Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, released around Christmas 2017, might’ve slipped under the radar for film-savvy knife enthusiasts. However, the movie marks yet another contribution by Kentucky knifemaker Steve Auvenshine to the prop departments of Hollywood.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, portraying Dr. Smolder Bravestone, carries a fixed blade in a sheath on his right hip throughout the movie.

Auvenshine, who also made knives for the Jurassic World movies, noted how the actor’s size warped the perception of the knife on screen.

“It’s a beast. Weighs almost two pounds. About 20 inches OAL. Dwayne Johnson, ‘The Rock,’ makes it look pretty normal!” Auvenshine wrote on his Facebook page.
