Basic laws on knives

It is illegal to:

  • sell a knife of any kind (including cutlery and kitchen knives) to anyone under 18
  • carry a knife in public without good reason - unless it’s a knife with a folding blade 3 inches long (7.62 cm) or less, eg a Swiss Army knife
  • carry, buy or sell any type of banned knife
  • use any knife in a threatening way (even a legal knife, such as a Swiss Army knife)

Lock knives (knives with blades that can be locked when unfolded) are not folding knives, and are illegal to carry in public without good reason.

The maximum penalty for an adult carrying a knife is 4 years in prison and a fine of £5,000.

**Due to current UK Laws we require proof of age before we can send any knife / bladed article through the post. After your purchase we will contact you to arrange this. You can send a copy of your passport, driving license or citizen / validate card to prove this to us. The name on the ID must match the name of the purchaser. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Knives / Axes / Machetes etc are tools and are designed to make our lives easier. In the UK we aren't allowed to use them as weapons or for self defense so please don't be an idiot!

Swiss Army Knives

The Swiss Army knife generally has a very sharp blade, as well as various tools, such as screwdrivers, a can opener, and many others. These attachments are stowed inside the handle of the knife through a pivot point mechanism. The handle is usually red, and features a Victorinox or Wenger "cross" logo or, for Swiss military issue knives, the coat of arms of Switzerland. For information on knife laws in the UK: click here

Neck Knives

Neck Knives

A neck knife is a small fixed-blade knife which is carried by means of a "pendant rig", in which the knife is suspended from around one's neck, handle down, by either a length of paracord or by a breakaway beaded or ball chain such as those utilized for military dog tags. Neck knives are most frequently worn around the neck, but may be suspended from under the arm as well. They are sometimes worn under one's shirt for concealment, although this makes a quick draw nearly impossible, and even simple retrieval for utility purposes awkward. They are more frequently worn outside of a shirt. For information on knife laws in the UK: click here
 

Boot Knives

Boot Knives

Boot knives are small fixed-blade knives designed to be convoyed in a calf-high boot. They come with sheaths that carry a clip for fast drawing. These knives can be considered as everyday essentials and are well suited to military use. This type of knife is used by no less than Sylvester Stallone when he played the iconic John Rambo back in the late eighties. The First Blood Part II movie featured a boot knife which, along with other knives that were featured in all the Rambo movies, became an instant hit for their perceived indestructible appeal and craftsmanship.
