Nice toy. Want one.

The title of this thread is slightly misleading, should read @amazon.co.uk, not .com.

Next best price I can find is £29.99 and these are £50 in John Lewis.

.........shame the Blacks one is not the same price :x:x

are these illegal to carry on the streets? (im hoping it is...)

As far as I am aware these are not illegal as the knifes are short therefore below the legal limit (I don't know this off of the top of my head but I think it is approx. 3 inches) and do not have any sort of locking mechanism.

That being said although an excellent price for somebody after one, I'd advise against this model generally - Everyone thinks of Swiss Army Knifes to be these cool super tiny little tools when in actual fact these feels (When you actually hold it) relatively large. Especially in depth - This can also make using specific tools more difficult than a smaller tool. For me a smaller tool is much more convenient as it means I'll actually carry it (Usually on or with my keys)... No point in having a great tool if you don't have it with you when you might need it!

I've left HEAT and REP as the price IS good for this item... Simply not a tool to my taste!

Cheers.

These are not illegal as the blade is shorter than 3.5" The larger range of Vicorinox knives which are more readily available on the continent would rouse the interest of plod if you were carrying one in an inapporpriate place as they are substantially more deadly. If you were stupid enough to use one of these for stabbing, as they have no lock for the blade you would probably sever several fingers so they are not generally used as offensive weapons thankfully. As noted above these are great as toy value but are a bit fat to be of actual tool use in the field so to speak.

[SIZE="3"]Would you not need a wheelbarrow to move one of these around? I have one with half the number of gadgets and I feel it is too big for my pocket as it gives everyone the wrong idea about what I have in my pocket.:whistling::whistling:[/SIZE]

Voted hot.
These are very handy.
Thanks:thumbsup:

It's been this price for months for the red one, so hardly hot, but still a good deal for those who don't know.

I bought one of these in Germany about 17 years ago. Great bit of kit that I use regularly, and is still in tip-top condition after all this time (apart from the pen which ran out a while back).

Yes, slightly bulky, it does so much as a result.

That is hilarious, does it come with some kind of index? I can just imagine somebody spending half an hour trying to remember where the right blade was!

I make a point of always having my great tool with me... :whistling:

Just been shocked reading the comments that someone has actually said it would make a nice toy. WTF?
In the week that children are dying as a result of knife attacks, here with have someone stating that these would make a good toy.

I just hope and pray that the lovely youth culture (not all might I add) we have don't read this thread. Then again, can any of the yobs read?

I don't think we should be advertising knives for sale, regardless of the size of the blade. A 1" blade can cause as much damage as anything longer.

> It's been this price for months for the red one, so hardly hot, but still a good deal for those who don't know.

No it hasn't. It's only just come back down to this price after spending many weeks higher. I previously bought it at this price about three months ago.

Don't worry grumblesheeve (an appropriate name btw) I very much doubt that any 'yoof' would be seen dead (sorry no pun intended) with a swiss army knife in their tracky pocket

Perhaps we should ban canteens of cutlery too!

I'm sorry to have to disagree with you on this one! I've quite an interest in the hobbiest area of "Every Day Carry" items - This does not include solely knifes (Infact I do not carry a single illegal knife and the largest tool I carry is indeed my Swiss Army Knife [One of the "Keyring" size therefore carrying a very tiny blade]) but torches, lighters, whistles, etc, etc.

The knife is very useful in a wide range of places - So often do I need to cut small loose threads on clothes or remove a tag without having to find a pair of scissors... Sometimes I might want to trim that nail that I've just tore. Often I'd like to cut through sellotape easily... A Swiss Army Knife does this - It DOES NOT function as a "weapon". Somebody attempting to use a knife such as this (Without a locking mechanism) would injure themselves a great deal more than any target.

A "cooks knife" purchased from any outlet (Homeware shops down to supermarkets now stock these) are infinitely more potent in the damage they can cause and statistically are much more relevant to the knife crime culture you speak of.

A dangerous item a Swiss Army Knife is not. I advise you have a look at one of these before you start sprouting rubbish... I take it you'll be walking to work tomorrow? Dangerous things, these cars...

Yeh I agree with you. Anyone can go to a supermarket or even the pound shop and buy a knife capable of stabbing someone.

swiss army used on this one,

and do you remember this,?
After being trapped for five days in the Utah desert, Aron Ralston was forced to make the kind of agonising decision that has probably been the subject of countless bar-room "what would you rather do..." debates: continue to wait for help that was unlikely to arrive, or cut off his own arm.

Mr Ralston, then 27, chose the latter. He used the boulder as a lever upon which to break his lower right arm then used a Swiss Army-type tool to cut the flesh, using the tool's small pliers to snap the tougher tendons. The decision to cut off one of his own limbs in May 2003 came after five days trapped under the boulder, which had fallen on him during a solo hike.

After running out of water and being forced to start drinking his own urine, he resorted to the "operation", which took him "about an hour".

Mr Ralston hiked a further five miles in the baking sun before being rescued.

ffs “During the trial jurors heard how Lee Harvey, 25, suffered more than 30 stab wounds” NOT 1 stab wound;-)

Mr Ralston used a Swiss Army-type tool to cut the flesh, using the tool's small pliers to snap the tougher tendons. It saved his life. This is good no:thumbsup:

Perhaps we should ban TVs in high rise buildings in case some idiot chucks one out a window and kills a passerby This may actually be a GOOD idea to STOP the Chavs watching soaps all-day:p

One last thing I could kill you with my bare hands, maybe I should cut them off with my Leatherman Charge Ti Now that is a dangerous bit of kit in the wrong hands Oh bu**er where did I leave my hands:?

So I take it it's impossible to slash somebody's face with one, or maybe cut their throat? Pretty poor deal then as for that price i'd expect a nice SHARP knife:whistling:

Its degrees of danger surely, let’s ban glass bottles and only use plastic glasses in pubs. Let’s get rid of McDonalds because some people are pigs. I could go on & on & on!!!!! :-D

As I have said before it is relative. You'll find a car can be FAR more dangerous but we don't give that a second though before belting up! Consider the statistics – One sensational headline should not brand Swiss Army Knifes (Or anything for that matter) with a bad (Uncalled for) name.

Give a Swiss Army Knife to somebody whose intention is to cause harm and I'm sure they'll find a way (And as I've said, it is surprisingly difficult without harming yourself - You will not be able to comment until handling one for yourself) however give somebody ANYTHING and they can cause harm.

What about the humble rope? Could hang somebody. What about those pair of scissors sitting on your desk? Has quite a blade, if you're determined. There are countless examples of everyday items being used in crime; A few cases are simply, I’m afraid, a sad minority.

If we were talking about the possession of a kitchen knife here then I’d agree. Nobody has a valid reason of use for one of these to be carried in person. This is a different case for Swiss Army Knifes. But do I want kitchen knifes to be banned? Of course not, they are incredibly important and useful – In their correct environment.

This nanny state that we live in already has to impose restrictions on what is "safe" and "unsafe" and as such restrictions are already imposed on knifes - Don't go giving them any other ideas; Who knows what other liberties they may take at the same time.

I reiterate, as a final point and one that I think you're avoiding. If you put somebody in a car there is countless damage they could cause, death upon death. Does the small minority of people that are so irresponsible behind the wheel warrant the rest of us be reprimanded? Most certainly not, and thankfully so!

Give a sensible person a dangerous bit of kit and they'll be sensible.
Give an irresponsible person a dangerous bit of kit and they'll be irresponsible – Danger WILL ensue.

If you think you fall into the later category then please do not purchase this knife... But don't expect those sensible of us to follow suit.
