The Attic

  Welcome to the “Attic”

Although I routinely sell used items from the rental stock, from time to time there are certain models that are discontinued. I need the room and want these items out of here – so the prices are going to be the best anywhere. You’ll find prices here below wholesalebelow best dealer pricing!!
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.

clockWhat’s this?

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 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 of the guard, all welded together instead of stacked. Blade is 35″ long and 1″ wide at the shoulder. The overall length of the sword is 43″.                   $193

K67 – HOTCHKISS Machine GunHOTCHKISS Machine Gun

49″ in length, 19 lbs.   This is a heavy  piece to hold but sure has a “Rambo”- like look. When you need the look of a very serious gun. Steel and wood

Prop only – buy it today for only $85!       (the original price was $566 !!)


A lovely brass hilt on a traditional curved steel scimitar blade, found wherever Indo-Persian armies fought. I only have one left.   30″ blade length; 35″ overall. Comes with steel scabbard.

Costume only –  buy it today for only $26!


Whereas a shield is strictly defensive, the buckler is also an offensive weapon. Grasped in its center with the hand (as opposed to hanging from the forearm) the buckler can punch the opponent’s sword (or the opponent) out of the way.      14 gauge steel, fully rolled edge, 15″ diameter, 3 lbs.

I only have one left, painted many times over (currently white)  ………. buy it for only $53


We in the Western world tend to believe that the scimitar blade is very fat at the cutting end, but that is a Victorian era fantasy. Still, I made a few using aluminum blades. Only four now remain, and these are costume only, not fight worthy.

1 ½ lbs; 27″ blade length; 32″ overall; only  $35!    [original price – $184]


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 fourteen of these left, so take advantage of this great deal before they are gone forever. 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.


These are beautiful replicas of the first practical European longarm. It was the standard military musket from 1600 (when it replaced the arquebus) to 1720 (when it was replaced by the flintlock musket). The perfect musket choice for Cyrano and The Three Musketeers. These have moving action and practical ramrods. Some are brand new, never used before. Cannot be made to fire.    length = 58″, weight – 10 lbs.     Oversized shipping charges apply.

lowest price nationwide –  $202      (selling elsewhere for $640)

Y21 – POWDER HORN – full size

These are real horns that can dress up your character nicely. Used by muzzle-loader hunters from the early 1700’s into the late 1800’s.
Some are practical, some are glued shut. Best models sold first. [sold elsewhere at $22]       only   $2.30 ea
