Geek Loot: John Connor Replica Knife from Terminator Salvation – For the Creepy Movie Enthusiast Woodsman

Behold the Terminator Salvation Knife Replica, perhaps the laziest piece of licensed cross-promotional merchandising in the history of ever.  I mean, hi. It’s a regular survivalist-type knife. That happens to say “Terminator Salvation” on it.

If merchandising were really as easy as slapping the movie’s logo on some object of minor-to-moderate interest from the film, don’t you think the marketers behind The Matrix would have branded their own sunglasses for the undiscerning, consumerist fanboys and -girls of the world?

Oh, wait. Bad example.

Anyway. At least there’s an overlap between the markets of sunglasses-wearers and movie fans. Just how many knife-enthusiasts also happen to be sci-fi film nerds?? (Don’t answer that. I’m happier and more secure in my blissful ignorance.)

So you’re not just an example of lazy merchandising, Terminator Salvation knife replica, you’re also ill-conceived!  Not to mention a bit lewd:

…features a 3 1/2 inch full tang 440 stainless steel blade with a resilient matte black finish, the Terminator Salvation blade insignia and a partially ridged blade back for dexterous maneuverability. The elegantly contoured full tang handle features durable black G-10 handle scales and a brown leather lacing.

I don’t know much in the way of knives, but when I hear about that much ‘tang, I fully expect Jamie Lee Curtis’ character from Trading Places to quote me an hourly rate.

    I like knives. But not that one. Ugly.
    Are there Terminator-ies who will buy anything branded with the name and dress up as regular looking muscular men and go to conventions?

    I went knife shopping today and found this knife, I’ve seen the movie and enjoyed it, but i’m not a collector of memorabilia and such. Anyways, the title on the blade is very lame, but holy sh*t, this knife is actually pretty awesome. Its perfectly weighted, heavy, and thick. Its a survival/fighting blade. I plan to find a way to get rid of the movie title, but it is a damn good knife and they should at least get credit for releasing a quality product.
