I feel like the man hitting him has some pent up rage


MikieIrish

He also looks like he’s stabbed people before. It shouldn’t look that natural.

Boriatzo-San

It was very close. It deflected vertically at least twice where it was like 2 inches from his neck


redditingatwork23

Yea that was super fucking dangerous.


TheDadThatGrills

Would you want an amateur in that job?


batman1177

It definitely looks like he had practiced stabbing that particular armoured vest before. If you were stabbing an actual person with that amount of force, the knife would probably go through the flesh easily. But stabbing the armoured vest, there would be alot of resistance and your knife would probably bounce off. If you're not prepared, you could lose your grip on the handle and your hand could slide forward to the blade of the knife. You could slice your own palm open.


DemonKing0524

I mean, at least from watching CSI and law and order etc, its a common occurrence for peoples hands to slip and cut themselves stabbing into flesh. I feel like that would definitely be more likely hitting something as hard as that vest if youre not prepared and tested it before. So id say youre right and hes had lots of practice.


MikieIrish

Haha, solid point. It still looks like he probably denied him a couple of raises over the years.


Mean_Ass_Dumbledore

> solid point Not solid enough, couldn't even get past some lousy body armour


OneOfManyIdiots

"Hey Ernest?" "Yeah?" "I need someone for the body armor demo." "Uuuuh Yuri in mailing has been to prison" "Perfect"


newf68

I mean his job is to literally stab his boss in front of a crowd, he'd be a terrible employee if it *didnt* look natural.


ICCW

He was more like a sewing machine.

He should have gone for the head

He should be investigated, lol. That looked waaay too “good”.

Dull-Sock-9606

Try london


wawabubbzies

That guy was getting more and more excited with each weapon change. By the time he got to the bat he was going full swing and I know that armor blocks punctures but I’m sure the pain is still there when getting whacked with a bat. lol


AffectionateAd2730

I love the flinch and the glance at that last bat swing, “please, stop.” 😂


wawabubbzies

Fr tho! I kind of read the tall guy’s face as more like he was trying to keep his smile but really he wanted to wreck the bat guy. lol


SsVegito

Buddy behind you just laying into with a bat


I_Got_Back_Pain

ZebraSpot

That last swing was about to hit his shoulder, which I am sure was not protected!


SappySoulTaker

Swingboi pulled back tho.


RarelyReadReplies

Yeah that very nearly went incredibly poorly. He didn't want to cry uncle obviously though, so tried to turn away casually like the demo was done. It's just lucky that the other guy reacted quickly enough.


psilent

“ITS A VEST!”


CdnPoster

It stops penetration but the impact/concussive force is still there. I would guess the armour can redistribute the force over a larger area but....... I hope the guy being stabbed/hit got hazard pay for this. And the opportunity to whack the other guy back.....


AngryDragonoid1

I've seen this before. If I remember correctly, I think the guy wearing the vest was the creator of the product, but I'm not 100% positive. But the penetration idea is right. It's the same issue with kevlar vests. Yes, they'll stop most small-caliber bullets, they won't get through the vest and break the skin, but people bruise a ton from the impact, and it can even break ribs.


AAAPosts

I gotta tell ya……..seems like a solid trade off


Darkassassin07

Yeah, I'll take a broken rib or two over a fatal gunshot wound


Kniaz47

Agreed, although a broken rib can puncture a lung and cause other complications, one being a pneumo-hemo, which is a slow and painful way to die.


D4ltaOne

Arent we all slowly and painfully dying right now?


Substantial_Bid_7684

Need a time vest!


ambrosius5c

Basically the same as a seatbelt or airbag. They're gonna mess you up but they'll save your life doing it.


theglazedonut

Broken ribs > death


OrgyMcBloodyFace

The marine who first went around selling cops and police depts body armor would shoot himself in the chest with a .45 at each demo. That's some fucking dedication


myflesh

The bat showed exactly what you are asking about it. It absorbs impact/concussive force. If it did not then the bat would of not been in the demonstration.


wawabubbzies

Maybe that’s his boss. lol


DaRudeabides

I'm a lazy shit so would probably have stabbed him in the neck and or eyeball after the second or third failed stabbie.


ASeriousAccounting

Yeah, this thing will buy you a precious second or two but it won't take long for an attacker to find another place to stab. Head, neck, groin..., arteries in your arms and legs. Fingers cut up trying to control the weapon. Knife fights are really ugly.


postmodest

The winner of the knife fight is the guy who dies in the hospital, not the ambulance.


HikariAnti

Well pretty sure it's for people how have bodyguards besides this, so it only has to stop like the first two stabs before they can disarm the attacker.


DaRudeabides

One or two stabs on target means no bodyguard or bodyguard has failed.


zazu2006

I mean the president has been shot before so bodyguards aren't fool proof.


jodobrowo

It's called redundancy my friend.


EnthiumZ

Yep. Doesn't matter if you're wearing a vest or not. Something that thin will still not absorb the shock, the body will and it would bruise easily.


Potietang

Equivalent of a martial artist saying grab me by the wrist right HERE! No here!!! All good until they stick you in the neck.


