You missed my reasoning. The dart is a hand razor blade. The blade is curved
downward and goes to a point somewhere from 45-90 degrees downward. When you
shoot this at someone, the chance of it bouncing off body armor or of it not
getting the fully contact needed is much greater than that of a pointed tazor
dart. Hence armor would protect you better against a razor taser than a normal
Does that make sense?
