right. that is why british survivalist sites talk about the restrictions of survival knifes that have already occurred. discussions of is this or that hunting knife legal are common.
But the thread seems to be more about the coming knife seizure that the UK faces

I'd imagine the police wouldn't be cool with it either despite it fitting the legal parameters. Shame as it's quite useful.
(it is illegal to...) carry a knife in public without good reason - unless it’s a knife with a folding blade 3 inches long (7.62 cm) or less, eg a Swiss Army knife

Why would the police care, unless you are carrying it around with you for no good reason and the blade is more then 3 inches.

But that's the point many of us have been making; there is absolutely no problem with carrying a knife and using it in exactly the way you have described......its not illegal to do so and no-one has seriously proposed that it should be.
