    Robert Shaw "Quint" hero machete used to cut yellow barrel ropes and to stab at the shark while being devoured in Jaws. (Universal, 1975) Vintage original hero machete. Measuring 20.25 in. long and 2.75 in. at the blades' front. The heavy steel blade is attached to a 6 in. 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. Comes with an LOA from production designer and 2nd Unit Director Joe Alves. In vintage, screen used fine condition.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
