Rubber Stunt Chakram used by Xena in the series. The Charkrum is Xena's throwing weapon. As such it is thrown in the air and often a rubber one is needed to avoid injury to actors on set.
The prop features a circular rubber design with custom gold and silver style paint with several mother of pearl ornamental pieces fixed into the weapon.
In addition to rubber chakrams such as this there were sold resin ones, rubber ones with holes in them to allow for the item to be thrown via lines and what not, and a hero metal one used only in close up scenes. A different style wooden charkram was used by Xena in her first introduction in the Hercules series. In addition a Yin/Yang style Chakram was used by Xena in the last season of the show.
