  • Tackling Knife Crime in Schools: New Measures We Need to Take

    The number of knife related crimes in the UK has increased dramatically over the past few years. As you open up the newspaper every morning, it is saddening how many of these crimes are being associated with local schools. This year is on course to be the worst in ten years, for the number of young people in England and Wales injured or killed in knife attacks. A staggering 37 children have lost their lives to knife crime so far this year, which highlights the distress many parents, teachers and pupils are experiencing at the moment. The recent rise in knife crime cannot be tackled in isolation; a whole community of people need to come together and work out a plan to combat these terrifying ongoing incidents.

  • 6 Steps for Smart Safety on the Streets

    Up until this year we would all stroll out of our houses for the day, in a rush to get to work on time, we don’t often think about our general safety or security. We live our lives as each day goes by without a second thought. After living in the same area for several years now, many of us have never felt unsafe or scared when heading out, morning, noon or night. However, this year things seem to have changed.

    We have been constantly bombarded with almost daily reports about knife crime in the UK and the way it seems to have escalated to a worrying level. We have never before had to think about preparing ourselves for a worst case scenario? It is important to remember that no matter where we live, we should always be wary of the potential threats. Educating ourselves on how to stay safe on the streets might just save our lives one day, so it’s time to open up our minds.

    Consider the follow six steps for smart safety on the streets and, hopefully, we will never get caught short. None of us want to live our lives feeling wary and worried all the time, but these notions will help us to be prepared for any unexpected eventuality.

  • Stab-proof vests for children?

    According to a case worker working for St Giles Trust children as young as 15 are buying stab-proof vests such is the fear for their safety.

    According to the Trust, which was set up to help young people involved in gang crime the youths that they are working with feel that carrying weapons and wearing protective clothing will give them greater protection. According to Bladerunner, who specialise in selling protective clothing, this philosophy is wrong on so many levels. Continue reading

  • New Ultra-thin Stab Resistant Plates - Exclusively from Bladerunner

    Stab-proof vests are a common sight on Police Officers patrolling the streets. Of course they perform a vital role in keeping Police officers and security personnel safe. You only have to look, however, at a Police officer wearing one to see that they are thick, uncomfortable and totally impractical for anyone who wants covert anti-stab protection.

    At Bladerunner we have been aware for some time that there must be a better solution to providing a truly covert stab resistant panel that gives added protection to vital organs. This has become even more important during the course of 2018 when there has been such an increase in knife crime.

    Working with our partners in Israel, a country that is probably more used to knife and gun attacks than anywhere else in the world, we have developed a stab-resistant plate that not only provides knife resistance to 24 Joules, but an item that can be worn under everyday street clothing and is totally covert.

  • Surge in knife crime continuing

    The surge in knife crime seems to be continuing unabated. Last Tuesday alone there were 3 knife attacks in 90 minutes and 6 stabbings during that 24 hour period. There have so far been 62 murders recorded by Scotland Yard.

    45 murders in the first quarter of 2018 against 23 in the same period last year. Hardly a day is going by when you do not read something about yet another knife attack.

    No one has come with a definitive answer as to why this is happening but it is fair to say that a lot of these knife attacks are gang related. We at Bladerunner do not buy into the theory that more people are carrying knives to protect themselves against knife attacks being visited upon them. Continue reading

  • Knife Crime - Getting much worse

    This year the statistics for knife crime are reaching horrendous, but not quite epidemic, proportions. As reported in last week's The Sunday Times* 16 people have been killed in knife attacks in London alone so far this year and we are not yet into March.

    One of the results of the 1996 Dunblane shooting, when 16 children and 1 teacher were murdered, was the tightening of procedures for getting a Firearms certificate or a shotgun license. Shootings in the UK (And Europe) are now relatively rare. Not so the USA where it is so easy to get your hands on a firearm. The bad news is that you don’t need any license to buy a knife and, even if you did, how simple is it to go into any cooking shop and buy a carving knife, or something just as lethal.
