    "Cobra" Fixed Blade Warrior Combat Knife. Made by Herman J. Schneider, 13-1/4 inches in overall length with a 7-1/2 inch curved blade with a devil-horned skull emblem; used by the notorious "Night Slasher" [as portrayed by Brian Thompson] in "Cobra." Black handguard grip features 10 solid spikes. Contained in an un-related Hibben Knives soft carrying case. Excellent condition; only one ever made for film; Stallone would take it from Thompson and kept it safe during filming, commissioned by Stallone.

    "This is an incredible one-of-a-kind knife designed by Hall of Fame knife-maker, Herman Schneider. The design was a homage to the trench knives used in World War I which had a particularly brutal nature to their make-up. Herman updated it for a more modern, late 20th century look. At the end of shooting each day on the set of Cobra, I would take this knife out of Brian Thompson's hands so it didn't accidentally 'disappear.' We only had one and I was the guardian of the blade."
