You can tell how awesome a cannon is by the pressure used.

Oh dear.

And in the interest of forum etiquette, perhaps the less than sober spamming should cease here ;)

Well, if you're stabbing someone, that's usually the general idea :roll: :wink:

On their site doesn't it say that it is the next advanced weapon for soldiers? To kill enemies? People?

I can't really see it being effective for soldiers. The good, old fashioned Ka-bar seems to do quite well (or the other knifes for non-Americans). I mean, thrusting a 8 inch blade through the breast bone of someone or pulling the edge across the jugular seems to be very effective in "stopping a threat." Injecting CO2 is going to do nothing more than add insult to injury (or make a really big mess). Then you have to reload the cartridge?

I can, however, see this being very effective in hunting and diving for defensive purposes. Bear attack? Shark attack? Whatever.

It has multiple burst of co2 like a co2 inflator.

Next version will run on unregged hpa. 8)

Version after that will be a burst disk hybrid.

A prize for Captain Obvious!

Hmm, interesting, but I do have my doubts - I wouldn't be that surprised if it was banned as inhumane pretty quickly.

Besides, I although can see it as very useful for say, a diver - surely hunters (and soldiers, while I'm at it) would have more effective, and longer range, things to resort to?
If you're hunting something that requires something more complex than a normal knife to stop it, firstly, I wouldn't want to have to wait for it to get that close, and secondly, presumably you'd have a rifle or some other firearm anyway? I mean, what exactly were you hunting with in the first place?

The link should clear up any hunters. Bears and other wildlife attack at close range, where a rifle is usually no good.

I saw that on a tv show. It said that they weren't mass producing it because they thought that some school kid or a criminal would find a way to get their ands on one.

The daily mail's already thrown up a fuss :D

I think the point here is to maximise lethality if all you're carrying is a knife - it's being marketed as something you'd use if you were attacked at close range, not really as an offensive tool.

Well, now that we know how the idea works, it doesn't make much know-how to hook up a CO<sub>2</sub> tyre inflator to a sharpened tube et voila.

It does kind of remove the idea of a knife as a silent weapon though, *pop*
