SOG Key Knife: It’s a Key, It’s a Knife, No Wait–It’s Just a Knife!

SOG Key Knife


If the blade on your multi-tool just doesn’t cut it, then you might want to check the SOG Key Knife out. It looks like a key, although it’s a bit thicker than the average because it packs a small-but-still-functional blade right in the shaft. You can go for a plain blade or a Key Knife with a nail file if you’re the type who picks at your nails a lot.

The Key Knife will set you back about $10-$11, whichever type you pick.

The Great Shark Knife: Looks Good, Cuts Through More Than Just Water

Shark Knife


So this is the shark knife. The things that you can do with it are limited, but the awesomeness of how it looks strapped onto your arm might just make up for it. The knife features an array of razor sharp blades arranged and positioned this way and that. Clearly, its maker valued aesthetics more than function and safety, but that’s probably the whole point of coming up with something like the shark knife in the first place. If the wearer isn’t careful, it looks like he’s walking away with a cut or two care of his very own knife…

You can’t buy a shark knife, but you can make your own.


Spreadthat Butter Knife Uses Body Heat to Spread That Butter

Spreadthat Butter Knife

Butter isn’t the easiest thing to spread on a bagel if you just grabbed the tub from the fridge. The good news, butter lovers, is that it now gets easier with the Spreadthat Butter knife. It’s a futuristic-looking butter knife that’s coated in titanium. Aside from making the knife look cooler than the average, it also serves the purpose of conducting and transfering heat from your hand onto the blade. That way, the butter, jam, chocolate, or whatever it is you want to spread melts and in turn, becomes easier to spread.

The Spreadthat Butter Knife is available for $20.

The Batarang Twin-Blade Folding Knife Probably Won’t Get Bruce Wayne’s Seal of Approval


Everybody loves Batman. I mean, who doesn’t? Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy may have wrapped up last month, but people are still talking about how the movie ended and the future of the franchise, even until now.

Given its huge success, you can expect Batman-inspired stuff to crop up from now until they decide to reboot the entire thing. Stuff like the Batarang. It’s a twin-blade folding knife that features a bat handle. Unfold the blades and you’ve got a knife that will probably cut your hand while you try to use it for something else. In essence, the design looks awesome. When outstretched, the blades look like the bat’s wings, which was probably what they intended to do. However, it makes using the knife a wee bit more complicated.

Of course, you can just use unfold one blade at a time and use it like you would a normal knife. But still. The Batarang looks dangerously silly and will probably cut the palms of those who don’t really know how to use it.

Self-Heating Knife: 1 Cold Butter: 0

By David Ponce

We live in a pampered society where we get to gripe about our first world problems. High up on that list is cold, hard butter and that delicious toast awaiting its flavour enhancer. How are you to get the butter on the toast? Enter the Toastie Knife, invented by bread maker Warburtons in the UK. A heating element inside the blade heats up at the touch of a button and reaches a temperature of 41.8 degrees Celsius (107.2 F) in 20 seconds. This is apparently the optimal butter-spreading temperature and should have you covering a slice in all of 30 seconds.

The knife is just a prototype at the moment and there’s no word on when or even if it’ll be commercialized. But knowing it exists goes a long way to reassuring us that even the dumbest of our rich society problems will be taken care of eventually. Next on our wish list: some system that prevents the shower curtains from touching you as you shower.
