I prefer butterfly knives, too bad they're always illegal for some goddamn reason.

butterfly knifes are the single most retarded sad excuse for a knife it would be a better idea to go into a fight with a dildo to shove up your own ass

Lol, no.
While they're not the most practical, they're worth having in a fight.
After maybe 10 minutes practice, even an idiot can learn to open one in under a second.
Once you've got the knife open, it's just as effective as any other similarly sized knife.

Maybe you have more experience than I do about getting into fights with a dildo in your ass, I've never tried it, but I'd still prefer to have a butterfly knife in a fight than that.

honestly

if you pull your knife out in a fist fight or any fight for that matter, you gotta be ready to win or die.

because if i was ever in a fight and someone pulled out a knife and i had no other way to run away, i would not hestitate to severly injure that person,

I've asked the cops that come into my store and they all say butterfly and switchblade's are illegal because of the way they are deployed. Something about how they're so easy to open. IDK sounds retarded to me but whatever.

I believe it's more of the reason that because they can be deployed so easily, when they're not deployed, they can be easily hidden to use when your guard is down. If it were a pocket knife, it takes a bit of work to flip the blade open and if it was fixed, it's a lot more obvious and can be confiscated easier. Also, in a dark alley, if you have the switchblade in your hand already, just the flick of a wrist and one quick arc and the person has a slashed throat. It's a lot faster than most people can react. I was trained in martial arts to the black belt level and I can tell you it's hard to block something that fast.

Cuz of governemtn laws and fear mostly. Same reason AR-15s are banned in certain countries, while Benelli MR1s and Tavors arent. My country of Canada doesnt allow spring assisted switch blades or butter fly knives but I EDC a perfectly legal spyderco Manix or CRKT M16. I can open these blades one handed stupid fast, faster then I can open my plastic bladed butterfly knife.

Kitchen knives break very easily, so they would not make a very good weapon. Also, no hand guard, so your hand will slip onto the blade if you hit bone and the blade doesn't shatter.

My point exactly. Why is a fixed handle blade not just as bad? My only theory is that a fixed is held in a sheath that is usually fastened closed and taking the time to pull it out gives other people time to react? I just don't get it.

I wanted to join in this conversation, but it's ******* long as ****.

Anywho. Most butterfly knives are dulled on one side, contrary to popular belief that "you will" cut yourself by playing with em. They're basically just over-complex kitchen knives.

As stated down below, fixed blade knives are rather useful in day to day stuff.

On that note, would anybody be willing to buy me 20 Ka-Bar Kukris, with a return gift of a hand-written letter reading "Ur ghey"?

to be fair butterfly knives are okay when it comes to self defence when you started getting into weapons, later on there will be better knives but a butterfly knife is like starter pokemon that only evolve once, you get the hang of them and get cooler ones but you still like it.

Because most people who like butterfly knives, are only familiar with them in video games and movies, and think they look cool.

Oh. That's stupid.
I got one when I was in middle school, picked up how to open it pretty quickly and just played with it when I was bored. In my opinion they're safer than a switchblade and more reliable. Never hurt myself once. Used it constantly on things that required the use of my other hand. Just an efficient knife.
Aside from tf2, I can't think of a single game with a butterfly knife.

they are not illegal in pennsylvania... do you live in the states or uk? just curious where you live. also butterfly knives kinda gimmicky at best. depending on the situation also depends on what knife you take. me for example i have a swiss knife with every tool i could possibly need on one tool. i also have a survival knife in my car because it has died in the middle of nowhere in winter and a survival knife with a compass and some survival tools would have been extremely nice thank god i had steal wool and a fully charged car battery so i could keep warm till the tow truck got there in -20 degree weather and in the middle of a blizzard. the bowie knife is a practical knife for more heavy duty cutting like gutting a deer and stripping meat off of it's bones. hell i have a knife made out of an umbrella handle and a file my great grandfather made that i only needed to sharpen once because i really think in a past life he was some kind of weapons maker in mid evil times. either way i have a butterfly knife and the only use i have for it is playing with when im bored because of the flipping action.

