alphabetized list of Switchblades in Films

Post by button_man »

Most of us have seen the list of switchblades in movies..... but I've never seen one in alphabetical order; the list is a jumble in which it can be difficult to find a specific film. I have alphabetized the list, and added "Epicenter" and "This Gun For Hire". I have also added small notations to a couple other films (under 'G' and 'H'). I'm sure that we would all be interested in any further additions or corrections that anyone might have ~

Here is a switchblade that claims to be James Dean's switchblade in the movie "Rebel Without a Cause". It is 13 inches long. They only used 11-inch knives in the movie and there is no documentation with this knife. It was listed for $25,000.00 and sold for $20,000.00. Someone got scammed in my opinion.

This issue was raised with the seller at the time. Of course that concern was blown off, dismissed out of hand. It was just a matter of opinion, he said. OK. Whoever bought that knife with no documentation, other than someone working for a prop house saying it was the knife, they kinda deserved to get screwed. Due Diligence Dew Dalliance

Thanks for the reply and info. "natcherly". "Matter of opinion", he said? To me, there is no opinion but facts. There is a scene where "Buzz" holds the knives together after the fight. They are clearly 11-inch knives. I am sure there were numerous switchblades props on the set, but this one for $25,000.00 is not the one in the movie.

Do you know what kind of scales are on Buzz's knife? They appear to be solid white and I don't recall seeing that on a 1950s stiletto.

Thanks, Panzerfaust. It appears to be all white to me also. Could it be a Coricama?

Real knives were used. It is obvious when you watch the movie. In the scene where Buzz sticks the tire. James Dean wore protection under his shirt and was cut on the ear while filming. Another auction company also claimed they had James' knife and it sold for $12,000. As far as the maker, we will not know. Here are some interesting links about the movie and the fight scene.
