    Much better getting a replacable blade knife , better options like Stanley or scalpel blades for dirt cheap , best thing about this is that gorgeous mahogany part , I'll bet the qualitys lacking too , no bronze bearings in this I guess etc , had this kind years ago , was always going wobbly and needed constantly tightening up to stay safe (edited)

    Rather surprised to see this - I was told some items aren't permitted for sale if they're made from mahogany unless there's evidence it's recycled (something to do with furniture I think?).
    If this is a locking blade then it's not UKPC compliant and you can't carry it without a reason that a coppa will accept.
    It's a remarkably foolish law as non-locking blades can collapse on the user, it's happened to me in the past opening a rather large monitor box. Cut me quite badly at the time, my client was freaking out at seeing some techie bleed all over his $5000 monitor.

    I think this is the problem with the law. It effectively boils down to it being subjective.

    You'd be well within your rights to be using and carrying a locking knife there I imagine. But if on the off chance you were stopped en route its down to the day the police were having that determines how miserable your life will get over the next few months, CPS after that if theirs was bad, judge after that if theirs was bad.

    Or maybe it doesn't and the legal system in this case is sensible, but with the law as vague and open to interpretation it is, it's not a risk I'd choose to take.

    Personally I sincerely doubt the CPS would ever humour it, but absolutely believe an officer having a bad day would make my life an absolute misery in the meantime, and under the law they would be "mistaken", but not "wrong".

    And so - accidents ensue!

    I have this knife.

    I use it to cut parcels open when I get home from work.

    It looks cool sat on my kitchen worktop.

    Better than a retractable Stanley blade does.

    Thankfully, the soft 420 stainless steel has not yet perished, nor the terrible quality bearings.

    The factory floor mahogany is also holding up well, despite its lacking quality.

    For less than £8 I have truly got what I paid for.

    Just don't bother. Buy an opinel.

    Plenty of similar knives without locking blades that are legal to carry - why would you buy this? If you need it for work, you're probably going to spend a bit more than £7.61.

    I have gone for it because of its looks - I have an alaskan ulu - that's a locker - I collect knives/bayonets/sabres etc

    This is a great little knife

    420 Stainless Steel is soft, so its going to lose the edge pretty quick. That said, it will be fairly easy to sharpen. Personally, I wouldn't bother.
    Not to mention that it looks cheap. There is a reason these types of knives are known as "Gas Station Knives"
    As with most things, you get what you pay for. Its a £7.61 knife. It's going to behave like a £7.61 knife.

    What alternative would you recommend that's lightweight- an opinel?

    For 8 quid that mahogany must be scraped up off the factory floor. Not that you should buy anything made of mahogany as it's not only non-renewable but loggers knock down 100s of other trees to cut one mahogany tree, and leave them to rot.

    Neat looking little knife, which if only comes in handy once for twice is worth it.

    I'm guessing the aluminium is painted but with it being cheap I wouldn't be surprised if that wears rather quickly, which would then potentially cause some corrosion issues:

    Why is this not legal?

    It is legal.

    If this is legal carry I don't understand why you would ever need to justify carrying it.
    The same if I was randomly stopped and searched by police and they asked me why I was wearing gloves for example... none of your damn business. Trying to justify why you're doing something legal will just catch you out. You don't need to justify yourself for a legal carry item.

    It's not legal carry without good reason:

    UK knife law allows you to carry non-locking pocket knives with a blade length up to 3 inches (7.62 cm) without any need for a valid reason.

    You are allowed to carry a knife which exceeds these guidelines in public, but please remember: you will do need a good reason to carry it. Gov.uk has the following to say on good reasons to carry a knife:

    'Examples of good reasons to carry a knife in public can include:

    1. taking knives you use at work to and from work
    2. taking knives to a gallery or museum to be exhibited
    3. the knife is going to be used for theatre, film, television, historical re-enactment or religious purposes, eg the kirpan some Sikhs carry

    A court will decide if you’ve got a good reason to carry a knife if you’re charged with carrying it illegally.'

    Only if you try to cut with the back of the blade...

    The main reason to have a locking blade is to make deploying it easier because you don't need a friction hold. If you're relying on the lock to stop you cutting yourself you should probably get someone else to do it for you.

    Are you referring to ease of use or speed of deployment of the blade. If the latter, the locking mechanism has absolutely nothing to do with it? (other than in rare circumstances where you have safety locks to prevent accidental deployment e.g. switchblades).

    Your example proves why the law works. If you are a fisherman and are legitimately going fishing you are allowed to carry fixed blade and locking knives. If you are a tradesman and have a locking knife in your toolbox that is fine. If you are a gardener and have a pruning knife in your pocket on your way to your allotment that's fine. It's only people randomly carrying locking knives that will have issues.

    There were 50,000 knife crime offenses last year. There were 3775 people hospitalised due to assault with a knife. I have not heard of any significant amount of violent crime using golf clubs or wheel braces, if there were almost 4,000 people hospitalised last year (many of who were under 18) from being assaulted with golf clubs I'm sure there would be new laws.

    Your figures are right, but you're missing out the most important parts...

    No.1 - 74% of all knife crime is committed with kitchen knives. Yet I don't see any drastic action being taken to change this.

    Instead, I see plenty of vague and confusing laws on knives that people 'perceive' to be dangerous. Often with no real statistical evidence.

    'Zombie knives' is one of the most recent editions and the perfect example of politicians implementing laws to pretend they're tackling an issue. The law is purely on how a blade aesthetically looks. Which other than in video games, has no real world implications on the leathality of a blade.

    No.2 - The law doesn't work. It hasn't reduced overall knife crime. In fact, knife crime was at it's highest level in 2019. It dropped during COVID and now we're broadly in-line with it again.

    What next: You can't own any knife that doesn't have rainbow coloured handle? Becuase black handles are too tactical and stealthy.
