  • In my possession is an original 1970’s “007” folding knife reportedly to be the all-time most confiscated weapon by the NYPD. Chances are if you were mugged in NYC in the 70’s this is what was sticking in your back as your wallet was being nicked.  The knife was a cheap novelty item that could be found at your local corner candy shop for under $5 but with a 10” open length and a 4.25” blade this became the weapon of choice on the streets.  As legend has it when Sid Vicious moved to NY in 1978 he saw Dee Dee Ramone in possession of a 007 and immediately headed up to Times Square and bought 2 of them. He actually purchased the Jaguar, a black handled version of the 007 which was later determined to be the weapon that killed Nancy Spungen as evidenced in the crime scene photos taken in room 101 at the Chelsea Hotel where the couple had been living.  Other knockoff brands include the Romo, the Valor and the Guardian. As stricter laws were put into place it became illegal to carry a knife with more than a 4 inch blade so by the early 80’s the 007 all but disappeared. I check eBay every so often to see if any pop up for sale and for such a mass market item I thought there would be tons of cheap ones to be found, not the case. I do come across some cheaply made knock offs and some of the secondary brands I mentioned above, but never an original 007.  Luckily I have friends who can identify these things in a pile of junk and are thoughtful enough to know that I appreciate these artifacts. It was really cool to have one in my hand and flick it open but other than a curiosity this is not something I collect and I’m sure there are people out there who would really love to have this in their collection and due to its rarity probably can’t get their hands on an original one so I’m putting this up for auction on eBay later today 12/2 and will add the link here. (Dude, relax 50/50 of the net!) Share with your weirdo friends. Peace.  #007knife #rareknife #collectables #sidandnancy #sidvicious #nypd #70snyc #nychistory #notorious #chelseahotel #knifecollector #rareweapons #streetculture #4inchblade #deathwish
