    Necro bump to look at swords and stuff. One of my recent folly buys was one of the JP Hrisoulas daggers. He moved!

    Blacksmith: What you want?
    Customer: make me a sword that's convenient to carry, but if it fails it's really gonna wreck my day.
    Blacksmith: Say no more, fam.

    Honestly, that is really cool. I bet it opens with a satisfying thwack. Somewhere, I have one of those super cheap garbage folding Bowies of similar design I bought at a flea market 30 years ago. The concept is interesting. I'd love to mess around with one.
