#407 - Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers and Return of the King
Rohan soldier’s ax used in two films of Jackson’s epic Tolkien trilogy, including the Battle of Helm’s Deep
Incredibly detailed and realistic screen-used Rohan soldier's axe used in Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers and The Return of The King. Ax features a blade made from dense rubber, measuring 11″ long, and features beautifully intricate engravings that are reminiscent of Viking craftsmanship. As the soldiers of Rohan were known for being expert cavalrymen, the ax also features a small horse head above the shoulder. Blade is attached to a 28.5″ resin handle that has been painted to appear wooden. Minor wear from production use, otherwise fine condition. Rohan is a realm of men in the world of Middle-earth, and axes of this style can be seen wielded by the soldiers of Rohan, particularly during the epic battle of Helm's Deep. RR Auction COA.
