At 16 inches long, this prop is big and impressive. It is durable plastic, not foam, so it should hold up to many nights of scaring. It has an old metallic look and is tinged with a bit of red, but additional fake blood or rust coloring can be added for a more authentic look. The handle is hard but is comfortable to hold. It looks so real you will be tempted to thrust it at people or impale objects. Be careful, now! It's only a prop.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
