    This article by Dan Sharp is correct at time of publication, please check to make sure that your knowledge of the law regarding edged tools is current.

    There are many myths and misunderstandings surrounding the ownership and carrying of knives and other tools with a blade. This article hopes to clarify the position and answer those questions that arise within the Bushcraft community.
