Wasp Injection Knife: For when you need to drop a large animal fast

The official site says:

As divers, we all know what the effects of compressed gas are underwater. Our training teaches us that our lungs would burst from over-inflation if we held our breath and rose to the surface. This principle is key to the effectiveness of the WASP Injection System.

This weapon injects a freezing cold ball of compressed gas, approximately the size of a basketball, at 800psi nearly instantly. The effects of this injection will drop many of the world's largest land predators. The effects of the compressed gas not only cause over-inflation during ascent when used underwater, but also freezes all tissues and organs surrounding the point of injection on land or at sea. When used underwater, the injected gas carries the predator to the surface BEFORE blood is released into the water. Thus giving the diver added protection by diverting other potential predators to the surface.

Here's video of one taking down a watermelon. Permanently.

  1. can british citizens even purchase $400 firearms??

  2. I have no idea, but that's a deeply strange question to someone living in America.

  3. That Injection Knife is beautiful. A real breakthrough in hand-to-hand combat technology. I gotta get one of those!

  4. Cool knife!! I wonder how well it would work with propane canisters - like the ones they sell for those tiny torches?

  5. I purchased the Wasp knife. This thing is a well crafted piece of machinery. The guy who suggested propane in place of CO2 is right on target - here are a few ideas I've been working on to enhance the Wasp Kinfe:

    1. Install an electric ignitor and substitute propane for CO2. Jab, press the button and KABOOM! That's gotta be better than a Deagle Fifty.

    2. Load up the chamber in the blade with rattle snake venom - Jab, Stab, boom and squirt - that sucka ain't going anywhere.
