Colonel Jacques Bouvar's (Bob Simmons) throwing knife from Terence Young's Bond movie Thunderball. Colonel Bouvar used his throwing knife to pin James Bond's (Sean Connery) sleeve to a wooden cabinet during the pre-credits sequence. The knife comes from the personal collection of renowned special effects technician Bert Luxford.

The knife is made of steel with a yellow plastic handle. It is accompanied by a still from the film, signed by Luxford, who also explains its use in the film. The knife has some wear from production use and age, including scuffing and tarnishing to the blade. Parts of the plastic handle have come away, and one side features glue residue from where the knife was previously displayed in a frame. Dimensions: 18.5 cm x 0.5 cm x 3 cm (11¼" x¼" x 1¼")

Estimate: £7,500 - 9,500 M
