Amazon being the largest global online retailer is very desirable for retail companies trying to reach greater audiences. Building a successful e-commerce website is difficult, very difficult, so the temptation of using a sales platform like Amazon is almost overwhelming.

As Lucy Cavendish reports in the Daily Mail, it was far too easy for her to impersonate her 13 year old son and buy a range of goods that are age restricted. A knife, porn, alcohol and violent games were added to her shopping list and in the blink of an eye purchased and quickly delivered without being challenged to provide proof of age.

Explore the french connection from the Hearts of Darkness
Bastinelli Creations founder and head poncho Bastien Coves has a hands on approach to knife production and from his small workshop in France, Bastien has produced some refreshing designs that have been making waves since their arrival in 2009. Bastinelli Creations knives caught the attention of hollywood film makers and have since made their debut appearance in the film Lucy.
Bastiens reputation as a leading french knifemaker has been forged with the production of a range of individual custom made knives that are well-made and based on a design style that’s simply stunning. Bastien says that: “Creating a knife is my passion, it’s more than a tool, the knife is a fellow traveler.” By the looks of it Bastien’s travels have been more Hearts of Darkness than a Roman Holiday.

We have just been approached by Radio 5 Live to appear on tomorrows programme in regards to the sale of zombie knives. Tomorrow at 7.15 they will be discussing calls from a local authority who has called for zombie knives to be banned from sale in the UK. If possible, tune in and why not join in to discuss your views.
Hunters Knives received and email yesterday from Daniel Wainwright, a journalist from the Express and Star newspaper, in his email Daniel asks:
I see you sell Zombie Hunter machetes on your website.
There are campaigners against knife crime in the West Midlands calling for them to be banned.
Would you be able to explain why people purchase these knives and what their practical use is? It is argued that they are intended for nothing more than to threaten or even to kill.
And it is suggested that the wording of the adverts, while light hearted, is glorifying the possession of dangerous weapons. Would you have anything to say in response?

Daily Star Article: Police make fresh call for machete ban with 100 incidents in month
The UK press likes nothing better than hacking the phones of famous people and to sensationalise (news) stories in the interest of selling more newspapers. So, it’s no surprise that in between the pages of c-grade scantily clad celebrities, killer insects and the latest Jeremy Kyle advertorial the Daily Star managed to insert a soundbite report on the growing concerns of the british police in relation to the spiralling use of machetes in violent crimes.
