    First 'anti-stab' knife to go on sale in Britain

    I find the knife/sword/gnome banning in Britain objectionable, mostly because whatever they do there finds its way here next. Some of the quotes in this are priceless though.

    First 'anti-stab' knife to go on sale in Britain
    First 'anti-stab' knife to go on sale in Britain - Times Online



    The first “anti-stab” knife is to go on sale in Britain, designed to work as normal in the kitchen but to be ineffective as a weapon.

    The knife has a rounded edge instead of a point and will snag on clothing and skin to make it more difficult to stab someone.

    It was invented by industrial designer John Cornock, who was inspired by a documentary in which doctors advocated banning traditional knives.

    Mr Cornock, 42, from Swindon, said that the knife will cut vegetables, but will make it almost impossible to stab someone to death and will reduce the risk of accidental injuries. Tomato slicing injuries sure, but I've never known anyone to accidentally stab themself or others with a kitchen knife, you?

    He said: “It can never be a totally safe knife, but the idea is you can’t inflict a fatal wound. Nobody could just grab one out of the kitchen drawer and kill someone.”

    The knife is expected to sell for around £40-50 and has been tested with “very favourable” results by the Home Office’s Design and Technology Alliance - set up to research products that can deter crime.

    $50 says I can inflict a fatal wound.

    With that knife, or a pencil.

    I fail to understand how the former most dangerous people on the planet lost their way so badly.

    You can be the weapon, and the gun in your hand is a tool - or the gun is a weapon and you are the tool.

    Good thing I can't stab you with it, but I can certainly cut you like a fish with it.

    Before too much longer, the only legal bladed objects there will be those plastic scissors that little kids get in kindergarten. The local butcher shop will constantly be raided by cooks desperate for a decent blade.

    And not just a fatal wound. A fatal wound by stabbing.

    What's next on the list to make safe from being a potential weapon? I have an evidence room full of baseball bats, golf clubs , cane knifes , machettes and pool sticks.....

    Those knives make as much sense as non-alcoholic beer.

    Shhhh... be quiet. If someone over there reads your post, they'll be banning pencils next.

    You will know what is banned when the un-smiling faces in leather trenchcoats hammer on your door at 0300.

    Who told them? neighbor, child, spouse, parent.....well paid informant ?

    Anyone remember the STASI ?

    Old People, like me, may not be around to witness the destruction of our Nation. The rest of you may not survive the collapse. We all have the sworn duty to prevent it.

    No one here is going to take you up on your bet Maclean. LOL We'd surely lose. Seriously...a knife that cant stab you? Come on.
