    Lots of Japanese samurai steel and swordplay in the Charles Bronson 1971 western Red Sun featuring the late, great Toshiro Mifune.

    Thanks. :) Given the appreciation of guns, knives, cars, rock, etc. it's pretty difficult to take a liking to Dean. So far from Kershaw I've only picked up their Funxion series but I intend to grab a Skyline and Blur, haven't fully decided on any others.

    That's pretty neat! I missed that last time I went through the past posts.

    Those are some nice knives to get! Well you also left out his eating habits (pie) and his snarky attitude.

    I watched Hard Rain this morning for the first time in a while. Great mix of action and disaster movie. Nothing like an armored truck robbery in the middle of a flood. I'd forgotten about the great scenes in it involving a Swiss Army knife. Not sure of the model, looked like it was a two-layer. The female lead, played by Minnie Driver, uses her SAK to undo some screws on a metal screen over a light fixture to break the male lead out of a jail cell that is about to be flooded. Then, in another scene where she is handcuffed to a railing and about to be attacked by a guy, she uses the SAK to kill the guy and then to unscrew the metal braces from the wooden railing so she can get higher to avoid drowning. Sure, it's typical semi-believable Hollywood stuff, but it's fun to watch. Plenty of guns (Did you know six shot revolvers could fire well over ten shots without being reloaded?!?) and old school incandescent flashlights were used as well, including a scene where the main character takes the head and tail off of his flashlight, shakes the batteries out, and uses the tube as a snorkel till he gets rescued.

    Two caught my eye recently, Gibbs had a zero tolerence with a stripey blade (tell me if you need me to cut down the technical jargon;))and the redoubtable ichabod crane pulled out a wood handled folder (buck maybe?) in last nights Sleepy Hollow.

    My fascination with this came about when watching Inspector Morse and Lewis pulled out a swiss army knife.

    Then, two more today...

    While watching Top Gear, I noticed Clarkson carried a Leatherman Wave while in Burma.

    I almost squealed, "IT'S A WAVE!!!" when I saw it.

    Then, while watching Hot Fuzz, This well used Opinel No. 8 popped up.

    It's so easy to identify Opinels...

    Post tools you've seen! +1 for screen caps.

    There's lots of flashlights being used in those "Storage" type tv shows.

    I'm a huge Mad Max fan, and in the newest movie (which is totally awesome BTW) his knife was either a Chris Reeve Pacific or the Shcrade copy of it.
    Also don't know if I mentioned it, but Andrew Zimmern on Bizzare Foods is a gear junkie.
    I've seen him use a Buck 110, Leatherman, SAK, Opinel, etc.
    And on his blog, he listed all the stuff he travels with, and it fits gear nut profile.

    I've been binge watching the HBO show "Dexter". In an early episode Batista pulls out a spyderco and later on when Dexter is with Lumen he pulls out a Benchmade. The more knife savvy members would probably be able to identify the models.
