    A knife is a tool not a weapon in my opinion, I often carry one (a multi tool one mainly) but I also carry a wrapped razor blade in my wallet as an emergency first aid tool in case of Bee stings (a phoibia I have)! Many times its come in useful. The police and politicians who spout the diatribe about if you carry a knife it will be used against someone or yourself is utter rubbish! I would never dream of using a knife as a weapon, thats what the gun is for! seriously though its these idiots who ruin it for the rest of us!

    LOL if I could quote the op and call him a tool I would

    The situation is the same as it ever was , probs getting even better as suggested its just that now the media is picking up on it, nice going being ignorant enough to only concern yourself with stuff like this after sky news decides to cover it

    What can be done? Tougher punishments for these who carry for starters, atm the penalty isn't that high its worth the risk and never a better time to carry a knife!

    Showing my age....bought my nephew 14 a swiss army knife (£45). All my brothers got them at 13, right of passage and they still have them 30 years later.. Sister in law was horrified that I would buy a knife as a present. She said he could not have it (OK he is no boy scout but neither is he out on the streets). How sad, sign of the times I suppose. Just did not occur to me.

    Knife crime involving youths is on the increase though, and thats what a lot of reports are highlighting.

    Haven't they just increased the prison sentence to 4 years for carrying a knife? That's 12 months in reality and less 9 with a tag they'll spend 3 months in a holiday camp.

    Cut their hands off??!?
    (But what would you use?...it's a vicious circle!!!)

    Cut their hands off with a laser.

    Knife wielders are nothing compared to those little gits walking about with thermal lances!

    Damn good idea - preferably using a blunt blade

    Stop the benefits and they lose the funding for knives.
