Historic Movie Props.....

SFX Prop Sword


This prop sword was used in the TV series "Spartacus". This is classed as a "Push Rod" retractable sword used to simulated the stabbing sword action. The actor would fight using a full sword, then filming would stop and this sword exchanged as he is about to stab the victim. The rubber tip placed against the victim, then the filming would restart and the sword plunged forward, the white shaft retracts behind the actors arm mimicking the action. The white section would be digitally remastered post filming to add in a blade. This would be great for educational or re-eneactor facilities to demonstrate a fight process.
