Is There Such a Thing as an Ugly Knife?

I’m faced with a question: is beauty in the eye of the knife holder?

Let me explain how I arrived at this very philosophical question. While strolling the Internet for interesting tools, I came across the knife you see here.

As you probably notice, it is a custom-made knife with a really “unique” design. There are very polarizing opinions about these knives.

This is my opinion alone, but I think the knife is absolutely ugly. I’m sure the knifemaker, whom I believe is Richard Kloc of Richmade Knives, put a lot of thought and care into it, but I still think it’s hideous.

I’ve looked at a lot of knives in my day, and though I’ve never said it out loud, there are some knives I think are flat out grotesque. However, I’m sure there are people out there that think all knives (whether designed for practical uses or art) are a labor of craftsmanship. Each knife is a matter of taste and there will always be someone out there who thinks a knife is beautiful (even if it’s only the knifemaker).

So what side are you on? Is there such a thing as an ugly knife or are they all beautiful in their own right?

If you want to see more strange-looking and potentially ugly knives, check out our article on the 30 Weirdest Spyderco Knives, which includes this bizarre creation here.

Give us some of the ugliest knives you’ve ever encountered in the comments and maybe we’ll put together another post on those.
