The Jagdkommando is the best one! (Ist hier eigentlich englisch-Pflicht? Das wird jetzt schwer:)
Beside the cool german name, I really love the 3 blades and how its formed! It just looks so cool! Also that you can use it as a baton (Schlagstock?) could be very helpful. As I'm an survival-Freak I would put matches or batteries in the extra-trade (fach?) on the bottom.
I also like the first two scalpels/knifes but as they would probably break when you try to stab I better choose the Jagdkommando :)

(Hoffentlich ist es nicht schlimm wenn ich auf deutsch schreibe) Also ich habe mich für das Jagdkommando entschieden, meiner Meinung nach ist das die effektivste Waffe. Die anderen haben bestimmt auch gute Aspekte, jedoch auch viele Nachteile (Abbrechen vom Messer und bei der Nummer 5: sieht zwar gut aus, mag bestimmt auch verletzend sein, doch dafür muss man eben seinen Gegner erstmal erwischen, doch das ist nicht so einfach wenn die Kugel nirgends stabil dranhängt. Das war auch einer der Gründe, warum eine solche Waffe im Mittelalter nicht verwendet wurde, damals wurde die Kugel nur an einen Stock befestigt, was eine hohe Zielgenauigkeit mit sich brachte). Entscheidende Nachteile kann ich beim Jagdkommando nicht erkennen: Es ist bestimmt nicht zerbrechlich, sieht handlich aus und ist bestimmt am schmerzhaftesten.

I think the homemade "steelball on a saw" would be the most effective because you are always far away from the action because of the stick, and it can do two things, slice a throat and smash a skull

Well, scalpel is really sharp, but quite impractical for anything else than cutting meat. Second one is nothig special, just really large folding knife. Jagdkommando looks mean, I wouldn't like being stabbed with that. It's most sick weapon of these. Maybe the chainsaw Morgenstern, but the cutting chain bends only in two directions, I can't really see the use. The ball on the end is more dangerous, than the chain itself.

The blunt attack and sawing action of the morning star... of COURSE I would select that one! :D

It was between the baracuta and the jagtech for me, but I think the jagtech is more terrifying, therefore more badass. With the baracuta you would need more accuracy.

I really like the piranta because it is something you might easilly carry around in your pocket. Wouldn't mind one myself.

I think the most badass bladed weapon is the jagdkommando because not only does it have many uses such as water proof storage, a club and a 3 bladed stabbing device but it is also just a plain killin machine made for damage and nothing else. Well it is issued to the armed forces after all.

Piranta

I like the Piranta. its such a small blade and can be so easily concealed up a sleeve or jacket pocket. It would make short work of someone from behind / sneaking attack. The only reason for this above the barracuda is it's so concealable.

jagdkommando Because it is the meanest

well lets start with its sheath you could kill someone without even drawing the blade. menacing three blades perfect for a truly killer blow with maximum pain and effectiveness this makes it truly the meanest. it also has some nice craftsmanship on the blade and sheath and the final reason it shares the characteristics with trench knives made to be used in the meanest and gritty conditions of one of the most brutal wars.

the other knives are too elegant for this category especially the scalpel blades when compared to this.
the flail is the only one that compares in the brutality but it looks less evil.

My vote is the Jagdkommando.
Although the first two are sharp as bell, they're not really more than any other folding exactoknife. Way cooler though...
The espada is more of a decorative gimmick. Not useful at all.
The morning star....uhm. that's a typical joerg thing. Dead funny (literally) but the usability...meh. perhaps using a regular chain and add some pieces of the chainsaw at the end. (look up Kettengeißel)

So...the Jagdkommando it is. I know this kind of blades from medieval replicas and we have tested them against various materials.
The impact is devastating and we pierced through untempered steel plates (2-3mm), chainmail (also riveted) and various fabrics with ease. Tempered steel took a bit more, but mounting the blade to a pole gave it the extra weight to pierce even 2,5mm tempered steel (chainmail and padded garment...) - also look up "panzerstecher" and "gnadgott"

By the way...aren't those blades illegal in Germany? Or was it just bayonets with blades like these?

Definitely the Jagdkommando is the meanest blade. I'd like to know the balance so I could practise throwing it into stuff. It would probably tumble too much though but still, super cool blade.
