    What folding lockback knife would James Bond carry?

    A QUEEN, of course!

    Oh wait, I forgot about James Bond with his exclusive connections. He would probably have the ZT OTF that never made it to market, an Q would fix it up to actually work.

    That soe dagger is a great option, I think that if a lockback is too slow then he'd just go with a dagger like this.
    Maybe he should also have a an oss / soe thumb dagger or a small lapel version of a Fred parrin
    lagriffe. He may even wear a shoe with a dagger hidden in its sole. there's a website with pictures of the dagger you pictured as well as many other ww2 oss , soe, and French resistance clandestine blades and tools. I think he would probably be able to to have his pick of any of them .

    Fairbairn-Sykes, horizontal, back of belt.

    Kershaw 1993-2. Matches the PPK perfectly: Elegantly simple, discrete yet deadly when needed.

    Here are some of the knives used in the movies. i would say the movie producers are not knife experts in the least.

    Gerber 06 Automatic Knife S30V Drop Point
    M (Ralph Fiennes) gives James Bond (Daniel Craig) a Gerber 06 Automatic S30V Drop Point knife in SPECTRE.

    Böker Speed Lock II
    In the movie Die Another Day, Jinx (played by Halle Berry) carries a Böker Speed Lock II knife. The knife can be seen when she cuts some fruit in the bed after making love to Bond.

    Masters of Defense Harkins Triton
    In Quantum of Solace a Masters of Defense (MOD) Harkins Triton Out-The-Front automatic knife can be seen. The knife is used by a bad guy attacking Bond.

    I wish. No it's not mine.

    It's a SOE large lapel knife. Something Q would have in his stores no doubt.

    Gerber Applegate Fairbairn of course it would be the auto version. The Fairbairn in Applegate Fairbairn is William Fairbairn a member of the british royal marines who developed hand to hand combat techniques during WWII, utilizing this style knife. Modern bonds would use a Microtech Trooden

    "Bond" originally carried a PPK in .32 ACP (after "Q" forced him to give up his Beretta .25). I feel that Bond would have carried the SOE "lapel dagger" that has been illustrated.

    It should be noted that, in Flemmings novels, Bond never carried a Walther PPK in 9mm Kurz (.380 ACP or 9 x 17 Browning). The movies were wrong!

    I agree he would carry a slim light auto of some sort. But would have to be light and slim to fit in his light grey suit.

    As far as a fixed blade. Where would he put it?

    So if the novel version of James bond carried a .32 caliber instead of a .380 then that means he was even more minimalist.

    So what knife would he carry?

    After reviewing this thread I would like to think the modern version James Bond would carry something light (possibly carbon fiber) and OTF knife. Something around 3 oz .to 3.5 oz to carry in his light weight slacks and something that does not print and scream "KNIFE".

    It would have to be a knife that is easy to conceal like his gun in his chamois holster.

    Yah . . . and I recently rewatched ALL of the pre Daniel Craig Bonds just before Christmas so . . .
    I must know . . . right ? ;) :) (I know, I know Mr Craig comes the closest to the Bond in the Books (not looks) . . . however after he flipped the Aston Martin in the first five seconds out of the parking lot . . . well for that reason and others I just can't see him as Bond).

    And speaking of seeing Bond . . . I can only see him with a Cold Steel Spike. Terribly unsophisticated of me . . . . but there it is.

    Something I would never dreeeeaaaaam of owning but then I don't hang off buildings by a shoe lace with a woman around my neck anchored only by my knife . . . well . . . I mean . . . I HAVE DONE THAT . . . but don't tell The Chef . . . she might not see it in the proper light.

    Keep in mind it wasn't his choice. He was forced to carry it by M. It was an emphatic ORDER to carry it.

    Yes, M did force him to carry the Walther PPK in .32. He was also occasionally issued an S&W Model 10 (in .38 S&W, not Special) a .44 Magnum and a couple of other handguns.

    Read Ian Fleming's books then watch the pictures.

    I read the first one just this last year.
    I think I prefer the fun and fantasy of the older movies to the stark reality of the books.
    another thing ""missing"" from the Craig films, well the first one / I haven't seen the latter ones . . . could use a glaze of humor now and again.

    Casino Royal the film just depressed me.
    Not since the movie Def Con 4 have I felt like that after watching a film.

    My favorite Bond movie is still Dr. No.

    I read the book a couple times also.

    I have owned several different Walter PPK's because when I was young I was enamored with James Bond films. Still can't believe it was 1962 when the first Bond film came out and I was only 3 years old. Was so ahead of its time.

    Difference between the old and new Bond. The one on the right used steroids to get in shape for the film. The one on the left did not. Connery wins hands down!

    To be honest they look like they have the same body type, but Craig has less body fat. Connery is Bond though so not sure there is even a comparison to be made. (In terms of who you think of when you think of James Bond.)

    I agree with whoever posted the lion steel, whatever Bond carried would have to be 'sexy' if you know what I mean.

    Why not one of the classy Spyderco's? Good looks, one hand opening.
