The Knives of James Bond

I Recently had a custom made replica of the flat throwing knife as seen in the MI6 standard equipment attaché’ case, developed by ‘Q-Branch’, for all agents in the field.

The knife is CNC machined out of stainless-steel with a hardness of 56-58 HRC which the hardness of many German knives. This steel helps the knife remain sharp and is easy to sharpen.

It was hand-finished by the addition of slab side black Micarta handles. Micarta is a brand name for composites of canvas, linen, fiberglass and other fabric in a thermosetting plastic.

This canvas reinforced phenolic material has both good mechanical and impact strength with a continuing operating temperature of 250 degrees Fahrenheit. It is a strong and durable material that tolerates extreme heat and cold, resists moisture, solvents and grease and just about any caustic substances imaginable. It also doesn’t become brittle with age.

Most Micarta-handled knives will outlast their owner’s lifespan…the handles simply won’t wear out and will stand up to anything a knife should be used for!

This magnificent replica of the screen-used prop was produced using measurements taken from one of the original knives made by Albert ‘Bert’ Luxford for the film.

The knife was finished by honing it to razor sharpness. This is not a toy replica and could easily be used to ‘Take out’ Red Grant…should you find yourself in that situation.

As I have stated in the past, I would love to obtain copies of the attache case
knives. I bought two resin copies from England but the size was so off that I
can not display them.

In keeping with knives used in Bond films...Here is one of the most highly desired Bond props used by Ursula Andress as Honey Ryder in 'DR. NO' the very first film on the adventures of Bond, James Bond.

The custom handmade replica has a solid Teak wood handle which is regarded as the best wood valued for its elegance and durability due to its unique properties to ward off dry rot. Mostly used in shipbuilding and the best furniture.

Solid brass is used for the handguard and ring retention stud. The top is constructed of black Micarta which is also known for its strength and durability.

The knife's doubled-edged stainless steel blade completes the look that makes this replica 'jump out' of the screen and into your collection.
Additionally, a custom made full leather sheath with brass retention rivets comes with the knife for added safety.
