Here’s the air-powered WASP Injection Knife tested on ballistic gel. Watch the video to see what happens.
When you see a video headline about stabbing a knife into ballistic gel, you would probably be unenthused because you already know what will happen. The knife will just slice through the ballistic gel, so what’s the big deal?
The WASP Injection Knife not only slices through the gel, but explodes it.
The WASP Injection Knife was originally marketed as a self-defense tool for divers, hunters, and outdoorsmen. You could imagine how once the word got out that this knife can explode an attacker’s organs by releasing 800psi instantly with the single press of a button, most were interested in getting their hands on it and testing it out for themselves.
The main purpose of the WASP Injection Knife is to serve as protection against aggressive sharks during a dive. The initial gas release freezes both the wound and the organs to stop any bleeding that would normally attract other underwater predators. In addition to the enormous amount of shock and freezing effects, the shark would then float to the top of the water due to the excessive amount of air injected in a short period of time. The air would continue to expand and damage the internal organs, causing the shark to float away and giving you plenty of time to escape.
The WASP knife is used by unscrewing the removable handle, inserting the bulb of compressed gases, screwing the handle back on, and then pressing a button that allows the gases to exit through the tip of the blade and into the predator. Though the WASP is most effective on underwater predators, its shock can stop the attack of even the largest land predators. Want an extra challenge?
