(Universal, 1982) This is an extremely rare, iconic piece of film history - one of the stunt fiberglass special effects swords used by Arnold Schwarzenegger as “Conan the Barbarian.” This sword was originally acquired in 1993 from one of the Art Department film crew members. Extraordinarily detailed, painted and finished to match the metal hero Conan sword which had a weight of 10 lbs. The lightweight stunt sword is classified as a “Special Effects” piece, as it has a long brass tube running down the full length of the blade, which is bent inward at its end near the sword tip, fanning out to a thin slit. This metal tube was attached at the hilt of the sword to a plastic tube, which ran up Conan’s (Arnold Schwarzenegger) arm to a pump and a “blood bag.” When pumped, simulated blood would run down the length of the tube and fan out of the brass tip, simulating the spraying of human blood as the Conan character dispatched with his enemies. The piece is in exceptional condition other than having signs of some battle wear and a crack in the hilt from stunt sequences. The sword is still very solid and even more impressive in person.
