A series of experimental stab-cuts was made using three knives and a variety of clothing. The cuts were made through single and multiple clothing layers, at angles to the warp and weft of the fabric, and when clothing was loosely draped or stretched over a surface. Comparisons between knife blade widths and resulting stab lengths were made. Stab-cut lengths were generally smaller than the blade width, with only 7% of the cuts measuring more than the blade width. Those cuts were all made by one knife. It was concluded that stab-cut dimensions in clothing do not accurately reflect the knife blade width.
