A production-used stunt axe from George P. Cosmatos’ 1986 action thriller Cobra.
Los Angeles policeman Lt. Marion "Cobra" Cobretti (Sylvester Stallone) finds himself at the centre of a spate of murders carried out by a secret society called New Order: killers who select "weak" members of society for extermination. As the murder rate rises, Cobra takes model Ingrid (Brigitte Nielsen) into protective custody after she witnesses New Order's leader in action. As Cobra falls for Ingrid, they find shelter in a small town, but must soon fight for survival.
The film features an organisation known as 'The New World', a supremacist group believe in killing the weak, leaving only the strongest and smartest to rule the world. This axe is part of their arsenal and axes are repeatedly being used by them on screen.
This item is made of dark wood with a rubber axe ‘blade’ painted silver to look like tarnished metal. The axe handle displays scratches and marks all over it, presumably deliberate choices by production but also some signs of production use, handling and storage. Nevertheless the item remains in very good condition.
The axe is accompanied by a 'Heritage Auctions' certificate of authenticity from 'Stallone - The Auction', where the axe was originally purchased from Stallone's personal collection in 2015.
Materials: Wood, Rubber.
This item comes with a Prop Store Certificate of Authenticity.
