What areas of your body our slash resistant clothing can/should protect:

  • Our throat, which harbours the carotid artery is certainly among the most at risk locations of our body.  A cut through the carotid artery would most likely result in death. Our slash resistant turtle neck jacket or sweatshirt would protect this area.
  • The radial artery can be found in our wrists, which often is subject to cuts during self defence or whilst protecting our face. 
  • The femoral artery is a general term comprising a few large arteries in the thigh.  Cutting of the femoral artery would lead to a massive loss of blood within e very short period of time.
  • The axillary artery is a large blood vessel to be found under your arm pits. Craig Wylde, a prison officer at Frankland High Security Prison had his axillary artery slashed attack in March 2010, during one of the most outrageous attacks on prison officers in the UK. After fighting for his life, he luckily survived. Our cut resistant t-shirts would have drastically reduced the severity of his injury. Please view our CEO's blog on Craig Wylde and the assault he has survived. View here
