My dad works on old buildings in a bad area, today he comes home with this thing saying he found it in a crawl space.

  1. Too long for a prison shank. It's too hard to hide in your space and on your body. More likely a homeless person's weapon. They get attacked/attack more than people realize and I've seen homemade weapons.

  2. Ex-ac/hvac technician here. Look up duct knife and duct sealant. The blade shape looks exactly like duct knife and the gray paste on the blade looks like dried duct sealant. This is probably a tool a tech put together and forgot about (or was too lazy to throw away properly).

  3. i was going to say the same thing. folks are always having to make do on job sites. that and i’ve seen similar duct knives crafted when someone realized theirs was missing.

  4. Yeah my guess is the tool was on its last limb and shit the bed during the job. The tech made a makeshift handle that would finish out the job and didn’t bother to bring the junk with him lol

  5. Yeah, I was going to guess insulation knife, but this makes more sense, especially since it's made from ducting material. Someone left their proper knife at home, so they made do with what they had on site.

  6. Why the hell did he bring the world's most obvious murder weapon home instead of taking it to the police?

  7. Yeah he “found” it. . . OP’s dad murdered some hobo out at a truck stop and kept the souvenir for years somewhere and now wants to get rid of evidence while bragging about it.

  8. Pretty certain the red is just paint and not blood (blood looks very different as it ages, much darker)

  9. Given the strange construction and the multiple colours on it (looks like orange and a very dark green), I wouldn't be at all surprised if it was just used for DIY or art. Like for clay or plaster or something.

  10. Should have taken that piece of evidence straight to the police, pretty sure they are missing it in some unsolved murders.

  11. Came home with it? Put it back, that could be a murder weapon for all you know. And it was hidden in a crawl space. Give it to the cops.

  12. Pretty smart to add a hilt. Stabbing is a messy business, don’t want to get cut on your own blade.

  13. That's some hood ingenuity there. Make a knife fit for stabbing, but with a guard to prevent cutting yourself from all the stabbing. "If there's no DNA, you aren't going away"

  14. Most likely a day laborer making due with what they had. That isn't blood on the wrapping and you can see some of the same color on the blade. That doesn't look like old dried blood at all. That red-ish coloring is from some sort of paint or sealant. Or maybe it is a murder weapon....who knows.

  15. And he didn’t immediately take it to the police? If there’s any DNA on that thing it could be linked to a cold case.

  16. Well, hate to say it but, your dad is a moron. He should have turned it over to the police as it clearly has blood on it. Never know what crime might be solved and what family might get closure from this.

  17. Why would he bring that home with him? If he wanted to show you he could’ve sent a pic.. this is wtf, dumb and scary

  18. Well, this is either a murder weapon or the Spear of Destiny... actually, I guess either way it's a murder weapon, really.

  19. I really think this is made up who finds something like this and goes "yeah, I should probably take this home and look at it, maybe get some DNA or finger prints on it while I'm at it."

  20. That’s definitely a murder weapon and he definitely should not have touched it, even with gloved hands. He really should not have moved it at all

  21. Good design. The problem i have when stabbing people is my hand sometimes slips off the hilt and i cut my palm. It makes me laugh everytime 🤣

  22. I think the whole thing is made up fake blood fake story what father would just randomly bring this to his kid? A serial killer begging to be caught? Call child protection not 911

  23. Now this is something the other tour guides won't tell you. In this particular cell-block, Machine Gun Kelly had what we call in the prison system, a "bitch". And one night in a jealous rage Kelly took a make-shift knife or "shiv", and cut out the bitch's eyes. And as if this wasn't enough retribution for Kelly, the next day he and four other inmates took turns pissing into the bitch's ocular cavities. (short pause) This way to the cafeteria!

  24. Looks like the first knife I ever made once I started working and got access to steel and grinding lol
