Man, I really like that. It appeals to my inner adolescent who thought dagger blades were the coolest thing ever. There's also a symmetry to it that really appeals to my OCD lol. I like the opening style, pretty unique. The Celtic knot engraving sure doesn't hurt either. This is the kind of thing I'd collect if I were into that sort of thing.
It was the symmetry that drew me to it also....I do love me a dagger (Currently have a Gerber Mk2, issue Fairbairn-Sykes, CRKT Sting and Kershaw Trooper lying about the house somewhere).
Sadly, while the mechanism is cool looking, it's mechanically flawed in the ways I note...Any opening mech which encourages 'flipping' but in that flipping absolutely guarantees edge and point damage is really not a great idea.
Warhammer 40000 is- basically- Lord Of The Rings on a cocktail of every drug known to man and genuine lunar dust, stuck in a blender with Alien, Mechwarrior, Dune, Starship Troopers, Fahrenheit 451 and Star Wars, bathed in blood, turned up to eleventy billion, set on fire, and catapulted off into space screaming "WAAAGH!" and waving a chainsaw sword- without the happy ending.
