Not really an epic movie but think I saw a Buck 119 in the movie "Karla" yesterday. Its a very heart warming film.
On the bad guy side, for knives that you can actually buy, the Buck General I think was (in the Friday the 13th series) Jason's favourite, and is even reproduced in giant form on several posters of the movie serie.
In recognition for its -I guess- iconic stature, the Buck General is almost the only knife, massively used, by "Ghostface" in the whole Scream series...: Interestingly, the clip of the blade often appears to be slighly re-ground to exaggerate its curvature, for a meaner look it seems:
That same Buck General was heavily put forward visually in the Jeff Bridge/Glen Close movie "Jagged Edge", and AGAIN its clip was modified, with nicely done -if of dubious use- serrations ground into the clip... The serrations are a major point of the movie, to the point of being in the title...
Iconic flagship knife of two movie series -I even remember seeing it in innumerable other horror movie posters-, often in large view on the poster, and title subject in a third movie, the Buck General has got to be the most underrated movie knife of all time...
How could anyone not have mentioned Tarzan's knife. Iconic knife of my childhood. Good for killing lions and crocodiles, depending which movie Tarzan you preferred.
Loved James Cobern in magnificent 7. but my hero wasJames Caan as Mississippi in John Wayne's el dorado. I was throwing my Rambo knife ever chance I could and kept it in the back of my shirt like he did!
It's better to laugh at nothing than cry about everything.
The knife that had the most impact on me was the spyderco the bad guy used in the Van Damme movie "Hard Target". It was the first non auto, one hand opening knife I ever remember seeing. It's probably the reason I'm on the forums today. I had always liked and owned knives, but that one really made an impact.
Oh well...got me!
I'll offer up the Iron Mistress knife from the Iron Mistress. So epic that it rewrote history (actually more like took history, crumpled it up, and threw it out the window) as to what Bowie's knives looked like.
Certainly not epic, but i was happy to see one of Gotham's lunatics sporting the Vallotton. If you've handled one of these you too would have enjoyed seeing it on film; albeit in the hands of a serial killer. i love this knife! Spyderco and Butch rocked this one.
