    As far as sword cane does i should think the length of the cane element dictates its classification

    You could have a 4" knife blade hidden inside a 3 foot cane and that would be classed as a sword cane. This knife isnt disguised as something else (an everyday non weaponised item) which is what i believe the law concerns itself with in regard to concealed weapons

    Well, this is not a question of personal opinion. That's why there are laws.
    But I won't argue with anyone.

    It's similar to that lovely seax I saw a while back, it's basically beautiful art, but if you want to use it/play with it best to stay on private land or have a valid and extremely convincing reason otherwise.
    I'm not ashamed to admit if I owned such a piece I would dress up and play with it like a real life toy as part of a fantasy costume, in private of course.
    Well, I too would love to do that!

    Oh and the comments gave me such a good laugh I read them twice! lol
    Thanks!
    I cheated of course I shaped the whole with an angle grinder, than finished it by hand with various sandpapers. That I scraped some of the softer year-rings out with a wire brush, and than used sandpaper again to a fine grit. A tiresome work, but it was worth it!

In my own mind I was merely considering that the item in question looked rather too much like a short sword cane for legal comfort so would raise a lot of questions. One question is when does a knife become a sword, at what length? The roman gladius was clearly a sword but relatively short and many a machete or parang could be considered as a form of short sword too.
    And again, your law is clear (unlike ours unfortunately). A sword has a 50 cm or larger blade.

    Looks like a very serviceable Wild Pig sticking piece of kit to me eye. Might even pass for use as a deer RTA dispatch implement.

    Which would imply that if the letter of the law was followed a great many machetes would be swords, and so would a number of scythe blades and even mower blades if they are big enough and I am sure some are. The law can be ambigous which is why there is case law that ultimately determines how that is applied.

    Might also at a stretch be used to grill wieners over the embers!
    See?

    Swords aren't illegal either.

    The knife in question here is simply a fixed blade. It is covered by exactly the same piece of legislation as any fixed blade, and that includes the tiny fixed blade in a Swisscard. Ok, it has a certain 'look' about it that suggests it has a certain purpose, but for all intents and and purposes, it's an art/fantasy knife. And it's an art/fantasy knife that towers way above any other of those types of knives.

    Just appreciate it for what it is. Actually, at a foot long it really would make a good pig sticker or deer dispatcher.

    Thanks Rich, but I have a feeling that your effort is in vain.

    Tell you what, if it does'n't sell I'll give you 150 and bolt it to my Defender's bonnet as a go-faster mascot.
