A stunt sword handle used in the sci-fi action film Serenity.
Pursued by the Alliance and the merciless Operative (Chiwetel Ejiofor) and with everyone they know being killed, Captain Mal Reynolds (Nathan Fillion) and his crew must protect assassination target River Tam (Summer Glau) and confront a dark secret from the Alliance’s past.
This handle comes from the sword used by the Operative as he carried out his work on behalf of the Alliance - this lightweight stunt version was used for safety purposes during scenes when a close-up was not required.
This particular piece was damaged through use on the production, leaving only the handle section intact. Made of resin with a metal rid insert for strength and rigidity, the piece is finished with a silver appliqué to give it a polished appearance and has a black plastic handle with black cord inlaid to help give the user a better grip.
Well-used on the production, the piece displays some wear, with loss of some of the silver film and wear to the grip. The piece remains in overall fair condition.
Materials: Resin, Ferrous Metals, Plastic, Man-Made Woven Fibres.
Item size - 8.66" x 0.98" x 1.97" (22cm x 2.5cm x 5cm)
