An improved blade-less knife

A Blade-less knife without a handle

I designed the perfect blade-less knife: a model without a handle to sell as a completely safe, portable and durable knife, suitable for people of all ages including children. Mothers could give it to their children and not worry that it would hurt them or poison them with heavy metal. It could be given to criminals for the safety of their victims. It could be provided to every solder of unpopular wars to prevent collateral damage to peaceful civilians. It could be safely carried in the pocket without fear of self-mutilation or cutting holes in pants. The present design comes colorless to match any decor.

I also designed a self-sharpening model, but have not perfected it yet since it still has some flaws. That improved model will have the added advantage to busy people with little spare time to maintain the knife in the peak of performance. Both models come with a durable cover, belt clip and case with easy opening. Three page instruction pamphlet helps describe how to use the tool.

While the tool is very useful having many safety and convenient features, given the present environment of government inspired fear, you would not be able to bring one an airplane since it would most likely be confiscated by home-land security.

       Picture?
DrCurry, Apr 25 2008
  

       this is the same type of knife I use to cut the cheese

       [++] two buns for the unbaked & beyond understanding idea on half bakery.

       Is the solder lead-free?

       [DrC] I believe there's already a picture - at the top of the page, between the HB logo and the category idea list.

       You've invented the cutless.
ldischler, Apr 25 2008
  

       Ah. Rather dense today (I blame the head cold I currently have).
DrCurry, Apr 25 2008
  

       Is your blade as sharp as anyone's mind? I think so...

       //you would not be able to bring one an airplane//
That's unfortunate. My improved blade-less knife wanted an airplane.

       As a pacifist, there's no way I can't violently throw a piece of dough at this idea.

       A jedi all-blade light saber that can only be handled by telekinesis?

       One pastry-less croissant for you sir.

       Perhaps there might be two of them.

       A knife without a blade and a handle?   

       What's left?
Cuit_au_Four, Apr 27 2008
  

       Enguard!   

       Not an idea. Not funny. Not there. I'm really not seeing it. (-)

       I presume this is the teaser for the real idea that you are about to post? Or are you actually proposing I cut my food with a frisbee.

       Ah, so you are selling replacement tangs, as this is the part of any knife that was excluded from your exclusions.
Giblet, Aug 14 2008
  

       Okay, I think I get it everyone! It's like "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!". You can only define it by what it's not, not by what it is.

       //Ah, so you are selling replacement tangs, as this is the part of any knife that was excluded from your exclusions.// [Giblet]   

       Tang's part of the blade, I thought. I figured he was selling a matched set of pommel & quillions, or maybe a tsuba.   

       Now, what *I* want is an edge without a blade (I would use it to slice _Cheshire_ cheese, of course).
