Too bad our British friends could not carry OH in their country  :(
Benner, if you volunteer as a firefighter even not full time will you be permitted to carry the OH emergency SAK?

Thanks for clearing that out. So a volunteer firefighter can carry locking blades.

Do the wallopers really haul you aside and say "right there son, now where's your reasoning for that there blade?"

Various blades are illegal in Oz, but I've never really had any strife over it.


To use the vernacular, the Laws are there to protect us from dickheads, so just don't be a dickhead, and you'll be fine.

We do in the more remote rural areas of Scotland.  I admit that isn't much use to you chaps down there. :)

Nomad, you're right in that it isn't likely people get stopped, but if you are caught then you will be charged.  Ben isn't doing anything to get around the Law, the blade is to long and it locks so he would still need a specific reason to carry it, "just in case" is to general an answer and wouldn't do.  What Ben is addressing is a public perception of knives.

I say go for the two handed opening Ben, at least you will have something a bit different.

That's what I'm wondering - would you really get charged, or would you just get a "keep out of trouble mate" and be sent on your way?


I've had my differences with the local police, sure enough, but generally, if you're not causing any harm, they don't crack open the little notebook just for the sake of it.

These days, you'd get charged.  Once upon a time, there would be a good chance if it looked like you weren't going to be causing bother with it, that you'd either be told to take it home or have it confiscated.  Those days are gone.

The only question now is if you'd be done for carrying an offensive weapon or the lesser charge of a sharp/pointy thing in a public space.

You can't carry any lock blade knife/tool ? Even multitools (like Leatherman) ?

I'm not a lawyer but basically that's correct.  At least not without good reason.  You have to be able to prove the good reason :) 

The UK's Police National Legal Database gives a nice clear non-mumbo jumbo explanation.

oooo...  it says:

Possession of a multi-tool incorporating a prohibited blade/pointed article is capable of being an offence under this section even if there are other tools on the instrument which may be of use to a person in a public place (screwdriver, can opener).
So no multi-tools as well...

It's the reason I stopped carrying my Supertool and got into SAKs.  I also have a PST for the same reason; non-locking blade.

You'd think not wanting to have the thing fold up and cut your fingers off would be a "good reason".
