Sorry, but this is worthy of a picture in this thread. It must be the most ridiculous things I've ever seen.

As of when?

Have we suddenly become a country with hands damaged through blades closing?

I think you have got it wrong!

Although leathermans are **** for unlocking blades, although I think the newer higehr range ones lock.

This has been discussed many times on this site and the relevant legalisation posted

http://www.lawgazette.co.uk/opinion/comment/law-lock-knives-need-re-examination

Section 139 of the Criminal Justice Act 1988 aptly describes the lock knife as: ‘A folding knife which is secured in an open position by a locking device and can only be released from the open position by the pressing of a release button.’ A while back I asked the Home Office to clarify any ambiguity arising from whether or not a lock knife was illegal under this statute and it replied: ‘It is an offence to possess “lock knives” in a public place, irrespective of whether the blade is actually locked open at the time.’

Where does it define that?.....

(1) Subject to subsections (4) and (5) below, any person who has an article to which this section applies with him in a public place shall be guilty of an offence.

(2) Subject to subsection (3) below, this section applies to any article which has a blade or is sharply pointed except a folding pocketknife.

(3) This section applies to a folding pocketknife if the cutting edge of its blade exceeds 3 inches.

(4) It shall be a defence for a person charged with an offence under this section to prove that he had good reason or lawful authority for having the article with him in a public place.

(5) Without prejudice to the generality of subsection (4) above, it shall be a defence for a person charged with an offence under this section to prove that he had the article with him—

(a) for use at work;

(b) for religious reasons; or

(c) as part of any national costume.

(6) A person guilty of an offence under subsection (1) above shall be liable on summary conviction to a fine not exceeding level 3 on the standard scale.

Additionally, the scope of the s.139 does not cover Scotland (where I am) although I remember the three inch rule being introduced here - so there is similar legislation.

I also remember a guy here being fined for carrying a sgian dubh (as a Scottish national dress knife) after some procession some years ago. He had made the 'mistake' of picking up a girl at the event then when leaving her home the following morning continued wearing the entire outfit, and was convicted as 'he should have carried it home wrapped...' - '...as he was not returning from the original event' - although this is from a legal system that charged a man with contempt for saying 'aye' instead of 'yes', and has verdicts of guilty, not guilty, and we don't have a clue.

Strangely the Home Office quotation 'from' the content of the 88 Act when search upon returns the following....

The quote matches with these pages on the net

...so unless its an error or misquote from the HO, or s.139 has been shown as unamended - then it would not appear to be the law anywhere other than in the minds of the HO.

Law on lock knives is in need of re-examination
Thursday 05 February 2009 by Mike Finn


When we buy from a reputable high street store, we trust the integrity of the store to sell goods that don’t have the potential of being illegal when we leave the store. The paradox here is the fact that selling is legal but possession is illegal. The lock knife is bought by decorators, electricians, campers and a multitude of other members of the public who do not know that possession in a public place is illegal.

Dealing with cases as an expert witness, I have had reason to buy lock knives from leading stores that are perfectly described in statute as prohibited weapons. In one case the defendant was going home with a few bits and pieces in a carrier bag, including a lock knife. He told police he was going home to do some decorating – he received a custodial sentence. The Home Office perspective is that it is not illegal to sell lock knives, but it is clear that possession in a public place is a different matter. Some stores even include ‘lock knife’ on their till receipts, no doubt prima facie evidence that the item is a lock knife, and invaluable in proving a case against someone who has the receipt with them.

Section 139 of the Criminal Justice Act 1988 aptly describes the lock knife as: ‘A folding knife which is secured in an open position by a locking device and can only be released from the open position by the pressing of a release button.’ A while back I asked the Home Office to clarify any ambiguity arising from whether or not a lock knife was illegal under this statute and it replied: ‘It is an offence to possess “lock knives” in a public place, irrespective of whether the blade is actually locked open at the time.’

There are few ways to explain yourself out of lock knife possession in a public place. Unlike ‘reasonable excuse’ in the Prevention Of Crimes Act 1953, you have to show ‘good reason’ (section 139 of the 1988 act), which has a much tighter interpretation. Saying that you forgot it was there is no excuse. You could say that you use it in your work, but even this explanation will not vindicate you – after arrest it will be a matter for the courts to decide. Finally, there is no way you will convince a court that your lock knife is a religious instrument or part of your national costume.

Gang problem
Woolworths disclosed last year that the utility knife (lock knife) it then sold complied with all relevant trading requirements, and that it had strict under-age purchase procedures. This is admirable, but the word on the street is that this type of ‘utility knife’ is becoming the ideal gang weapon. It is easy to purchase, compact and easy to conceal, has a very sharp replaceable blade that can be disposed of after ‘use’, and locks firmly in place.
The reality is that there is a greater chance of the police arresting the respectable citizen who has innocently purchased such a knife from a reputable store, because they will have a more overt approach to its possession. The streetwise gang member knows the legal situation and has a number of covert methods for keeping such a knife out of sight until needed.

Let’s just recap before we lose sight of the paradox in this legislation. Stores can legitimately and legally sell lock knives to the public, but having them in a public place is an arrestable offence. Is it me, or does something have to be seriously re-examined?

It would have been nice if you had also included your "i stand corrected" message here rather than just to me.

He is a typical cop, and tries to make up the law as he would like it to be rather than what it actually is.

To date I have had...

"You just cannot drive through green traffic lights without checking there is nothing coming through the lights in the other direction"

"The law says your tax disk must be at the bottom right - do you expect us to have to look over the entire front window?"

"When you passed us you were clearly doing over 120mph, so we had to turn and catch you." - "So your fiesta could turn and go faster than 120mph to do that" (A non traffic police car cannot get a conviction for speeding, but can send out an offer of a fixed penalty - hoping you will say you did it and accept the penalty as it would appear less than a court would offer upon conviction- but as it could never be corroborated so would not go to court).
