    First 'anti-stab' knife

    What a crock! They forgot to take the edge off the knife so someone couldn't slash someone else!

    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.

    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.

    This is what happens when little thought is put into something.

    So from now on the bad guys will slash their victims to death instead of stabbing them. And I'm betting that if you ram that thing into someone's gut its going to penetrate just like any other knife. Amazing how stupidity can override the obvious.

    Why would God invent something like whiskey? To keep the Irish from ruling the world of course.

    Utopia

    I'm going to start working on an axe that won't decapitate someone, a hammer that won't bash in a skull, a screwdriver that won't gouge an eye out, and rocks made out of marshmallows. . .
