Auto in "Enemy of the State"

Oct 2, 1998
Anybody know what it is? Look closely when you see Will Smith get on the ferry. A guy takes out an auto to remove an electronic bug from Smith's shoe.

Lot's of action! Good flick.

I agree, that was a very good movie. Saw the knife and the first thing that came to mind was a Microtech. LUDT perhaps??? I don't know, the guy seemed to cover it up a lot.
It was a Benchmade Reflex (full-size I believe). They flashed the butt-end of the handle onscreen for a split-second which was the only giveaway. Christ, I really need help. Anybody know the name of a good 12-step program for knife knuts?

Just rented it. Rewound it several times on slow, drove my wife crazy, and saw that it is definitely an OTF w/a black, straight spine and partially serrated edge. It's not a HALO, I don't think. No holes. Blade looks like a MINI X-OLITE.

Great movie!

It's a Benchmade Reflex. I too thought it was an OTF until I about wore a hole in the tape rewinding it.
Just a positive note as far as movie autos, in "Seven" with Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman, Morgan, (a cop none the less), carried an auto. Classic Italian Stiletto type, but an auto none the less.
Another classic Italian stiletto in a classic movie, "Dirty Harry". Harry tapes one to his leg and his boss says something along the lines of "a cop shouldn't even know how to use one of those things". Harry ends up stabbing a psycho in the leg with it. Great movie!
