Lara Croft's (Angelina Jolie) stunt butterfly, bikini and medallion knives from Jan de Bont's action-adventure sequel Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life. Croft threw a butterfly knife into Chen Lo's (Simon Yam) chest; wore a knife on her right arm when she arrived on the boat at the beginning of the film, while wearing a bikini; and used a knife to recover the Cradle of Life medallion.
The set consists of four knives: a closed butterfly knife made of foam rubber; an open butterfly knife made of hardened rubber; Croft's bikini knife, also made of hardened rubber; and her medallion knife, made of resin. All the knives are hand painted to resemble metal, and the bikini and medallion knives come with leather and plastic sheaths respectively. The knives have some wear from production use and age, including scuffing and scratches to the paintwork. The blade of the medallion knife has cracked. Dimensions (open butterfly knife): 28 cm x 1 cm x 2.5 cm (11" x 1/2" x 1"); (medallion knife): 21 cm x 2 cm x 5 cm (8 1/4" x 3/4" x 2"); (bikini knife): 15 cm x 1 cm x 3 cm (6" x 1/2" x 1 1/4")
Estimate: £2,000 - 3,000 M
