    Well the Rolex back than was a working mans military watch that was not considered extremely expensive but yet rugged and classy. So the knife would have to be something in that class. Classy and rugged with a hint of military in it but yet still affordable for the average working man.

    He wouldn't carry any lock back folder.

    Something slim, elegant, fast, and stabby. An OTF fits the Bond image.

    Out from left field: A ZT0450CF. Light. Sleek. Strong. Stabby. Simple. Or an Al Mar Falcon Talon HD. And no, Al Mar does not make one for the rest of us. :(

    Sebenza. Small. Micarta inlays. Chisel ground.

    Or a British racing green Spyderco of some sort.

    In the early novels, Bond is quite a grunt in a suit so:

    Emerson Commander or CQC7.

    A Buck 110 because it's a classic, it's quality, and it can get the job done every time.

    Bond was all about the classics.

    I agree with an earlier post, bond would likely carry a fixed blade.

    Close, the Al Mar secret service model, same size and style, but with SS skeletal handles.

    Of course, it would also be some sort of rfid generator, a tazer and roofie dispenser.

    Just realized his pistol is a no go in the UK too. Guess he's reduced to colourful language.

    Something Bond would employ.

    Like I said, he's a 00. Double 0's would be exempt.

    About the only folder I can picture Bond with would be a switchblade made in Italy or maybe a CRK of some sort.

    An Emerson custom of some sort, simple, elegant but very very usable and effective knives.

    I must agree.
    James Bond is a secret agent. He may be suave and debonair in the Sean Connery-Walther PPK-Rolex-sense, but there needs to be a certain level of pragmatism when it comes to the tools he's going to carry to help him complete his mission(s)--even if they are cinematic. His objective/s and his environment will narrow down what knife he might carry (assuming he's not off the grid and/or globe-hopping, again), but odds are at least 8-to-1 it won't be a folding knife which requires two hands to open.
