Well, that's the Daily Mail, it's to be expected. But I can tell you, I wouldn't want one used on me.

You've missed one side of my point.

Let's say you are hunting bears with a rifle - most countries which will allow that will also permit you to carry something more effective at short range - a shotgun or pistol - as well.
Even in the UK, were you to be licensed to carry a rifle capable of hunting something that dangerous, you'd probably be also be licensed for shotgun ownership.

Besides, of that list you linked, I see only a small number of actual hunters. No doubt, non-hunters in bear infested areas would benefit from them (Although, even with a "super" knife, I wouldn't fancy my chances in a fight against a bear), but I don't think many hunters themselves would be making use of them.

Of course, some people seem to just forget the knife... like a 73 year old Kenyan who when attacked by a leopard... killed it by dropping his machete, shoving his hand into it's mouth, and tearing it's tongue out. I'm not making this up.

Well, now that we know how the idea works, it doesn't make much know-how to hook up a CO2 tyre inflator to a sharpened tube et voila.

It does kind of remove the idea of a knife as a silent weapon though, *pop*
then you can tell the judge that 'I was standing next to him and all of the sudden.. he popped.... I think he had flatuence" :D

Seems to me that Jack's suggestion makes more sense than the knife. Basically an ice pick with a CO2 cartridge.

It takes a heck of a lot of force to shove a knife this size into an animal. Hit a bone (or cartilage) and the knife will just skip off the body leaving only a minor surface wound. Something like a shark has very tough skin, underwater you would be very hard pressed to get a knife this big into the beastie before he turned you into chum. The blast of cold CO2 to the skin would do very little to a critter looking to eat you. Since the blade is really pretty irrelevant it might as well be replaced by something that would be a lot easier to get deeply into the animals body.

What would be even better ( :twisted: ) would be to have a bullet that would do this.

Like filling the nose of a hollowpoint with mercury fulminate ;) but we can't talk about explosive projectiles here, so I digress.

well there are very few guns that can be fired under water, and not of easy access to a diver, the original people they were marketing to.

Fair point, I'd rather have one of these in my sheath while diving than an ordinary knife.

Well, I have been considering trying firing full 12g cartridges from some of my launchers... but I suspect something I'd need a very solid target to manage it.
I doubt that at typical spudgun velocities that they could be broken apart on something of similar ballistic resistance to living tissue (although I don't doubt Larda's hybrid would be up to the task).

We'll see how that plans out when I get round to it.

Also, it is discharged by the push of a button, once the knife is already in them, so if your first stab failed/missed (and you hadn't already been eaten) then you could stab again w/out reloading. It would be much more complicated to get the bullet to discharge once it was well in the body, as opposed to on contact, where it would just slow it down and freeze their skin.

Unless you had a needle attached to the front of the cartridge that would pierce the skin then pierces open the cartridge when it comes into contact with something hard like bone, but that would mean you have to hit a bone when you shoot.
