We Just Read: Cutlery company creates knives with square tips ‘in response to rising knife crime’

In October 2019, it was reported that knife crime had reached a record high in England and Wales, with more than 44,000 offences involving a knife or a sharp instrument recorded by police in the 12 months leading up to June.

In a bid to tackle knife crime, British cutlery and kitchenware firm Viners, which was founded in Sheffield in 1901, has designed a new range of knives with square ends.

Knives in collection ‘have been repeatedly tested to ensure the tip does not pierce skin intentionally or otherwise’

Single knives in the range cost either £3.99 or £5.99, while a four-piece set costs £15.99.

  1. 1 step closer to banning knives…. What an absolute joke that is. What about banning cigerettes and alcohol that kill how many people a year?? But no let’s not even talk about that… too much money being made that’s why. We are losing our rights more and more as time goes on and no one is even aware of what has been happening and what will continue to happen. Wake up people
