Demolition Knife

Post by just bob » Fri Jan 31, 2020 7:36 pm

I've seen other knives like this and always thought they were electrician knives. I really don't know what a demolition knife is but wouldn't it be brass or ? to prevent sparks? Maybe there is no such thing? ... 3888324375

Here's a laugher. Amazing what Ebay sellers can come up with. ... 1813211156

I remember a gentleman on another board I'm on showed a Herder version that was part of a Dutch sapper's kit. Might be where these come from. But, the Dutch often used that same knife interchangeably with Camillus TL-29s in various tool kits.

I have a Kissing Crane around here somewhere in this pattern. Quite a sturdy, strong knife. These are electrician's knives to me. To be suitable for EOD, it's gotta be plastic or copper-beryllium.
