Advanced Hunting Knife May Be A Bit Too Much
Weaponry has always been advanced by technology. Insuring the safety of divers, hunters and campers is important, but the concept behind one new invention might take personal weaponry a bit too far.
Created by WASP, the Injector Knife is claimed to be the best weapon to use when defending yourself from an enemy (especially dangerous animals). Without the use of poison, the knife is capable of paralyzing large animals with a single stab.
The way the WASP Injector Knife works is that it forces a massive amount of freezing compressed air into a stab wound. By pressing a button, the gas releases instantly through a thin tube that exits near the tip of the knife’s blade. When released, the gas then expands to the size of a basketball inside whatever the knife has been thrust into. WASP claims that the shock and tissue freezing can stop the largest land and underwater predators.
But do individuals in today’s society really need this type of personal weaponry? It works as a great weapon for soldiers and marines, but as far as hunters and campers go, it’s a bit too much. Not to sound like an animal extremist, but if a person was to come into contact with a mammal like a bear, do they really need to attack the animal with such a dangerous weapon? If the animal did appear to be a threat, then it’s understandable. But who’s going to have the courage to attack the animal and then remember to push the button to release the gas?
The WASP Injector Knife is a great invention that can be used in the military for certain situations, but should only be marketed to them.
