Robert Shaw “Quint” hero machete used to cut yellow barrel ropes and to stab at the shark while being devoured in Jaws. Vintage original hero machete that measures 20.2″ (51.3cm) long and 2.7″ (6.8cm) at the blades’ front. The heavy steel blade is attached to a 6″ slotted wooden handle riveted by 3-metal bolts. Studio-distressed with oxidized weathered metal with stained and worn wooden handle. Highly visible used by Robert Shaw in the most intense action sequences aboard the “Orca” including the rope cutting scene when the boat is threatened to be pulled underwater and during the terrifying death scene when “Quint” stabs at the shark’s face as he’s being swallowed by the gigantic predator.
The machete blade actually retains theatrical blood remnants and is in good production used condition. A truly iconic piece from this classic film.
