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.

Pure, unadulterated awesomeness :)
$300 for that knife? You were robbed. I used to buy those in Tijuana for about $5 each.
Are you going to show us how the mechanism works? That is what this site is all about.
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!
It’s NOT a switch blade, it IS a Stilleto
How is that different than the Sandisk Cruzers… aside from being a whole lot bigger?
its NOT a stilleto it IS … O.T.F out the front duel action .
Cool USB. Technology is really helping us. Hope that there would be more posts in here. Looking forward for it.
