WASP Gas Injection Knife

Sometimes while out in the wilderness you need more than just a sturdy knife for protection against unwanted wildlife solicitation. And on these occasions when a regular knife just won’t cut it, you’ll be glad to have the Wasp Gas Injection Knife by your side to debilitate any incoming trouble.

Each 11 1/4” American-made knife features a blade length of 5 1/4” and comes in several grip options including neoprene, yes these are also intended for defense against marine life as well. The blade is also made from heat- treated and tempered 440C Surgical Stainless Steel but surprisingly that’s not the most damaging aspect of the knife. Each handle holds either a 12g or 25g gas cartridge (with use of a Max Adapter) that unleashes freezing cold 800psi compressed gas from a valve in the blade at the push of a button.

That’s right, not only will the blade stand up to the toughest wildlife around, but will severely damage and freeze any organs and tissues around the initial entry site, thus completely debilitating the attacker. It’s been recommended for use in Special Ops troops, as a valuable addition to military survival kits, as well as Special Police units. However, you can pick one up for yourself today for $500. Stay safe out there. [Purchase]
