With this one the old saying "twist to remove" seems a bit redundant.  
The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it.

Apparently that knife caught a whole bunch of flack for being to "weaponized"

Man, and I thought that my Besh Wedge was far out.  That is one super cool knife.  I can't see any good reason it should be banned.  A lot of old time bayonets have three edges and the twist is no more ferocious than the wavy edges on a Kriss.   I'd love to have one if I could afford it.

I actually think the knife looks kinda cool and interesting, but at the current asking price I sure won't be picking one up anytime soon.

Honestly IMO (That many time on many issues is not the same as the majority here) That thing is frigging awesome.I would never consider it worth even probably a quarter of its price but in looks alone im sold. .. . WTF is up with Microtech,seems I get an email daily from a place im on the mailing list for talking about "New Microtech knives on sale now"

Like I better jump on it quick,I hardly even bother clicking on it to look ever anymore,almost all of em look the same,and crappy and are like at least 4x than I would even consider spending on anything short of adamantium lol,mabye some sorta lightsabre that could fit in my pocket.I just dont understand,who are their fanbase they obviously must have one.

As I recall (could be completely wrong) diamond shaped blades violate human rights laws as being overly incidious on the battle field.  Has to do with the inability to stitch the wounds when in the hospital.  I'm pretty sure this would fit that bill.
     I understand the idea but over $700 for a knife that does nothing but stab, is made of stainless steal and is probably illegal and I will never use, as I don't plan to be stabbing people in the dark, is just insane for me.  For that matter virtually any knife will stab and actually be usable on a daily basis.  

     Just not for me.

  Am I bad for wanting it even more now? Sorry but if I have to f'n stab somebody, I really don't want them to survive. Too bad its decimal place is about 2 digits in the wrong direction! lol

Stitching a .50bmg hole, or stitching back a dozen of body parts pulverized by a bomb or shell is probably a piece of cake in comparison to a dagger stab, sure. Those who outlawed daggers and cruciform or triangular blades are just ****heads. It would be like sending people in jail for years for having kissed one time on the cheek an unwilling girl, but saying gang rape followed by throat-slitting and rape again is perfectly legal and decent.

Frankly, I doubt the twisting makes it more efficient than a regular flat hollow triangle blade like there was on small swords and such. The cross-section area seems relatively important, more than a regular dagger, and the twisting I would say tends to make penetration even worst. The point is not acute at all compared to any knife, and I think thick clothes could stop it, as it works on pure penetration, while the edges of a dagger cut the material. So not only is it extremely exepensive, but I also think it's a poor weapon. And it's bulky. I'd much rather have a Peacekeeper 1 or Tai Pan, or even the matching dagger to the bastard sword.
