Gripping the ‘Heartstopper “ … you just don’t turn it off” #dietmarpohl @dietmarpohl #pohl force
The pair of knives the titular Rambo character, played by Sylvester Stallone, will use in the fifth Rambo movie is no longer a secret. Rambo will use the “Heartstopper,” made by Dietmar Pohl, of Pohl Force in Germany, as his “big one.” Pohl also made a “small knife” Rambo will use.
Pohl joins Jimmy Lile (First Blood, First Blood: Part 2) and Gil Hibben (Rambo III, Rambo) as the knifemakers selected to supply the movie franchise’s iconic knives.
The fifth movie is set to release in fall 2019 as Rambo V: Last Blood, and will be set in Mexico. To date, the only image of the knife is what Stallone posted on his Instagram page. Filming began “a few weeks ago,” according to the Pohl Facebook page.
In a statement, translated from German, Pohl couldn’t say much more beyond being excited.
“RAMBO V – We’re very happy to be part of it! A very special project for Dietmar Pohl and the Pohl Force team.
“With the official posting from Sylvester Stallone on Instagram it became public that Dietmar Pohl (knife designer & CEO of Pohl Force Knives) designed the knives for the Rambo V movie.
“Now we’d like to confirm the cooperation. Because the film production started only a few weeks ago and the movie start is announced for autumn 2019 we ask you to understand that we cannot provide any further information and details on the knives at this time.”
This isn’t the first time Hollywood tapped Pohl’s knives. He provided blades for Hunter Killer, released Oct. 26, 2018 and starring Gerard Butler. Here’s Pohl on the set of that movie:
