*K9 Storm Vests are tested for threat protection against a variety of common knives and found to be effective in defeating or minimizing injuries in most cases. The style/shape of blade, quality of steel, sharpness, angle of attack, and foot pounds of force exerted are all factors that influence whether or not a blade is defeated.
