File this under "Shit that would be cool if it actually worked", and "Gratuitious", possibly under "Ineffective and heavy"



British Police have recently added it to thier watch list supposedly. There is a video at the link.

Ok.... a co2 powered knife

<sigh>

Whatever cooling there is would be trivial and would in no way freeze anything.

Most tissues are elastic. Those that are not don't do well when shoving a large knife in the anyway.

Wow.
So, as long as you can stab the target and hold them long enough to inject the "basketball-sized" sphere of gas... they'll break open and yield their juicy, seedless insides?

Not only that, but terrorists have one that is made of a ceramic material that is not detectable by airport security. Once aboard an aircraft, it can be used to poke a hole in a window, which will cause rapid decompression and all the passengers will be sucked out the window and the plane will crash, killing millions of children.

This sounds like a Farid idea.

I met him at Blade many years ago and had to do business with him once. What a tool he is. He has some weird ideas on what a knife should be.

Personally I'd rather have the molten lava squirter version.

Are we talking about the guy in GD who said he wouldn't trust his life to a knife that cost less than $2,000?

This knife is designed to kill sharks underwater. If you're a diver and you get attacked supposedly releasing all of the CO2 into the shark will kill or disable it a lot faster than stabbing it alone.

This was posted in some kind of shark-related thread last year.

ETA:
Apparently they have since started marketing it as a "tactical" knife for "Special Op's":

I'm not worried. We just have to put the plane on a treadmill to prevent takeoff and save millions of people.

I heard it's called a Glock 7.
