Kitchen knife prevents passion crimes

Invention of antistab knife promises same culinary functionality with higher level of safety

Maybe I'm alone in this, but I have a suspicion that the inventor of this Anti-Stab Knife has seen one too many crime shows.

Designed to prevent the kind of injury that makes it onto the front page of the local newspaper, the knife sports a blunted edge that blocks the knife from being plunged into...um...inappropriate media. Don't worry about your fruits and veggies suffering, though: there is still a perfectly good cutting edge to cut those.

What I'm struggling to figure out is the target audience for a kitchen gadget of this nature...is this intended as a joke for married couples? Would you give this as a birthday gift to a friend with a notoriously short temper? Or would you keep this in your house instead of normal knives as a deterrent to would-be attackers?

Regardless of the intended end user, the knife is now available in the UK for around $70. For that price, I'd rather invest in anger management therapy.
