This body of research assessed the penetrative stab performance of the United Kingdom Home Office Scientific Development Branch’s (HOSDB) P1/B certified blades against the readily accessible Stanley Tools 1992 trimming blade. All tests were performed against the HOSDB KR1-E1 impact energy of 24 Joules on HOSDB KR1 certified body armour specimens. Results demonstrated that the Stanley 1992 trimming blade posed a 30% greater stab threat in comparison to the HOSDB P1/B blade. This paper demonstrates the threat imposed by readily available utility blades and a requirement to enhance existing body stab resistant body armour test procedures testing procedures.
