I want one, but I may wait for the forthcoming OdoKen
- a shape-shifting knife that is really an alien living creature.
He (Or she? We're not sure if shape-shifters have gender or not) weighs a few ounces, and has the intelligence and loyalty of a golden retriever. Propery trained, with exposure to knife shows, martial arts videos, and the Food Channel, he can assume an edge hardness of about RC80, and simulate anything from an X-Acto knife to chef's knife to a medium size Bowie from your favorite ABS Master Smith, sense the appropriate shape from your situation, and disguise himself as something soft and harmless when he feels the presence of a metal detector or x-ray. Repeated exposure to x-rays is bad for his long-term health, so you should keep him on your person at security checkpoints.
