    If my memory serves, it was one of those ridiculously large cheap Pakistan folders that are sold by Frost Cutlery and had those funky looking "pakkawood" scales.

    I don't recall a folder being used. I did, however, find this interesting, if off topic, article from 2005:

    The knife wielded by PAUL HOGAN in CROCODILE DUNDEE is up for auction at $7,600 (GBP4,000) to $15,200 (GBP8,000) in June (05).

    The movie memorabilia featured prominently in the smash 1986 movie and is principally remembered by film lovers for the moment Hogan's MICK DUNDEE dismisses a mugger with the line, "That's not a knife - this is a knife."

    However, for on-set safety purposes the blade - to be auctioned on 19 June - is made of mock aluminium.

    A spokesman for the Sydney, Australia, branch of auctioneers BONHAMS + GOODMAN says, "This is the perfect opportunity to obtain a piece of cinematic history."

    "Mock" aluminum?

    -----------------
    That's a knife, but it's not the knife. One of the best-known props in Australian filmmaking history is set to go under the hammer. But, as Mick Dundee would say, it's not quite fair dinkum.

    The knife up for sale is an aluminium replica of the steel blade famously wielded by Paul Hogan in Crocodile Dundee's famous "That's not a knife" scene.

    There are only two versions of the steel blade in Australia - one owned by Hogan and the other owned by Crocodile Dundee writer and producer John Cornell. A third blade was given to a film executive in Los Angeles.

    However, there were a number of aluminium and rubber replicas made and used during filming. And a copy of the knife made and signed by the film's armourer sold for almost $50,000 at an auction in London two years ago.

    Cornell, who rose to fame as Hogan's sidekick Strop on The Paul Hogan Show before producing Crocodile Dundee, Australia's biggest-grossing film, said "a couple" of aluminium knives were made for Crocodile Dundee and Crocodile Dundee II. "It would be the most important prop in Australian filmmaking," he said.

    But Cornell, who now owns Byron Bay's Beach Hotel with his wife, Delvene Delaney, said he and Hogan would never part ways with their steel originals. "I am not selling mine and Hoges is not selling his," he said.

    Hogan's steel blade was used in the scene where Mick Dundee foiled knife-wielding New York muggers by producing the weapon and delivering the line, "That's not a knife . . . this is a knife."

    The replica will be auctioned by Bonhams & Goodman in Sydney on June 19.

    It was in the 3rd movie, "Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles", the scene where he took his son to Universal Studios. When they were "attacked" on a ride by a big anamatronic Python, he rammed it through it's head.

    I have no idea, as to why your pic does not show other than it might be a glitch.

    I still think the best classic bowie is Randall's #12 confederate: (11" blade)...

    [​IMG]

    or, the 13" Raymond Thorp version of the model 12

    The best Dundee Bowie reproduction is by Earl Blackmore - complete with kangaroo lace handle and hornback crocodile sheath. Absolutely stunning! :thumbsup:
