They will also have to ban, stones, water and any device that can make the stone go round and round.

I hate those safety knives with the serrated ridges set way back on a rounded edge; college had them in their cafeteria. Freaking worthless forks work better than those things. So what if they sell a knife that doesn't have a point big deal; atleast it'll work better than the knife I just mentioned.

Is this real? I mean, I know this is LOLENGLAND...but, really?

Anyway, they should just give you a plastic knife instead. At least those really can't be used to harm anyone...if you try to stab some one with those, or hell, cut a piece of boiled chicken, it'll just bust right in half in your hand!

Its particularly silly since while you'd have a hard time building a gun much better then a musket loader about any idiot could fabricate a decent killing knife from a piece of crudely cut steel or other material...or fuck, just stab them with a pair of scissors or a screwdriver. The end result is what exactly?

We get Chia pets and they get anti-stab knife... I think they are ahead.

And I guess the dude has never seen a Chinese clever. Or any HK gangster movie where they are fighting with "Watermelon Knife"

He said: ?It can never be a totally safe knife, but the idea is you can?t inflict a fatal wound. Nobody could just grab one out of the kitchen drawer and kill someone.?

I'll bet him a million pounds I could inflict a fatal wound on him with that knife. Let's see him take that bet; if he's so sure that you can't inflict a fatal wound, what's he got to lose? He'll be a millionaire provided a knife that can cut through celery can't make it through his jugular.

Wonder if those doctors use anti-stab scalpels?

Soon they will ban reproduction. Because if we don't have any children, then evenetually when everyone dies out, there won't be anyone to kill or be killed.

Not so much a joke when you realize that what happens there usually happens here sooner or later.

Looking at the article, it has a pretty sharp point on the forward edge of the blade. Stab in the right direction, and you can easily stab somebody fatally.

And yet the US wants to be just like them. I weep for my country.

yeap. its slowly headed in that direction.

And the funniest thing? The people leading us there call themselves "progressive" and "liberal."

Authoritarianism is NOT liberal nor is it progressive.

I don't see a problem with blunt tip kitchen knives. I don't need a point on my steak knife.

I guess I don't really see the problem here. Regular knives are still on sale, correct? No one in the government is stepping in and banning regular knives?

So a single entrepreneur saw a market for knives that won't allow you to stab people, designed them and manufactured them for sale alongside regular knives. I don't really see what the problem is here.
