So I asked this guy why tattoos? He said they are, at the end of the day, nothing more than “conversation” pieces and something to look at. So is this knife. Probably illegal where you live as they may be construed to be/have “brass knuckles”. Your problem not mine as I do not know what the laws are where you live. Ok, so you got this evil mongo blade in your car and get pulled over. See you in jail. You actually use this knife and kill or maim someone. May be you were in the right.. self defense.. once the jury see this murder implement.. see you in prison. Now to be realistic. In my opinion this knife sucks as a fighting knife; don’t get me wrong it is an awesome blade to heft and admire and collect (here comes a “but”) BUT.. this is a huge knife and a professional may well be adept with it. Problem is you ain’t, so you’re gonna put this monster on (and damn it feels GOOD when you put it on) and start “boxing”. You’re a gonna wanna start boxing cause that’s what you instinctively do when it is on over your knuckles. You will want to hit someone. Fist will be out and the blade will be pointed straight up. Since you really don’t know what you’re doing you might even pull that sucker back behind your head for that smashing killing punch.. imagine that. Hell go ahead and make a fist behing your head to bring your fist down and smash someone. Fist is now PARALLEL with the ground as you move forward to strike. Figured it out yet? Where’s the blade? Sticking out to the side of your fist; between your fist and neck. As you muster all the strength in your body and smash your steel covered fist forward the blade slices your own freaking neck severing one carotid and one jugular and hell if you’re a real screw up maybe you get a piece of your trachea and esophagus too. How about the look on your face? Toodles time! Ok enough said. According to Extrema “A.S.F.K. is a dagger dedicated to and adopted by the new Comando Forze Speciali Esercito Italiano (Italian Special Forces). A.S.F.K. combat knife revives the Arditi tradition and cold weapon assaults which are characteristic of trench warfare. A.S.F.K. is a contemporary interpretation of the famous trench combat knife. It comes with N690 Böhler steel blade, forprene handle and a ring guard for hand protection while using it as a glass breaker”.
