It looks like an ordinary knife but this blade can explode and instantly freeze a victim's organs.
The Wasp knife ejects a high-pressure gas through a needle in the blade at the touch of a button and the Met Police now fear it could end up on the streets.
'This knife will almost certainly kill and the Met must have intelligence that they are in circulation,' said a police source.
Senior police officers have been warned to look out for a new knife which can inject a ball of compressed gas into its victim that instantly freezes internal organs.
