Disc cutter& Rebar=bladeless mod
« on: December 18, 2019, 11:57:53 AM »
Presumably there is little value or market for used rebar knife blades.....

So with that in mind is the cheapest ghetto mod just to cut off both blades?

 Im probably not on the police radar or target group for a stop and search but being in the U.K and all the negativity regarding anything a bit sharp or stabby I'm wanting a full size tool thats a little bit closer to fisher price safe.


A real mod might happen later though.

You can buy a bladless rebar which has the added bonus of scissors.

Although because of the awl and saw blade i don’t know if you could still fall foul of a conciseness officer of the law.

My trouble is i never show initiative, but that's only because no one has told me to.

Why not simply remove, the blade (the thing is screwed together, so easily taken apart). Then simply put some washers in until you find time to put something more useful in their place?

I was stopped at the airport (visitor deck, is inside the secure zone, but still separate from the flight zone). Anyway, they let me keep my baby-blue Mini Griptillian, but insisted that I put the Vic Spirit XC in a locker :think:
So, there seems to be a degree of randomness, which is what makes all this so difficult.
Trying to explain that it is "knife-stabbing" and not "knife-cutting" for a reason (and for the same reason shorter blades are considered safe) can go both way, some may taking a "lecture" the wrong way.

What worked for me, when importing knifes that are borderline (dagger with a blade length of 301 mm, 60-300mm is illegal, but 301mm is legal, but length very much depends on how you measure), is that I wrote an e-mail to the customs-information-desk beforehand, then when the item arrives and causes trouble, I simply forward their own reply to my inquiry. So far, that has worked 2 of 2 times (so, not really statistically viable, but I will do it again). Essentially, you could write an E-mail to whoever is responsible for things like this, then carry the reply on your phone. When in trouble, you show the e-mail reply to the officer.

 Already have the bladed rebar...PE blade is not in the best condition.

So I cut the blades off its a no cost mod.

Also shows that I have made an effort to try to comply with u.k law.
