Jun 15 2009Alleged Anti-Stab Knife Won't Stab To Kill

stab proof knife.jpg

Allegedly this New Point knife was designed to be unable to stab someone to death. Questionable, I know.

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.

I call shenanigans. There's no such thing as a stab-proof knife. I could hands-down kill somebody (or something -- I'm looking at you, zombie robot) with this thing. Shit, one time I stabbed a guy to death with a brick.

No stabby-stabby? Meh, I'll have to stick to cutting throats from now on.

That's not a knife, it's a spoon...

I'm guessing that if someone was REALLY intent on stabbing someone that a blunt tip wouldn't really stop them...

"Oh gee... this knife has a blunt tip on it. I guess I'll just have to put off my murder-suicide until I can get a knife that has a sharp point on the edge on it. Aw shucks."

Next news: Murder with a Anti-Stab Knife!

Give me 3 seconds with that knife and I could kill someone.

Wow that sounds terrible, forget I said that.

"Thanks to Pew³, who doesn't need knives because the dude's made of lasers."

You're welcome!

PEW PEW PEW!

is it slash proof too? This is retarded.

whats to prevent you from sliding the blade across someone's throat? That'd be a fatal wound..

FAIL!

This is the dumbest idea ever!

funny, I can still see 500 ways to sever a limb... Or neck

What's the fun in having a knife that cuts down on accidents? Sharpen your skills if you really have problems with accidental injury. Sure, my mom could have used something like that once (key word: once) but it just slashed any doubts I had that the knife could be used as a home defense weapon. With the half-point on the blade, the whole thing seems a little dicey anyway. To think that someone would fail so hard by even trying to make a "safety knife" just cuts me to the bone.

Okay, I'll stop stabbing your intellect with knife puns.

Im sure if you were mad enough you could stab someone with a spoon. besides, why stab when you can cut an artery?

It doesn't matter how dull the end of a knife is, if I'm coming at your with a knife shaped object and a pretty fast velocity, you're getting stabbed.

DEFINATELY! BY NO MEANS!

Should you bring this knife to a gun fight.

Big Boss stabs with a fork!

"the idea is you can't inflict a fatal wound." i could slice your neck with it. or tie you up and cut your wrists. or make lots of cuts all over your body and you would bleed to death in my bed

@19

You're right. Put enough force behind anything and it will eventually penetrate flesh.

what‘s that?

I once stabbed i guy to death with a pillow...................... full of knives.

Stabbing is just one of dozens of ways you can kill with a knife or any other sharp object. Maybe this guy should just blunt his own head instead.

@29: Funny… you getting to share your prefecture with a billion other people! haahahah

Give it to a inmate and I bet they'll prove this guy wrong ....

*STABBITY STAB STAB STAB*

Ooh your either bleeding or you got a bottle of ketchup on your white t-shirt :)

The game takes less than 5 minutes to play!

I can totally slit someone's throat with this .. and kill them! .. no anti-stab knife will stop me !

@23 was it any good?

I'm sure this will sell like three units. Then people will go back to the old stuff. Besides, in America we have guns! And soon Lasers! And then after that robots with lasers! And two centuries after that robots, riding dinosaurs, shooting lasers.....from their eyes!

What's the difference between this and a knife with a broken tip?

Man, tell someone you made something that can't kill other people and the first response seems to be: "I can totally kill someone with it."

@16 - Really! 500 ways. You must be like a trained assassin or some kinda ninja!
1. cut off pinkie 2. cut off ring finger 3. cut off other pinkie

wasnt this invented as the "meat cleaver?

Um... no. You could still stab someone with this. Although It would be far more effective to chop into their neck, seeing as how it's less dense than say... veggies...
Dumb diddly dumbdumb!

You can't stab, but you can sure as hell chop!

FIRST!

This is good thinking.Is it necessary for a kitchen knife to have a sharp point?

This knife was tested on the same aparatus that's used for police stab vests. The round nose combines with the undercut makes it extremely hard to penetrate, especially through a layer of clothes. It is not impossible to kill someone with this blade - that is a misquote - its just a lot harder. Ask any ER doctor if they would rather treat a slash wound or a deep stab wound and I guarantee they'll so for the slash injury every time. It's intended to help reduce the risk of accidental stab wounds as well. By the way, why are you guys so wound up about it? A lot of carving knives don't have points and what about bread knives? Are you all expert chef's or something?

I'd like to test it out on GLADIATOR and all of the other spammers. Death to you all!

Odd shape, yet beneficial. Won't get stabbed by your klumbsy self nor a psycho who wants your gold.

Well...it's anti stab, but you can still cut things....besides knives are just saws in general.

can i run with this? i'm looking for something to hold on to when i run down my fire escape in the dark.

@45 Nice try but the real FBI just comes to your house if they think you did something wrong . . .

Wow! I've never seen anything like it until now. Is it really stab-proof?
