That's essentially correct. The non-locking blade under three inches is the definition of a knife that can be carried as a general pocket knife. If you have a specific and genuine reason for "more" or for a fixed blade, you're perfectly entitled too, which is the point often overlooked in internet discussion. If you need a billhook for hedging, machete for clearing a vacant lot, fixed blade for fishing or food prep while camping, then go for it. Just be sure that you can justify the reason for carrying more than that sub-3" slippie.

Another example: As I have some health issues which affect my coordination and other motor skills, I would probably be able to put the case forward for having a locking blade over a slipjoint knife, but wouldn't have a cause for carrying longer than a 3" blade. Having submitted this reason, the onus would then be on the police to disprove this, or to prove that I was carrying it with nefarious intent, or was for example using it in an intentionally threatening manner, or making threats to harm someone with it.


The short version, is that you can carry whatever you need, but if you don't have a specific need, the law protects your right to carry a reasonable pocket knife everywhere which doesn't have specific "no blade" restrictions.

Almost completely correct, however only a judge can decide guilt and or intent  :tu:

Not quite :D

Magistrates (2 or 3)  or a district judge but only if you hit a a magistrates’ court  might pass judgement

but if you go to a crown court the judge is there to define points of law, direct the jury and pass sentence

The Jury decides guilt

Related question. I finished making a puukko for a friend but given the pandemic I would have to ship it rather than meet. Does anyone know how to send one? Most couriers seem to have exclusions for knives and sharp objects.

I send knives by Royal Mail all the time. Knives are ok as long as they aren’t on the banned weapons list. Just say it’s cutlery when they ask what it is.

Fixed blade puukko?

Call it a kitchen knife or for a specific purpose, aka fishing knife.

Send a card with it, maybe one or two fishing gimmics as addition if you feel like that.

I might lose a Vic' classic tomorrow  :ahhh :ahhh :ahhh

I'm off to the Shard (London) and it states "airport style" security scanners so I thought I'd give it a go  :dunno:

I might need to replace the standard black with an Alox version  :whistle: :rofl: (let's see  ;) )

You got guts Surge  8) You also have a very weird key... wallet?

I'm going to take a wild guess that you may be evaluating their 'airport style' security to see if it meets your lofty standards? Hopefully you won't be found out by someone with your enthusiasm  :twak:  :whistle:

Well, it worked  :tu:

I wasn't selected for a "Private Search"  :pok:

The problem is that I still don't know if it's allowed or not (if you ask, it's a whole world of pain) If you take the chance, as I did, and win  :woohoo: then it's all good  :think:

Still, it was a great day and the views of London (and Essex, Kent, Middlesex & Surrey) were fantastic.

If you could, you should  :tu:

What's wrong with my key wallet  :pok:

It has to hold a credit card sized access card (so I can get into the shopping centre I live in  ::) )
I'm in Wales next week so don't make me come looking for you  :twak:

It's different from what I know and am used to, thus makes me scared of it and lash out appropriately, you weirdo  :pok:

Mate, I know you're posh, but 'stealth camping' in Waitrose isn't the way to go  :whistle:

Pfft, you'll probably be dahn saff even this side of the border  ::)

FYI: I don't "camp" anywhere  :twak: (did enough of that years ago!)

I shall be arriving in Port Toilet Talbot tomorrow afternoon and then off to three cliffs the following day.

I shall leave the "Land of our Fathers" on Thursday morning and return to "Waitrose"  :pok:

I will be equipped with the FX & Bond along with my Fenix E01 (I trust this meets with your foreign laws) :dunno:

I should think your gear nice enough to warrant the cross border mugging shake down yes, I've already called 'dibs' on you as an Englishman of 'taxing' interest  :pok:

I've never been to Port water closet, but I hope you can make the most of your time in our lovely land given the unfortunate circumstances of your visit

...Wait that was far too nice to you err.... You smell of elderberries!

Well, we survived the trip (although GWR First Class have let themselves go  :dunno: )

To be fair you're not missing much at Port Talbot these days, which is now looking very sad & dated  :( It used to be a buzzing little town a decade or so ago but, with the steelworks on tenterhooks and the Covid issues, it's sadly in decline  :'(

It awl went as well as could be expected and my father was laid to rest on the cliffs with a view of both Port Talbot & Oxwich Bay  :tu:

It didn't seem appropriate to take MTO type pics, so I didn't  :-\

However, here's a shot from the cliffs (towards Oxwich)

Also one of the EDC (which Welsh Customs missed  :pok: ) back home with some Welsh pillow chocolates  ;)

NB: Far too polite a response so I shall retort with something similar about 'amsters  :whistle:
