This has to be a British anomaly. I carry a knife every waking second and other than the usual things in life, not only I am still alive and kicking but I have not been stabbed once my whole life! (Self inflicted cuts for stupid handling do not count)
So maybe it is some evil magical stuff happening in the country formerly know as Great Britain. Voldemort and his cronies probably cursed the isles and anybody with a knife will end up being stabbed and killed by another person with a knife who will eventually will be stabbed and killed….you know the rest.
Then again, it makes more sense that the “stats” show armed criminal element playing stupid games (engaged in criminal activity) who win the most stupid prize of ending in the slab of a morgue rather than assigning some idiotic properties to an inanimate object.
Hat Tip to Malroadkill who goes out of his wy to find me tweets that will give me a nose bleed.

Heard about this yesterday. Still boggles the mind they feel (‘cuz it’s all about the feelz) this is going to do anything. Probably going to be as effective as them idiotic “knife surrender bins” (https://www.redstate.com/brandon_morse/2019/04/03/surprise-uks-knife-surrender-bin-ends-criminals-knives).
Some time ago I ran across my old Cub Scout pocket knife. Oh the horror, an elementary school student carrying a pocket knife sanctioned by a “right wing, paramilitary organization.” For the last 60 some years, I’ve carried some form of a pocket knife pretty much constantly. Never stabbed or cut anyone except for a couple of minor self-inflicted wounds.
But the stats show that people who carry knives are much more likely to be killed in a stabbing.
Let me insert a Wikipedia-style, , here.
It’s no different than the old debunked lie from Garen Wintemute, “A home with a gun is 42 times more likely to suffer ‘gun violence’,” or whatever that so-called “study” concluded, with the implication that the mere presence of an inanimate object increases the likelihood of victimization.
And because, “Carry a knife, get stabbed,” is too bold for the place where Great Britain used to be. Also completely false, but since when has truth mattered?
