    I've just seen some stills from Jurassic World, and I spotted Chris Pratt's character carrying a knife scout style.
    I doubt we'll see it put to use, but it's a nice addition to the character.
    Pratt is an avid hunter, so who knows... maybe it was his idea, or even his knife.

    Anyway, can anyone ID it? It looks familiar to me, but I'm drawing a complete blank.
    Definitely a custom. Scales remind me of Blind Horse. Pins don't look right for them though.

    Just wanted to kind of clear the air about the knife Chris Pratt has on his belt in the photos. A friend of mine made the knife. I was in his shop often during the month or so that he was working on it. His name is Steve Auvenshine from Kentucky. He has been making knives for longer than the 20 years that I have known him. He has also worked for the movie industry as an ARMORER and prop maker. You can check him out on IMDB. He has never had a website but if you google "Steve Auvenshine knives" you can see some of his work. Busse (swamp rat knives) may have a piece in the movie but it's not that one.
    Sorry to rattle on so much, I posted this same message on another thread. Hope that's ok.

    I don't want to push this off topic but I really like the sheath!

    Do you know by any chance the specifications of the knife. Mainly just the length of blade and handle. I would guess around 8 inches, but I could be wrong.

    Thank you for the input! :thumbup:

    My wife and i just watched that clip on youtube and she asked me what knife it was, I responded, "looks like a custom" - glad to now know who the maker is :thumbup: Any more images showing the blade? And I agree with a post above, nice sheath, looks like magnetic retention...?

    How does the knife stay in the sheath?

    Thank you! It was made by Dragon Leatherworks.

    It was fitted to the knife, so retention was perfect. :)

    It's gotta be long enough to pierce through an Indominus Rex!

    Indeed, personally I never go under 10 inches when facing dinosaurs.

    looks like a stick tang. The only way I can see the retention system really working is if the leather was form fitted into the grove before the blade starts.

    Does anybody have a picture or a link to a picture of the blade of the knife, I have tried googling everything I can think of but I cant find an image of the actual blade anywhere. Any help would be awesome!

    This is the best that I can find with an outline and profile of the blade edge and thickness...Single Edge, high polish and trailing point? Hunter style with a thick spine?

    Just image searched the name, myself. Steve seems to like "Gaucho knives", and his work is very clean.

    Most of all, I'm glad that the producers of Jurassic world took the time to find a knifemaker, instead of just picking something off the shelf at a hardware store and saying "good enough".

    Especially a knifemaker who isn't well known. This needs to happen more often, and not just with knives!

    Looks like more of a clip point to me, but a rather pointy/sweeping one at that. Nice, classic hunter. A very fitting choice.

    How frequently do you remove Dinosaur parts from nearly indestructible globe rides to have formed that opinion? :rolleyes:

    The movie was surprisingly good, mostly because the last few Jurassic Park movies have been surprisingly bad. This one definitely rivals the first one
