Gerber 06 Automatic Knife S30V Drop Point
M (Ralph Fiennes) gives James Bond (Daniel Craig) a Gerber 06 Automatic S30V Drop Point knife in SPECTRE.
M meets Bond at the Hildebrand safe house, and he takes out several weapons out of the brown J.Crew Abingdon Weekender waxed cotton bag. Besides a Walther PPK, Bond also takes the Gerber automatic knife, which he later uses to cut the cords with which Madeleine Swann is held in the MI6 building.
The Gerber 06 Auto, made in the USA, is an automatic knife (also called ‘switchblades’ or ‘flick knives’) - where the blade is hidden inside the handle and shoots out when a button is pressed. In this case, an oversized button opens the blade via a torsion spring that keeps constant tension on the blade. To prevent the knife from opening or closing accidentally, a 'lock' button locks the blade in both the open and closed positions.
The 06 Automatic is available with different blades and handles.
Blade variations are the Drop Point (rounded edge) or Tanto (a more straight angeled edge blade, see image).
It looks like M and Bond have the black Drop Point blade, model number 30-000377.
The blade is finished in a tactical dull black finish and is made from S30V stainless steel and is 3.7" (9.4 cm) in length. The rear half of the blade’s edge is serrated.
The handle is made from hard anodized 6061-T6 machined aluminum, and comes in a smooth aluminum or textured aluminum version. A belt-clip is attached to the handle with three screws, which can also be seen in the screenshot of the knife in the film.
The overall length of the knife is 8.5" (21.6 cm), closed length: 4.8" (12.2 cm), blade length 3.8" (9.6 cm). The knife weighs 6.30 oz (180 gram).
This model knife has been discontinued by Gerber, but can still be found at some American (online) stores for approximately $150.
Note that automatic knifes like this one are illegal in many countries. But if you want almost the same knife in one of those countries, you could consider the Gerber 06 Manual folding knife (thanks to asp9mm for the tip).
