    Default Eickhorn Butterfly Knife

    Hi Guys, I sometimes see Eickhorn butterfly knives offered for sale with what appear to be folding brass handles with SS-Streifandie marked on them. Did Eickhorn actually make these knives or are they fake? An Internet search of SS-Streifandie brings up no results.

    That's because it is actually SS-Streifendienst.

    Never mind, though; as has been said above, these knives are complete fantasy pieces, and absurd ones at that.

    Still, just for the sake of accuracy: This type of knife is known as a pantographic knife. (See: Pantographic knife - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ) A butterfly knife is a different beast. (See: Butterfly knife - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia )

    Thanks guys, for all of your help. You just saved me about $200. When I googled what was written on the knife and no information whatsoever came up, I got real suspicious. I'm glad i found this forum.
