This is probably one of the coolest weapons we've ever seen. Also known as the "Apache Revolver" or "Apache Knife Gun," this 3-in-1 weapon was manufactured in a limited quantity in the 1870's. The weapon got it's name from a prominent French gang known as the "Apaches" who were known to have used this particular weapon often. Allegedly, these gangsters got their name for being compared to the American Apache tribes in their cruelty.What may look like just brass knuckles can become a knife or even a gun with just a few quick adjustments. It's small enough to fit in your pocket, but if you're confronted in any way, you can pack a serious punch... or, you know, just shoot. Or stab. The options are endless.The only drawback is that there is no barrel on the gun, which obviously limits the range. On the other hand, this weapon was basically designed for close combat, so you don't exactly need that feature when the bad guy is two feet from you. A barrel would also be harder to conceal after everything is folded in.Only about 7,000 of these were actually produced, so the weapon is extremely rare, and it would cost you at least over $1,000 to have it in your personal collection.
