Logic suggests that anyone so utterly lacking in common sense as to desire close mortal combat with a grizzly (mano a ursa) is probably also too slow mentally to be worried about the price. "A fool and his money....."

The knife company makes money and the gene pool is improved for the rest of us by the pending reduction - it's a win-win situation. Oh yeah, and the bear gets a free meal.

That's almost the dumbest thing I have seen. Only thing dumber is seeing a person with one who thinks it's cool.

"WASP Injection Systems, Inc. does not condone the killing of innocent creatures."

But if that bear takes your dinner, it ain't innocent anymore, is it?

We should start a thread on some other forum advocating for this knife. See how many guys we can get to carry these things around.

alternative bear protection on 07/23/2008 23:07:16 MDT Print View

if you think you need to engage bears in close quarters, this is a better choice, not lightweight however, but probably more effective:

and you might need these:

Hope you get the grizzley with the 1st shot because you will be disoriented after firing.

And... you'd want to make sure it was "unloaded" before cleaning you toenails.

As far as using it for shark protection, it sounds rather like a rumored anti-diver device that the US Navy trained dolphins to use...

Re: Bear Protection - Anyone have spray suggestions? on 07/24/2008 12:32:11 MDT Print View

Although using this product against a bear would probably give you about 5 seconds of warm and fuzzies, you could probably find additional content that this is also a dual use piece of equipment as the bear would be using it to pick you out of its teeth once he devoured you.

So I don't buzzkill this thread, anyone have any lightweight suggestions for bear sprays which actually work? I've heard horror stories about some sprays doing literally nothing to even the local dog...

The knife is certainly a much cleaner solution than the 12ga "bang stick" I used to carry when diving reefs mid-summer, but then the knife isn't on a 4 foot pole either. A little space between us would give me the warm and fuzzy I need.

bear protection for agile people confronted with de-clawed bears on 07/30/2008 15:00:24 MDT Print View

Clearly, the knife that freezes the griz's innards at the push of a button has been rejected by some sissies and tightwads.

Accordingly, I suggest a multiple use jug for the hiker in close combat.

At the right moment the hiker simply slides it over the head, making sure the bear's hat size was measured accurately beforehand:
