Yeah, back in the 80's there was a "ballistic knife" that sold for around $70 in several different survival and firearm magazines.

Does anyone have some pictures of one they could post ?

Thanks, Tim

Already have those =)

I was looking for better pictures than those.

An ex co-worker told me he saw them at a gun show. The seller was selling them without a spring, because it was illegal with one. Funny thing, a guy a couple of tables down just happened to be selling springs among other things. Of course, they look like they'd fit, but the guy at the table wouldn't confirm it.

The spring for the knife was just a good ol' buffer spring.

Those are illegal?

I have one, they are hmmm, somewhat difficult to control, but they will split a 2x4 easily enough

It was always just a toy for me

I thought they were put in the same category as switchblade knives. Some legislator wasn't too keen on the idea of their existence.

Not a ballistic knife but, back in the early seventies I remember seeing a catalog of custom made combat knives that held a small canister of tear gas in the handle. The idea that if the person ever got in a situation with another knife wielding opponent, he could improve his chances by blinding the other guy before moving in for the kill. I haven't seen or heard of anything like that since.

Also pretty cool; although at $895.00 (not counting the NFA tax) I think I'll pass.

I had one of those "Spetsnaz" knives back around 1986 that I paid $80 for. I sold it and have never seen another one. It had a knurled blade cover that screwed over the blade and it would fire the blade around 30 feet. It was a pretty neat conversation piece, but not too practical. I have no idea about the current legality of them.

They are now Hard-core Illegal under Federal Legislation, kind of fall into the same taboo category of plastic guns, pistol cal. AP ammo ect. You know the kinda stuff congress gets black mailed into banning because it is too easy to demonize any opponent of these "Evil" items in political ads.
