Shocknife® has been nominated for the Ernest C. Manning Awards. 

The Ernest C. Manning Awards Foundation has been recognizing and encouraging innovation in Canada since 1982. By means of a nomination, Canadians who have demonstrated recent innovative talent in developing and successfully marketing a new concept, process or procedure, may be eligible for one of these awards:

  • Principal Award ($100,000)
  • Award of Distinction ($25,000)
  • Innovation Awards (2 at $10,000)*

*reserved for those without the benefit of research facilities or advanced education in the field of their innovation.  

This year the awards will be presented at a gala event in Vancouver in September.  

Shocknife®’s composite blade is incapable of cutting, but it gives you a shock that simulates the feeling of being knifed. For those involved in the military, corrections and law enforcement it is a huge step forward in inducing the fear and stress required for realistic training.

Shocknife® has also been selected by the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce as one of Manitoba’s Cül Companies.
