Ming guard short sword
An original prop from the production of Flash Gordon, the 1980 science fiction picture directed by Mike Hodges.
Short swords such as this can be seen used by Ming's guards in the climactic battle sequence and also in the armoury. The prop sword is constructed from foam rubber with a metal wire to the interior for support and is finished in bright gold paint with a red grip.
The prop weapon measures 22" long and is in good production used condition with hardening to the foam and wear to the paint finish but remains very stable.
A highly displayable artefact from this cult science fiction classic.
