LEDs Move Closer to World Domination, Now Embedded in a Knife

Let's put LEDs on everything, including this Buck Metro LED Knife, so you can see what you're slicing into even in the dead of night. It has a 2.5-inch stainless steel blade, and you're sure not to drain those two lithium batteries inside because the LED light has a three-minute auto shutoff.

What's next to get the LED treatment? An ice cream scooper? Hey, wait. Hmm. One more pic showing the knife with its blade open and closed, after the jump.

This little weapon reminds us of those assault rifles with a high-beam flashlight lashed onto the top. It has a key ring loop so you can always keep it handy, but be sure not to take it on that next plane trip—could be your ticket to a bend-over appointment in the strip-search room.

What, do you guys just read the cyberguys catalogue and post them one at a time?

This will get tossed in the box at the airport with the million and a half other pointy things that people forget to check in their luggage when they are in too much of a hurry. No special bending over, unless your name is on the list or you bought the ticket 10 minutes ago on the internet.

They used to sell the confiscated stuff at the state surplus store here in Md. and I would buy it by the 100 pound box.

It was kind of shocking what people thought they could get away with, there were 6 inch buck knives in there. There were also a bunch of pretty non-threatening things like ethernet crimpers and table (very dull) knives and forks.

My favorite was the bhudist phurpa knife, very dull but dangerous as a club i suppose.

So I have about 50 leathermen knives now, almost equivalent to the amount I have lost by forgetting to check them when I am in a hurry.
