It has been reported that Fehrman Knives will have several knives appearing in the upcoming feature film “The Expendables” (summer 2010). This no longer appears to be the case. It is now our understanding that no Fehrman Knives will be appearing in this film.

Here is the story as we understand it... Fehrman Knives was contacted in December 2008 by a company that provides props for movies and television about providing samples of our knives and tomahawks for an upcoming movie called “The Expendables”. We were informed that our samples were reviewed and two of our knives were selected for the film. Later we were also asked if we could design a custom knife for a specific character in the film. We designed a new knife and submitted samples and were informed that this new design was well received and was also chosen as the third of our knives to be used in the film. We created approximately 1/2 dozen of each blade, plus additional variations, and custom sheathing. Everything was shipped to meet a filming deadline in March 2009.

The representative of the prop company did make clear to us that they could not make any guarantees on how much "screen time" our knives would get, but our knives had been chosen for the film, and even custom designed for specific characters, so our understanding was that our knives would be used. To our knowledge, the only unknown was "how much" they would appear in the film, not "if" they would appear in the film.

After shipping all the knives, sheaths, etc. the last contact we had was that our knives were "performing well". Toward the end of 2009 and the early part of 2010 we began to show the new custom designed knife and let a few people know that some of our knives would appear in the film. Our knives were shown in Tactical Knives magazine and were reported as being in the film.

We were contacted by the prop company again on 03/26/2010 and informed that apparently, at the last minute, a decision had been made not to use our knives and that our knives would not be appearing in the film. On 03/29/2010 Fehrman Knives began making efforts on its website to clarify the situation with the new information we had received.

Although our knives have received attention by various sources as being in the film, we want to clarify again that, as of today (03/29/2010), and to our knowledge, our tools will not be featured in this film. We apologize to our customers and to those who have been inconvenienced by this mistake. Our goal is NOT to point fingers or shift blame, we simple want to make plain to our customers and to anyone else interested what the situation is currently and how the whole thing came about in the first place.

We regret any confusion this may have caused. If you have additional questions regarding this matter please send all inquiries to: FIERCETOOLS@FEHRMANKNIVES.COM

Respectfully,
Eric Fehrman

Well, that's certainly disappointing. :(

Were these knives & hawks sold to the prop company, or given in lieu for possible promotional benefit? Will they be or were they returned? If so, why not consider offering them at a discount to forum members? ;)

Sorry it did not work out as planned.

Eric,

They're crazy. Their loss.

Give me Dolph's phone number and I'll get that knife in some movie somewhere. :)

If you don't have his number then give me Stallone's number and I'll see what I can do.
:lol:

O that is no problem man.I already hate that movie.This movie has no story just random action and especially didn't like the knife action .How can you kill 10-15 guys alone while they are just watching your face and waiting for their turn to be killed by the hero.
