A few years ago, I read the novel "Hannibal" (Thomas Harris). Now, the main character uses this knife, the Harpy. The description caught my eye, and, on the spur of the moment, I decided to do an internet search.
Turned out such a knife existed, was available, looked extremely cool, and didn't cost an arm and a leg. Since then . . . well, let's just say Spyderco knives are the only ones for me. :-)
