    I can't express enough how much I dislike that "sharpening choil" not covering the plunge line.

    Dave, thanks. :thumbsup: I'm looking for one (I think it "wood" be fun :oops:) but the fixed blade is discontinued and, so far, no luck. :(

    I was hoping to not open up old wounds from this thread but you forced me to. After digging deep in the random boxes in my closet I found a couple relics from my prior "knife" collecting days[​IMG]
    The Kizer Sheepdog is only there as a size reference and is a VERY useful knife. On the fury there us a certain way you can flick it to make all 4 of the blades come out at once. When I was little this was the coolest thing ever. The scales on it were thin "metal" and broke off over the years https://i.imgur.com/DH2056a.mp4



    You can kick me off of BF now

    Gonna throw this one in with a caveat:

    The actual knife design is kinda badass - at least in the looks department. I love that big heavy blade and blunt tip.

    But even if it was a really useful knife design (would be a decent jungle clearer), most likely the only ones that are actually made are pot metal and junk. That's my guess anyway. I could be very wrong.

    Are you kidding? That is a vicious weapon. I saw one of those fly around a room and take out about 20 vampires. Though that may have been a movie trick..... :D
    Those are good for teaching groups like Cub Scouts the ways to safely handle a knife.

    Here's another candidate, though I would say more "useless features ON a knife":

    Not quite sure what to make of the two little things that fold up kind of like a hand guard, but having seen one of these you have to fold them out individually. That said the link below seems to suggest that the company itself (Mykel Hawke knives) stands behind their stuff:

    I'd say broken.

    Though it looks like someone was making a shiv out of some steel laying around.

    I was joking... The only thing that makes it "useless" is the price.

    Nothing to be ashamed about. We were all once just kids.

    Except Marcinek; Marci was never a kid. :p Also, those knives are ALL useful; the "weird" two , with one in each hand, would scare off any non-firearm holding mugger! :thumbsup:

    Cool. I'd read that before but had forgotten it.

    I'm not sure how good that design would actually be in the real world, but it does look cool as hell. Maybe United Cutlery makes decent stuff but I don't think I could take myself seriously carrying a "movie reproduction knife" anyway. But I think United Cutlery stuff is a bit better than the average "movie reproduction" crap out there.

    Hell - who am I kidding? I don't take myself seriously anyway!

    :D:p (That's an inside joke I stumbled upon here)

    Looks like somebody broke the crap out of that thing and then tried to weld it back together - poorly!

    Saharan Sub Sandwich Saber. Main part is for slicing the bread and bologna. Drop point is handy for dipping into and spreading mustard or mayo.

    I just remembered a couple more that I have. These Mantis rings are made out of something so soft it won't take an edge. I've seen others that look like they could actually take an edge, but these almost look cast.

    And this pen knife is amazing. I have others that are like little daggers. But this mean little thing is pseudo JaggedKommando with a twisted tri-edge. Best three bucks I ever spent. :D Wait, that came out wrong. Should have said, this is the result of three bucks I spent.

    Any safe queen is a useless knife. A tool is not a tool unless it is used.
