    Can we make fun of this abomination or will you be offended?

    Why don't you tell us about it, and why you chose to build it like you did?

    This dagger I made myself from 1095 flat bar stock. The crossguard is genuine 360 brass alloy I also made myself from flat bar stock. The handle is ash that I dyed russet. The sheath is my design and I crafted in genuine leather. It is a functional plug bayonet as well as a close quarters dagger for silent kills. It has the symmetry needed to twist into victim without releasing grip.

    You do realize that plug bayonets went out around 1670, don't you? And I don't think that would fit the bore of a modern rifle.

    Looks like it would work in a shotgun, though.

    Next thing you're gonna tell us that percussion revolvers are obsolete.

    I understand the needs of marketing, but for once could we just say "less noisy kills" or, "promises 20% less groaning kills" ?

    I don't think you will be able to twist this knife. The handle is too small vs. the width of the blade. You won't be able to apply enough torque to make it twist when inserted. Rule of thumb is to make the handle at LEAST as wide as the blade. Personal experience says wider is better.

    Don't take my word for it. Get a big pork butt, strap it down and stab it. With a DEEP thrust, I doubt you will be able to turn it.

    How’bout we pause for a second and welcome you to WT. Guys here can be opinionated but you should want that. In this case you asked what we thought. As a home brew that you sweated to make I’m sure it is special to you.
