Today we have our first entry into the “What on Earth…?” pantheon of inexplicable weapons. Entries into this hall of fame are weapons whose design seems ill suited to serve their most obvious purpose, but seem to be more likely to be a product of some ADD stricken designers flight of narcotic induced fantasy. First up:

Triangle of Darkness

Triangle of Darkness

OK, all I can do is tell you what it appears to be, and let you take the next subjective step of determining aesthetics and functionality. It appears to be three fairly nice “tactical” (lol.. I said “tactical”… LOL) knives similar in design to the Fairbairn Sykes fighting knife, except that they are hinged together via some sort of double-legged display stand contraption thingamajig. The center knife appears longer than the two peripheral knives that it is connected to. And that’s all I got.

Now could someone please tell me what in tarnation this is supposed to be? The blades themselves don’t appear to be anything special, (apart from having a fairly proven tactical design, and being black, for which it gets it’s due props) so why would anyone feel the need to display a set of 3 fairly similar and unassuming combat knives? Somehow it just doesn’t feel right. This is the sort of thing I always have a hard time understanding. I think these would look much better on a ninjas belt, or in a nylon web sheath, on a British commandos belt, than on a display. But that could just be just me.
