DIY USB Switchblade

MAKE Flickr photo pool member Andrew made an awesome USB switchblade, he writes –

I bought this knife kit from bladeplay.com, it’s called the NATO Tomb Raider (they don’t carry it anymore) I think it cost like $5 or something. I wanted to understand how my $300 Microtech Ultratech worked, but I didn’t want to take that one apart.

I figured out how it worked, so after serving that purpose I reworked the innards, machined a new sliding mechanism and attached a 2gb USB drive to it. James Bond still carries a regular flash drive around, like a loser.

  1. I had a hell of a time searching for pictures of internals of that knife, and came up with nothing! All I know is it has spings and slides.

    Gotta post the internals!

  2. Cool USB. Technology is really helping us. Hope that there would be more posts in here. Looking forward for it.
