Since World War II, the military has seen its soldiers equipment go through radical changes and technological advances. Modifications have been made to nearly every aspect waspknife0111.gifof military equipment and gear. Advances in weaponry and even things as simple as a pair of boots make our fighting men the best equipped soldiers in the world.

Technological innovation in defense products has continued and the patent-protected design of a new breed of knife has been introduced in the form of The WASP Injection Knife. The WASP Injection Knife features a new age take on man’s oldest tool, one that combines technology with practicality. It is a multi-shot gas injection weapon that is easy-to-use, easy-to-reload and delivers up to a 24g shot of compressed gas at 800 psi. on land or underwater. It is silent when used and highly effective in close quarters urban combat.

waspknife0107.gifThe WASP is ideally suited for:

* Special Ops Troops (Land or Sea)
* Downed Pilots Stranded In Open Water
or Remote Forests
* Military Survival Kits
* S.W.A.T. and Special Police
* Security Guards

MSRP $379.95

    Security Guards? Are you freaking serious? Military maybe. But a civilian security guard? Encouraging some to use a highly lethal weapon that not only is guaranteed to make one hell of a mess, but to cause mind shattering amounts of pain is reckless. And immoral. Yea, lets give some 9-5 guy a incentive to guarantee a kill. REAL classy there.

  • Blacksheep

    This is an outstanding weapon, but ONLY for the military. If a member of the public is caught with one it should be a life sentance, simple as that. Security guard – are you for real ! Remember that when a 14 year old kid is grabbed for shoplifting, the “security guard” will be the one dealing with them..

  • http://Tactical-Life.com LOGS

    Deadly Force, if justified, can be delivered by anyone. Remember we all have the right to defened ourselves. Police are after the fact! We dial 911 and the police respond. Very few times are they there when crime happens. There may be areas where firearms are not allowed. This would be a great weapon for those times. As the advertisement points out you could be facing man or beast. I think it is a great product.

  • T. R.

    I wonder about the legality of this weapon for military use? Would not the ability to inject gas(a chemical)into a person possibly qualify this as a chemical weapon? If so it might be banned for military use under the Chemical Weapons Convention(CWC).

  • Wakka

    “It is silent when used” only when employed as a regular knife. In the videos it makes a great deal of noise when the mechanism is used.

  • Knoxville

    This knife should be treated like a deadly firearm.

  • Dödel

    If used, military only! As a tool to cut freaking wood or so. You can´t be serious :
    “The WASP is IDEALLY suited for:
    * Special Ops Troops (Land or Sea)” lol

    That´s def not a weapon for a sec- guard or policemen (they are not able to use their tasers in a right way, DON´T give them such a tool!).

    “There may be areas where firearms are not allowed. This would be a great weapon for those times.” Yeah, what areas? Something like a plane, where the sheriff may cause a painful, hellofamess-dead to a drunken passenger?
    think before writing.

    but the invention of a gas knife is quite cool, would like to play a while with such a thing.

    I just mine from UPS. It’s a big knife with a very thick blade so it has the strength desipite tube running through it. It feels good in the hand but not balanced like a fighter or something. I popped in a CO2 powerlet (after removing the spent test one they ship in it) and you get about one really good blast then a few minor ones. I guess it would piss a shark off huh?

    A great knife overall, well built and an awesome hangle (neoprene type.) I didn’t see a sheath anywhere when I opened it. It must be in there somewhere I can’t imagine someone making a knife like this and not making a sheath for it. Maybe they forgot mine…

  • meathead

    security, as in private military contractors, don’t deal with walmart shop-lifters…

  • DANNY

    I AM A DEPUTY AND I COULD NOT FIND ONE THING I WOULD EVER NEED A KNIFE LIKE THE WASP TO USE ON.
    IF I COULD NOT STOP A SUBJECT FROM KILLING ME WITH MY HANDS I HAVE A SIDE ARM THAT I AM VERY QULIFIED TO USE. AND WHEN THE S*#T HITS THE FAN AND I MUST USE A KNIFE I CARY A FIXED BLADE DAGGER ATTACHED TO MY BODY ARMOR. I HOPE NEVER TO HAVE TO USE MY GUN OR KNIFE BUT I COULD CERTAINLY SEE SOME DIRT BAG ATTEMPTING TO USE A WEAPON LIKE THIS ON A COP OR AN INNOCENT PERSON.

