Retractable special effects Roman dagger
An original prop weapon from the production of Gladiator, the 2000 historical epic starring Russell Crowe under the direction of Ridley Scott.
This pugio style Roman dagger was created for the production for use as a Roman sidearm although we have been unable to locate this specific style of weapon on screen. This is a retractable special effects prop which could be used to safely stab someone on camera, custom fabricated from metal with a carved wooden handle the blade is constructed in two parts and spring loaded approximately 3" from the tip allowing it to retract in to the remainder of the blade.
A fine example of a special effects weapon from this multi Academy Award winning masterpiece and modern day classic.
