    TBS Boar for me at the moment. Great little knife!

    Classic Swiss army knife. Everything else is either too long or has a locking mechanism so this is the only legal one.

    I think he means of the ones that he owns.

    Yes, sorry. Thought that was obvious. I wasn't saying out of all the knives that exist, only the SAK is legal!

    For me it has to be my G&G Hawk Beetle. Light weight, addictively fun to play with, and non-traditionally pretty:

    Does Mora make a folder though?

    You do like taking things off topic

    No, they don't. Why should they? If they thought the market was worth the investment, for a well established fixed blade knife company who already have their niche, they maybe would have done.

    On on the other hand I'd never buy a TBS knife because they won't admit they're probably China made, and I wouldn't want a Scandinavian grind on a folder anyway. I've got an Enzo PK70 just sat in a drawer. It's ok, really nicely made, good fit and function. The reasons it sees no use are:

    It's a scandi. So limited greatly in the various uses an EDC should have.

    It's not one hand opening. That's essential in EDC folders.

    Regardless - I mean there's usually no bias against mass manufactured knives.

    Yeah I do go tangent often enough. This time I thought I was bringing it back on subject though (only folders are UK legal for EDC if I'm not mistaken)

    Only sub 3" bladed, non locking folders.

    However, with good design, as in the Spyderco UKPK, Urban, PITS have a deep finger choil, making them much less prone to closing when using the tip. I have a life scar from a SAK. Both the UKPK and Urban also have a half stop on closing to prevent the blade snapping shut on your fingers.

    Does look great, but does the thumb thing not make it one hand opening, which isn't legal?

    I don't live in Denmark. That's the only country I'm aware of that specifies one hand opening non lockers are not legal to carry without good reason (I don't know if there are exemptions for good reason there, just hoping for their sakes!).

    There is nothing in UK law regarding how many hands it takes to open an S139 exempt blade.
