Default Blade with a weird point

Hi everyone !

I'm pretty sure I've seen another blade with a similar point before, but I can't remember where, anyone have an idea ?

Thanks in advance for your help !

Hello,

Wherever you saw it, It must have been also a fantasy/touristy blade.

There were a couple on this forum on some Indian/Afghan knives if I remember correctly.

I saw a similar one a long time ago and was told the tip/point was intended to break off in the unlucky recipient.--- bbjw

I have heard of similar, called a "Harpy", but not at all sure how historical it is.
