Former 007, Pierce Brosnan Tries & Fails to Board Plane with 10-Inch Bowie

Yesterday we reported the story about a camper who landed himself in hot water for boarding an airplane with a stash of knives and more. Apparently, actor Pierce Brosnan doesn’t read KnifeNews, because the UK media are reporting he was involved in a TSA incident soon after our report.

Brosnan, best known for playing the role of James Bond was stopped by TSA officials in Vermont after they discovered he was trying to board the plane with a 10 inch bowie knife.

TSA said the actor was allowed to continue on his journey after the incident was resolved. The BBC reported that Brosnan was angry and embarrassed when they took his knife away.

Neither Brosnan nor his publicist would comment on the incident, including whether the knife was a Cold Steel, KA-BAR, SOG, Ontario or custom.
