While the first test was a success, the second blow resulted in injury.
One of the men involved, who is reportedly in his 20s, was taken to the hospital after being stabbed.
The incident occurred after the two somewhat boozed men decided to test a newly purchased piece of armor, reported Sveriges Radio (SR).
According to reports, the two men involved were at the same party in Vittsjö, north of Hässleholm, when they began to discuss the man’s new protective vest.
By then, the men had “drunk a lot,” said police.
Having decided to test the protective vest, one of the men took a knife and stabbed it.
The vest worked.
When he repeated the test, he goofed and missed the man’s vest, striking him where he was not protected.
It is unclear where the wounded man was stabbed.
He was taken to the hospital and treated for minor injury.
The incident occurred just before midnight on Saturday night.
