OK, KK, have it your way.
I think that the "electro-knife" in question is a bad idea.
Didn't somebody invent some kind of stun wand?
If memory serves me correctly, it was a weighted baton-like object that could be used like a club, and delivered a taser-like charge through the tip.
I think that they used it in mental hospitals and places like that.

Don, buddy, of course it was a joke!
Kage, the subclavian and femoral artieries, along with all things carodid, are the only artieries I know of that can cause instant death and destruction. There are pincher tools (the proper names escapes me right now,) that can handily patch them up, and quickly.
Before the peanut gallery pipes up, the jugulars are VEINS - there's a difference. The primary one is if it gets severed, you're screwed.

I was just pointing that out in case some Wanna be Samurai comes by and thinks he should train with live blades.

Yeah, but me & KK's buddies.
If only he wouldn't sneak up and stab me in the face so often.
Them's my brain meats!

My knife training was VERY brief (only a few "classes" while in the Marine Corps...classes being more like seminars), and we worked with dull bayonets smeared with lipstick (apparently getting lipstick smeared on you was more humiliating than chalk...gotta love Marine Corps ingenuity).
When using a training blade coated with something, you get a very realistic feel for cutting. If you simply "tap" your opponent, then little to no coloring stains their clothing. Therefore, you have to draw cut or twist cut to make an adequate impression of where you essentially "Killed" your partner.
This is the problem I see with these Shock Knives. It seems that a shock is transmitted by even the lightest touch...which, in my mind, would contribute to more instances of "Knife Tag" than realistic cutting drills.
Using dulled/wooden blades and lipstick/chalk is a LOT cheaper too...though repairing your pride after coming home covered in lipstick takes some work.
