The absolute most smurvish of all knives

Ok, guys and gals, I gotta know.

In your opinion, what is "The Absolutely Most Smurvish Knife Of All Time" or TAMSKOAT?

Basicallly, the most nefarious, contrarious, insidious, hideous, worthless, hazardous, baneful, ungainly, fragile, perishable, faulty, fragile, ungrippable, dropworthy, shunworthy, unusable, regrettable knife out there?

(Particularly manufactured things--prototypes and one-off home-mades don't count).

 :cheers:

This was clearly made using the same pattern as Coghlan, but using low-grade cheesium.

oh my, yes. I wish there were an easy way to determine the grades of these things, as some on this pattern are clearly worse than others. I get them in my bulk lots. A lot. And sell them very cheaply as quick as possible.

A lot of Frost Cutlery's options. I've owned 5-6 over the years (mostly during my teenage years) that I actually used, and had lock failures within weeks. Of course, now, I avoid them like the plague (aside from a particular relative who keeps giving me them).

I've never seen a great one, but their quality is definitely all over the place. My Coghlan one put up with a lot. Despite being the second-worst knife I have ever owned, it is my only shelf queen.


The worst I've personally owned is Campy, the Coghlan's Camping Tool. It did much, much, much worse than Coghlan.

Yes, that's why I say some are worse than others, not some are better than others.  ;)

I get a bunch of them in, too. I haven't really test-driven them to see how they perform in the wild, but some of them definitely seem to be better made than others. I at least appreciate that they put their name on them, unlike dozens of the junk I get in that won't even so much as state that they're made in China, or anywhere else.  :dunno: I call those "Silent knives" because they don't say anything on them, no tang stamp, no MIC, no name, no stainless steel designation, nothing.
