James Franco: limited edition switchblade

Availability: Sold Out

Quick Overview

Custom-built limited edition switchblade
Edition of 100
Edition cards are numbered, dated, and signed by James Franco
Released summer 2012

Produced in collaboration with James Franco as an homage to his late friend and fellow actor Brad Renfro, this limited edition switchblade references Deuces Wild, the 2002 boy gang film that starred both Franco and Renfro.  Following Renfro’s untimely (and under-acknowledged) passing, Franco produced a tribute film, Brad Renfro Forever, which documents legendary LA tattoo artist Mark Mahoney carving “BRAD” into Franco’s arm with a switchblade.  

This hand-built switchblade was crafted by the legendary Italian cutlery manufacturer LATAMA and Walt Halucha. When fully opened, the knife measures 11 inches and reads “Brad Renfro” in rainbow letters across the side and “FOREVER” in caps across the blade. It has a swivel bolster and black & white Brazilian horn handle. Each blade was numbered at the factory in Italy, then laser etched and hand painted by Moon Editions here in SF.

Each switchblade comes with an edition card that has been numbered, dated, and signed by James Franco.  The card and blade fit inside a custom-made wooden case. Instructions are included.
