The crappiest knife ever made!

Sooner or later if you buy enough knives, one of them is going to break your heart--or want to make you kill something...

Attached is the knife that almost did me in!

I have polished this knife, re-profiled the edge, used several pastes, re-cut the edge and started over, and almost deluded myself into carrying the blasted thing myself.

You make me an offer and the switchblade is yours. Be warned! It will never do anything for you, in fact, I had a Hades own spin on even getting the tip to be 'pointy.'

If you see this knife in your area (probably marked down for clearance) just walk on by...

Does it come with "life sharp"?
It's a cool looking knife but what exactly is wrong with it?

No, it does not come with "life sharp"--because I haven't figured out a way to get it even "utility sharp."

I'm not going to carry this knife as a product from Bada Bing. There are other small switchblades. As I said, I have two small SW switchblades on order. If you need a small knife, I'd recommend one of them.

EDIT: BTW, it also comes with that bizarre spine lock. You release the blade by pulling up with your thumb and index finger, and when you feel the blade start to rotate, you use your index finger knuckle to totally release it. It's clumsy, unnecessary, dangerous and like all the features on that monstrosity, one more thing to catch on your pocket when you need it fast to protect yourself.

Get a Schrade or a Boker. Half the price, twice the knife.
