Imagine my fan-boy excitement when I chanced upon this 'Glaive' movie prop from 1983's fantasy-adventure Krull.

To me when I was growing up this five-bladed weapon shaped like a star really captured my imagination. It was as cool as Luke Skywalker's Lightsaber, as the ancient and magical weapon returned to the wielder hand like a boomerang when thrown.
In the movie 'Prince Colwyn' (Ken Marshall) use the Glaive to rescue 'Princess Lyssa' and marry her to unite their rival kingdoms against the evil 'Beast' and his invading army of 'Slayers'.
Derek Meddings was the original prop designer of the Glaive for Krull.
