How exactly does a late-night home shopping show hawking knives and swords become a cult classic? By combining potential purchases with ridiculous quotes, slightly insane hosts, and accidental stabbings, of course.

Cutlery Corner hits the network stations between 2 p.m. and 6 a.m. Eastern (or 24/7 online) on public access, broadcasting out of Chattanooga, Tennessee. The affectionately known “knife show” sells everything from pocket knives to massive swords like The Big Kahuna—which makes an entrance onto the screen by the host’s unique monologue: “Size does matter. And if you rub it, it might grow.”

The show has created such a following that YouTube is sprinkled with videos of the best bloopers and favorite quote compilations. Like this one, of a host getting stabbed in the side by a sword he accidentally breaks on the table.
