I've said this before, but people don't routinely own these sort of knives over here. After reading the last post I went to check on something that I vaguely remembered, and I was right: in the UK and Ireland eBay banned the sale of all knives and swords except cutlery back in 2009. Just thought I'd include this FYI:

Change to policy regarding sale of knives on eBay.co.uk and eBay.ie

I don't think this affects other internet sites, and you could buy one from a store if you are over 18. It is, however, illegal to sell flick knives, butterfly knives and disguised knives to any age.

i wonder why they did that?

To curb the sales of illegal knives, although it seems a bit over-the-top. It was the result of popular BBC consumer show 'Watchdog' buying knives that are illegal in the UK through the site. The BBC News article is here.

I guess I was still an impressionable kid (at 19 years old) when the Dukes first came out because I always carried around a knife on my belt just like Bo and Luke. At the time there really was no way to tell what brand of knife the Duke boys had so I didn't really care what I had......but you can bet if I would have known what they carried I would have had half a dozen of them!

great knife. i carry mine almost everywhere i can. if you dont mind me asking how much did you pay for it? i bought mine off ebay and spent $35.

I thought about getting one off ebay but never did....then I ended up at the knife factory in TN like I do every year and decided I couldn't live without it any longer so I paid $47.

That makes me think of the Rambo knife made by Jimmie Lile the Arkansas knifemaker. It cost about 700 bucks after the movie came out but is now worth ten times that.

They're making a limited run of 100 "Next Generation" First Blood knives if you're interested. Buy one at the bargain price of just $3500!

I have followed the string of discussion and to advise, Luke usually carried the Buck 110 Folding Hunter.  Bo usually carried the Buck Ranger 112.  I have compared the screen shots of closeups and definately saw the Ranger  used by Bo to cut free the ropes as he was in the Jeep scene of the Female Auto Parts wranglers.   Dont know if Bo and Luke used  other brand knives as well on the show. 

What happened to the knives after the show? Did  John and Tom get to keep the knives for memorabilia?

I know their knives get used quite a bit, but the first scene I remembered was Luke digging out Daisy's bullets from behind the target in 'Officer Daisy Duke'. The screengrab below is the best I could get - I didn't get to see the handle. If you look at the inset picture (where I've tweaked the levels a bit), it appears that the knife is made by Buck. Looking at their website the closest current product I could find is a model called 'Ranger' - check it out here.

I'm going to be away from my DVDs for a few days, so won't be able to look for any more until the start of next week. Maybe someone else will post pics in the meantime.

In my research I have found that the knife Bo and Luke use is a Buck 110 hunting knife.
