Spyderco UKPK,Spyderco Pride,CRKT Edgie,Boker Buddy.Oh wait Benner said those Basically any non locking (liner/frame/lockback or other locking mechanism) under 3" or 7.62 cm is allowed (and where the blade folds into the handle).Remember....no gravity knives, no flick knives, no "combat" knives, no auto's, no switchblades', no butterfly knives and no disguised knives.If you breach this the maximum penalty for carrying a knife is four years in prison and a fine of £5000.And breath I reckon best value is the CRKT Edgie...best performer Spyderco UKPK...best all rounder SAK Swisschamp.Any questions feel free to ask or PM

Can you guys carry opinel with lock ring popped off?There's also the smaller opinels that have no lock, I think No.5 and below. Any 58mm, 74mm, 84mm, 91mm, 93mm Vic. is OK. Technically the 108mm is legal as well but as its over 76mm with the tang its probably not wise. Obviously the larger 111mm Vics. are a no no. Most of the 85mm and smaller Wengers are OK but any with the padloc system are a no go.What about plier based MTs? The LM Juice range are OK but what about others? I'm always slightly concerned about tools like the Mini or the PT-510 as whilst there is no lock on the blade once the blade is out and the tool closed back up the blade can't be folded back into the handle, how would this be viewed? Neil
Also, strictly speaking, saw's aren't legal EDC either. Again though I think that is being a bit OTT.

So where can I buy a lightsabre...Benner....would the PP be viewed as a form of frame lock? I honestly don't know and reckon it would take a stated case at a court to decide it.As a mod why don't you sacrifice yourself for the greater good
Given the present climate perhaps it would be wise to keep the list to those we know to be legal rather than think are. Then again, given the reaction of people to any size or shape of blade we could just give up now and just presume they'll be grief if we dare to use a Classic in a public place It might also be an idea to mention that vehicles are also considered public spaces and that all bets are off as to what you can or can't carry on the public transport system Isn't the law so much fun Neil
...The Knifeless Fuse http://leatherman.com/mul...tools/knifeless-fuse.aspx is a safe one as it has no saw or knife.

Are they that much more than a UKPK? Not really, now go buy one so I can play with it "The blade is instead held in place with an springsteel key, a technique which has been in use for more than 100 years and which ensures that the blade does not fold." They seem very confident of that Anyone own one of these?Neil
