Jason Voorhees’ Hypothetical Pocketknife Is EDC-Legal In Germany. Maybe.

Image courtesty The Slingshot ChannelJoerg Sprave is the proprietor of YouTube’s Slingshot Channel, and the jovial German is quite a character. He’s got an imagination and mechanical inventiveness that’s nearly Mythbusterian in its coolness, and he loves knives.

This video was posted a few days too late for Halloween last year, but it’s right on time this year. I was expecting this contraption to disassemble itself (with medically significant consequences) when he chopped the coconut, but what can I say? He came, he saw, he chopped. The dude definitely has mad fabrication skillz.

But is this thing really EDC-legal in Germany? I couldn’t possibly comment, although it would be fine in Vermont.

    Man, that band assisted machete blade snapping shut that close to his digits made me cringe. But if he did lop off his digits I’m sure that his next video would be of his new Freddy Kruger hand he made himself.

      Probably with a wrist mounted, automatic slingshot that shoots lawnmowers.

        Not just the blades. the whole frickin lawnmower. We ought to send this guy a box of yard darts and see what he comes up with.

          Wait until tomorrow. Literally.

    Doesn’t surprise me that it would be legal. He implies that lock blades are illegal. But that could be if over a certain length?

    Believe it or not, this would be legal in California. No limit on length for folders, or for openly carried fixed blades….though some cities have their own rules, and public buildings, and I believe in K-12 only pocketknives of 2.5″ or lesss are allowed.

    Is there any state that, as a state, limists length?
