The scorpion knife is scarier than most knives. It can be worn as a wrist knife, like a bracelet. If you come across a person wearing this type of knife it is best to head the other way. This knife can be very dangerous.


Victorinox SwissChamp

Victorinox SwissChamp

The Swiss army knife has just about anything that you want in a knife. It will operate in most functions that you will need. It is very practical. This can mean that you can get a multitude of functions done with this knife.  Truth be told, however, it’s such a monstrosity, that it may be better suited as a conversation piece on your mantle or coffee table rather than a useful tool in the field.  Still, for the man who has “everything” .


Lipstick Knife

Lipstick Knife

The lipstick knife is hidden in a lipstick case and can be a woman’s best friend in the event of an attack. It is compact and elegant. It features a 1 1/4” blade. It has a glossy deep blue finish on the casing. It is discrete and practical.  Unfortunately, it’s not legal in many places, so the closest we could come to something you might like to buy, is lipstick stun guns and pepper spray …. which is kinda just as cool don’t you think?


Impala Knife

The Impala knife is an art deco liner lock folding knife. It features a ladder pattern with an Impala head. It sports 14 karat gold horns in the handle that introduces the rear of the handle. It is a very graceful and flowing knife.
Custom knives can come in many forms. They can be disguised in any form. These are just a few of the unusual knives that can be found on the open market. Custom made knives can be a weapon that could save your life if you are in danger.
