THE FIRST CUT
Even before Spartacus was a gladiator, he was a magnificent combatant – and after his training for battle in the arena, the Thracian becomes a deadly force of nature. VIP Fan Auctions is now offering a sica sword that Spartacus – played by the late Andy Whitfield – used so skillfully on-screen during his time in the arena is now available to the fan who places the winning bid. Designed by the Spartacus props department for use in production of Blood and Sand, the curved blade is a true piece of television history as much for its place in the hands of the original Spartacus as it is a distinctive prop from the first season of a truly epic series.
