Aut cum scuto aut in scuto
I get the point (no pun) of that sort of kris knife. Sort of like a lunger bayonet that leaves a huge wound channel like a WW1 trench knife. The old trench knives had a handle with brass knuckles incorporated into it...which I always admired. The problem with these knives comes with the pushing. A lunger was a long solid taper. The thinner knives go in far more cleanly and are less likely to be obstructed by bones.
They're nice and effective, but not cheap, LL.
A bar of soap in a sock will do the trick, BSB.
The medieval version had a wider guard and a flat disk pommel for pounding the point through eye slots of helmets.Once again, what was old is new again.And as LL said, the guard is way too small for thrusting.
Would be a knife you just left. Hard to pull out.
A push dagger is better.
a one inch by 50 inch hinge handle/breaker bar would not get stuck in the ribs like these would. also are they not illegally too long for Kalifornia?
