    Doctors in the UK tried to ban knives.

    Found on reddit:

    2005 Article about physicians feeling that kitchen knives should required not to be as "pointy". I guess the good guys won that fight?

    Trying to figure out what a "17 bladed" knife is? SAK? What if it has 16 or 18 blades?

    the uk has already banned the sell of knives on ebay uk. they aren't too far away from getting it done.
    I haven't lived the life I wanted, just the lives I needed too at the time.

    Don't forget the follow up "intelligent design" anti stab knives

    The comment regarding 17 bladed weapons, I have no idea what they are referring to. The UK knife law is pretty complex but never seen anything related to 17 bladed things

    Why don't they ban forks first? With 2-4 sharp tips they are much more dangerous then knives

    i am still amazed we aren't allowed nail clippers on a plane yet we get metal utensils and can have a 4 foot chain tied to our wallets, makes sense.

    I think I remember this from a while back.
    Unless I'm mistaken, they claimed to have interviewed a few Chefs, who had unanimously told them that only a paring knife needs to have a pointed tip...
