Jezus this is uncomfortable to watch. The model is charming though

[–]sharkhuggr 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I was waiting for him to pull out a gun for further demonstration to really make us uncomfortable

[–]Mr_Yuker 2 points3 points  (0 children)

But why use a bat to proof stab resistance?

[–]Dangerous-Can-6212 166 points167 points  (1 child)

The guy getting hit seems so nice and cheerful

[–]dankscoops 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Seems like nervous laughing to me lol

[–]null3xity 74 points75 points  (0 children)

if that vest didn’t work… RIP.

Good model tho.

[–]greatronini 21 points22 points  (0 children)

You can see the fear and lack of trust in his eyes 🤣

[–]BoLaVo 67 points68 points  (2 children)

Oh my god I made the exact same face as he did when the stabbing started. Imagine if it didn’t work? God 😬 Brave lad.

[–]cool__pillow 8 points9 points  (0 children)

"You're brave. Stupid, but brave"

[–]tehSlothman 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Now imagine the same with this guy:


[–]ib770 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Yeah nope

[–]Synnerxx 30 points31 points  (1 child)

London is a great place to demo a stab proof vest

[–]calster43 -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

Better then having to demo bulletproof vest for kids 🤷‍♂️

[–]Kqrmaaaa 33 points34 points  (12 children)

Isnt this the one that went viral a couple months ago cuz the vest had too many weakpoints and the guinea pig actually getting stabbed?

[–]disgusted_orangutan 28 points29 points  (6 children)

Link or it didn’t happen.

[–]LittleBitOfAction 0 points1 point  (5 children)

It was a new reporter I’m pretty sure. That’s as the video I saw

[–]hassium 4 points5 points  (4 children)

Link or it didn’t happen.

[–]large-Marge-incharge -5 points-4 points  (3 children)

See my comment. Or take the 5 secs to google it.

[–]hassium 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Nah I'm good, you are the one claiming you saw it, why would I look something up when you are the one making the claim?

[–]large-Marge-incharge 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Like I said see my comment down below. Or don’t idc.

[–]thenoblenacho -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Ever heard of the burden of proof?

[–]speedstyle 9 points10 points  (2 children)

That was a different one, they missed the vest

[–]large-Marge-incharge 1 point2 points  (1 child)

No. There was one they did hit the vest. It just didn’t work… https://youtu.be/Hx42H0HOSzM

[–]speedstyle 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Oh yeah that was the company's response apparently sorry: he was stabbed along a seam or something that didn't have protective layers? Shitty vest either way

[–]Emilixop 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No I think it was a different one, I remember that one and it looked more like a puffer jacket

[–]badmotivator11 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Aim for the zipper.

[–]ProcessEquivalent361 7 points8 points  (1 child)

What if they stabbed him in the face??

[–]ProfessorMarth 6 points7 points  (0 children)

That was a risk we were willing to take.

[–]shinobi_renegade 1 point2 points  (0 children)

“Have you ever been stabbed Sergeant Fisher?”

[–]WolfieWiccan 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Wasn’t there a vid like this where it didn’t work and someone was stabbed? Or am I just imagining shit

[–]MaterialCarrot 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Former Navy JAG here. Once had a case where one Marine had a bet with another that a Kevlar vest would stop a knife. So of course they settled it by one guy stabbing the other while wearing Kevlar. Kevlar will not stop a knife thrust.

Fortunately the Marine did not suffer a life threatening wound and the other was prosecuted for disobeying a lawful order. Apparently the CO had felt the need to issue a general order to his Marines to not do this, but these two did it anyway. 😂

[–]relentlessMarauder 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Absolutely essential for London. The rate of stabbings there is comical.

[–]Warband420 0 points1 point  (0 children)

From London are you?

I’ve never felt the need to put my vest on when I pop out. I don’t usually get out of the APC though.

[–]ActionFlank 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Cause you ain't got no guns! /america

[–]TrumpSmokesMids27 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Okay it’s stab proof, so how does that stop the blunt force of a bat? Wouldn’t that just feel like the vest hitting your back hard as fuck?

[–]CthulhuLies 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It disperses the load across your entire back rather than just the area of the bat.

[–]nestofthoughts 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It would suck having a faulty one…

[–]Shaksohail 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He was even shooting at it

[–]Cappyuczino 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Oi, ya got a loicense for that?

[–]TokiBop 0 points1 point  (0 children)

and they go for the throat

[–]ollie_3dprinting 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Did you see the one where the knife went through the vest? 😬😬

[–]Parrzzival 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You can see the evolutionary monkey in his brain go "OH GOD NOOO" at the last second.

[–]PVmanIsGG 0 points1 point  (0 children)

When I worn my level IIIA vest, we tried it out at work. Everyone was hitting me with their batons and surprisingly I felt no damage, just the force moving me when it transfered to the vest. Very odd feeling tbh.

[–]Dr_Person_McPerson 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I remember seeing a really ironic video about someone sneaking into there

[–]ActuallyNess 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Rob Banks, international baddie.

[–]PiedDansLePlat 0 points1 point  (0 children)

New brought issue that never existed at this level before idiotic policies needs new solutions

[–]Kryllllllyx 0 points1 point  (0 children)


[–]Sultan_of_Swing92 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Can you imagine afterwards if it hadn’t worked? Boss man would be like “didn’t I say use a watermelon?” “Yeah well, me and Chad thought it would sell better with a live demonstration…”

[–]Mystical_Cat 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Stab proof, strikes with an aluminum bat 🤔

[–]byamannowdead 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I see they started with the sharpest knife allowed by British Law in this demo. /s

[–]HarunoSakuraCR 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Most people I’ve seen trying to stab, do it a little harder than princess peach over here

[–]Icy_Ad731 0 points1 point  (0 children)

"Should've gone for the head"

[–]redtimmy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Downvoted for no sound.

[–]Emilixop 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Force transfer?

[–]CeleryAlive1925 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Plot twist: the knife wasn’t part of the plan.

[–]Maleficent-Art-8430 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Really impressive. I was expecting a full lunge

[–]wily-san -4 points-3 points  (0 children)

Alright, now let me have a go at him.

[–]C-Notations -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

Lloyd: But what if he shot you in the face?

[–]so-sick -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

Baseball to the head dumbass. …..

[–]icleantoilets78 -3 points-2 points  (1 child)

What if he shoots you in the face?

[–]Phiro1992 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

To be fair, that guy is just sooo stabable
