The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is an extremely popular franchise that has spawned a lot of merchandise, toys chief amongst them. In March of 2016, Factory Entertainment released the “Leonardo Katana Prop Replica” which is a duplicate of the one used in the forthcoming movie “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows.”
Copied directly from the original props used in the production of the film, this museum quality item has been hand-crafted to deliver a replica of exceptional collectability. Factory Entertainment’s development team spent innumerable hours scrutinizing the original props and production reference from the film, creating the world’s first replica of a signature weapon featured in a Ninja Turtles movie.
As a screen-accurate piece, this replica has a total length of 41.5”. The highly polished blade of the sword is forged of high-carbon steel and is gracefully curved with a kissaki point/tip with a Iaito-style dull blade edge. The hilt features a corded wrapping in Leo’s signature blue, with white reproduction ray-skin beneath and eight turtle-shaped menuki/ornaments. The tsuba/guard is cast metal and features a turtle shell motif. The pommel is also cast metal and features an embedded reproduction stone. The carved hardwood scabbard features an enamel paint outer coating and six cast metal turtle ornaments.
