Default unusual knife shapes / designs

It's interesting to see what kind of different knife shapes / designs are out there. If you have any that are a little different post a picture!

These two are the more unique of what I own. The all metal one with the rectangular sheath is made by Giant Mouse and is model GMF1. 2.6 inch blade. Designed by a couple of Danish guys, and they have the knife and sheath made in Italy.

The one with the wood handle is made by Grohmann, and is their #1 Original, D.H. Russell belt knife. 4 inch blade. It's made in Canada. Many years ago, back in the 60's & 70's, Herter's sold a cheap copy of it and called it the GLH knife.

Don't think I have any unusually shaped knives. They're pretty standard. Got a tanto and a drop point.

The closest thing to an unusually shaped knife is probably my Wharncliffe'd Delica, but even then it's not that unusual, I don't think. It's a custom mod, so different than what Spyderco offers on their own Wharncliffe Delicas. I think it's a unique profile and really like it, enough that I've thought about having my other Delicas given the same treatment, or getting an Endura and having it done.

Here's a photo. I guess you could ignore it if you don't think it qualifies.



While I don't have one (yet!), when I read your topic my first thought was of the Tom Brown Tracker knife. I always thought it was an interesting design. Maybe this would qualify for this thread if my Delica doesn't.

The top one is fairly unusual; the bottom one is much more standard.

I have no idea what this knife is, so I can't really post a pic of it, but I've seen a knife that honestly looks like a sharpened pie-server.
At first I thought that it was a joke, like an improvized weapon, a shank made from an otherwise harmless piece of cookware, but apparently it's a serious weapon because when I joked around about it folks were very upset with me.

I don't know if this is it, but your post made me think of the Applegate Smatchet.

VT Shooter—the two best knife deals in the world are the Canadian Belt Knives (seconds) and the Mora Basic/511.

Nope, that's not it. The knife I'm talking about literally looked like a sharpened pie-server with an ivory handle.

I know it's not by any means exotic as what some people have or use, but I find my buck akuna 402 to have a unique blade. You don't see many of these full tang sweeping blade skinners made with a point like this one, and even less that are made with quality S30V steel right here in America.

I've been saying it for years; the Akuna is Buck's best kept secret, maybe even the best kept secret of the entire knife world. The price point is the real kicker, it'll make you wonder why the custom knife guys need $600+ for their blades...

That Akuna makes me think of some of the Persian-inspired blades I've seen. Very cool. Here's an example from Emerson Knives:

Thanks.

I think they look nice, and honestly, I find the blade design VERY useful for most purposes.

The Flash Batch, (1250 made,) Spyderco Bombshell is kinda odd looking, but beefy and fits in the hand well. It's based on a Michael Burch folder.

Does it look like a Spyderco Maddox?

A Kriss blade is definitely odd

The Randall model 19 BushMaster’s proportions are pretty odd. 1/4” thick 4.5 inches long. It’s short and stubby. The cutting edge doesn’t have a flat spot, it’s a continuous ark its entire length. Then the long stag handle make this particular one look even more out of proportion.

This one's been around quite a few years, and has been handy to have several times. Imperial brand back when they made them in the U.S., and were quality made.

This knife may not look uncommon with today’s endless designs.
I designed this blade in 60s. This was before custom knife craze. Several smiths refused to make it. They wanted to hawk their designs. Steve Meyer of Alvin, Texas took it on. For deer hunting I have carried Canadian Trapper for over 50yrs.

Becker Knife and Tool had a couple of trailing point designs that are less dramatically upswept and very attractive. They didn’t sell very well, and were discontinued. Now that you can’t get one anymore, they are much sought after.

The Varusteleka Skrama and Mini Skrama are a little out of the ordinary. The Skrama design traces back to the Seax, the short sword that gave the Saxons their name.

The more conventional drop point with the Skrama is the Jaakkaripuukko, a somewhat unconventional name.

Smatchet! Is the correct answer to almost any question asking for a recommendation for a knife.

