 Hawaii Case Law:
- "'Other deadly or dangerous weapon' is limited to
  instruments whose sole design and purpose is to inflict
  bodily injury or death... A 'diver's knife' is neither a
  'dangerous weapon' nor a 'dagger'. 'Deadly and dangerous
  weapon' is one designed primarily as a weapon or diverted
  from normal use and prepared for combat... Cane,
  butterfly, and kitchen knives are not deadly or dangerous
  weapons... Sheathed sword cane and wooden knuckles with
  shark's teeth were 'deadly or dangerous weapons..."
