Welcome to the “Attic”
Although I routinely sell used items from the rental stock, from time to time there are certain styles that are discontinued. I need the room and want these items out of here – so the prices are going to be the best anywhere. Feel free and rummage around. You never know what might end up here, so check back every once in a while to see if something you need or want pops up. All attic items have been used and are purchased “as is” – no returns. Better models sold first. Regular UPS shipping charges apply.

When you see that clock it means that that particular item is a “countdown sale”. It is the opposite of an auction, and the most democratic way to have clients decide what they want to pay for a prop.
The price of that item will keep dropping every week until it sells or reaches its bottom price, at which point I toss it into the recycling bin and it becomes next year’s Corolla. The longer you wait the more you risk that it may be gone, because you don’t know who else is also interested or what that bottom price is. [Isn’t this fun?] So don’t wait too long, because even the starting price is lower than you will find anywhere else.
and yes … these are sales prices !!
This is a very rustic replica of the sub-machine gun designed in Austria for WWII. The originals were much better made than other automatic rifles of the time. Still seen throughout the world, they were purchased by dozens of countries, but always in small quantities due to their high price. This replica is much cheaper, befitting it’s rudimentary construction. But it is wood and steel, with no moving parts, so very sturdy.
[last one left] $65
Also called Wushu fans, stainless steel ribs on tough nylon fabric. Makes a great parrying tool and allows for some very flashy attacking moves! 13″ closed, 25″ when fully opened. $20
[two in black still available]
Full 17″ blade, for a menacing addition to your round barrel muskets. Cast metal, so it is a weak prop, but does fit well on the G55 Long and G54 Short Flintlock Muskets. [Does not lock in place, but rather uses a set-screw]
$4 each – that’s right; LESS than the rental cost. I have way too many of these and need to move them, so take advantage of this great deal. These normally sell for $25 each! If you have a musket with a 3/4″ external barrel diameter and no front site, these bayonets are exactly what you need.
Designed in 1958, it was first issued to US forces in Vietnam in 1966, and was the standard American military rifle until it was replaced by the more compact M16A2 during the 1980’s.
Here’s the good, the bad and the ugly on these:
Good – Great price, super light, and astoundingly realistic!
Bad – Extremely fragile. Must be handled gingerly and absolutely cannot take a shoulder strap or will fold like a cheap suit.
Ugly – From our rental stock, so many have already required substantial repair. Better models sold first.
These were purchased through Collectors Armoury, and are made of plastic and metal with a few moving parts. Length – 38 inches; weight – 7 lbs. originally $240 ….. buy one today for only $51!
Typically elaborate broadsword guard style of the Spanish early Renaissance. As time went on, the same styles were reduced in size and became the first rapiers. I can put on one of several blade choices on this, so you could have an arming sword, a rapier, or a dueling smallsword! [I only have one 8″ guard left. You choose the blade that you want on it.]
epee or demi-epee blade – $45
schlaeger blade – $94
vorpal blade – $144
Don’t ask me to explain this weapon – I built it without plan or intended use. 23½” overall length, 17″ blade, 5″ wide, and 2 lbs in weight. Crazy strong. All steel except for the brass counterweight which was pounded into the hollow handle. $25 [originally $130]
Another fantasy piece of mine. Spring steel blade from Indonesia, rattan handle, and my own fabricated steel dagger guard and pommel. It’s fight worthy and very pretty, but you know what is even better? It is so incredibly light! The entire weapon weighs less than 17 ounces!! Blade is 19″ long, just over 1″ at the widest, and the overall length of the sword is 26″.
[the only one I ever made; original price $265] $211
This one is a bit rustic, admittedly, built for my own use, not as part of the rental stock. I used it for teaching/performing when I needed a stout true rapier. Since I no longer do much of that anymore, there’s no real reason for me to keep it.
I cast the plastic handle and crafted the steel parts, all welded together instead of stacked. Blade is 35″ long and 1″ wide at the shoulder. The overall length of the sword is 43″. $220
