Trick Knife

Postby tjmurphy » Wed May 12, 2010 12:32 pm

Just scored this on the 'Bay. An Imperial Trick Knife or Magicians Knife. JohnnieRotten posted one of these a while back and since then I have been looking for one that looked in good shape. It's certainly not the Henckles that Johnnie posted but it is U.S. made.

What is the trick to it? ::shrug::

(Case has the different handles - not real tricky) ::dang::

Well, I think this is the way JR explained it. The blade has no nail nick. To open the blade you have to hold the knife perpendicular to the groung and push the blade in which releases a blade catch and the blade opens. To close you reverse the direction of the knife (rotate 180 degrees from the opening position) and close the blade and it locks in. Or something like that. I'll know better when I have it in hand. Bottom line, it will not open as a conventional PK.

uyou can shake it end to end or flip it and it will unlock and lock. You have to fiddlearound with it but it will come easy after some practice

Hold knife with blade tip down, push blade closed, it will lock. Hold tip up, push down on the blade, and it will unlock and open.
I've never seen one with stainless handles.. Pretty cool TJ. I wonder if they are solid or shell handles? Mark

These knives are great fun to hand to someone and ask, "will you open this knife for me?" ::ds::

Don't know Mark, they look solid but looks can be decieving, will find out when it gets home.

Case has some modern knives they call a Magicians knife. Basically one side is red bone and one is green bone....or one side is pearl and one side is black pearl for example.
