A Club Obi Wan special-effects throwing axe from Steven Spielberg's action-adventure sequel Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. Throwing axes were used by Lao Che's (Roy Chiao) henchmen as they tried to kill Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford) at Club Obi Wan. The axe is made of solid metal, with a grip of wrapped string. It features a hole in the bottom of the grip and near the end of the spike, through which a wire would have run to create the effect of the axe being thrown at Indy. The axe has some scuffing and scratches, as well as some areas of rusting, most notably on the blade. Dimensions: 40 cm x 2.5 cm x 11 cm (15 3/4" x 1" x 4 1/4")
Estimate: £1,500 - 2,500 M
