When knives with exploding, organ-freezing tips are made criminal, only criminals will have knives with exploding, organ-freezing tips.

    God bless ’em, the English used to be an aggressive, marauding people. Seems the pendulum has swung completely to the other side. Well, at least their spines won’t be frozen.

    “the English used to be an aggressive, marauding people”

    Yeah, two World Wars and the collapse of an empire all within a few decades tends to have that effect on people.

    Hmm, I don’t want one but admit it — it’s AWESOME! I love the fundamental inventiveness and sheer bloody mindedness of humankind.

    I can imagine a better version where it uses blank 22 cartridges like they use in starter pistols. The expanding gas wouldn’t freeze anything but I think the results would be just as deadly. Then it could be used multiple times depending on how many cartridges it holds. Maybe a small revolver type mechanism in the handle would work.

    Hm… with a little work that thing could become the bayonet for the Barrett .50.

    It would be able to take out TWO jumbo jets* at the same time!

    *Note, this is the citizen-disarmament lobby’s favorite argument for taking away that caliber, despite the fact that it has never happened, and is nearly impossible.

    ROFL, I’ve never heard of it tili now. And thanks to all the media hype everyone will know about it and best of all? Our stupid lazy criminals will get the chance to hear about it and order one on Ebay tomorrow.

    Khalid Mahmood, said: “Weapons like this are absolutely disgraceful and there is no reason at all why people should be walking around the streets with them.”

    MP Mahmood might have a point, had not his colleagues already applied exactly the same standard to all knives. As far as the Metropolitan Police are concerned, a 2 inch Swiss Army pen knife might as well have an exploding tip.

    There doesn’t seem to be any information out there except marketing drivel. Meh.

    Where to buy one. Me, I’d rather spend the money on a quality conventional knife. Still it is cool. Glad we’re not subjects (yet) on this side of the pond and can still buy one.

    The next thing we need to figure out is how to modify it to accept whip-its so after we give someone a good shanking we can have a nice drag of the old laughing gas…

    But would it take up the slot I’m already using for my M203 38mm with poison gas grenades??!?!

    I was reading the website and noticed this part:

    Why in the hell would a S.W.A.T. member need one of these? I can’t think of a single situation where this would be useful.

    All that aside, I want one..
