    I'm curious to know what type of blade actor Chris Platt uses in the hit film: Jurassic World(2015). I saw the action film yesterday in 3D IMAX & the main character uses a small fixed blade knife that looks like either a Boker Ridgeback or Coye Forerunner :confused: .
    No listing is posted for the blade on www.imfdb.org yet.

    Coye Knives were a hotly debated topic here in 2014 & I'm not asking if they are worth the $$$ or how good the brand is. It's just to see if the Jurassic World knife is the same model.

    BTW; I already know the Boker Ridgeback is a authorized Coye Knives design.

    Rusty

    Nope. The 3 finger Coye is micarta with carving and finger choils that has 2 large screws.

    The knife carried by the main character is a full grip, wood (tiger maple) and has 3 mosaic pins.

    The belt knife is from Steve Auvenshine knives in KY and the leather is Dragon Leatherworks in Oak Ridge.

    Sales ...

    I'm sure those custom shops will be swamped with new orders after this film came out. :D

    The Chris Pratt character knife is slick. I'm not sure about the leather carrier.

    Another character(bad guy) looks like he has a floppy black leather case & black Ka-Bar blade, behind his back, :confused: .
    I think maybe the wardrobe or prop master said; "hey, should these guys have sidearms"? Then Steven Speilberg or some on set wag said; oh heavens no, they should carry big knives, yeah knives, that's cool but not threatening.
    Because parents shouldn't let young kids see anyone carrying a handgun then using it in a responsible way, :rolleyes: .

    Typical Hollywood idiocy. Wrong tool for the job, and the one's who think it's cool will buy them by the boat load (most will come from china).

    When facing dinosaurs or dragons one needs a sword. Geesh anyone who's read Grimm's Fairytales knows that.

    Custom knives ....

    I checked a few knife forums & did some research. The custom knife designed by the KY guy won't be on any websites or shops any time soon :rolleyes: .
    The maker is a prop maker & film industry insider. The leather holder may be for sale, but the exact same knife style is not yet out there.

    Mr. Auvenshine is a knifemaker so he'll not want to miss the opportunity on the demand for it. Considering that his knives are hand made and finished they won't show up fast. The other problem with the production knives is that the licensing will be from the studio for the non custom ones and we'll see if they put tiger maple on them or not and if they think there's enough interest to actually have them licensed and produced.

    Gil Hibben ....

    Custom knife maker Gil Hibben made a lot of $$$ with his Rambo & First Blood series blades.
    His designs were marketed and popular in the 1980s/1990s.
    From what I recall Hibben either had a dispute with Sly Stallone or the Rambo film producers over rights, knives, legal issues.
    It might have been resolved. I think Hibben made a new field knife for John Rambo in Rambo(2008) but I might be wrong.

    When I was a lower enlisted MP in the US armed forces, the term; Rambo knife was common. It meant any big blade or camp knife used for FTXs or deployments.

    The simple fact that it wasnt a Chinese ripoff prop makes me happy.

    Hello All,

    Dennis from Dragon Leatherworks here. Saw this thread show up on a keyword search, so I figured I would swing in and say hello, and also answer any questions about the work I did for JW.

    RustyShackleford commented about 3 posts up on the availability of the sheaths...they are available. As each is hand-fitted to provide perfect retention without straps of any sort, there is no worry with fitment or reteintion.

    Of course, you have to send me your knife to have it fitted, and I sent the knife back with the completed sheath when done. Right now, lead time is running two weeks after the knife arrives at the shop.

    Any other questions, feel free to PM, hit up the website and use the e-mail links there, or simply drop an email to [email protected]

    Again, thanks much for the interest in my work.

    Latsly, the knife is a custom by Steve Auvenshine. He's debating whether to have them commercially made. His contact info is also on my website.

    Thanks for the update ...

    Thanks Dennis for sitrep. :D
    I'd think with the huge success of Jurassic World, many product placement & custom made items would get a lot of new interest.

    I read that Pratt has signed for 2 more Jurassic motion pictures so this might be a extended job. :D

    Rusty
    PS: IMFdb.org lists Jurassic World but doesn't show your holder or Steve's custom blade for the film.

    As someone who works in film and on the movie in question;

    No, that's not how it happens. Actors have as much say as they want in blade selection. Many have custom knives made themselves for their character.

    DammitBoy,

    Either Rusty was making a poor joke that really didn't warrant any attention because no one took it seriously, didn't actually attend the movie, or he was ogling the knives and dinos so much he didn't notice all the guns in the movie.;)

    Imax 3d ...

    Sorry HSO,
    I saw it in all the IMAX 3D splendor, with my veteran discount :D .
    There are a bunch a cool firearms. I didn't want to mention any spoilers. :cool:

    I thought one 12ga was a Kel Tec KSG but alas the InGen trooper uses a big USAS shotgun. ;)

    If you haven't seen Jurassic World, check it out in the theater.

    Rusty
    PS; FWIW some of my recent remarks were edited or deleted. Why? Who knows...
