Mother of all Knives

Joshua over at nearly caused me to spit coffee all over my keyboard at work yesterday morning, when he posted about the Wengerยฎ Giant Knife. And yes, that is its actual name.

Like him, I first thought it was a joke, or a clever PhotoShop manipulation. It’s real, though, and there is even a price on the product page of their website ($1,400 in case you were wondering).ย  Since I’m left with no reason to doubt its authenticity, I wonder what the point was, of even making the Giant Knife? Publicity?

Publicity is nice, but someone should tell them that the market has moved on. Companies like Leatherman are the innovators now, with their plier-centric designs. Even Victorinox, the parent company of Wenger, is makeing a plier-centric line of multi-tools.

  1. I can see where that might be a sensitive subject to you Mes, since unlike Jim kelly, the Snake actually owns a Super Bowl ring ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. The Snake is a Man’s Man and could do everything the knife could do plus throw touchdowns.

    Raider Nation….

  3. Ok, unless he’s carrying one of these knives, I don’t want to hear about some former Raider on an otherwise great blog!
    ; )

  4. ๐Ÿ™‚ I like the mustache comb, but it doesn’t have a cigar cutter like the Giant Knife ๐Ÿ™‚

    btw – I don’t want to rub it in, but I met Ken Stabler in Las Vegas this weekend, and he autographed a photo for my son. I’m not normally the autograph type, but hey, it was the Snake you know?

  5. They definitely do – I’ve had a Commander in my tool box for years and it’s taken a lot of torque from the screwdriver, without any ill effects.

  6. That’s for those people living in the city thinking something like that would be so cool. LMAO. And to think, they actually PAID someone to come up with that!

  7. One word…. WHY??????

    Couldn’t all that metal have been used more constructively?

    Wonder how many of these babies they sell? ๐Ÿ™‚