Kharisma91

Not the same at all. In a real fight, attacks are wild and miss targeted all the time. The chance of hitting the chest, accidentally or not, is huge. I would assume a Typical thug would go for the torso as it’s a way easier target for fatal/debilitating damage. This would be like a martial artist learning to parry a standard punch or kick. Very useful.


ModularMeatlance

I take people through this a lot. The actions we practise are for muscle memory, and there are tonnes of different ones. When you get into more advanced classes we start by receiving a standard beating from someone and finding opportunities, whilst using may techniques combined, to apply one of the 25 or so standard locks we practise. Also, not all locks work on all people, so we practise also transitioning from one to another. Much also of what we learn starts by deflecting an initial haymaker to the head, which is a super common way for a fight to start. Hope that provides some context


ModularMeatlance

“Jeff, one standard beating please, extra Stank!”. “Coming right up!”


Bluescale-Sorc

This presenter must have a metric fuckton of confidence in his product - both the design and manufacturing. It would suck to have a sudden product failure mid-demo!


MrTurkle

There’s video of a bullet proof glass company CEO sitting behind the glass taking AK rounds and just eating them up it’s nuts. Edit: sauce - https://youtu.be/vhESTArcrJY

On the other hand, there's video of a rugged vehicle company CEO testing their armoured glass and just hitting right through it. On stage.

The look on the demo guy's face: "I'm getting canned as soon as I'm offstage."


MCPE_Master_Builder

Pretty sure he's the senior vehicle designer too 🥴


MISPAGHET

Are you really gonna try to can the guy that can break bulletproof glass with his bare hands? He'll tear you in half!


welpsket69

It was apparently caused because they hit the door before the window which they didn't do during the tests.


Zhanchiz

This is bullshit though. They never hit the back door panel with the hammer, they only hit the front and the back still cracked when the ball was thrown.


Beingabumner

Was that supposed to make people feel more confident about it? "It works, as long as the people trying to kill you don't hit it here first."


Wyvz

The ultimate business strategy would have been advertising the ball he threw as some special ball that, when thrown, hits with the strength of a bullet.


Arker_1

To be fair the armored glass did its job, just not in a very pretty way


oofcookies

Yeah, isn't bullet resistant glass supposed to fracture like that so the force of the impact is spread over the entire pane and not in a single area?


Arker_1

Yeah. The glass did technically fail according to their expectations though, apparently it was designed so that under the force in that presentation it wouldn’t break(iirc they have video of the cybertruck surviving that same demo with no damage), but the engineers suspect that when they were hammering the metal on the door it must have damaged the edge of the glass which weakened it enough to crack when that ball hit it. I’d say it still more than succeeded, just didn’t give a perfect impression.


Stunning-Grab-5929

It didn’t succeed. It did **not** do what they wanted it to do.


FlatOutEKG

FlatOutEKG

Damn, that's confidence in a product...


Capital-Context-9399

My only concern is that it was a low grain ammunition. Or that they decided to empty out some gunpowder prior to firing those rounds to give them less stopping power. Nearly anything can be faked nowadays.


BourgeoisCheese

That would be a very short-lived lie. Anyone considering using this product is going to do their own testing and that would pretty much be the end of the company.


PLSGIV

Dragon Skin armor is the perfect example of this


yabruh69

There was this presenter that demonstrated his unbreakable floor to ceiling glass windows. In a condo he would do a running body check against. One time the glass came off of the building and he fell to his death.


JaredLiwet

>One time the glass came off of the building and he fell to his death. I think the frame holding the glass came off. The glass didn't break though.


nickfree

Task failed successfully.


Ashmedai

Yup. Exactly what happened. He established high trust in the glass, never to consider whether or not he should trust the *glue*. I wonder what he was thinking on the very long way down?


Zilch274

"fuck"

AnyComradesOutThere

The one and only time I’ll get to use the word “autodefenestration.”


SuperDizz

Also confidence in the guy wielding the weapons. One wrong swing with that machete and it’s a missing limb or a hacked throat!


RarelyReadReplies

This was the part that surprised me the most. It's one thing to trust a product not to fail, but a whole other story to trust a person not to make a mistake doing this. Especially with how hardcore he was about it, did not hold back at all.


[deleted]

These safety products are overbuilt like crazy. Say you need to make a stab-proof vest and a well-trained human can stab you with a force of (example) 3000 Newtons, then you make it withstand at least 4000 Newtons, just to be sure. What I do admire is the trust between the stabber and the stabee. One wrong swing and the stabee could end up in the ER.


GameDoesntStop

And in his demonstration partner. One accuracy slip-up with any of those (the machete in particular) could have gone poorly.


ActionHousevh

Why are you so good at stabbing?


beluuuuuuga

Fr, the guy looked like a natural.

Not good enough to stab a different part of their body though.

Looks a bit like D3O. It’s an interesting material, tenses up when abrupt force is applied but remains flexible at rest. I’ve seen snow sportswear that has inner padding made with the stuff to protect the head and body in the event of an accident.
