CRKT UK legal serrated pocket knife RRP £37 now £16.95 @ Heinnie Haynes

Found 10th Mar 2015
I don't own this particular knife but do own other CRKT knives and they are VERY good quality for the money.

This seems to be a good EDC knife and is UK legal, has great reviews stating that's it's very sturdy, very sharp out of the box and very well put together.

If you're after a dirt cheap knife, this isn't it. If you're after a good quality knife for not much money then this has to be in with a shout!

Not many good serrated UK legal pocket knifes out there so another good reason to buy... Great for cutting ropes, yarn.... Yet still has a standard blade for general use.

Hope it's a good deal for a few on here.

(Check out the CRKT keydashi on the same site also, very nice & novel blade... Silly sharp!)

knife deal, let the stabbing of cold votes begin

^ poor choice of words, but having a knife can have safe uses and can saves lives, (any Bear Grylls fans here?)

A simple man said some wise words to me once:
'knives don't kill people, people kill people'

seeing as it locks, need to have a good reason to carry it. crazy really, seeing as 99% of knife attackers use kitchen knives

It doesn't physically "lock", it just secures into position, not classed as a locking blade... But yes, a reason to carry would be required. I'm not suggestng this is to be carried for shopping trips and alike, more for outdoor persuits / work requirments.

Just ordered mine.... Accidentally ordered a(nother) torch too oO

Should have added that this paul Chen multitool for under a tenner is VERY Good for the money, amazing shears...

Try stabbing someone to death with your finger. Your "wise man" was merely mis quoting the NRA publicity machine that parrots "guns don't kill people,people do!" every time some murderous idiot in the USA kills a lot of school kids.

No knife is "legal" if carried for the wrong purposes.

If it's a non-locking, sub 3 inch bladed, folding knife, you do not require a reason to carry it. You are legally entitled to.

Unfortunately if you do not have a valid reason to posses this in public it is classed as an offensive weapon. If not it comes under a blades article in a public place law. You can be prosecuted for carrying anything if the police suspect it is used to potentially cause harm or if it could be used to commit other crimes. Sad I know. I believe the blades article law was to prevent people carrying these for protection then claiming its legal. Things are unfortunately only legal if you have a valid reason for carrying them.

No, you are wrong. As I said, you do not require a reason to carry a sub 3 inch folding knife that does not lock. You are legally entitled to. If you use it in a threatening manner or with intent, then it would legally be treated as an offensive weapon.

This is £17.95 with £2 postage on top.
It's also completely legal (although you would have questions to answer if the police ever found you with it. You couldn't be prosecuted unless you intended to, or did, use it as a weapon).
I've been carrying a UK legal Boker for a couple of years and wouldn't be without it. It's an immensely useful tool. Police officers have seen it and used it with no problem at all.
Just be sensible, don't play with it in public and never take it with you for a night on the town/pub or where you're likely to be searched as you'd have to leave it with security and might not get it back later.

Five finger death punch?

Or on a more realistic note, strangling, bludgeoning, beating, the list of ways people kill people is quite long...

Perfectly legal to own a sub 3" non locking blade in the UK.

I'd have had one if it didn't have the part serrated blade

Quite easy to 'stab' someone to death with your fingers. Through the eyes.

Remind us how many folk Palestinian 'murderous idiots' have killed by driving a car into them. Ban the car.

Those 'rules' are incomplete. There is an exemption under section 141a whereby the restriction on selling knives to under 18s shall not apply to sub 3 inch non-locking folding knives. So, under 18s can legally be sold something like a Swiss Army Knife, or this knife.


knives don't kill people.

Rappers do.

Guns for show, knives for a pro!

And there is an exception to your exception,if in the opinion of a police officer the knife of any size is being carried for an unlawful purpose then it is illegal.


Who in this day and age needs to carry a knife? It would be useless for a tradesman who would have his own specialist knife.

No you are wrong. It has nothing to do with "a police officer's opinion". The exemption is there within bladed article legislation and evidence of intent or actual use as a weapon would be needed to charge with carrying an offensive weapon.

Now you are just being silly, a police officer has to form an opinion as to what he is seeing. "I saw the accused waving the knife towards the other youths and formed the opinion that he intended an illegal act," therefore the knife becomes an illegal/offensive weapon.

No, you are being silly. You are describing the use of a knife as an offensive weapon so yes it is illegal. It has nothing to do with opinion. If something is used as an offensive weapon, it is an offensive weapon. It makes no difference if it's a pen knife or a tin of beans. Both are legal to carry until you use them as a weapon or can be proved to intend to use them as a weapon.

Just because you don't like the law, doesn't make your interpretation of it correct. It is legal to carry a sub 3 inch folding knife that doesn't lock. Unless you are using it as an offensive weapon or to commit some other crime in which case it is covered be those specific laws.

Mine landed today, very nice it is too!

Can't say that the "lock" is that secure compared to a spyderco for example but £17 well spent non the less (the £25 spend on another keyring torch was indulgent... But 145 lumens from an AAA,!!!)

No,it's still you,in order to arrest someone the officer must form an opinion as to the illegality of their conduct,You said they didn't,wrong. I've had enough officers in the witness box in 35 years to know that. If the officer does not believe that an offence has been committed or is about to be committed then the arrest is not lawful.

You are twisting this. It is not illegal to be in possession of a 3 inch folding non-locking knife. The opinion of a police officer makes no difference. If you are using it as a weapon then it becomes an offensive weapon in which case you may be arrested. That's it.

It's all about common sense.
Yes not everyone needs to carry a knife about. However depending on your hobbies, job or interests they can be useful and justified for carting about.
For instance it's handy to cut back some foliage to take a clear picture past a tree. However if the woman in the bathroom window spots you it's a charge for all sorts of offences.

It is not legal to carry one in all circumstances cart blanche whatever the length of blade.

Jesus - some people!!! This is in stock at £17.95 plus shipping (free postage if spend is £30+)

I have one of these, a good strong well engineered *LEGAL* knife. As others have said, sub 3", non-locking folding knife, therefore legal to carry WITHOUT good reason. Good reason comes into play with +3" and/or locking and/or fixed blade.

Needs to be unexpired.
