    CRKT Hissatsu folder looks kind of mean. It opens mean too.

    From the trends of this thread, it looks like large and hawkbill blades, balisongs, autos, and OTFs are scary. Anything else?

    Cold Steel 6" Ti-Lite looks like a (seriously) big old fashioned switchblade. I don't care what you cut with it, people will give you a dirty look.

    The 6" is almost ridiculous "to me" as the 4" is about perfect size-wise and still gets it's share of raised eybrows. ;)

    Toyz and J_Curd are right. Any blade larger than a fingernail gets looks around here.

    No, THIS blatant ripoff looks retarded. At least the Spydercos with this blade shape had nice, flowing curves while maintaining a scary look.

    I had a similar experience as well with my Emerson Super Karambit. Though I guess I could understand since it's more or less akin to bringing a weapon to work. The lesson we learn is that you only show your knives to people at work if you consider them a friend. For other coworkers who probably aren't your best bud, just don't pull it out.

    If I need to use a knife in the open public, I find that a fixed blade won't raise any eyebrows even if it's as sharp as a scalpel.

    It's funny how the shape and folding function draws more attention than anything else. But then, I suppose it's hard to judge a threat you can't see(the sharpness of the knife, whether or not someone will use it on another person). Still, I suspect my Dozier Buffalo River Hunter won't cause much alarm even if I dropped a tomato on the blade and split it in half.

    I remember reading from somewhere that this was made under permission of spyderco, but I could remember wrong.

    I thought it was a Spyderco until I read it was a rip off. :eek:

    I think about this knife everytime I am looking for a large folder. Too bad they stopped making it. I have looked for hours for one without any luck. Is that yours? Nice knife!:thumbup:

    Alright we get the point. No need to troll.
     
  17. Benchmade Skirmish, while not scary, can certainly be intimidating.

    I should kick myself for getting rid of the two I had!

    Ugh.. that looks even worse. No offense to the man, but I don't think any of his designs look good at all especially considering the price and materials.

    Interesting. If I don't present a wicked looking blade, that's when I get the strange looks. It's all in a person's expectations.

    Without the finger grooves, it actually looks like Kershaw Shallot.
