Okay, if I did this right, there should be an attachment of the photo of the knife found in our parking lot today.
There's a set of keys attached to it, so I texted our landlord in case someone calls him to let them in because they lost their keys.
The question I have is, is there supposed to be two tines on this thing? Or is it a knife with the middle not there? Either way, the tip is broken off both of them.
I've noticed a lot of knives have holes in them. I'm wondering, is this a practical thing? If so, what purpose? Or is it more of a looks thing? Or a cost thing? Why do so many knives these days have holes in them?
Do you own a knife with a hole in it? What do you think of it?

That knife is broke and should be discarded before someone is injured by it.

The slit down the middle is part of what is pejoratively referred to as "tacticool" in reference to a design style that is based around looking movie cool and not actually useful.

If no one claims the keys in 30 days, I will attempt to do that. The trouble with throwing things away from my home is the number of homeless people who go through my trash. It is heart wrenching. The morning crew, the afternoon crew, the evening crew, the middle of the night with flashlights crew. 

Thanks for the response.

Aren't those two separate blades that fold into opposite sides of the handle?
I think the hole is for a lanyard or key ring to attach the knife to your belt or some such so you don't lose it.

it does look damaged and unsafe. If you have a couple of allen wrenches of the right sizes, it ought to be simple enough to take it apart, which is what I'd do before discarding it.

The "lanyard hole" is actually a "flipper" for rapid deployment of the (now broken) blade.  One blade, the top has a false edge to look cool.
