Headless Horseman's Hero Axe
Washington Irving's timeless tale of murder and intrigue is told through the eyes of director Tim Burton. Ichabod Crane (Johnny Depp) is a New York detective sent to the town of Sleepy Hollow to investigate a series of mysterious deaths. With each of the victims found beheaded, the locals believe the culprit to be none other than the ghost of the legendary Headless Horseman. This is the Headless Horseman’s hero axe from the Tim Burton 1999 film adaptation Sleepy Hollow. This hero hand axe features a curved wooden handle, large metal blade and is clearly visible in the scene where the Headless Horseman goes to the Killian house to collect their heads. Unlike stunt versions this type of axe was used during close-ups or scenes requiring less action due to the safety of the actors.