Watch some episodes of Forged in Fire on the History Channel. You’ll see dozens of odd shapes.

This one is pretty odd. It’s a Benchmade Triage. It’s designed as a first responders knife. It has a straight tip, but instead of just lopping the point off a standard blade. It has an “opposing bevel” top of the blade is beveled on one side the bottom on the opposite. They converge at the tip to give a flat straight tip to pry on.

Here is an oddball knife shape, the Corvo.

It is a FAMAE manufactured Chilean Special Operations Brigade knife.

I have a variety of expensive cooking, pocket and field knives. My mother bought me a cheap stainless steel ulu knife when she visited Alaska. I'm sure she paid well for it because she bought it in a tourist shop, but it is not fancy steel and has a machine engraved wooden handle. But it chops herbs like no other! None of my expensive knives chop herbs like that ulu. I cannot post pictures but just Google "ulu." Find a cheap one, that is mine.

Hand made in the early 70's carried it as the skipper on a 65' sportsfishing boat. Was frequently dealing with tangled lines, especially when salmon trolling with 40 customers aboard, so cross draw sheath for quick grab, forward finger slots for fine control of the blade when selectively cutting fishing line, preferably not the one with the King salmon still on it.

Knives of Alaska makes some unusual blades. I lost mine in my 2018 fire but I might get replacements. They make Ulus, too. A good Ulu is excellent for slicing and dicing.

I like the short, wide blade with very little point for most everything. My custom job I didn’t want to beat around as everyday knife so I made me a copy of the blade shape. The blade is much lighter carbon steel and slabs are walnut. Whole knife is much lighter.

Here’s one you may not seen.
It’s a Life Raft floating knife.
It was glued inside the lifeboat.

Now that's a unique knife design. I like how the blunt end curves downward to keep the blade safe from accidentally puncturing the raft if dropped. What are the holes for? Lightening cuts?

I think my spyderco yojimbo 2 has a strange blade. I know why it’s made the way it is but that makes a strange looking knife. Love it though!

Not sure about the holes.
They seem to be purposely done and positioned.
You would think that adding an additional half-inch of cork would offset the weight removed.

My custom knife. Made it several years ago with help from my friend and master blade maker Mike Vellekamp. He hosted a knife making class and a group of us jumped at the chance.

Design is totally mine, we drew our designs on the first day. Mike helped me with the blend, because I made a challenging design and wanted it to look like it did in my head.

Scales are PW Carbon Fiber that I got from work. Used to work in aerospace manufacturing. This is the same material used on 787.

Knife is about 10" and includes multiple striking points.

Here's another unusual knife that I bought in a lot with a few other knives several years ago.

This was a British 1907 Enfield bayonet that was heavily modified (probably in the field) to make a fighting knife.  This bayonet was used primarily during WWI.

Default Weird homemade knife

My wife's uncle was part of US occupying force in Japan after WWII. He and his wife fell in love with Japanese culture and brought back several paintings, outdoor art and this knife. It was in his ditty box along with several pictures of the gliders he flew in Europe during the war.

Wood scale (1 piece), guess knife is set into the wood as the Mother of Pearl dot you can see is not a fastener, just surface mounted. The sheath (if its wood does it have a different name than sheath?), is 2 pieces held together by plastic like bands. Mother of Pearl decorative dots are only on one side.
Don't know if he got it in Europe or Japan, the MOP decorations make me think Japan.

Every time I see it , it reminds me of the "FRAGILE" lamp from "A Christmas Story"

Knife looks Philippine. They made knives out of Jeep springs. Wooden sheaths with MOP inlays. They got pretty fancy for tourist trade right after WW2. The ones made during the war were plain.

This is my wife's mushroom Opinel hawk blade mushroom knife. It has a boars hair brush for dusting off the mushrooms.

I took this photo today of her knife ad a small clump of oyster mushrooms we found today while hiking in an aspen forest. DINNER!
