Five inch blade,
stainless steel for minimal cleaning,
the Jackal is nine inches overall of whispering
It will make you the one they are talking about.
The Jackal prepares you for terrorism,
food shortages, mercenaries, vigilante resistance,
monetary collapse, a dictatorship, and gun confiscation.
You'll have your finger in the frosting.
Equipped with blood-gutters, hollow waterproof handle
for storage of emergency items,
venom insertion ring, and compass in handle.
Hang the cape of history from your shoulders.
Sheath has steel retaining spring, and clip
for boot and belt carrying.
Defend your home and family.
Death from behind, beside, above and under —
Perfect for throwing out the money changers.
Hands-on combat power throwing
from mercenaries and professional assassins.
Used by the Baader-Meinhof group, the Basque Separatists,
and the Irish Republican Army.
This silent death-dealing piece of lethal exotica
is a wild goose laying an egg.
Fifteen ounces without sheath.
It's a penny from the top of the Empire State Building.
Knuckle-buster grip available. Kill or get killed.
Order the Jackal today.
Your blood will boil.
You'll be a yellow taxi.
You'll laugh your head right off.
