April it is then! Let's do this! How about this in April, and in September we do the TSA Challenge!
No blade? THAT'S a real challenge!
I would absolutly disappoint Mayor on this challenge, on daily i use blade really much on work so i would not join this challenge Only Tools Matters
I wrote a reply yesterday, and then deleted it. Here goes. Mods, if this is too political, I apologize, but would absolutely disappoint the Mayor of London as well. In New England, it's an insult to call someone "Guv'nah" (Governor in our accent). Kind of like telling someone to "have a GREAT day" whe. You really mean for them to go f^)k themselves.Not to get political, but since it has ready been alluded to, I cant join a challenge that supports making people accustomed and comfortable with being subjugated in this way. REAMERPUNCH, no reflection on YOU, good, sir, but I sit this out on principle, though I realize my actions will have no outcome in London.

If you use blades for work, that's a reasonable excuse, so carrying a knife is justified and legal, and perfectly welcomed to take pictures of for the challenge. It would not disappoint the Mayor of London.
Point taken. I was thinking of a challenge that would be more than just using a specific tool or SAK range etc. A month of avoiding using blades seemed quite interesting and challenging. I only named it the "Mayor of London Challenge" ironically. I obviously do not support his thoughts. Australian laws also require a "reasonable excuse" for carrying blades, and I am technically breaking the law by not having one.If the name is a problem, we can rename the challenge to something else.
Yes, this thread is close to going political but still relevant to the forum's main topic so please let's keep the politics out of it and try keeping it tool related. England/London isn't the only place with similar laws. As RP said, downunder folks have similar laws, as do a few EU countries, and some US states as well. So let's not turn this into one country / city laws bashing and rather concentrate on the challenge at hand. Heck, look at it as something similar to a month without pliers and how to manage without them. Going bladeless for a month. And report how you survived And thanks guys for keeping it tool oriented till now.
If he is that frightened of blades.How does he eat his steak......Or is he a vegan???Do you EDC steak knives?If he needs an operation, it will be interesting for the doctor, " guess we will just have to tear him open with our bare hands guys"Do doctors EDC scalpels?Nutcases like this moron just don't get It.One or two people in a thousand use their knifes as weapons and instantly all knives are bad.What if those 1000 people are all in one building?If he ever gets a say on vehicles , will he ban all cars because of a couple of Dangerious drivers? They're slowly banning cars from London. I'm 62 years oldNever used a knife as a weapon, other than in martial arts training.Carried all my life.Could, if I so wished, use a knife as a weapon very effectively.But prefer simply to use my hands or boe staff. Perhaps he is simply a cowardly little weakling who is scared of everything. Most of these morons are.Australia is full of them.
In any case, ReamerpPunch didn't make this thread for bashing him. It's just a light-hearted challenge to see how much we actually use our blades when we're out and about. And I want to join. But if I'm still locked in my house when it happens, my posts are going to be boring.
