The axe has a wooden handle and metal blades, both of which are painted a golden colour. There is a semi-circular dent on one side of one blade, where the weapon struck the gong mallet wielded by Imhotep. There is a corresponding mark on the mallet, which is made predominantly of wood, with a metal rod running through the middle of the shaft. The mallet end is a ball of foam rubber wrapped in leather, and at the other end there is a Egyptian jackal head, also made of foam rubber with a metal armature, designed to look like wood.
The axe has some wear from production use, including scuffing and scratches, most notably on the blade with the dent. The mallet has scuffing and scratches and the jackal is missing the top of its left ear. Dimensions (axe): 107 cm x 32 x 4 cm (42" x 12 1/2" x 1 1/2"); (mallet): 137 cm x 18 cm x 18 cm (54" x 7" x 7")
