    Jesus fuckin' christ. This **** is retarded.


    There is no reason for me to comment further, other then saying anyone who buys this deserves to have it used to remove their genitals.


    Seriously, though, everyone already said it. The only thing its useful for is layin' the kill to people. maybe. and there are already BETTER knives that do that...that can also do more.


    FML, people are stupid.

    OK, lets look at this objectively.

    After the rock, sharp stick, spear, and axe, the knife is one of the oldest killing implements around. Humans have been using them against each other and refining the design towards that purpose for literally tens of thousands of years.

    At the apex of our civilization, what "modern" knifes have been the design of choice for those who depended on them to kill the other guy first?

    The Sykes Fairbain dagger.

    The KBAR.

    The Barong / Machete / "big ass chopper".

    The Khukri.

    The Tanto.

    The Trench Knife. (basically brass knucks with a big spike or blade sticking out one end for anybody reading this who hasn't seen a trench knife).

    The Bowie.

    What thing do all these blades have in common?

    They look like knives, not Klingon table wear.

    What else do they have in common? They've killed countless humans in hand to hand combat. As the design has done admirably since the bronze age and beyond.

    Can the "whale circumcision tool" featured in this thread claim that?

    No. No it can't.

    Can a normal blade do all the trapping and interception crap the "Whale Circumcision Tool" is advertised for?

    Yes. Yes it can.

    I'll stick with my knifey looking knives, thanks.

    I'm not that well versed with knife combat but I agree. A knife is a knife, sure there's lots of variants, hundreds of them but a sharp thing with a pointy bit has been killing people for thousands of years. There's no need to dress up something that's so damn effective.

    Again to play the devil's advocate, I'd add the push dagger, jambiya, kuku machan/Fairbairn cobra knife, and tomahawk, which don't conform to regular patterns yet are still effective.

    I've been slacking off; those pushups were more difficult than they should've been.

    I'm pondering what to do if I ever have anyone walk into the temple's edged weapons class with one of those.

    Shoot them tops the list so far.
