Unusual Knives...Whatcha Got?

Everyone probably has something "weird" in their knife collection. In my case those are some old American made folders. Two belonged to my father. I have his boyhood Hoppalong Cassidy hero knife, and the Colonial Fish Knife he kept in his fresh-water tackle box. The other is an Ideal Camper, an old school take on the multi-tool concept. What interesting things lurk in the bottom of your knife drawer?

Not really "weird", but I don't personally know anyone that carries one but me.
I EDC this Fox Karambit folder

The Karambit has become mainstream. I see lots of quality knives being made in that pattern. I have no knowledge of that technique, but you are not alone in liking it. Cool knife!

It did a number on my finger when I first got it and sharpened it.

Super glue was my friend that day.

Ouch! That right there is why I haven't tried one. I took one look and thought that it would require training to use effectively. I hate the sight of blood...especially mine!

As a kid, I used to collect knives. Still have a bunch of them boxed up in storage.

Among them is a genuine Hitler Youth knife that an old boyfriend had given to my mother after he came home from Europe after WWII. The photo below is not the exact knife I have, but is a darned close representation of it.

I also have a 1976 (Bicentennial edition) large Bowie Knife made by Case.

Geez. I gotta go dig out that box and make sure those knives are still in good shape.

Used to have this, up until a couple years ago, and sold to a collector. I always thought it was cool, despite its history. Luftwaffe dagger...

How this happened...
Slid the folded knife into my pocket, the clip didn't engage and went inside the pocket.
I pulled it back out to set the clip, the "wave" caught the pocket and partially opened the knife (as designed).
When I reinserted it, it closed on my finger.

Cool war trophy to bring home and impress the girls! You better find your box of knives. That old Case Bowie has to be worth a good bit. American made folding knives of the 1900's have become very valuable, and lots of grandpa's knives of the 50's and 60's are out there.

One I just acquired... Says it's a genuine U.S.Army knife and the military gets a cut from the proceeds from buying one of these. Made in a real slave labor camp in China.
Has a spring assist that throws the blade out fast with the flick of the finger.

That is different, but I seriously doubt our military is buying Chinese knives

But it's got this sparkly little label on the bottom that says it is. lol. Purty nice knike though, it's put together with 20 screws (no glue). Obviously this could mean the U.S.Army could be getting ready to import genuine slave labor troops to save money. lmao
