Question of the day: Halloween Edition


Can it get more Halloween-related than the movie Halloween? Anyways, here we have young slasher Michael Myers after he made his first kill. We can all see that he used a kitchen knife, but the question is what knife did he use? This one he just grabbed from his kitchen, so it is probably just a run-in-the-mill kitchen knife. But what about later in life? Would he grab a higher-end knife to indulge his murderous desires? It would almost have to be, since I’ve never seen a blade sharpened in a slasher movie. I think Lil Mikey would enjoy using my Shun 8″ classic chef’s knife as he terrorizes people.

What was the best/most creative edged weapon in a slasher flick?


I hope everyone has a fun, safe Halloween, from all of us here at TTAK.

    The Buck 119 has featured in more “slasher” movies than any other knife. That’s my go to pick.

    1. Solid pick. I have one and figured I would test it, but I haven’t been able to find the thing.

        I’d edc mine if I didn’t get so many stares. It’s a great knife.

    When you think about it, the Kreuger blade glove is really crazy and would be my pick. Weird ass glove with blades on the fingers? Many a Mad magazine has spoofed the practical reality of it (how do you grasp something with two hands? Why not have two gloves? How many marshallows can you roast with the glove?), but to me it’s exactly something that a crazy dream demon would use.

  3. Jon M. says:

    And while it’s not too creative, Silent Hill’s Pyramidhead giant sword/glaive thing is really impressive and scary by merit of its size and wielder.

      I went as Pyramid Head this Halloween. I didn’t have that big of a knife in my collection but I did have a century-old 5′ saw.
