Getting caught with ANY type of blade on the street/in cars etc is an arrestable offence in the UK now it seems.Folks have had swiss army knives taken
and been arrested.
If you want to use knives in the UK,become a chef,or a craftsman.
You can still use them as tools for jobs,thats about it though.
Does not seem to stop the feral youth from packing blades though does it?
I used to use survival/outdoors knives as a kid,could buy them without ID,no questions asked.
But I used them in the forests,and on the mountains-mostly to chop firewood and make shelters.Nothing violent.
These days,It seems kids today would rather use knives to stab one another,rather than go camping or whatever.
I did like the look of Silo13s short tanto though,and that "scrapper 6 scrapyard knife" looked mean as well.Simple functional yet solid knives are
usually the best workhorses IMO.
No chance in the UK though.
