This Is Easily The Weirdest World Record In Kentucky
Kentucky holds lots of pretty impressive world records: our state is home to the
country’s oldest bourbon bar, the world’s biggest baseball bat, and the largest parade in the U.S. But if you’re looking for the oddest line item on Kentucky’s world record resume, it’s this attraction in Radcliff. This town is home to what’s easily the weirdest world record in Kentucky, and it’s a roadside attraction you must see to believe.
Have you ever wondered about the world's largest pocketknife? It's a common thing to ponder.
And guess what? The world's largest pocket knife is right here in the Bluegrass State! You'll find this record breaker at Red Hill Cutlery in Radcliff, Kentucky.
Standing 34.5 feet tall and weighing in at a whopping 6,200 pounds, this massive monolith in front of Red Hill Cutlery is a true testament to the power of the human imagination. Dream big, we say!
(The price tag was as big as the knife itself, costing upwards of $55,000!)
This quirky roadside attraction certainly makes one take notice of Red Hill Cutlery. This store specializes in cutlery, and truly is unlike any other knife store you've ever been to.
For instance, you'll find display cases with antique cutlery and informative plaques, similar to what you'd find at a small museum... because in addition to selling knives, this store also doubles as a pocketknife museum!
There are also fun photo opps for those looking to commemorate their visit to this world-record-holding establishment.
There are also some weird displays that pretty much defy any logical explanation, yet also fit right in.
So why the larger-than-life pocketknife? The idea started when the family began building the Radcliff location for Red Hill Cutlery and its American Pocketknife Museum, as a way to bring folks to the new store.
And you know, it worked! What a fun reason to visit Radcliff, home to most intriguing -- and yes, weirdest -- world record in Kentucky.
