Like most people who carry knives, sometimes a pocket knife with a three-inch blade simply won’t cut it. That’s where larger knives like the S&W dagger pocket knife or even the huge Cold Steel Espada XL come in handy. Still, for the times when those just aren’t quite big enough, one man has created a pocket knife with a machete-sized blade.
Joerg Sprave, the man who created the knife chainsaw and machete slingshot, dreamed up the massive pocket knife shortly after Halloween of 2012. We know we’re a little late on this, but it’s a creation worth revisiting. And before you criticize this guy for imagining something so bizarre and not entirely useful, he created it as a kind of joke.
The massive pocket knife features a full-length machete blade and uses rubber to hold the blade open and closed. The best part about it is that since it doesn’t use a true locking mechanism, he can legally carry the pocket knife in Germany.
While it’s definitely not the most functional knife (though he does use it to make a sandwich in the video), it’s a really cool creation. If you want to see some of the other things Sprave has imagined up, check out The Slingshot Channel.
