Knife crime has been with us for years, nothing new about that, but the government, and Police, have been cracking down on it and have had some success, until last year that is. In the 12 months to June 2017 there were 36,988 knife offences which is a 26% increase over the previous year and the highest since 2011.
Knife crime is more prevalent in major cities and is often associated with robberies and sexual assault. This is a worrying trend and one of the reasons we are seeing an increase in sales of cut resistant clothing at Bladerunner. Clearly there is a limit to how practical it is for everyone to go around wearing thick and uncomfortable stab-proof vests, however anything that one can wear to reduce the risk of injury from an attack is helpful.
Our range of anti-slash clothing will go a long way towards preventing injury from a knife. We supply a range of stylish anti-cut clothing, has no appearance of having knife protection and can, in an emergency situation mean the difference between serious injury and surviving unharmed. Incidentally, all of our protective clothing is currently 25% off for a limited period, so it is the perfect time to protect yourself.
Anti slash clothing has always been a difficult area. If you want it to be stab proof it really cannot be successfully disguised. That is why our range of anti-slash T-shirts and anti-slash hooded tops represent such a perfect halfway house.
We are also finding that our cut resistant gloves are becoming more and more important in staying safe. These are not only useful to security personnel but to everyone. If you are unfortunate enough to be threatened, or attacked by someone with a knife our anti-slash gloves will at least allow you to grab the knife by the blade without do serious injury to your hands. Knife resistant gloves are becoming more and more popular in the security world, particularly with door personnel at entertainment venues.
