007's original Black attaché case
As British as James Bond. Magnetism with film star looks. 007's briefcase could be yours...
We are famous for making bespoke luggage for Aston Martin owners - think Aston Martin and you cannot help but think James Bond. 007 is one of our customers too...
Q issued 007 with a range of explosive spy gadgetry. One of Bond's most memorable weapons was the black leather briefcase issued to him in "From Russia with Love".
Swaine Adeney Brigg made this case. Within its distinctive red skiver lining, the case hid 20 rounds of ammunition and gold coins, plus the flat throwing knives used to dispatch villain Red Grant aboard the Orient Express. The case also usefully hid a 0.25 caliber AR7 folding rifle with infrared sight. (Used by Bond to shoot down the SPECTRE helicopter pilot who was dropping grenades on him at the end of the film.)
You don't need to be Sean Connery to own 007's attaché. We offer the Q-Branch briefcase as standard issue to all of our customers. It's a must-have for collectors of James Bond memorabilia and 007 gadgets.
The case has no pockets in the lid, so is an open box inside. We will supply you with an exact replica of James Bond's case that we made for the Bond movie; any modifications you choose to make are down to your own imagination.
Most of our customers ask for a pocket here, a strap there. But we can, of course, accommodate more unusual requests from agents in the field. Often, just a small twist on a classic design can turn your attaché case into a real talking point.

Did you know?
- From Russia with Love (1963) is the second of the James Bond movies.
- It was the second Bond movie to star Sean Connery as Ian Fleming's fictional MI6 agent, from Fleming's 1957 novel of the same name.
- On board The Orient Express, James Bond offers to buy the villain Red Grant's last cigarette for 50 gold sovereigns, thus luring Grant to open his Swaine Adeney attaché case, which releases tear gas. In the ensuing struggle, Bond stabs Grant with the flat throwing knife hidden in the attaché case, and then strangles Grant with his own garrote.
- An attaché case is a box-style case made of leather (occasionally aluminium), stretched over a hinged frame that opens into two compartments. It was traditionally carried by an attaché, a diplomatic officer attached to an embassy or consulate official.
- Swaine Adeney Brigg launched its new Spring Collection 2009 on board The Orient Express
and nobody was stabbed or garroted!
