Childrens cutlery makes the Law an ass.

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 http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/CrimeJusticeAndTheLaw/CrimePrevention/DG_078569 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.
