A Gentleman's Claw

Challenge #41 in the Language Of Light series. Hosted by Deleted pending purge.
Challenge has finished
An old synonym for pocket knife. It's another item (aside from lighters and watches) where designers never seem to get out of ideas! A pocket knife is one handy tool; it is not a weapon. Only more primitive among us tend to think about it the other way around, but then, those are hardly photographers. Anyway: show us one well-made pocket knife, and make the photo as interesting as can be. Think about it as if you were creating a photo for an advertisement. But mention the manufacturer in the comment field, if you think it's deserved. And observe all the rules, so your entry won't be cut out... :)
