This is a great piece. I spotted this dagger being used by Iolaus in Hercules Ep"Love Takes a Holiday" which you can see from the screen caps it is not cracked but I spotted it also being used in Xena ep"King of Assissans" being taken off a peasant by Cleopatra's Guards and in this screen cap you can see that there is a crack in the same spot as my dagger. This was a great find for me because One...it was used by Iolaus and Two...My Bruce directed the ep King of Assassins. Too Cool. Gotta love the Bruce man!!

This has got to be one of my favorite daggers. I spotted it in Xena Season 3 episode "King Con" being used by Titus the gambling lord to hold Gabrielle hostage. It is a heavy resin dagger that is very nicely detailed and has an Awesome handle. I also spotted it being used in Xena Season 3 episode "Warrior...Priestess...Tramp" held by the bad guy that was trying to burn Leah the Hestian Priestess at the Stake. Check out the screen caps. Sweet!!! :-)
This is a cool looking dagger. It was used by Raczar the Head of Prince Morloch's army in Xena Season 6 episode "Dangerous Prey" and I also noticed many of the other army members having this dagger. It looks like it has seen many battles so I am sure I will find it in another episode. It is a resin dagger. The hilt is painted black but made to look like a think strip of leather all around it and it has two holes. One on the hilt and the other on the blade. Right under the hole on the blade it has serrated edges which are not sharp at all but makes the dagger really cool looking. Very nice piece to add to my collection of weapons.
Here are some pretty cool weapons. They are flying spiked darts used by the Evil Princess Alexa and her army from Hercules Season 3 episode "War Bride" but one of the screen caps show Hercules holding one. I was able to get 3 of these. The two you see on the left are made of hard foam and the spikes feel like resin which some have fallen off due to use on the show. Each spike is a seperate piece that is fastened with a nail and then glued on to stay in place. The one on the right is made up of hard foam and the spikes are a very flexiable foam rubber and all the ends are wooden spikes. You can see that the paint is coming off. It looks as though the black color was spray painted on but chips off in little pieces. But besides that this weapon is pretty cool because there is a screen shot of it in the title menu on the Hercules DVD which I added that as one of the screen shots. Neat!!!

Here is a gorgeous arrow that is 35 1/2 inches in length. There are about 4 different colors on this arrow consisting of Black, Gold, Red and Blue. I have spotted this arrow in 5 different episodes of Xena. Season 3 ep"One Against An Army". It was one of the poisoned arrows of the Persian Army but as you can see in the screen cap Xena uses it on one of them so that she can get the antidote to save Gabrielle. Season 4 ep "A Good Day" by Temecula. Season 5 ep"Kindred Sprirts" by Xena when she tries to go out hunting, also Season 6 "The Abyss" being used by Gabrielle and also held by Xena and Xena Season 6 ep"Dangerous Prey" by Morlocks men. So this type of arrow sure has been around.
