties are being manufactured, so if that price point seems reasonable to you (and it does to me), then head over to Epic Weapons to get in your pre-order (via Kotaku).
If, however, you have no idea what American McGee's Alice is, yet alone the Vorpal Sword, I present this happy little description of the computer game from 2000 via Wikipedia:
"Shortly after her second adventure, Alice's house is burned down by an accidental fire, killing her family, and leaving her as the only survivor. Due to her survivor's guilt, she tries to commit suicide (bandages can be seen on her wrists), and becomes catatonic. She is institutionalized in Rutledge Asylum, where she remains insane and is consistently mistreated by the workers. Ten years later, the White Rabbit summons Alice to aid a radically altered Wonderland, which became a twisted version of itself as it came under the despotic rule of the Queen of Hearts."
