Tiny Knife Earrings: Vincent Van Gogh Had a Pair, But Lost One of Them
August 4th, 2011
Ok, that was bad. But the idea of earrings with tiny little functional knives probably isn’t a good one either.
But where there’s a will, there’s a way, and that’s exactly what we have here.
These stainless steel “You Are Sooo Sharp” earrings each have a miniature knife on them, which not only folds out, but is actually a functional blade.
When closed, they measure in at 7/8″ long, and the blade itself is 9/16″ long. It’s definitely sharp enough that you don’t want to poke yourself with it. In fact, you can use these to cut paper, tape, open envelopes or pop balloons. Just don’t try and cut a New York Strip with one. You’re asking for trouble.
They are definitely dangerous. In fact, the guys over at You gNeek who sell them say you have to be 18 or older to buy a pair. Whatever you do, don’t wear these through airport security, and definitely don’t leave them open while wearing them unless you want to feel some pain.
