Knife made out human rib - Friday, August 04, 2017 4:57 PM ( #1 )
Here's a link to blade magazine's article about a woman who was diagnosed with thoracic outlet syndrome. Eventually, she had to have surgery to remove her first rib. She then had a knifemaker make a spey knife with her rib bone in the handle. Kind of macabre. http://www.blademag.com/knifemaking/woman-carries-knife-made-with-her-rib

Well, I guess that's one way to use an otherwise unwanted piece of medical waste . . . .  


I had a coworker a few years back who experienced a similar issue.  Part of his rib was growing into his spleen.  Once they removed the section, he had it put into a shadowbox, which also incorporated the X-ray which had originally diagnosed the problem.  As he was a licensed orthopedic professional, it helped boost our patients' confidence levels when they arrived for treatment!


But I don't think I've ever seen anyone turn an ex-bone into a knife handle . . . that is a first!

Ouch! I did not know that an adult rib could continue to grow, very interesting!

Another thing to worry about going into the hospital on top of them stealing your internal organs now.....
