What's the Point of a Dagger Clearly Designed for Killing?

Illustration for article titled What's the Point of a Dagger Clearly Designed for Killing?

If you aren't Wesley Snipes, why the hell would you like this Jagdkommando Tri-Dagger Fixed Blade Knife, a 7-inch weapon with a hollow handle? This thing is clearly designed to kill people.


And since vampires don't exist, what other uses can you think for a knife with three twisted blades? Just tell me one single use apart from stabbing some living being without the need to twist the dagger, as Kif—one of Gizmodo's interns—pointed out.

This thing even has a "glass breaker" on the handle. A glass breaker.

What for? For breaking and entering? Maybe for emergency breaking of glass in those emergency situations in which you want to kill someone locked up in a car or a home?

Perhaps I live in a different la-la land, but this doesn't make any sense to me or anyone else at Gizmodo. So please someone explain. Or let's get over with it and make this stupid thing illegal. [Knife Art via The Awesomer]



This could be one of my last posts, as per Giz's new commenting policy changes.

Well, why would anyone buy this? Why do people buy handguns? Why is it legal in some states to buy Uzis and AK-47s without background check at gun shows? Pretty sure you ain't gonna hunt a bear with a Kalashnikov. Meanwhile, THIS could be useful for camping - one run-in with a hungry coyote or a moose in heat and you'll be packing nothing but daggers in your camping gear.
