(Assault Knife = Long Pointed Kitchen Knife)
December 30, 2012 by POPEYE
(BBC) A&E doctors are calling for a ban on long pointed kitchen knives to reduce deaths from stabbing.
A team from West Middlesex University Hospital said violent crime is
on the increase – and kitchen knives are used in as many as half of all
They argued many assaults are committed impulsively, prompted by
alcohol and drugs, and a kitchen knife often makes an all too available
The research is published in the British Medical Journal.
The researchers said there was no reason for long pointed knives to be publicly available at all.
They consulted 10 top chefs from around the UK, and found such knives have little practical value in the kitchen.
None of the chefs felt such knives were essential, since the point of
a short blade was just as useful when a sharp end was needed.
The researchers said a short pointed knife may cause a substantial
superficial wound if used in an assault – but is unlikely to penetrate
to inner organs.
In contrast, a pointed long blade pierces the body like “cutting into a ripe melon”.
The use of knives is particularly worrying amongst adolescents, say
the researchers, reporting that 24% of 16-year-olds have been shown to
carry weapons, primarily knives.
The study found links between easy access to domestic knives and violent assault are long established.
French laws in the 17th century decreed that the tips of table and street knives be ground smooth.
A century later, forks and blunt-ended table knives were introduced
in the UK in an effort to reduce injuries during arguments in public
The researchers say legislation to ban the sale of long pointed knives would be a key step in the fight against violent crime.
“The Home Office is looking for ways to reduce knife crime."
