Topic: Bonds folding knife in SPECTRE [Spoilers]

I thought I would kick off another hunt for a blink and you'll miss it knife.

In the film I noticed, second time around, that M has placed a black knife on the table next to the tan J Crew Abingdon weekender bag. You see it for a slip second and, if I recall properly, Bond places it away but you don't get to see it.

My first impression was that it was a modern, straight and squared off, matt black folder or auto, circa 4-5 inches folded. G10 handles and matt black blade.

He later gets it out to free Madeleine and all I could see in the cinema was him whip the knife out and quickly and smoothly open it with his thumb swipe action which tells me, as a long term knife owner, carrier and user, that it was an assisted opening or spring assisted knife such as a Spyderco tenacious / Military or an Emerson CQC7 or something, you don't however see the actual knife though its so quick.

There are literally tons of very capable knife manufacturers, it will be interesting to learn by fair means or foul what Bond was equipped with on this occasion.

Please keep an eye out for it and see what you think

Here are two of my similar models

Ironically, Gerber used to make a "Spectre" model thats now out of production but looks similar.

Re: Bonds folding knife in SPECTRE [Spoilers]

All I need is a screen cap and I could ID it.  It has large hex screws and shaped slabs.  Spyderco's aren't assisted openers, especially the Tenacious.  And Bond's isn't either as it doesn't open quick enough, so it's just a OHO lock knife.

Re: Bonds folding knife in SPECTRE [Spoilers]

I guess what I meant was that the OHO has a decent and effective enough thumb hole or stub. We'll find out soon enough.

Re: Bonds folding knife in SPECTRE [Spoilers]

Ah, gotcha.  The SPECTRE jobbie is quite chunky along the lines of Zero Tolerance.  It had a thumb stud for sure, drop point blade.

I remember those, nice knife and I was a fool not to have picked one up at the time  ajb007/crap  How much did they go for?

Agree it would be cool to find out the model of the SPECTRE knife though ajb007/tongue

Hmmmm very interesting indeed, I didn't even catch the drop point, could be a Rick Hinderer or something like it ?

This reminds me of a scene in Body of Lies where Leonardo DiCaprio's EDC is on the table top

I hope that we can find out what it is. Wasn't the Skyfall 'range' knife just saw cheap folder ??

Re: Bonds folding knife in SPECTRE [Spoilers]

The hex screws are bigger and flat.  Really need a screen cap.

Re: Bonds folding knife in SPECTRE [Spoilers]

My first thought was a spyderco. Would need a better view. Roll on dvd release.

Re: Bonds folding knife in SPECTRE [Spoilers]

Definitely not a Spyderco as it doesn't have the Spydie-hole, it has thumb studs.  Would have loved Bond to use a Spydie, it's my favourite brand.

I have a spring assist that deploys kinda slower than some- you'd think it wasn't an assist if you saw me open it. ajb007/rolleyes

Re: Bonds folding knife in SPECTRE [Spoilers]

These images are dreadful, but best I can find right now.

The knife looks like it has:

  • A black body
    A drop point blade that maybe stainless coloured/beadblasted, though, this could the light shining off the blade if it is polished and black. Cannot tell if its a plain blade or semi-serrated.
    Is an assisted opener (Bond opens it upwards and there is a clear thumb drive.
    It has a fairly wide meaty frame.
    It looks like it has two distinct raised finger grips along the front of the body
    A black pocket clip
    A number of surface rivets
    Rear lanyard hole

It could be Benchmade or Gerber or a new HK knife or any one of a number of well made typically US manufactured knives. conversely, it could be some cheap piece of rubbish the costume/prop department bought from a fishing shop. ajb007/crap

I have looked at hundreds of knives and can't really tell yet because of the angle of the shot

best I can see at the moment is the discontinued Gerber 06 Automatic Knife S30V Drop Point

Re: Bonds folding knife in SPECTRE [Spoilers]

I would be very interested in finding out what knife this is as well.

On that note has anyone confirmed the knife used in Skyfall he used to cut the bullet out?

Re: Bonds folding knife in SPECTRE [Spoilers]

Someone apparently has identified the knife. It's the Gerber 06 Automatic Knife S30V Drop Point.

Anyone know if these are legal in Canada?

Re: Bonds folding knife in SPECTRE [Spoilers]

They do a manual opening version too for those in places where autos are illegal.

I'm guessing certain states in the U.S., but don't know.

In most states here, guns are legal, but one-button activated knives are not. Nunechucks are not. Throwing stars are not.
In fact, any weapon you can imagine besides simple folding knives is illegal here.
But guns are cool.

This is from Canada Customs.

Prohibited weapons document http://www.knifezone.ca/canadianknifelaw.htm 

(a) Automatic knife (switchblade) An automatic knife that houses a blade that will open automatically by hand pressure applied to a lever or button in or attached to the handle (but not on the blade) of the knife.

The hedgehog ban is a wise one. I've seen them mugging old ladies.
