I found this today and thought it was a bit interesting. A fishing knife that comes with 3 blades that are easy to exchange.

That's really cool Dan.

It's reminiscent of the Kershaw Blade Trader.It certainly appears to operate on the same principle.

These were made in Japan by a company named KAI.

Thanks.

You can still find these on ebay but you need to be patient as some sellers think they've struck gold.LOL

I have two of the three Kershaw Blade Trader sets. I don't have the Alaska set.  Ray S. Has all of them plus the Sheffield set and some others.

There may be more than three.I've seen several iterations of these,which leads me to this conclusion.

The two that I own have different blades as well as different handles.

There are three main styles, the six blade version, a three blade sport version, and an Alaska three blade sport version.  The originals came with wood handles, due to complaints about slipping and fit the second iteration came with rubber handles.  There is some variation in the blade option of the six blade version.
