A special effects crysknife from David Lynch's sci-fi epic Dune. Crafted from the "teeth of dead sandworms", crysknives were favoured by the Fremen natives of Arrakis, who wielded them throughout the film. This SFX weapon would have been used in scenes where blood effects were required.
Made of off-white resin, the blade is designed to look as if it's carved from a large tooth. Its handle features silver-coloured faux plating and several shallow holes painted in shades of brown. A thin, rubber bloodletting tube is glued to the back with a small slice cut along the edge where it meets the blade to allow blood to 'appear' after wounding an opponent. There is some discolouration on the glue and tube. Dimensions: 30 cm x 4.5 cm x 4.5 cm (12" x 13/4" x 13/4")
Estimate: £2,000 - 3,000 Ω
