If this doesn't take the cheese I don't know what will. What is next for the nanny nation, a "Bash Proof" stick? No more tree limbs, cricket bats, hurling sticks etc. Give me a break. So many potential weapons so little time.


The first "anti-stab" knife is set to hit store shelves in the U.K., designed to work as normal in the kitchen but ineffective as a weapon.



Cornock, 42, from Swindon. England, 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. "It can never be a totally safe knife, but the idea is you can’t inflict a fatal wound," he said. "Nobody could just grab one out of the kitchen drawer and kill someone."


Not very effective at preventing someone's throat from being slit from ear to ear.

It won't be long before the UK has an rock roundup and tree- clearing.

Can't throw rocks to hurt or tree limbs to smash someone over the head anymore.

Soon people will be required to use helmets when they go out (and inside their homes when big brother cameras are installed in every home)

HA! There are other ways of killing people with knives other than stabbing them to death. I bet they sell these on infomercials. In no time at all, they'll be across the pond and Billy Mays will be yelling at us about how great they are.

Billy Mays, now THERE is a true conspiracy. Each time he opens that overworked mouth of his to tell us 'the secret...' millions of brain cells die.

Good idea. Using plastic glasses does reduce 'glassings' in pubs, and I've known people get hurt with kitchen knives during domestic arguments .

The 'they'll just use something else' argument doesn't apply in real life: in the heat of the moment people use what comes to hand - and a second later they regret it for the rest of their lives.

Obviously there are some real hard cases who will find another weapon, but I suspect they're a minority.

Usually I stand agaist weapon, but c'mon... this is retarded. If I want to stab someone, i'll bring my own knife.

Haha. That's ridiculous. You could still slash somebody up with that thing. The legs, arms, and throat all have blood vessels that will bleed you dry in minutes if cut.

This already has 2 or 3 pages on it here

My thought is that it will only be much use in places like hostels, youth offenders places and the sort of place where you have some control over the kitchen and the people who use it.

In the real world it won't do jack, unless they make it a legal requirement and I can't see that happening... Even that will only make a miniscule difference.

Just when you think the UK can't get any more insane they go and outdo themselves.

Doubtless we will soon be seeing even more plane loads of them begging for Green Cards as they try to escape their socialist paradise.

Stab proof knives
- that country has fallen out of the silly tree and is hitting every branch on the way down.

Soon people won't be aloud to leave their homes, after all, lots of folks trip and scrape their knees daily...

I.Robot anyone?

A nation of kindergardeners being passed the safety scissors by teacher. What is it about 4 year olds that makes them so stab crazy anyway?

If you push hard enough anything can stab and it isn't like in the kichen there aren't 30 other knives in arms reach.

Are you saying that is a stabproof knife? Cos that could be very nasty, it doesn't look stabproof to me, but I can't see the tip in that picture - It could have a big rubber duck on it - then I take it back!

What next? A poke-proof pointy stick, a whack-proof baseball bat?
How about jelly screwdrivers or sponge kebab skewers?


They can have my pointy stick when they pry it from my cold dead hand.


Ok, so it may be difficult to get the necessary stab effect due to this design but the blade can still slice enough to take someones head off. All this media spun hysteria is getting tiresome.

I was moving into a new flat a few months back and so went to the local appliance shop for some basic kitchen appliances.

I bought a a dinner set that included some rather cheap and harmless dinner knives.

Now im 20 years old and wouldnt say i look any younger at all, (afterall i get served for alcohol no problem), but couldnt believe it when the dowdy looking checkout woman asked me for ID.

ID to buy some crappy knives and forks that could barely cut through butter!

I once got ID'd when trying to buy tweezers! True story, the girls were getting ready for a night out - they wanted tweezers to pluck eyebrows and whatever, I popped to the shop to to get a few beers and some smokes - I could buy those things OK, after all I'm in my late 20's! But the same checkout woman (from hence forth anal checkout bag
) refused to sell me the death tweezers because I came out with out my wallet - I had no ID!!!


It's a good job I don't tweeze!

They are forgetting that there is always a opposite effect to this way of thinking.

Now instead of looking at a kitchen knife as well....a kitchen knife, now we will all look at it more as a kitchen knife that doesn't want you killing somebody.

When you look a t a normal kitchen knife, killing somebody is less likely to enter your mind than when you looka t this new knife.

Get my point? ironic right


It's like the war on drugs, it's ironic that war on drugs create a huge business for drug dealers, because all we hear about is drugs drugs drugs. Now all we hear about is knifes knifes knifes.

Expect to see more stabbing near you.

Even compasses(for drawing circles) don't have a proper spike on these days!