Mmm, I don't think that's a fair argument there, the kukri and bowie knife are so fundamentally different that comparing them or saying one is better makes little sense. Sure, for one job the bowie knife might be better, and for another the kukri might be. It all comes down to what you want to use it for. It's not like they're so frequently used in some parts of the world for no reason. And easier to conceal; sure, the bowie knife might be easier to conceal on the straight parts of your body but the kukri can actually curve around your body instead of sticking out awkwardly, which also reduces silhouette.

For some boss fights I switch to heavy armor.
I also carry a shield with me.
What's my specialty?
EVERYTHING.

I did make an Unarmed character once. Skinny altmer, thin, long chin like a spear, super-serious face shrunk really small and high up. I grinded enchantment and alchemy for hours until I could sprint pretty much non-stop, take damage for days without going below half-health, and one-shot every enemy.

I've only ever played one character, my walking tank (as in predominantly uses heavy armor, 2h axes and fireballs) but I applaud your idea.

That said, I did make a Khajit assassin once. Died several times trying to backstab a chicken. Never again.

Really? Unless you're a pathetically low level and don't have internet access to find out an easy way to grind stealth, it's the easiest but slowest playstyle, next to heavy armor with any weapons.

Heavy armor is only slow if you believe it to be. If you put enough points in stamina you can just sprint almost permanently. That and the dash shout can turn your character into a true lightning bruiser.

Heavy Armor is for filthy casuals that find Legendary mode anything but weaksauce. My older brother only ever plays heavy armor with either duel wielding, sword and shield, or two-handed. I tried getting him to play light armor and he sucked. Even though I thoroughly explained the differences and what he needed to do differently. I also had him play as my god tier stealth character. Still managed to get detected, despite level 100 stealth with all the perks and muffled shoes. And he was terrible playing my god-tier mage.

K. By definition maybe, but do you split wood with a knife? No? But with a heavy duty machete you can. Do you have a hike through the amazonas and use your 15 cm blade knife to cut away the plants in front of you? No, you buy a light duty jungle machete for it that is made exactly for that situation, because everything else is retarded. Thats why I differ between knifes and machetes. But other than that, yes, machetes are on edged and that makes them technically a knife, gz

And by bowie knife, you mean actually a big knife I guess? As a bowie knife is defined by the shape of the tip and everything. Yes, youre right, no **** If you ever have to stroll through the jungle id recommend a light machete though, otherwise youll get cramps with no end from swining around your knife like a retarded Jason
By splitting wood I also meant actually splitting wood and not the thing were you stick your knife in it and then hit the knife with something to make it cut through the wood

Kukri mentioned! Swell with Bando!

Sorry I trained in the Bando martial art for years and the kukri was their primary weapon so I learned all about how to use one and ****. Keep one in my truck at all times! That thing will **** you up!

As for classification, we usually considered it as a curved shortsword.

An axe? No way. Just to be clear we're talking about the same thing, here is a picture.

A) Full length blade
B) No "head" of the axe
C) They can most definitely stab. Surprisingly well in fact, especially when wielded reverse grip, that thing will stab and slide right up behind the ribcage like butter.
D) Just look at it

Of course I know what a Khukuri is and I have the exact same historical model as in that picture and of course I know you can stab with it, but the Kukri is not meant as a stabbing tool like a dagger (thats what I meant). Imo, its more close to an axe because of the way the blade is bent opposed to the natural form of the human body, differently to a sword that has a straight edge. When I classified it, i didnt think of the way it looked but how it acts when you hit with it. If Id have to tell just from the looks of it, i would say short sword though because swords are classified by having two edges. Its more of a heavy duty machete, as I already said.

No worries man, just making sure we were on the same page haha. But yea I get what you mean, I guess as far as utility goes it is sort of axeish. In fact it was/is used to actually chop wood in certain places/situations so I guess that fits pretty well.

I was thinking of the european sword, yes. Everything that didnt had two edges wasnt labeled a sword in the middle ages Check out the Große Messer or Kriegsmesser for example, the stage between saber and sword back then. Messer means knife in german, just because its one edged Im relieved you got what i meant, I had difficulties saying it in english
