Aren't all folders concealed knifes then?
oops i think i meant something more along the lines of disguised, much like belt buckle knives, lip-stick knives etc. because they are made tae be hidden
Getting this tread back on track again. No offense intended folks
Here's my usual EDC. I had two Opinels No.9's in my pocket of a hot day and they sorta melted together.
I can get away with carrying this living in France and all, in fact I think in rural Normandy it's illegal not to carry an Opinel.
Perfect for a spot of whittling.
Normally I have a Leatherman Supertool in my belt pouch... when I remember to slip it on the belt that is.
That's a superb Opinel conversion Biker - just... wow!
Southey... put down the gifs and back away from the keyboard
Hahaha sorry! That is a corker AAron!
I carry a Spyderco Squeak as it's small but still sharp and nice to use. The UKPK seemed to make some people nervous so I downsized.
As regards laws etc, isn't it great that the government presume that we are all guilty of something and are all killers and thieves in waiting. I miss common sense.
Weirdly it is not in fact illegal to own a ballisong - just to buy, give, lend, sell or import one
Wondered what this thing 'balisong' was, googled it and see that I have a butterfly knife. Had it for maybe 30years, can't recall how I came by it though. Have they been illegal for longer than that? I assume so.
PS, it'll be in a odds sods box in attic, if police want it, they can come and find it, it'll take the best part of a day I guess! Lol
I'm out 3 days a week on an Environment & Conservation course, carrying A Cheep multi tool, Mora Clippa & a Morris Tenterden Bill Hook.
I couldnt really see the point in leaving the mora at home when I have a 9" blade within arms reach most of the day. And the krydex sheath clips to one of the pockets on my work trousers pretty well.
That's just not true. Which statute covers the offence of murder? Answer: None. It's case law.
Biker, I love that! Very neat and elegant.
Putting myself back on track, my usual day to day pocket filler is a little Trevor Ablett folder, like this one:
Takes and keeps a mean edge, and it's slim enough to be all but unnoticeable in most pockets.
Thanks. It certainly gets some attention over here too, thought I'd get burnt at the stake for desecrating a piece of French heritage, but I've had nothing but positive comments about it. Anyway thanks for your comments folks.
Some sweet looking EDC's here. I found my Grandad's old EDC the other month, I remember seeing those in the early 70's so they must be quality penknives. I'll get a pic of them later today and show 'em.
Not true you can carry a sub 3" S139 exempt knife in school no law against it infact no LAW against the kids carrying one tho school rules may differ ( school Rule is not Law of the land)
schools have their own version of S139 but it jsut stipulates sentencens for infraction and adds for educational use to eh list of considered good reasons
teh Expemtion for a folding pocket knife is still their and their is no age limit either
It's a novelty, it's obviously a knife when you examine it - you could say that about a bit of antler.... "officer that man is carrying a knife disguised as a short stub of antler"
It holds a poor edge and is under 2 inches long, but it fits nicely in my pocket, I won't cry if I loose it and it does all the jobs I ask of it.
Any way back to OP
Im currently using one of my own a simple idea to see if its robust enough
same principle as the Bushkey a kydex handle and a Kydex Eyelet as the pivot
Which I guess proves someone's earlier point about black and white - I suspect I should pay more attention on zebra crossings in future!
are you telling me there are coppers out that that dont know murder isillegal????
the CJS is in a worse state that i thought :O
Don't be silly. That's not what I said. Anyway I don't want to further derail the thread - I suggest this conversation belongs elsewhere.
