    I wonder how many people would guess "knife" if shown this picture and asked to identify the device. Not knife nuts, they'd guess the abomination is a knife from the visible pocket clip and frame lock mechanism. I mean, just show some normal person and see what they think this is. I'm guessing not many would think this was a pocketknife.

    I would tend to agree that it's NOT a pocketknife .

    It's at best an ironic statement /artistic creation of some sort .

    That blade might be nice mounted on a polearm , but not in your pocket .

    Did someone mention RMK?!? Ask and ye shall receive! Apparently somebody specifically ordered this abomination. I can only guess they were inspired by their toilet bowl after a night of bingeing on Taco Bell and White Castle while drinking heavily.

    Looks like someone took an already crappy design and shot it with buckshot

    Methinks that someone should probably have shot it again, then once more, just to put it out of our misery, and started over...

    I thought the bar for "ugliest RMK knife" was already pretty high, but it has now been raised considerably. :eek::D

    Looks like you could put that in the garden to hide a spare house key under.

    You might be surprised how large a pocket you would have after you drop this in it.

    It looks perfect for concealed carry. You could wear it openly and no one would think it a knife.

    Dear lord, I thought he'd hit rock bottom but now he's starting to dig.

    It kind of looks like it went through a wood chipper.

    If art is intended to disturb the comfortable, then RMK has succeeded.

    so... this dawson fixed blade is really puzzling... decent price just over $200 for a cpm-3v blade -- yay right?
    but then they ruin it with 'tip jimping'??? and a recurve??.... can anyone see any valid reason for 'tip jumping'?? I can't imagine one, not even if I stretch
    sigh

    I could look past the silly handle with ultra recessed torx screws & the overly busy shaping... (at least I could fix those)

    Isn't it for getting purchase near the tip in a pinch grip, kind of like a harpoon blade shape?

    Benchmade did that with their "Hunt" line, tip jimping and recurve. They wised up and got rid of the recurve in the new models. I tried to ignore the jimping, I couldn't do it. All it did was snag on things I was trying to cut. Damn thing even got stuck once trying to dig out an arrow head from a tree, I had to use another knife to dig it out. I guess if I had no clearance and I needed to pull a small line or cable, the jimping could be used as a hook, but I wouldn't do that either. I think it is intended to give you some non slip grip while choked up for fine point work, which I do pretty often, can't say I've ever thought of needing jimping there. Definitely didn't want it there.