  • special agent

    My partner has one of these,I will be buying one of these for use in the field.

    They do NOT come with a sheath and are not very sharp at all,but the blast killed a attacking dog in one stick and blast.Its a bit weird to stab and fire but with a bit of pratice it works well.

  • Dan

    You are all pyscho’s and i think you all should be hung!

  • noel

    this knife is crazy…would be better if it was a little more skinny and easier to enter the body. nice idea though:)

  • caligati

    What are you people buying a knife for, to whittle wood? I doubt it, despite all the humanitarian rhetoric. If I am required to draw a knife to defend myself, my aim would not be to mercifully wound them, but to kill them as quickly as possible, not wave it in their face and hope they go away.

    Questions remaining: 1) Does it require a permit to carry? 2) Is it, as one writer suggested, permitted by CWC regulations?

    Finally, dead is dead. If you kill someone, no matter how you do it, it will leave a hole in your soul for the rest of your life. I know. I was stabbed, and I had to defend my self, to live. And I’ve had a hole in my soul for 45 years.

  • D-Mac 1.0

    Looks like a great concept for a dive knife. Has it been shark tested? The LEO “you might hurt us with that” crowd will have it banned by congress before christmas.

  • Benn

    The company that makes the WASP does more selling on their website about its use for a diver against predators. Personally I want one for when I am diving, I hate sharks that think I am food.

  • Brian

    To Danny: Cops are cowards and the people that want to be cops – especially former armed forces personnel – should be banned from becoming cops. Although I would not like to see anyone injured, the phrase “just desserts” would come to mind if this weapon was used on some cop that was trying to brutalize an innocent person, like we have all seen too many times on the news.

  • ERT_Operator

    Violence is rarely the answer. But sometimes on rare occasions it is the ONLY answer. There are many weapons and skills that should be deployed before this knife ever leaves the sheath. First of all is survival instinct. Dont put yourself into a dangerous situation, unless you absolutely have to! Second, this is a CQC weapon, (that means close quarters combat) to the uninitiated. Whish means if you can use this on someone, then it can also be taken away and used on you. (something to think about.) Self defense is better performed at a distance. (Outside arms reach.) Perferably with a Handgun, Taser, Pepper Spray, Etc.) At the very most this knife should be considered a list-ditch, back-up weapon to be used when all other means have failed.

  • john sinclair

    1) security gaurd?? great for exploding the insides of some 14 year old stealing from Walmart corperation….. yeah right.

    2) this knife looks VERY unuseful as a daily sheath knife in the woods. The fattest part of the blade is in the middle; which makes for a terrible cutting tool

    3) shark knife – maybe, but the have had better shark injectors for DECADES with better reach

    4) silent killer – absolutely not. people are rarely silent when their insides are being exploded

    5) all in all – grossly overpriced, a moronic attempt to compete with the handgun, and a very unethical device, gauranteed to be misused by creeps

    save your money, and support concealed carry rights for people that are not criminals, you’ll need your glock when a creepo tries to stab you with even just a 4 dollar knife.

  • Awake

    Nice knife, and good idea for diving but not for out of the water. Should have much harder penalties for having any type of knife when not being used for a trade. So many silly kids carrying knifes and guns and not being able to use their fists.

