Knives

I see a well known company has designed a set of knives that could not be used to cause injury to anyone.

These knives are rounded at the end rather that pointed.

imo this is a pointless exercise (no pun intended)

Anyone wanting to get a knife for illicit purposes is simply going to select from the vast range of other knives the company makes.....and anyone with a minimum amount of knowledge could alter these rounded end knives in minutes.

Perhaps it's about free advertising for the company ?

Re: Knives

Not exactly a new idea, @gleneagles . most butter knives I know are rounded end, but you could still use them as an offensive weapon, should you be so inclined.

Re: Knives

You can still "stick" someone in the guts with one... or any other place....

As you say... probably just an advertising gimmick for the company...

Re: Knives

Every company looking for an angle to sell more stuff, pretty soon you will need a licence to buy any knife - just like you need one for a gun.   I am surprised Jezza Corbyn has not either promised a knife ban or free knives for all in manifesto - ( or knowing how indecisive Jezza is,  both at the same time 🤣 ) - he has sat on fences for so long but now cannot even decide which fence to sit on......

Re: Knives

Pointless I agree, and whilst knives seem to be the norm now for youngsters (and guess who had to bite his tongue when waiting for the obvious to emerge after that recent machete incident in Birmingham) - virtually anything can be used as a lethal weapon.

Caught in public with any knife at any age and they should just bang 'em up and throw away the key.

Re: Knives

I've just looked in my kitchen utensils drawer and it's a bad person's dream.

Pointed blades of various sizes and including a chopper.

I guess if a burglar breaks in while I'm home, it's who gets to it first.

If your target is Pozidrive then your Philips driver won't work.
