Remember the Operative sword The Prop Store of London offered, way back when? Possibly their very first Serenity prop?
The owner, faced with hard times, is selling it on eBay.
SERENITY / FIREFLY FANS! This is the item you’ve been waiting for! Unfortunately, for some (me) these fun (crap) economic times have lead to some interesting items coming out of the woodwork. I purchased this sword almost the instant it came up for sale. It was the very first Serenity prop to go through the London Prophouse. It comes with the certificate of authenticity and is in great shape. This was the stunt sword used in a lot of the fight scenes in the movie. You can trace a lot of the dings and scratches straight from the screen to the sword. Replicas are well and good, but this is your chance to own an actual piece of a very important movie. Can’t stop the signal.
