What the hell is it? Where did you see it?

Francisco?! Anyone??

EDIT: Apparently this is a ballistic knife that was issued to the Spetsnaz and as of 1986 it is 100% illegal in the US of A.

Sec. 1245. Ballistic knives

-STATUTE-
(a) Prohibition and penalties for possession, manufacture, sale, or
importation
Whoever in or affecting interstate commerce, within any Territory
or possession of the United States, within Indian country (as
defined in section 1151 of title 18), or within the special
maritime and territorial jurisdiction of the United States (as
defined in section 7 of title 18), knowingly possesses,
manufactures, sells, or imports a ballistic knife shall be fined as
provided in title 18, or imprisoned not more than ten years, or
both.
(b) Prohibition and penalties for possession or use during
commission of Federal crime of violence
Whoever possesses or uses a ballistic knife in the commission of
a Federal crime of violence shall be fined as provided in title 18,
or imprisoned not less than five years and not more than ten years,
or both.
(c) Exceptions
The exceptions provided in paragraphs (1), (2), and (3) of
section 1244 of this title with respect to switchblade knives shall
apply to ballistic knives under subsection (a) of this section.
(d) "Ballistic knife" defined
As used in this section, the term "ballistic knife" means a knife
with a detachable blade that is propelled by a spring-operated
mechanism.

And this are the exceptions it mentions:

(1) any common carrier or contract carrier, with respect to any
switchblade knife shipped, transported, or delivered for shipment
in interstate commerce in the ordinary course of business;
(2) the manufacture, sale, transportation, distribution,
possession, or introduction into interstate commerce, of
switchblade knives pursuant to contract with the Armed Forces;
(3) the Armed Forces or any member or employee thereof acting
in the performance of his duty;



Whether or not the Spetnatz actually used these knives is a matter of discussion, although most collectors believe it's just a story. For what it's worth, the two or three of these I handled were mostly built as novelties, not very good quality.

They featured this on the greatest show ever, The Deadliest Warrior.

You would think it would suck, but the one they tested was fairly impressive.

I want one, too.
