Anti-stab knives

 
 
 
 
 

The knife has a blunt "upper protrusion" with a rounded edge which acts as a guard for the sharp point underneath. It has an undercut that snags on clothes, skin or tissue.

A sharp point underneath is used in the usual way as a standard knife point but with limited penetration. An ergonomic handle also reduces the aggressiveness of the product.

"The common kitchen knife has remained unchanged for centuries so now we’re hoping to introduce a safer, more intelligent design for the modern home," says Mr Cornock.

He says a knife can never be totally safe, but the idea is it can’t inflict a fatal wound.
