    I find myself doing this all the time. I am about 75% or more when it comes to movies & TV because I have noticed them customizing sometimes.

    On another thought though I can tell a knife by the clip in person almost 90% of the time. I love to do it, its like a game.

    The AA-12 is an awesome shotgun, specially with the FRAG-12 (mini warhead) rounds.

    Who ever notices any edc items or gadgets that are on Tv or in the movies? For example the other day of NCIS:Special Victims they arrested a guy carrying a BM griptillian. Anybody ever notice anything like that, lets here it.

    Was discussing this with a friend earlier as well as on Spyderco Forums...there was an episode of Auction Hunters last night where Allen was using a yellow Spyderco Spyderhawk (at least that's what it looked like) at one point while cleaning out a unit. Then, earlier today I was watching an episode of Man vs. Food and Adam used a Paramilitary to shuck an oyster.

    I always notice situations in movies where simple EDC items would have saved the day. In the movie Devil (2010) none of the "people" (WINK WINK) locked in the elevator had a Pen,Flashlight, or Pocket knife on them. The old lady had pepper spray but it was expired for more than a decade for some weird reason. Divine intervention or a simple case of everyday unpreparedness?

    1995 film, "Sudden Death." (Basically, "Die hard" inside a hockey stadium. There were a ton of these types of films cranked out by Hollywood after the enormous success of the original "Die Hard" movie. Often, all that was changed was the location and the motivation of the terrorists. That was pretty much it.)

    In one scene, our hero Van Damme finds one of the bombs. He disarms it by using his all-stainless steel Spyderco Standard model to carefully cut the wires. The knife is clearly visible in the scene. It was obviously his character's EDC knife. (Nowadays, he'd likely be kicked out for having a knife on him while inside the stadium.)

    It's either NCIS, NCIS: Los Angeles, Law and Order:SVU.

    I'm not listing all the CSIs out there.

    Remember Rule #9: Never go anywhere without a knife.

    I was watching a Nat Geo show about the Mongols and Hell's Angels biker gangs and a big brawl they had in Laughlin, NV.
    The police had all the knives they confiscated laid out and I was going "Spydie, BM, Spydie, KABAR(***!), Buck, Gerber".

    In case any of you have never seen it...http://www.imfdb.org/wiki/Main_Page Going to this page will cost you a few hours.
