Looks like a nice solid knife. The swastika on the side is not a problem. Just because a 1930s fanatic used this symbol for an evil political party does not mean it should make everyone shudder. It was used for thousands of years as a symbol of peace. Many colours have been used by evil organisations but no way am I going to walk round naked

So by your logic you would also be okay with displaying a swastika on a say...a flag in a public place, or t-shirt worn at a rally, or maybe on the side of a new pair of Nikes? No--wait, a tattoo on one's forehead, like Charlie Manson? And I imagine by the same logic, it would be okay for a lot of white guys to hangout together around a burning cross wearing sheets over their heads--because all those KKK lynchings happened way back in the 1930s--1950s--1960s and were perpetrated by mostly evil guys? You know, Chernobyl didn't start out being a symbol for everything that could possibly go wrong at a nuclear power facility, but it is now--and that won't change for several thousand years. So regardless of where the swastika originated, or what it used to mean before the Nazis Party adopted it as their symbol, that discussion is pretty much irrelevant at this point--the symbol is radioactive now, and will be for a few thousand years to come (one hopes). So no, you can't say it means something old or something new--it means what it means. As to whether the logo on this knife is a swastika or a swastika-like symbol by intention, cultural ignorance, or bad taste, is unknown at the moment. But there are enough similarities between the two symbols for a thinking person to notice them. You seem to notice them but not mind, while @bambam67 seems to be having a Chernobyl-like meltdown every time someone states the obvious. I'd say both reactions are a little curious...

no one has stated the obvious except those that have stated they are NOT swastikas.. and 2 original replies arent meltdowns..unless you have a small sack filled with nothing but air.

Turns out what you think you know, is much less than what you do know, and that was pretty slim to begin with. Meanwhile the people who care one way or the other has dropped to zero.

I think you are presuming. I merely said swastika should not be the domain of one evil political party. All the rest is your own fantasy even if the symbol was not a swastika. I do not believe one should be influenced by political correctness, because it changes so frequently that all it does for those who follow it is to leave them confused and weak, which malevolent political parties exploit. I have no intention of being a boring humourless person who is entrapped by my own political correctness
