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.
