Nottinghamshire Police is piloting a scheme where victims of domestic violence will have their kitchen knives replaced with blunt utensils, to help stop partners attacking them in their own home.
Around a hundred "no-point" knives will be given to victims who have either been threatened or attacked with a knife.
It comes as police say they're concerned about the high numbers of knife-related incidents in the home. They say the new scheme could help save lives.
Those being given the knives need to agree to have their knives replaced.
Police say they will be given out in "appropriate high risk domestic situations".
