Alright /b/ I need a mask, or even a design for a mask (include materials) that will protect my eyes and face from fingers, knives, or pointy bits.
Get a ballistic mask. IIIa protection that will protect from stuff like 9mm and falling on your neckbeard.
Just take that and line the mask with a thin black material at hobby lobby for 2 dollars.
Shut the fuck up you stupid nigger. No mask is going to protect your eyes against knives and shit without blinding you- riot helmets do that, not fucking masks.
Besides, the fucking mask you uploaded is for fucking airsoft and will break if you get hit with plastic fucking BBs. You only like masks because you are a tacticool anonymoose faggot. Please die.
Also, Security Pro USA and bluedefense (dot cum) make pretty baller Ballistic Masks.
What do you expect?
If you want it to protect against knives you'll need pretty avdanced stuff.
Because knives can be stabbed into things and are made of steel.
It's more difficult to protect against than bullets.
Good point on the blinding thing. I was hoping there was some tough plastic or fiberglass integrated into one of these designs. I apologize for offending you with my ignorance.
Where do you even fucking live where you feel the need to get a mask like that? Mine is getting shipped to me in a few weeks, and I own a few firearms, but that is just because I am a /k/ommando.
Also, if you want something to protect against knives and shit, http://www.securityprousa.com/seporihe.html?gclid=Cj0KEQjwvLGfBRDfkrr19KDS-7YBEiQA8CoFJ_PjmDMmvmwMWXgws0RjF14OSGH-QUDwNFjYCIJhaa0aAhoH8P8HAQ
You'll need single crytsal saphire lenses, for instance.
Those are fairly resistant to injury, and used in tanks, for example.
The mask itself could be some kind of abrasive plastics foam; something light that's hard to pierce through.
Maybe a kevlar reinforced plastic or rcc.
Slashing is much easier to deal with, just need a coif or the like. kek
A chainmail balaclava.
>and Mojave sunglasses
That's kinda pimp, actually. Could be combined with an additional mask covering the face.
I guess. technically, you could still see out without eye holes or it could be designed with finer rings in front of the eyes and now mouth hole.
Your fucking head is chainmail.
Seems pretty cool if you're a superhero.
A mask designed for high end protection against firearms (Medium) Knives (Hard) and random objects/brute force (Dude what are you doing shooting up an SAS base?) will A cost a small fortune and B not look very cool. fighting is hard and nasty, not fun and impressive
If OP actually thinks a chain-mail mask is going to protect his "bretty face" then he is gonna get his shit fucked up. He really should just shoot himself.
Also OP, next time ask .k/
not likely, haha
I dunno though, chainmail is a little loud. That and its hard to incorporate into my outfit. Aesthetics aren't exactly first but they certainly are appreciated
What do you need this for anyway? Is pic related?
I agree. By that point you're better off putting them in a tank.
Well, you wear some padding underneath. It would be virtually immune to any knife cuts.
Stabbing and swords not so much but still some protection.
I can post the materials upon request if you need. The list is lengthy so I don't want to waste my time for no reason. If you give me your email I could send you a pdf of the instructions as well. You may need to ship some parts from india, china, and possibly japan (but only if you want to get fancy) . Build time is under a week if you have a lot of free time and access to a workshop. Let me know, I'll be here.
You could just make one from leather. It's fairly tough all around, cut/stabbing/blunt force.
Of course it's no kevlar/carbonite composite but it is protective.
People used it for thousands of years.
It's also cheap and easy to work with.
>when your having sick fantasies about getting fucked by 10 of your ponies from deviant art
What the fuck did I just read?
Full face helmets are for faggots. You are a big guy aren't you?
I guess you'd have to read up about some treatment methods, like boiling it (which makes leather hard, I think), but overall it seems like a good starting point.
It certainly won't ruin you financially.
And indeed, maybe get a pair of small welders googles or laser protection goggles and swap the lenses with a high grade transparent ceramic or sapphire.
>spending a shit ton of money on an armored hockey mask
OP just get a fencing mask. full coverage and good visibility.
>you only like masks because you are a tacticool anonymoose faggot
>Mine is getting shipped to me in a few weeks
My fucking sides
Yeah, I will need to see at night. This is stuff I can fashion with almost no worksman skills right? Or should I ask for some help on this kinda stuff?
Ha. Why spend money to go rob a place?
Well, the lenses... are hard.
It's the whole point.
Sapphire is Mohs hardness 9.
Fairly close to diamond.
You'll either need to get somewhat fitting lenses and goggles, modify the goggles or have the lenses custom made (although that's not too strange, I think, it is more expensive).
Normal glasses and plastics make for rather weak lenses. Easily scratched or broken.
>Poor facial hair
5/10 at most
Okay anon, whatever. Keep telling yourself that.
>Walkin down duh ghetto
>nigga jump out all leik "eyy nigga giv me yo money befo i pop a cap in yo ass u french looken niqqa"
>"En garde!" I say as I stroke my neckbeard and pull out my sabre
>Get shot in face
To bayd i didnt wer dat armuh'd hockee mask huh, nigga?
>being this retarded
Apparently you didn't read the thread. OP is a fucking faggot who wants to prance around on the streets wearing his fancy chainmail mask to protect his pretty little face and to look le uber 1337 xD. I am keeping mine in my gun safe with my guns and flak jacket.
Tacticool shit happens when you use something that has no purpose. Like a bipod on a pistol or a holographic sight duct taped to your scope. Silly nogunz.
