A pick axe from the production of Steven Spielberg's Oscar-winning war epic, Saving Private Ryan.
Just after D-Day in World War II, a company of men led by Captain Miller (Tom Hanks) are tasked with finding Private Ryan (Matt Damon), whose three brothers have been killed in combat and now must be sent home.
This pick axe and others like it would have been carried by the American soldiers throughout the film as background props, along with other equipment such as spades. The axe comes in two parts - a handle and detachable axe head - and both pieces are carried in a green canvas cover. It has been intentionally distressed for a realistically worn appearance – scratches, rust and stains are present on the handle and cover. Despite this production-based wear, the pick axe remains in good overall condition.
Materials: Ferrous Metals, Wood, Canvas.
