Coming to the US?: "First 'anti-stab' knife to go on sale in Britain"

First there was a push for all sorts of safety regulation on guns. It was only a matter of time until knives were covered also. The Times of London has this story:

The first “anti-stab” knife is to go on sale in Britain, designed to work as normal in the kitchen but to be ineffective as a weapon.

The knife has a rounded edge instead of a point and will snag on clothing and skin to make it more difficult to stab someone.

It was invented by industrial designer John Cornock, who was inspired by a documentary in which doctors advocated banning traditional knives. . . . .


Thanks very much to Gus Cotey for this link.

Uh... can you slash with it? I would imagine you could, or it would be pretty useless "in the kitchen."

The lengths that hoplophobes will go to in order to validate their phobias would be funny if they weren't so ridiculous.

And of course, criminals would never think of grinding a point on these moronic inventions.

How can these people imagine this is really a deterrent to crime? They are so far removed from reality that it is mind boggling.