Anon, you can put together something like this for cheap. Might want to protect your neck a bit more too
Seeing as the kind of people I'm leaving for the cops are users of hard drugs (coke, meth) I'll stick with safe and mobile. So hard ceramic/sapphire lenses and boiled leather mask it is
(and for future posts I'll be going by "Maverick". I'll be back with updates some day)
>not knowing how replying and greentext works
Yeah its much less faggotory to own one in a gun safe along side your flak jacket ready for when that all-out war starts on the streets of your hometown. seriously who the fuck owns a domestic flak jacket and then has the autisticity to imply that you will someday use it
paintball masks don't protect your neck retard
>To bayd i didnt wer dat armuh'd hockee mask huh, nigga?
OP was asking for a blade-resistant mask you retarded monkey.
Ballistic masks aren't even that good because they're pretty heavy, zero ventilation and you can't cheek weld.
Well, as long as it's ABS plastic (which it looks like) that is not too bad.
>Nokia cellphones and chargers are made form ABS
I once beat a Nokia charger with a sledgehammer.
It's incredibly robust.
Of course there are some disadvantages, but heat won't really be a problem, for instance.
I wouldn't trust those goggles, though.
>probably some bullshit polycarbonate lens
I'm a new designer, just made those for op, hope he enjoys
There is this thing called reading, perhaps you might want to try it sometime, or a little more efficiently next time.
get this map OP
it's similar to the kind that i wear when i go out trick or treating or crime solving
they call me The Stig
Just use some chloroform, the bitch will never see it coming. and won't have time to pull out a knife!
OP, it's obvious you are going to be attempting some non-lethal crime fighting, and/or revenge. If you want to confuse and fuck up these guys before you attack, I suggest a sonic grenade. Protect your own ears, chuck it into a small room and people lose their minds for a few seconds. Act fast though.
It's not really about 'stab proof'.
Few things are stab proof.
More strivtly it depends on what you stab with, but knife stabbings aren't easy to deal with without solid plates of steel or a harder material.
Lots of force on a tiny point.
>hence we already ventured into saphire goggle territory
>Being prepared is pretty autistic. More autistic than prancing around in the streets wearing military gear, at least.
You realize how stupid you sound, right? If he was really trying to protect himself he'd just fucking carry a gun instead of making himself look like a target. Have you ever noticed that when Soviet spies went to the U.S, they didn't wear Soviet military uniforms?
>what is concealing your power level
>Walkin down duh ghetto
>nigga jump out all leik "eyy nigga giv me yo money befo i stab yo french looken ass"
>"En garde!" I say as I stroke my neckbeard and pull out my sabre
>Get stabbed in the back of the head 8 times
This is one of the most retarded threads I have ever been in. It's literally just a bunch of babbling autists trying to post circlejerk bullshit about how if you buy [x] you will be invincible, and how [x] is cheaper and stabproof and will make you a total alpha male.
You guys are the same people who go to /k/ once in their life and come back thinking the the Moist Nugget is the best weapon on Earth.
nigga thats a goddamn space marine.
It's called 1337 3D marketing faggot. Go back to COD Ghosts where you can be tacticool away from us sane people.
Well if you've never been in a knife fight, get the fuck out of this thread.
Buildings are pretty brittle on average.
But I just expressed myself badly.
These vests are like plate armor, they will handle general assault just fine.
Melee just has a big unknown variable in the power and skill of the attacker.
A given bullet goes the same speed no matter a little girl or a giant fired it from a given gun.
The same is not true with melee weapons.
Hence it might be knife resistant.. but there's people capable of still inflicting significant damage through it.
With the same knife.
Hence it is more difficult to grade than ballistic vests and more unreliable.
Just because I have not been in a knife fight does not mean I do not know what I am talking about, if stab vests did not work the police would not wear them, fucking birth some common sense into your head.
Well, the attacker is gonna stab other places if he gets the chance.
It's not full plate after all, just protecting the vital organs.
It just protects you from suddenly be stabbed in the gut.
>seems pimp for prison guards
no, police and swat teams wear stab vests cause they look pretty. How can you honestly be this stupid? Because you personally have not worn one and were stupid enough to get stabbed you are now under the impression they do not work?
Yeah, of course you should wear two wool balaclaves under it, although it's not as bad as you make it sound.
Not really worse than without it - but it also offers zero protection against blunt force.
Hence why I think by now a fencing helmet is overall more practical for the same function.
Calvin Clackson, 21, of Edmonton, pleaded guilty Tuesday to criminal negligence causing bodily harm in the Oct. 15, 2012, incident that required friend Justin Harder, 18, to undergo emergency surgery for a bleeding chest wound, the Edmonton Sun reported Friday.
The court heard Harder had been wearing a purportedly stab-proof vest and invited Clackson to test it out with a folding knife.
"Unfortunately, the vest didn't work and the knife went through the vest and into the chest cavity and Mr. Harder was seriously injured," prosecutor Mark Huyser-Wierenga said.
Provincial Court Judge Michael Allen said the stabbing was a serious incident that could have been worse.
"It was foolish for the friend to offer the invitation," Allen said. "It was criminally negligent for the accused to take up the invitation.
"This is a serious event, this stabbing," he said. "I don't care that the victim was stupid ... acting stupidly. This could have been a death."
Get this m8. Quality mask, even has power of light infused
Well, folding knife could mean serious business.
Something pushing this with 100lbs of force is not easily stopped at the tip.
Pohatu master race reporting in
Some people in the U.S military wear something similar to this.
