    Limb manipulation in Knife Combat should be secondary to slash/counter slash and stick. A knife like this misses the point completely. Not to mention the fact using this knife as personal tool seems ridiculous.

    My whole mindset when it comes to edged weapons is thus:

    1. Any edged weapon is better than none
    2. If you're going to rely on edged weapons (any style/design), you need to train.
    3. If you think knives are retarded; you should still train in their usage/defense.
    4. If you're going to carry one...might as well carry 2-3.
    5. If you're from the "School of #3", I really need to share some pics and real-life anecdotes of why you are the actual retard and that you need to give a lot of respect to any edged weapon.

    That thing looks like a fishing tool "gone bad"---however; until you have seen whatever form/style of fighting that it was designed around (or its actual designed application), I'd withhold immediate judgment on it.

    PS> If I saw you with something like that; I too would think that you were either

    a) A Klingon
    b) "That guy"

    Klingon warriors have been using those to devastating effect for centuries.

    In the real world however...

    i like rope handles........

    other than that, it looks gayer than sirc's porno collection.

    the only people i could see buying that POS are "modern" ninjers, and airsoft larpers gone full retard.

    Would be pretty easy to test out either buy the trainer or get hold of a y shaped peice of wood and see if you can get more hits on a guy than with a normal shaped knife.

    I think that would become a cut yourself knife though.

    I did have a google look and couldn't see any sparring just phil elmore doing really slow drills

    Things I've used a knife as while deployed:

    Hammer
    Chisel
    Prybar
    Stake to help me get my footing back
    Among other things
    Oddly enough, I've cut plenty of things with multiple knives, but not a single one of them was a person

    Knives are tools, first and foremost. This "knife" is not practical for anything.

    yeah, but that's because you're a ranger and not a green beret like rambo was. if you were like rambo, you would use your gigantic penis envy knife to stab people.

    or maybe i'm wrong and i should feel lucky that more than one military guy has chimed in about knives on this thread.....

    "Circumcising the wrist, removing his weapon hand."

    And... right. What does he think the thing is, a lightsaber? I don't think this thing has the mass or is anywhere near sharp enough to sever the bones of the wrist just by pivoting around it like that. Additionally, a more conventional fighting knife can be used to do everything he shows in this video with the exception of actually catching a wrist on the blade. Of course doing that requires those nice big telegraphed movements we all love so much.

    My biggest problem with it is this: It looks like blade on blade contact to the outer edges would channel a blade directly into your hand. Other problems are the chisel grind and the fact that it must be horrible tip heavy due to its shape. The chisel grind issue is a bit of an antiquated one, I admit. It used to be that a chisel grind was the mark of a low-quality knife and that stigma has never left me, despite manufacturers like Emerson using chisel grinds. But whatever. I certainly won't be buying it.

    If I take a bowie, it'll stay in my assault pack. Biggest knife I carried on any deployment had a 6" blade and it was more than enough. Too big and you won't want to carry it. If you're stuck on a FOB, there's no real occasion to use it. Big knives are cool, and I like them a lot, but there's an upper limit of practicality in the real world.
