James Franco's late 'Deuces Wild' co-star, Brad Renfro, has been quite the muse lately, even inspiring this limited edition Brad Renfro Forever Switchblade. Keeping in mind that he recently had Renfro's name carved into his arm, Franco must have really loved and respected his fellow actor.

In a continued effort to keep Brad Renfro's memory alive after his untimely death at 25 of a heroin overdose, the Brad Renfro Forever Switchblade was designed in collaboration with LATAMA Italian cutlery and San Francisco’s own Moon Editions.

Priced at $650, only 100 signed editions exist. Available in the fall, the Brad Renfro Forever Switchblade measure 11 inches when fully opened and boasts a swivel bolster as well as a black and white brazilian horn handle. For that price, though, I have to wonder if proceeds are going to charity. Stats for Celebratory Celebrity Knives Trending: Older & Mild
