Childrens cutlery makes the Law an ass.

Click the images to enlarge.
In the UK if you want to buy cutlery suitable for a 3 year old you need to have ID that proves that you are over 21. 

Actually the Law states that you need to be over 18 years old but the shops are playing it safe and raising it to 21 in order to make sure their staff ask for ID. 

Sure it is a good idea to stop kids buying knives, but cutlery suitable for a 3 year old?

When was the last time a bank was held up by a robber wielding children's cutlery?

Is Polybore going to get busted for supplying this cutlery to a child? This is totally and utterly round the twist.

Here is a "Saw" inspired video demonstration of the bluntness of the knife when used on a Polybore finger. 


  1. My God! That's a dangerous weapon. It ought to be kept in a leather sheath and ought to be stored in a locked medicine cabinet.

  2. I think you should do a group test involving several more knives.
