    This is an old vid but in case some of you haven't seen it I didn't want you to escape the sadness and insult to your senses that the rest of us had to experience. My apologies.

    ".......just kinda drilled in after the fact probably by hand by somebody who's probably on a great many stimulants........."

    That's a classic right there!!!

    I've seen similar but not nearly this bad, nor a knife. But this is what happens when you let the marketing guys into the design shop.
    "Survey's are telling us serrations are a selling point. Put some on the knife." "Uhh.. It already has them" "no no! Not tiny, big like gator teeth. While your at it. The blade needs a fuller" "Well there isn't any room. Nor would it look right on a tanto." " I don't care, reduce the weight, just drill some holes." Accounting joins the discussion. "With all these changes we are double our budget!" Marketing. "Oh no worries we'll just finish half the knife. Plus my cousin got us some super cheap screws. Crapitanium he swears it's the cats meow. we'll make a fortune on this knife, trust me!" ROFL!;)
    Cheers Jim

    If the gator teeth were ground out, it could have a quarter round!

    Were those holes on the blade so that wind could pass thru?

    This thread has nothing to do with the Mora Eldris or TB Tracker.

    Very misleading.

    That is hilarious. I love the speed holes. I think someone should try and do some bushcrafting with it.

    That is the knife you give some one ( not a knife user) that you know will never use it.

    I'm a jailer and from time to time we have to confiscate knives of arrestees. I have seen a great many awful, hideous, and mind-boggling stupid knives. Stuff that even the most ridiculous mall-ninja would sneer at. Knives that only crack-heads and meth-heads think are good.

    This knife is worse than all of those.

    I would definitely use that knife...




    ...to stab myself in the ear holes if I had to listen to his frenetic keening one more minute!!!!





    And as silly as that knife is, I'd still prefer it to either of the two Condor Woodlaws that I've owned.

    I know a guy who'd be the perfect match for a knife like that. All flash and no substance.

    All the screw heads stripped out is just icing on the cake, well that and the chisel grind.

    Okay, originally I just looked at the picture but now I went back and watched the video. LMFAO! Some great quotes in there...

    "A fractal of 'suck'..."

    "Every part of this knife is just screaming, 'I have made poor life decisions...'"

    You guys are hurting my feelings. That was the first design I got accepted into the budk catalog. I was so proud of it until you guys started making fun of my best work.....

    I would never have understood that reference until I got my cochlear implants. When I realized that was what he sounded like. I apologized to my wife for making that my kids fave show.

    My best friends and I as soon as we were 18 used to go to the swap meet in Vegas and buy any sword/knife that caught our fancy. Took a while to figure out blade styles and materials that worked but it was good times. Even my idiot friend who bought a spear and a whip, both of which broke first hour never bought anything like that.

    It may be extremely ugly and impractical but it would do some insanely serious damage if someone were stabbed by it. That would not be just a pretty little puncture wound

    Yeah I’m with you. I don’t think that blade is meant for anything but leaving jagged torn wounds. If somebody were to get cut with that it’d look like they’d been cut with a dull rip saw.

    TBH I did see a blade recently that might qualify as worse than this but I don't think I can post a pic of it without violating forum rules.

    A dude took a Damascus blank and ground it to look like a "Johnson". It, too, was chisel bevel and fitted to a Microtech OTF handle. Even more ridiculous, he sold it, blade only, for $750...
