OK, so maybe I’m waxing a little poetic here, but I ran into a knife not too long ago, that looked a heckuvalot like the Spiderman Tanto… Except in black. With talons. And, of course, it is modeled after Spider-Mans latest nemesis, the space symbiote called Venom. But here… see for yourself:
LOL… This looks cool. A whole lot cooler than the original Spider-Man tanto it is based on. But the irony here, is that much like my previous post on the Spider-Man tanto, there almost seems no real reason to make a Spidey knife, as Spider-Man really isn’t a knife guy in any kind of way. Now the Green Goblin, on the other hand, is all about bladed weapons. Just look at his his blade equipped glider, his arm blades and his flying pumpkin blades of death, just to name a few 🙂
But more relevant to the knife in question is that Venom isn’t by any means a knife user. In fact Venom is much more a hands on, mano-a-mano kind of creature. But I digress.
The point is, it’s funny how the cutlery industry will forcibly make a blade, often times quite mediocre ones at that, to capitalize on the success of a movie series, regardless of how unrelated it is to the knife industry. I’m almost surprised there isn’t a “Tickle Me Elmo” knife…
No, really… Why Isn’t there a Tickle Me Elmo Knife?
