Huge gravity knife with AK 47 bayonet blade

Believe it or not, today I did NOT make a slingshot... but a knife!

In Germany, we usually can't own gravity knifes. We also can't carry one-hand folding knifes that lock the blade.

But I found a loophole! The law says that if the gravity knife does NOT lock the blade automatically or by the released button, then it is legal. And even legal to carry IF you have to use the other hand for the lock.

But such knifes are not commercially available.

So I made one! Not completely finished, but it works. Two small neodyme magnets hold the blade in place (both positions), and the screw will firmly lock it if needed. Will polish it and also find a nicer screw.

The blade is from an AK 47 bayonet. Blade length is 12,5 cm.

The Fourth Reich will come about when Joerg invades France with his gatling slingshot and his bayonet knife.

Superb craftsmanship as always.

But that's quite a handful for a knife...And you appear to have pretty larger sized hands. I couldn't even imagine smaller hands being able to utilize that thing particularly well.

But that's what prototypes are for; Start big, then start miniaturizing.

Props in any event man.

It's a shame he can't make any guns. the Germans have always excelled at making firearms, much like the french excel at making white flags.....

Can we have you record a youtube video saying random stuff like "Get in the choppa"?

Awesome knife. May I recommend a wing nut for the locking mechanism.

make a little spring loaded button that you can press to hold the blade in place so when you stab a motherfucker with it before you lock it, the blade won't retract

A large knurled knob would work very well and look pretty spiffy too!
