    UK Legal Carry Blade

    So it looks like I'll be in Europe again in a few weeks. Last time I posted something similar, I was looking for a blade that's legal in Germany. Well, this time, I'll also be in England. I'm looking for some definitive information on the criteria of a blade that's legal to carry there from someone that knows. I know a Sypderco UK Penknife is legal, but I don't really like that one and am looking for some alternatives. Who knows the rules?

    Thanks in advance.

    Oh... wrong UK. Can't help.
    I have a very strict gun control policy: if there's a gun around, I want to be in control of it.

    I carried the Spyderco UK last summer for three weeks in Scotland & England....It was the best I could find that still opened easily with one hand & enough knife to not feel totally disarmed across the pond......Actually bought two off of ebay before we left for a trip over there.....only one came home...TSA or UK security swiped one from my checked bag.

    I'm not sure all the knives linked in the last post are legal to carry? I'm not from the UK but sometimes a visitor. While there are some other European countries with extremely severe weapon laws, the UK is unfortunately one of the most uncomfortable countries concerning self-defence and carrying tools for self-defense at all, especially because of the Prevention of Crime Act 1953. Be careful with every object that policemen might find inappropriate at certain places, even a tiny Swiss army knife.
