    UK will finally be safe!!

    Kind of an old article, but a search didn't find any mention of it here:

    First 'Stab-Proof' Knife to Go on Sale in the U.K.
    and
    First 'anti-stab' knife to go on sale in Britain

    Is especially love this line:

    ...the idea is you canít inflict a fatal wound. Nobody could just grab one out of the kitchen drawer and kill someone.

    If you can't stab, slash. Works well on a steak.

    You don't stab your steak to pieces?

    I can guarantee you with enough force that thing will go in to a body.

    No wonder when I went there on business once the office people looked at me funny when I whipped out a knife to open a box. I got very similar looks when in France also.

    From my extensive combat experience playing Counter Strike, I can assure you it is often faster to slash than to stab. Plus everyone knows you run faster with a knife.

    I guess you can't kill someone by putting it in their eye? Silly Brits...

    I'm gonna bet that if you told the dipstick that said you couldn't inflict a fatal wound with it to let you stab him if he was so sure of his statement,I'm gonna bet he will say no I might get killed

    The Brits are going to legislate themselves out of existence.

    Pretty soon the country will be ripe for the picking, and any old camel jockey, street scum, or other more primeval creature will take over and have their way with Britain. I doubt God will save the Queen this time.

    First 'Stab-Proof' Knife to Go on Sale in the U.K.
    The obvious implication being that the availability of "stab-proof" knives will ultimately make sharp, pointy, effective (aka, "dangerous") knives unavailable. I feel safer already.
