An SFX sword handle belonging to The Operative (Chiwetel Ejiofor) from Serenity, Joss Whedon’s 2005 big screen continuation of his much-loved television series Firefly.
The crew of the Serenity - lead by Captain Malcolm Reynolds (Nathan Fillion) - must evade capture from an assassin sent after one of the crew, the young telepath River Tam (Summer Glau).
The Operative is an assassin with a steely focus who will do whatever is necessary to achieve his goal of tracking down River Tam. He kills several people with his trusty sword in the film and this SFX version is one of several made for the production. The blade has been cut so only part of the blade protrudes from the handle, creating the effect of being stabbed into someone.
The blade is metal, with a black acrylic handle. Black string is inter-woven through the ridges of the handle to provide grip. The item shows some wear from use on the production, including some small scuffs and scratches, but remains in an otherwise good condition.
Materials: Ferrous Metals, Acrylic, Man-Made Woven Fibres.
This item comes with a Prop Store Certificate of Authenticity.