  • Henry

    This is not a new idea. When I started scuba diving(late 1960′s early 1970′s), there was a weapon called the “Shark Dart”. There were two models. One was hand held with a short shaft and one had a long spear like shaft. Both had a round shaft with a sharp point on the end(with air holes). The idea was to drive it through the tough shark hide and it would fire on impact. I never had to use it. For a limited application it could be useful but you need a sheath for safe carry. Consider this an extremely dangerous weapon.

  • Skans

    I love this knife! I’ve gotta have one of them. I’ve found all kinds of C02 cannisters on the net – some up to 60g – used to inflate life rafts, etc.. The biggest one that the knife takes is 24g – built into the handles. I suspect that all you really need is the adaptor, a 24g cannister and some insulating material over the cannister so as to not freeze your hand.

    I’d like to see what a 60g cannister attached to this knife would do to that watermellon!

  • callie

    blacksheep, life sentence huh. that sounds like an appropriate sentence…in 1939 germany. what a ding dong!

  • Wendel

    A lot of civilians have commented very arrogantly on this.

    First off, when the website said for security. They meant private military contractors, not a rent-a-pig. Although, I know several operators and I don’t think one would lower themselves to having to use a knife like that. They are proficient enough with their hands, firearms, and normal knives. They don’t need to go james bond technology to kill people.

    For those that said self defense should be done from a distance, is a moron. Most self defense cases are within 8 paces, usually closer. Your best chances are a legally carried handgun, or a knife. Forget mace, even the most potent stuff barely works, I’ve had my fair share tested on me and could fight through it. But, even if you used that on someone, it’s designed to kill, and you can never try to kill someone in self defense, you can try to “stop” them. If stopping them kills them, so be it, but a court will probably rule that you used too much force, defending yourself with a knife like the wasp.

    I could see the knife for divers, but like stated, there are bang sticks that do the job, and have been proven to do so, but the knife is still an alternative. Another good possibility for it, is large animals, especially in places like the appalachian trail, where the carry of firearms is prohibited in most areas, and very frowned upon in the rest. Though, you’re one crazy-m****fcker if you’re gonna try to stab a pissed off bear, with a 5 1/4″ blade, and hope to god the gas kills it. Either way, you’ll still probably get mauled. Stick with the experts, play dead, makes lot of noise and try to intimidate it, or slowly and calmy back away… all depending on what type of bear you’re looking at.

    All-in-all, well thought up knife, “the perfect solution to a non-existent problem”. Very little practical use.

  • Jack Crow

    Love this knife, can’t wait to get one. It will make a good back up weapon to my pistol.

    As for those who would ban it, get a life people. Laws only affect the law abiding, criminals commit murder, rape, etc despite long prison terms.

    When are you going to learn to arm the good guys so we are able to protect ourselves from the bad? It’s not rocket science.

  • Ricardovitz

    Here are some additional thoughts on the Wasp Injection System:

    Modifications I’d like to see:
    1. Instead of CO2, how about using a small propane canister. Stab, inject gas, throw a match and watch that watermellon REALLY explode.

    2. Turn that “Wasp” into a “Snake Bite”. Fill the tube with snake venom and melt a little wax over it to keep the venom in the tube until you need a little SNAKE BITE.

    3. Other toxins could probably be used too.

    Well, y’all let me know what you think, ok?

  • nick

    whats the largest pocket knife you are legally allowed to carry?

  • Ricardovitz

    “What’s the largest pocket knife you can legally cary?”

    1. Anyone that you dern’t git caught with.
    2. In Jolly Old England, the Pommies cain’t legally cary a fingernail file.
    3. In the USofA, the largest pocket knife you can carry is a bayonett attached to your Glock 17 pistol
    4. In Australia the largest pocket knife you can carry is yer pecker. And ifn’ you have an Aussie shellia friend, she’ll carve it off and cary it fer ya.

    I was wonderin, any of y’all used thar Wasp Injection Kinfe fer knife huntin? I sure would like to see some U-Tubes of someone stickin a pig with one of these here Injectin Knives.

