    James Bond movie knives


    ADVERTISEMENT
    With the new James Bond movie coming out I thought it was a good time to discuss knives in his movies. I saw some pretty good knives in the Casino Royale. Does anyone know what kind where used or the makers who made them. How about from other James Bond movies. I want to know more!

    Didn't see every single Bond movie.
    But strangely enough, I don't recall havin' seen him specifically issued with a knife.

    Perhaps he was issued a Q-knife :-)

    But fast forward to the here 'n now, current Brit laws certainly discourages any romantic ideas about good guys battlin' evil with a knife.
    I do wonder how much negative publicity would be raise on the issue of Bond havin' applied the use of an OTF automatic...
    On the other hand, I am totally blown away by a production publicity still of our "gray" man in a saville row suit armed with a rather large MP-5 fitted with a sound suppressor??! (I suppose the excuse is that HK is British owned and a favorite of the special service elements).

    No, I mean knives used in the movies, mostly I guess, by the bad guys. In Casino Royale he takes the bad guys knife off hin by disarming him, and knifes the culprit with the bad guys own knife. British law certainly didn't discourage that knifing.

    It's a UMP, and isn't Heckler&Koch German??

    In Live and Let Die, the secret agent at the funeral in New Orleans (which turned out to be his, after he was was murdered and put in the casket) was knifed with a stiletto on the street by a a man posing as a funeral bystander.

    You're right on both accounts
    Didn't realize that Royal Ordnance,UK sold of its interest to three Germans and a single Brit individual in 2002.

    And (heaven forgive), mistook the UMP for an MP5SD

    Really? Looking forward to seeing that when I see the movie. I've always like the Triton design.

    Seems to be alot of good knives, knifings, use of knives, etc. in the James bond movies. More than I could remember offhand. I love these movies and have seen everyone, many times. They had something on the news the other day that mentioned the fact that Bond movies made more than any other series. On another note, The Scott Glenn movie, Night of the Running Man (1994), has some incredible knife scenes. Glenn stars as an enforcer for the mob who hunts down a guy who stole $1,000,000 from them. Glenn's character uses a knife exculsively to kill his victims and adversaries. It is a custom folder. I would really like to know if someone could id this knife.

    In one of the earliest Bond films -- I forget which -- Bond is issued a briefcase bearing some decidedly low-tech "gadgets." Hidden inside are gold coins, among other things, as well as a fairly run-of-the-mill skeletonized diving-knife-style dagger.

    EDIT

    I found it -- it's the briefcase from From Russia with Love.

    Hmm my post didn't work, I'll try again. This is from the scene in the Miami Science Exhibit.

    From Russia With Love - the poisoned blade from the "shoe" knife that springs from the front. Check this out from a guy whose hobby is recreating Bond props (including the shoe): http://www.freewebs.com/scaramangasg...ofvillainy.htm

    Only sharp knives are interesting.
