First Anti-Stab Knife Prevents Deadly Kitchen "Accidents"

Illustration for article titled First Anti-Stab Knife Prevents Deadly Kitchen Accidents

With gun laws being a little stricter in the UK, the weapon of choice for day to day murdering can often be found in the kitchen. That's why the first anti-stab knife is now ready for sale there.

As the designer notes:

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.


Really? Couldn't you go all Jack the Ripper on someone's throat with it? At any rate, if your wife or husband decides to replace your current knives with these anti-stab versions, that really says something about how they feel about you. Either they have the wrong impression, or they are on to you. [New Point Knives and Times Online via Fark]

I fail to see how this will not be able to stab. Sure, the point is rounded, and that little notch would catch a rib, but what about in the abdomen? Or the neck? Or what about it being deflected off a rib, and twisting around so that it slips between two ribs?

I'm guessing this thing is just as deadly as a regular knife. Besides, the duller something is, the messier the wound, and the harder it is to treat.

Deadly fail.
