Sharp Cutters Concealed to be Sharp Knife
« on: August 11, 2005, 09:31:00 PM »

I see a new item in the latest issue of Tactical Knives. It is knife with two handles! It is made to look like a pair of cutters/pliers in a leather holster on a belt. Now these handles do not move. The cutters do not cut. It is a solid, piece, "concealed" knife, made to the shape of cutters.

To a police officer (?) this would like a workman's pliers on a belt, but actually it is a wide , double edged knife. The product reviewer jerry Van Cook noted that he really couldn't squeeze his hand in between the double handles, and had to hold the concealed weapon across in the very wide, double-hand grip.

I got to thinking, which is always dangerous, but what would be wrong with the original, regular cutters? Sharp. Stabber. Might cut. It is quite a weapon in its original form. And it could actually cut like super scissors.

Odd....

What would be wrong indeed?  Wasn't it regular ol'e box cutters that they used to hijack the 9/11 flights, or one of them?  This kind of rig sounds like trouble waiting to happen for its owner.  What will you say when someone wants to borrow it for a mundane cutting task?!  IMHO, any pocketknife one carries should be useful first, and tactical second.  I sometimes read that you should never use your 'defense' knife, so that it will have a proper flesh-cutting edge on it or something.  Yeah, I want to explain to the officer why I carry a knife just for cutting men, and a second for everything else! :-\