  • S.Belden

    Oh no a weapon should only be in the hands of “Law Enforcement”. No “Civilian” should have the right to protect themselves and no law abiding citizen would ever consider carrying a weapon that can inflict damage. What a bunch of facist whiners. Any law abiding citizen should carry a weapon to defend themselves with. If a person tries to kill you, you don’t want to wound him you want to inflict as much damage in as little time as possible. I hate listening to all the LEO’s talk about how qualified they are. There are civilians that have never been in the military or law enforcement that are not proficient but masters of firearms. What you do as a profession has no bearing on your training and experience.

  • Ricardovitz

    Guarantee Kill??? It ain’t a guarantee kill unless you load up that WASP Injection knife of yours with some hard core poison….or use propane instead of CO2 and light a match. In fact, I’m thinking of inventing something similar, but my WASP Injection knife will have an extra button for the BBQ Ignitor and adaptors for propane cannisters.

  • charles

    Anyone who discounts this knife’s capability is an idiot.
    Any weapon should be treated as a loaded gun, doing fuck around and nobody gets hurt, blam, safety doubts fixed. Useful: very, we all have the right to defend ourselves. So..why not carry it. I hope all you idiots that hate this knife and weapons in general come to the point where you need one and you get severely injured at the hands of some stupid gangsta or a wild animal, it takes a bad experience to learn some things

  • Sesketh

    I have some significant concerns about the usefulness of this tool, and consequently, the likelihood this is just going to end up in the hands of recreational users who will hurt themselves and others. For military and tactical combat operations, I wouldn’t want to mess with a Navy SEAL or Green Beret with a spoon let alone an existing tactical blade weapon. One of those inserted four inches to the hilt in the right place is one dead enemy combatant… Gas injection to “explode organs?” What possible additional benefit is there? “Stick it in the bad guy and push the button to kill him.” A soldier in that situation needs combat knife training, not a gimmicky solution, so it seems to me. A rifle, a sidearm, a tactical knife, the world’s best training, and the brains to know that all three of the first are a last resort. I’ll take that over a “gas knife” for our folks in uniform. I have really serious reservations about this as anything other than a disaster waiting to happen.

  • Ricardovitz

    I git a testimonial here fer all y’all. This here Wasp Knife is fer real. Yessiree, boys ‘n girls, its a down ‘n dirty kill’n machine. Dern’t know what you want to use it fer, but whatever you is killin with it, I guaranty its gonna be deader ‘n bloodier than a two-legged pig fart’n on a gator’s nose.

  • Gregg

    What a great collection piece

  • Scotty

    Hold on people. These comments are way off the mark.
    This knife is best used for its’ original purpose as a supplemental tool for the serious diver. Having been in the sport for over 40 years, I use a bang stick when in dangerous situations because of the added reach and lethality of the tool. This knife strikes me as a weapon of last resort in a life threatening situation. I don’t like getting close to an aggressive or agitated shark under any conditions. As I happen to have a spare $ 400 lying around, I probably will purchase one. First, I want to know how secure the activation button is. A discharged WASP is only a knife. As far as land use is concerned, there are many other alternatives to this knife that would serve the individual better.

  • What?

    Maybe I should start developing knives with “Depleted Uranium Tips” or knives that inject “Plutonium” into the victim, and release it to the public (just to be a menace to society since some people would absolutely LOVE to get the chance to kill the person next to them that “looks like a threat”) and then have some idiot justify his/her right to defend themselves in self defense, of a weapon that inflicts lifelong damage.

    Sick world we are living in, and its no wonder we are going nowhere with beneficial technology, fast.

    Last question, “When are we making Depleted Uranium rounds legal for civilian use worldwide?”

