Anyone ever heard of an issued knife designated as a "thumb knife"?
The Yanks issued a 'Benchmade Presidio' thumb operated flick knife. It was worn clipped to the thigh rig and was used to cut open body armour to treat wounded personnel.

Which begs the question: Why not issue them with hook knives so they can't self harm?
It is VERY feckin sharp.
