Numb skulls, more licensing and Marines oh my

OK, here are the principle trouble makers and general numb skulls behind our madness- Robin Chaudhuri (General Manager), Dave DiPietro (Marketing) and Ranit Windlass (Vice President)- never hurts to have a Windlass in your corner. Of course, there is a cast of dozens, sometimes hundreds that are needed to pull off our zany ideas, and we're fortunate and grateful that Windlass Steelcrafts, Atlanta Cutlery & Museum Replicas staff members put up with us.

Anyway... Have we shocked the licensing world again after Marvel? Possibly. We're in negotiations for a few more exciting properties to geek out about and updates will be posted here. So y'all come back now, y'hear.

Finally, on a serious note, we know some of our brave soldiers overseas have chosen ACC bowies as their personal preference for close-quarters-combat and other tasks. That's the biggest compliment we could ever hope for and we're extremely grateful to them- not just for their choice, but for their service. Come home safe.

In honor of those that serve our freedom we will be designing an exclusive combat bowie featuring elements they prefer to be introduced in their honor this fall. Of course we'll keep you posted right here.

We've been doing cool stuff since 1971, I bet you didn't know that. ACC & MRL have continually branched out and focused on what our patrons ask for and deserve from historical items to TV, books and movie licensed props. The more real and authentic the better. So...

How cool is this!?!?! Real props from the Marvel universe! OK, I admit it, I'm a closet geek. Well this geeks here to tell you that whether you fess up or not, this is really cool. I'll bet there's something you grew up with too that you keep ah, hidden...right? C'mon admit it. As the saying goes, "Time to take a stand!"

I'm reading your mind now...Yes, this can be a very cool job, but it's not all fun and games (well much to our bosses chagrin most of the time it is). But unlike most companies that would have you just walk your merry way and force feed you products, we're fans too and I'm happy to give you the inside scoop to our crazy days and even some sneak peeks into our creative process and what's coming before the average Joe even knows they exist.

And remember we're all for input from you, as long as it's good (seriously, the bad stuff sucks). The contact info is on our website. If you have a question and the answer isn't already there, we'll think of something. Welcome to the world of Museum Replicas and what the heck, Atlanta Cutlery too.

Oh yeah, about Marvel. Read the Press Release on our website because that's why we did it.
