However, the small contact area on the tip of a knife provides a very high KED, which is easily capable of penetrating soft materials such as conventional high-strength fabrics. Consequently, knife-resistant materials have been developed to provide the higher penetration resistance needed against high KED threats whilst preserving the thin and flexible properties of conventional textile body armour. Typical solutions have included modified fabrics, chain mail and articulated plates. Finally, there are the highly penetrative threats afforded by modern assault rifles.

The ceramic-faced armour is typically used in the form of a large plate which may be worn on the front and/or rear of the torso. Armour of this type is common in military service, with a range of plate types and sizes being available. Some armour designs also incorporate ceramic-faced plates on the sides of the torso and the shoulders, although such designs become cumbersome and are limited to use in high-risk and largely static applications. Textile body armour is typically used to back and mount the ceramic-faced armour and serves as a last energy-absorbing layer.
