Few logos in the history of design carry the clout of Nike's Swoosh, a brand mark that's been repurposed endlessly for everything from tattoos to eyebrows. Now, thanks to New York City-based artist Tom Galle, there's even a Swoosh knife.
Galle created the weapon as part of a series he calls Corp Gear, which includes a set of brass knuckles fashioned after McDonald's Golden Arches and a crowbar in the shape of Facebook's logo. He's selling 10 pieces of each, with the Nike knife going for $2,500.
Will Galle get sued by Nike for his appropriation of its iconic logo? The brand is generally quick to protect its intellectual property, so it's certainly a possibility.
Galle is taking orders for the Corp Gear collection directly via his email.
