My hibben claw 2 is missing those prongs at the top. I basically ground it into a standard karambit.

I just bought it for novelty value, it's not something I would actualy carry. When I get home I will post a picture of my billhook from when I was an arborist, I carried it to and from work regularly wrapped ina n old bit of sacking and even chased a mugger with it once.

I love the Emerson Commander. I have one in my pocket right now from '98. The older ones were almost custom quality and they open just as smooth as glass, with no "play" in the open position.
If you are in the market for a BIG quality folding knife, check out Kershaw's "Zero Tolerance" line. They are designed by Ken Onion with one design being co-authored by Strider Knives. They are incredibly well made and very sharp. They are also quite expensive, but a good portion of the proceeds goes directly to the Paralyzed Veterans of America. Good stuff.

My own blade collection:
- Emerson Commander
- Butterfly blade
- WW1 standard Canadian army issue jacknife. Has a cool extendable spike about 2 1/2 inches long. Intended for cleaning the hooves of horses but could be utilized in a much nastier fashion.
- small Russian stiletto (really small)
- WW1 German Bayonet
- various lockblades of different sizes
Would love to get my hands on a rocketknife. At least I think that's what they are called.. like the one in "The Punisher" he uses to kill that assassin who plays the guitar? I understand they are quite hard to come by.
I also really like the knife in the movie "Cobra". I had a chance to get one exactly the same at a gun show in Michigan about 12 yrs ago for less than a hundred bucks..I should have got it when I had the chance.

Dude, I would be in so much trouble in the UK. :) I generally have at least 2 blades on me. I guess if I visit, I'll have to stick to my Titanium pen.
