Oh to be back in the 1950's where I could go out, listen to Stan Getz play some REAL music at a club, and then drive myself home without having to worry about some idiot gangster teenager who has been brainwashed by the latest Dr. Dre CD thinking that it would be a cool idea to "cut his thug teeth" by knifing me for the $3 I would have been carrying in my wallet, the very same $3 which would have already afforded me and my lady friend a fantastic evening with no expense spared on the town.
I wasn't born until 1985, and my generation would rather listen to some idiot "rap" (Retard Attempting Poetry) about how I should be violent and promiscuous. And this IS considered the new cool.
not anymore he grabs his shiny new knife slashing left to right wildly at bullys face. bully is scarred for life (deservedly or not) an little tony gets sent to a young offenders unit. so it dont really matter about the size of a blade, lives are still gettin ruined.

Just as much damage as any other solid object. A walking stick would be a much more effective weapon if used properly.
Swiss Army Knives are extremely useful and convenient tools. Sensationalist stories like these only help to put law abiding citizens under increasing threat of arrest.

I see the NWO has taken over the minds of some folks in the UK.
It's clear some of you people have been brainwashed by the same folks who don't want us carrying life sustaining bottled water or nail clippers on airplanes. I used to have one of the mini Swiss tools on my keyring until it became a nuisance having to remove it every time I needed to fly. Now when I need it I don't have it, so I have to scrounge for a tool or buy something for temporary use.
I guess the UK is becoming a real prison yard and they have all the inmates programmed to accept not having common sense by allowing people to carry convenient valuable tools.
I figured some day you nutcases would want people to have a license for knives, so I have to hire someone to cut my food.
