United Kingdom – New Knife with Exploding Tip
Senior Metropolitan 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.
The 'wasp knife', which can deliver a ball of compressed gas capable of killing its victim at the press of a button, may be heading for Britain.
A needle in the tip of the blade shoots out the frozen ball of gas which instantly balloons to the size of a basketball, freezing organs.
The manufacturer describes it as perfect for downed pilots, soldiers and security guards and boasts that it will 'drop many of the world's largest land predators'.
The Metropolitan Police have told colleagues to be on the lookout for the blade, which is designed to kill sharks and bears as they are concerned that the $380 USD weapon could fall into the wrong hands. (CBSA / Met Police / WASP Injection Systems, Inc. - WASP Injection Knife

About The WASP:
As divers, we all know what the effects of compressed gas are underwater. Our training teaches us that our lungs would burst from over-inflation if we held our breath and rose to the surface. This principle is key to the effectiveness of the WASP Injection System.
This weapon injects a frozen ball of compressed gas approximately the size of a basketball at 800psi nearly instantly. The effects of this injection will drop many of the world's largest land predators. The effects of the compressed gas not only cause over-inflation during ascent when used underwater, but also freezes all tissues and organs surrounding the point of injection on land or at sea. When used underwater, the injected gas carries the predator to the surface BEFORE blood is released into the water. Thus giving the diver added protection by diverting other potential predators to the surface.
