    Tennyson: "anyone identify the knife?"

    Great job on the bag Tennyson, another excellent find.

    I believe Nomi's throwing knives are custom made. There are two of them - the upper one you see in the photo and one under it, further down the strap, facing the opposite way, so both handles face outward.

    I've seen the rubber stunt knives made for the film, and apart from the handle being black with a black cord wrapped around, the blades are steel coloured (not black).

    The upper knife has a thin blade; I was working on making a plastic one last year - this is my model of what the upper one looks like:

    The second knife has the same handle, but with a tanto blade, which has 'stainless' stamped on one side and 'China' on the other. I believe both knives were modelled after this one found online, however the pouch is a little different:

    Disappointed that these knives weren't handled in the film.

    Always have an escape plan. Mine is watching James Bond films.

    Flyye one arrived from Military 1st, agree, nice quality!

    thought It would be a fun if impractical bag to have but turns out it fits a Mavic Pro 2 perfectly and batteries fit nicely in pockets so maybe it’s now my drone bag!

    Just need to work out the extra attachments now!

    Just realized I misread Paragon for Pentagon, my mistake. Two separate entities, so disregard my original comment.

    As an aside, SO Tech is well regarded in the US .mil and LE communities.

    I edit, therefore I am.

    How did you order it?

    Would appreciate a hint or link.

    Thank you.

    I posted a link in the original post, however they are now out of stock. When I was hunting one down when I worked out it was, I could only find it at Military 1st, so I think they are like hens teeth just now.

  • IceQIceQ Posts: 249MI6 Agent

    As @Tennyson said Military 1st via their eBay page. Think they are out of stock so maybe contact them to see if more coming in.

    They advised me that they will be getting more. They couldn't provide a date, however.

    Just found this image from the inside of the Blu-Ray Steelbook.. this screen grab of a photo of an image within a DVD case is the clearest image of both the sling pack - (100% Flyye) and the FFD/Cuff case on the roll pin belt.

    not sure if anyone can take a better image as the DVD isn’t out here in NZ for a couple more weeks, and I might be able to work out the other pouch etc.

    I picked up Flyye's vertical molle pack. It seemed the obvious choice for the bag mounted on the side, near the top sling. But I'm not sure. It seems too big to me—although that might just be a function of it not being filled with stuff.

    Would love to see some pics if you get a chance.

  • CheverianCheverian Posts: 1,265MI6 Agent

    Is anyone else surprised there isn't more interest in this thread?

    Granted, it's a tactical bag. You can't wear it around and not look like you're playing soldier. But it's an important part of the combat outfit. Where's the Bond Experience vlog review?

    Assuming it's the Flyye or a knockoff (they're all knockoffs of the discontinued Paladin made by SO Tech from what I can tell), it's a pretty interesting design IMHO.

    I guess it’s whee it crosses the line from wearables to cosplay, most people can factor in the jumper, Henley and trousers into everyday wear, but the belt and bag seem to be one step too far. I have a use for the bag as previously mentioned, and the belt has replaced my everyday ‘tool’ belt for my current life on a farm, but only myself and my animals see it! I think I should have put this thread in the props section where ASP9mm has a thread on the holster, and I’ve got a thread on the dagger etc.

    Not a specific thread, only that I pointed out in one thread that it’s a traditional UK forces Roll Pin Belt buckle on black webbing, and ASP9mm confirmed that but said it had some modifications. The belt buckle was taken by British soldiers (SAS started it I believe) from transit straps, and they just replaced the with the ones on their issue belt. In time some company’s started selling them as complete belts (survival aids, USMC, Soldier of Fortune, Silvermans etc), and they are still used today instead of the plastic fasted buckle, especially in the jungle and desert where constant belt adjusting is needed


  • Bond_AmbitionsBond_Ambitions Melbourne, AustraliaPosts: 415MI6 Agent


    thanks for clarifying. Have any of the modifications been confirmed?

    It would be great to get a full breakdown on everything we know so far about the commando gear he's using. If its all reasonably inexpensive I might go full nerd.

  • TennysonTennyson A View to a KillPosts: 519MI6 Agent

    No idea what the mods are, looking at what images we can get, I think the buckle has been removed and stitched on again so the stitch pattern matches that of the pull tabs on his combat pants. The belt originally has what is called a ‘box and gate’ stitch (a stitch square with an ‘X’ in the middle) but the images seem to show both the belt and pull tabs have a box with triangle rather than x.

    I doubt any of that makes sense, and it’s mere supposition on my part!

    The X stitching is still there. I think it’s just the lighting. The nylon tab has been removed and replaced with a leather one, which has a Sam Brown retention stud hole that is supposed to keep it from flapping about. But it seems they never used that in the end, as you never see it done up. The handcuff case is very old Protec.

    The holster has had far more mods than you’d think. Apart from the Epoch clips, they added two more adjusters to the strap and a titanium slider to the belt strap, which they also used from another model. The retention straps have been swapped out too. An immense load of work for something you never see in close up.

    Thanks for that clarity @Asp9mm - do you know if the Protec case is the old boxy FFD like I already own, or more shaped with a taper to it?

    It’s more rounded than that.

    S.O Tech has actually improved upon the earlier design used by Flyye, but the newer version doesn't match the details Tennyson has identified if SA is your thing.
