Modern Russian "prison switchblade"

Post by last_vegas » Wed Mar 13, 2019 7:53 am

Here is modern newly made scale release switchblade with engraved criminal symbols: playing cards, stars - signs of thiefs. I don`t know 100%, if it was made in prison, or its just a selling point, but never seen this design. Hope you enjoy it.

[Looks like that one was made as a present or purely for sale. Sort of ceremonial...believe me, I saw a lot of very functional reliable weapon not for show but for business. Still very attractive but in a very different way. I will try to get some images right now so it's clear what I mean...

That's a neat one. I haven't seen one of these with a scale release before. And it has much more intricate engraving than any others I have seen.

100% was not made in prison, btw.

Thanks.
I think you are right, its just "prison style" nowadays we have a small industry, producing "criminal style souvenirs": playing cards, beads, backgammon. They are sold in gift shops, hookah bars and online. Knives are mostly online
