Since the dawn of time, civilization has dreamt-up more and more creative ways of killing each other. We started by throwing stones at each other, and moved onto bigger and better things, such as swords, javelins, and the greatest death dealer of all, the nuclear bomb. One of these implements of death has remained relatively unchanged over the centuries, though, and that’s the knife. It has come in different shapes and sizes over the years, but its role has remained the same – slicing an
d stabbing. Recently though, a company decided that stabbing a person just wasn’t enough. They decided that the victim was never dead enough from said stabbing, and thus the WASP Injector Knife was born.
Created by WASP Injection Systens, the WASP Injector Knife (or WASPIK) features all the qualities of a regular knife (such as a handle and stabby part), but with the added benefits of a compressed gas cartridge stored securely in the hilt. You’re probably asking yourself “why would a person want to store gas in their knife, isn’t that silly?”. Well, it is, but for different reasons than you may think. You see, the special thing about this knife is that the moment you stab something with it, the contents of the gas cartridge are expelled through a tiny opening, creating a basket-ball sized cavity to form in whatever thing you’ve just stabbed. The company’s rationale behind this odd “improvement” is that, if used underwater, the rapid expansion of gas causes the target to float to the surface faster than blood can pour out of them into the surrounding water. I’m sure that could be useful in certain scenarios, but really… a knife… that shoots gas? Really? Really?
Despite how creative this knife is, I feel it’s rather overkill. I appreciate fine knives as much as the next guy, but not ones that shoot out ice-cold blasts of gas at 800psi. What happens if I’m trying to open a parcel and accidentally blast gas into the packaging? Kapow! That’s what.
Here’s a video of the WASP Injector Knife blowing up a watermelon!
