Santa? Can I have one under the tree?

This puppy was seized along with a batch of other weapons in a raid by Australian Customs officials in Sydney yesterday.

The four-bladed knife has a silver-studded cuff wrapping around the wrist while the hand grasps the handle.

The handle is connected to two small flick-knife sized blades and two 25cm larger knives, with a total length of 50cm.

It is believed the knives were bought over the internet.

On the net!?


I want one!

Actually, with myluck, I'd cut off something vital if I got ahold of one of those things...

You're more likely to hurt yourself using this puppy than a ole fashion lead pipe.

You might find it here:

I looked around a bit, but couldn't find it. I have seen copies of the Batlath(sp?) there previously.

Here you go:

Only $77. It looks like a pincher bug's pincers, but I'm wondering how the heck you could kill someone with it.

Hmm, I'll have to remember this after my kids are all born, and hubby is reluctant to get a vasectomy...

My favorite part of the article was in the first sentence:

A FRIGHTENING, multi-bladed knife destined for Melbourne's streets

The streets? Wouldn't the police notice somebody with this thing strapped to their arm? And, if you tried to conceal it you'd probably cut off something important.
