    I meet a veteran with a crushed wrist in the shooting range a couple of weeks ago.
    He lamented that with his crushed wrist he cannot hold a knife to cut his steaks by himself, and therefore have to wait for his partner to cut them for him.
    I thought I can help, and here is what I came up with.

    Not trying to make it pretty, just wanted this to be functional.
    The blade and liners are 12C27, and the scales is stabilized bamboo flooring.
    The design should also be suitable for arthritis sufferers.

    A youtube video on the operation is here
