The Kevlar/Dyneema Controversy: As some of you may have remembered, I did some real quick legwork and found “knife resistant” vests for sale made of Kevlar. I mentioned the Kevlar choice in the comic for the 27th and got a lot of email saying Kevlar wouldn’t work but some thoughts on Dyneema. So I “corrected it, only to get more email saying “no certain Kevlar vests ARE knife resistant”, “No, you need ceramic plating” , “Check out Turtle-wear” etc. etc.
So, to make things simple I’ve changed Nash’s dialogue to “Hence my choice for a Knife-Proof vest!” There! Whew!
