Only yesterday I posted a tweet wondering if there is a prop replica of Dexter’s weapons. The answer to that is a resounding no, at least not officially.
However, if you’re really really keen, and really really cashed up, that doesn’t mean you can’t unofficially create a replica of Dexter’s famous kill bag and tools.
A user over at TheRPF.com by the very apt nickname of Dark Passenger has painstakingly (and much to our appreciation) examined screen-shots from Showtime’s hit show to try and put together a list of the items you’d need to buy in order to create your own prop replica of Dexter’s Kill Bag and the weapons in it.
See the actual prop in this on-set presentation (at the 0.57 mark):
Note that replicating Dexter’s kill bag and tools is a little easier said than done. Aside from the fact that to collect each knife in it adds up to quite a few dollars, there are also a few irregularities that exist from season to season that make creating an exact replica that much more difficult. One example is the fact that Dexter’s kill bag hasn’t always been identical. It changes from season 1 to the one he uses now. The order in which his knives are put in his bag has changed at times too.
Another difficulty is that Dexter’s kill knife is actually a custom prop made for the series, while one of his knives appears to be a modified commercially available scapula. Still, thanks to the efforts of a few TheRPF.com users (specific mention to DarkPassenger and DrewSmith007), die-hard prop replica fans can now replicate Dexter’s bag of tricks with close to 100% accuracy.
So let’s get to it. Here’s the list Dark Passenger has created, with links to where you can view or buy the item, to help you build your custom Dexter kill bag prop replica.
