Primitive knife, in case you want to get rid of your fingers

Have you ever found something really badly designed? Something which obscurity of its functions makes it hard to understand its use? Something almost unusable to a point it would drive you mad using it too often? Perhaps, a fool's design? Then you have come to the right place. Post your findings here and help making the world a saner place.

Fool's design.

Primitive knife by Michele Daneluzz. (Source) - in case you want to get rid of your fingers.

We could export them to african medicine women to do female circumcisions. It would probably be better than the rusty spoons they sharpen up to do it currently.
