The Shadow (1994)
"Purbha", hero FX dagger

In the 1930s, a Tibetan mystic imparts his ancient mind-control techniques to reformed criminal Lamont Cranston (Alec Baldwin). By day, Cranston masquerades as a decadent playboy; by night he becomes single-minded crime-fighting hero the Shadow. Aided by his cabbie sidekick (Peter Boyle), the Shadow squares off against Genghis Khan's last living descendent, Shiwan Khan (John Lone) -- with the safety of planet Earth hanging in the balance.

This stabbing dagger was used on screen and belonged to the Tulka (Brady Tsurutani). It is later stolen by Khan (John Lone) and is used in an attempt to kill Lamont Cranston aka The Shadow (Alec Baldwin). Its highly detailed handle is made of resin and features a demon head that is aged and painted gold and bronze. The aluminum blade has three sides with a retracting lower portion. This is the one iconic prop from the film and is very recognizable. [SU]

Mulcahy, Baldwin and Lone prepare the scene. Note the dagger between them.

  1. This is my all time favorite piece. I am so jealous. If you ever wish to sell, I would love you to drop me a line.
