The knife wielded by Paul Hogan in Crocodile Dundee is up for auction at $7,600 (GBP4,000) to $15,200 (GBP8,000) in June (05).

The movie memorabilia featured prominently in the smash 1986 movie and is principally remembered by film lovers for the moment Hogan's MICK DUNDEE dismisses a mugger with the line, "That's not a knife - this is a knife."

However, for on-set safety purposes the blade - to be auctioned on 19 June - is made of mock aluminium.

A spokesman for the Sydney, Australia, branch of auctioneers BONHAMS + GOODMAN says, "This is the perfect opportunity to obtain a piece of cinematic history."
