During the summer I went on a two week camping trip and decided to take my machete, I read the knife laws and decided to carry it in plain site strapped to my pack.
While waiting for a train two police men came up to me and asked me If I was carrying a machete, I said yes i was and Iam not trying to hide it which is illegal, one said well carrying a blade over 4 inch was. I told them what I was using it for and the older copper told me to take care of it and not to wave it around in public.
The younger one looked a bit confused and the older one explained that I had given a good reason to carry the blade and he was happy that my intention's were good.
So if your in the UK make sure you don't hide it and have a good reason to carry a big blade.
