New Survey Topic: Worst Names for Knives

Oct 3, 1998
Okay, here are the rules: They have to be actual names for actual knives. You may consider both semantics and euphony as criteria.

I'll get you started.

1. Appogee.

2. Kershaw Wild Wild Turkey

In the interest of being concise, I submit the following.

All (insert third world country of your choice) made knives, both folding and fixed, with names like "the Violator" or "the Perpetrator"
Violent names will most likely show up in this thread but one of the worst, IMHO, is Civillian. The knife just looks to intimidating. I agree with the concept and the info letter that comes with it. But James Mattis has this one nailed. It is the perfect mushroom cultivator!

Kershaws Wild Wild Turkey. In the words of Jerry Seinfeld, "What's up with that?"
I've ranted this rant before, but I'll nominate the REKAT Hobbit Warrior.

No self-respecting Hobbit would own one, though, in Lord of the Rings, a Hobbit did borrow one like it from a dead Orc in an emergency, for rope cutting.

First, Hobbits were very unwarlike, and generally didn't own purpose-built weapons, though they could do considerable damage with farm tools and hunting bows if need be. And, in Tolkein's universe, there were established edged weapon prejudices. A curved black blade with teeth was a bad guy weapon. A curved black blade with teeth, bearing an eye logo, would have been issued to Orcs of the Dark Tower.



Never like that name for a knife. I say that since I use mine everyday

Would have preferred a more masculine name like the "Little Ripper" or something.

Greg Mete
Kodiak Alaska
The Appogee :O
BM 350? is that even a name?
Cold Steel Hai Hocho
CRKAT Big Sky hunters

CS Desperado

Might as well call it the "Cold Steel Fugitive From Justice" or the "Cold Steel Wanted Criminal"

Clay Fleischer

"10,000 Lemmings Can't Be Wrong!"
Congress is the name of a pattern not a brand exclusivly Case.The name came about back in the late 1800's.The pattern is a reverse curve handle usually with 4 blades.Good for a gentlemen's knife or whittler.Hope this clears up any confusion.
How about the Master of defense series.High priced knives with Cheap logo Master of Defense plastered on the steel.Cops and Judges must love those.
Strut-n-Cut (Reminds me of H.R. Puff 'n Stuff. Remeber that T.V. Show?)

From Greco Knives: the "Hatch-It". (Not something this chicken would want to sit on.)

"Wicked Knives" and "Li'l Pecker". (Why call attention to the fact, in either case?)

I'm sure I'll think of more.
LOL this is a great thread, got me laughing hard. Yeah, Wild Wild Turkey, WTF is that hehe. Might just as well have called it "Horny Horny Toad".

Ladybug isn't so bad, glad they didn't call it Cockroach

And Benchmade has decided to call 3 different knives "Mel Pardue" hehe

Genesis isn't bad, maybe EDI should call their next knife "The Exodus", however their last knife would be "The Apocalypse", but that better be one mother of a knife Will

And Gerber with "Magnum" and "Stallion", do these scream "I feel inadequate" ?

I I Have have to to agree agree with with Wild Wild Wild Wild Turkey Turkey
I have held the name "Gator" in low regard, along with "Pro-Venetator", "Armed Forces Only", and most anything that Gil Hibben has named his knives.

Off in search of Knirvana....yek

I like the name Wild Wild Turkey
I really haven't heard of a knife that made me think "What a STUPID name", but I guess Ladybug is pretty close. Why not call it "Bug" instead...
