About 35 years ago, someone showed me a very cool faux switchblade. The one piece, cylindrical wooden handle was carved or turned on a lathe, with a nob on one end. A groove ran along the top of the handle.
The metal blade was affixed to the other end of the handle with a single rivet. When closed, the blade rested loosely in the groove. When opened, the blade dangled loosely from the end of the handle.
The guy opened the knife. He twisted the nob (which didnt really twist) and the infernal blade snapped back into the groove! Im talking blink of an eye fast!
I dont recall if he caused the blade to snap open by twisting the knob but, being a switchblade, I imagine that it could do that too.
I'm aware of the method.
Is anyone familiar with this wacky knife? Is it still available? Id love to get my hands on one.
Thanks in advance.
