Monster Stilettos

Monday, September 14th, 2009

Don’t have a whole lot of time today, so I thought I’d throw some eye candy your way to distract you, and then while you were looking the other way, I’d skedaddle. Let the game begin… πŸ˜€

The topic of todays’ post? Stilettos. Monster Stilettos. Monster Folding Stilettos. Yeah. Don’t believe me? Here Ya go:

Would you just look at this thing? It’s like a freaking short sword… 13″ long, 6″ blade. Ok, maybe a short sword is exaggerating a bit, but still, how many 6″ folders do you run across?

Honestly, stilettos have some of the most sexiest blade profiles around. Actually I think a few of the Fairbairn-Sykes profiles are similar, and much more evil, but nonetheless, the stiletto is a classic. The narrow 6″ blade, with the false edge, and the sharp point, is, as the website suggests, the stuff of classic 50’s gangstas. But I bet none of them ever carried around a 15″ stiletto…

Absolutely beautiful…

Now just keep your eyes on the pretty flashy not-so-little knives… πŸ˜€

A Cool Gamblin’ Gunblade.

Monday, August 24th, 2009

Today, per popular request, I thought I’d treat you to one of the sweetest gun blades I’ve ever come across. A very unique gun blade that is so cool in so many ways, I hardly know where to begin. So I guess I’ll start with a pic:

The High Roller

Now *that* is a cool gunblade. Exactly *how* cool? Let me count the ways… πŸ˜€

First off, this piece of art is a study in beautiful black damascus steel. And my regulars will all know that black is a BIG plus in my book. This little knife is a beauty. A 5″ black damascus blade, that folds into a beautifully contoured black damascus grip, adorned with a set of sweet sambar stag horn scales. Just amazing.

And then we have the fully functional black powder muzzle loader pistol in .22. All in black, with beautifully done scrollwork along the length of the barrel and backstrap/grip.

Seriously, a black damascus folder, especially one like this, is a thing of beauty all by itself. But a black damascus folder attached to a black steel gun? That’s just too darn cool for school.

And as if that weren’t enough, the knife was made to stow in a beautiful book set, complete with black powder kit and a pair of elephant ivory dice to boot.

This, ladies and germs, is functional art. None of that “fantasy” garbage here, the knife is fully functional, the pistol is fully functional, and the whole thing is just an amazing amalgamation of art, sinister lines and beautiful darkness all put together to make a single, awesome kit of uncompromising WIN.

What more can I say? I’m not the gambling sort, but I’d certainly take it up if it gave me an excuse to carry something like this around… πŸ˜€

A Terminal Blade…

Friday, August 21st, 2009

Guess what I ran into! A knife. But not just any knife, a Terminator knife! Now obviously, this knife is either inspired by or from the new Terminator: Salvation movie Starring Christian Bale. I thought I’d go ahead and post about this knife now, because I have not watched the movie yet, and if it turns out that the movie does not have this knife, this post would automatically become a rant, since that is, of course, one of my pet peeves.

So here we go:

Terminator Salvation Neck Knife

OK, so I just checked, and the site I found it on, claims that it comes with a certificate, so I can only presume it is licensed from the movie. Rant averted! (I hope! We’ll see after I watch the movie. πŸ™‚ ) Anyway, I have just one word to describe this knife. Beefy. Beefy blade, Beefy scales, beefy edge grind, beefy point, the whole thing looks like whoever designed it was trying desperately to grind as little material off the steel as possible.

But I love the result. A set of cool black G-10 scales sandwich a flat black full tang blade, with an interesting choil like pattern that is only mildly echoed by the blade itself. Above the grip the blade angles downward slightly, the thick spine coming to an abrupt clip point to meet the upward curving edge emblazoned with the “Terminator Salvation” logo.

I’m not really a big fan of the blatant branding, but from a practical standpoint the design should be very strong. And this is not a small knife by any means, at 8″ long with a 3.6″ blade, it would make a very good general purpose blade, an take a lot of abuse.

But, of course, therein lies a paradox. If you had a certified collectors edition of a movie knife, would you want to subject it to any abuse? Or would you just put it into a glass case, set it up on your mantle, and admire it from a distance? Nowadays I find myself becoming more and more conflicted about buying genuine collectors knives. In my mind, knives are made to be used, not worshipped…

It always seems like a waste to let a perfectly good knife just sit on the wall… But if you’re into that sort of thing… πŸ˜€
