Giant Flick Knife

$29,141.77

About

A monumental and fully operational switch blade, of massive proportions made to exacting standards as an exhibition display piece designed by George Schrade of New York, who patented the safety pushbutton knife as early as 1904, and dating from the late 1930s. The grip, in cast iron, has been marbleized to simulate the traditional material and the blade swings open when the button is pushed, just like the real thing! A remarkable and unique decorative object, illustrated with a Brno chair for scale. Please note this knife is a large-scale model and the solid blade is blunt with a flat edge and is approximate 1 cm thick. The mechanism can only be operated by two hands, with caution as it is very heavy.