  • Nate

    We live in the USA a country with privledges like no other nation. We believe in self reliance and ones right for freedom and living together in peace. You can kill somone with your hands,car,etc. We can not stop evil we can only choose to not partake in it. I believe that a responsible person should be able to own these and many other types of weapons. They serve a purpose if i was attacked in water or in backcountry by bear or what not and this could stop it and prolong my life; i want one. Life sentencing for crimes is for somone using this for evil not ownership or self defense. Whoever the idiot is that wants to hang people for having these is evil and is more dangerous to the public then this knife

  • cody

    You guys are a bunch of stupid fucks it’s a weapon for self defense IT IS USED FOR PROTECTING ONES SELF! FROM ATTACKS! LIKE WHEN SOME PSYCHO MOTHER FUCKER TRYS TO KILL YOU OR SOME ANIMAL TRYS TO KILL YOU! YOU DUMB FUCKS WHO THINK THE COPS ARE HELPFUL THE COPS DON’T GIVE A FUCK ABOUT ANYBODY BUT THEM SELVES

  • Jimmy

    This isn’t a knife for cops, military, shark hunters or other official whatnot. It’s a down and dirty close quarters killing machine. Even though a terrorist would have a fun time with this knife, why should they be allowed to own one, but not law abiding civilians. The bottom line is that this is the evilist knife ever inbented and I want one.

  • galuyasdi

    I no longer find it surprising that some people react illogically and it’s usually out of fear, whether they have the capability to admit it or not. 1) There has never been a weopon invented that was not used. 2) Only police and military should have weopons “like this”. Only 1/4 of the targets destroyed in Vietnam by my unit and the larger force we were a part of were actual military targets. Most were typical of the first where we exterminated a village of 93 human beings to get 5 SUSPECTED VC sympathizers but left 6 survivors, one of them was pregnant. This is the same military. 3) If people took responsibility for their own safety and stopped waiting for others to protect them they would be forced to examine things more closely.
    While it would not be my choice for knife, it makes sense for someone who has a disability to own. If I were to spend much time on/in the ocean I would own one. If someone doesn’t like it don’t buy it and cease trying to control other people. Doesn’t the American people have enough restrictions already. I would rather be shot at than have a bomb thrown at me and I’d rather have a WASP pulled on me than subjected to nerve toxins made from vegetables.
    Not many switchblades used in knife encounters now. Cheaper and much stronger knives are used. That’s a real step forward isn’t it? Seems like a lot of folks are busy living in fear instead of just living. Like the lady who thought guns were awful- I asked her if I was walking down the street while carrying a camera and a handgun and witnessed her being dragged into the bushes by 5 or 6 cr

    Guys, a knife is a knife. It’s just a tool. It’s not an evil killing machine! It becomes evil when the person uses it for some atrocious purpose.

  • http://yahoo masterchief(usnavyseals)

    As prior military, 15 years in the Teams, i can tell you this is a very vital weapon, of course placed in the right hands. I own two of these and use them during hunting and fishing season also when i dive as well. for those that are against this type of knife, maybe you should experience the wrong end of an AK-47, or a iraq 7.62, or maybe go head on with a CQB(close quarters battle), as a Navy Seal i have experienced all of these between Seal team 5 then 6, I can tell you this was a very vital piece of equipment, so for all those opposed to it, maybe you should just stay home, for those that have respect for it or any weapon, live free and enjoy life, for the rest…go hug a tree

  • MrEthiopian

    Your kidding me? Visually this instrument was designed for underwater use only, with gloves. The activation button would get hooked up or accidentally discharged, not to mention the Bolster is far too short for anything but underwater usage. If the people at WASP were smart of if the Military were truly interested in this solution, it would have completely different design for your suggested usage. I would put a trigger safety on the opposite side of the release and have larger angled or tipped Bolster or even knuckle guard of sort.

    Oh ya and the web site should have verified data of usage, to date the web site only shows the toy exploding a watermelon, great tool if you want to destroy enemy fruit.

    BTW – Shut-up!

  • smokehill

    Mounted on a short pole, this would be the perfect “Last Defense” weapon for sharks, grizzzlies, or other large & dangerous game.
