Mine is a Kukri or Gurkha knife as I use to call them! The difference with my knife is that it's older then me and I'm seventy-two.
Mine was made in India during world was two.
My dad carried it in the Army Air Corps, while serving in India/Burma area.

Check this one out. I bought it somewhere in the middle of Texas in a gas station. It opens with a flick of the wrist and locks open. The trigger must be pulled back to unlock and close it.

I found another pic of my knife on the internet. This does not mean it is an official product of our military, may just mean a corporation will go to any length to make money.

John kept one of the blades for himself, and while we were talking about them, he decided to give his personal one to me. He figured he would be getting one pretty soon that was exactly the way he wanted it. Unfortunately, John died a short time later, and the knife project went on the back burner. Noveske Rifleworks did decide to release a limited serial numbered run of them, but not with any of the design tweaks that John had wanted to implement.

To the best of my knowledge, there were 4 or 5 of the originals made. His son has one, two went to other people, and I ended up with his. No one seems to know who ended up with the other blade.

Anyway, that is my story of one of my unusual knives.

Stickman, that is an awesome knife! The story of how you came to have it is just as good. It is a treasure. Thanks for putting up the photos. I always enjoy your quality photography.

Thanks for sharing, Stick. That is a wild blade. Would you be willing to elaborate on some of the tweaks he was planning to make?

I don't know how unusual they are, but to me they are unique.

One is in my carry rotation, they other sits in a drawer in it's box still.

They are the Kershaw Rake and Junkyard Dog that have the composite blades made up of Sandvik 14C28N back with a CPM D2 cutting edge. They both sport G-10 scales. I sharpened the Rake up a bit and it is crazy crazy sharp.



Junkyard Dog is on top and the Rake is the bottom.

Added guard to Zombie head lopper. Now refer to it as the LMRT, for Libatard Mob Reduction Tool. Shown with 1974 Blackhawk 45LC.

Sweet knives NexxusOne! I hadn't seen those before. I like the composite blades, and think that JunkYard Dog is really nice.

Original German Mauser Rifle Bayonet and Scabbard inherited from my father-in-law along with the 8mm Mauser he brought home after the war.
I bought the Trench Knife in the 70's I believe it is a reproduction.

Nope, if I did, at some point someone would read it and make the design themselves and sell it. I can't be a part of that, and to be honest, I can't even recall everything as there was a lot we discussed. We would sit on his back deck by the river house for hours and talk about all sorts of things.
