I did introduce myself, just but there is something seriously worrying me.
I have sent off for the mora training knife from Woodlore to learn with and was seriously considering a Rosseli long axe as an accompanying bush tool.
However, i have just been directed to this article about the carrying of knives in the uk http://www.telegraph.co.uk/opinion/m.../ixportal.html and to be frank it has realy freaked me out.!
I understand one cannot carry a fixed or locking blade IN PUBLIC without a very good reason. What hope have i got with an axe and a 4" fixed blade in some woods?
it is possible of course that if i were spotted and reported that i could demonstrate what i have been doing with my tools and show the policeman even but somehow i just think i would get pounced on
Is it worth the risk? ok, silly question but i dispair.
I wish there was such a thing as a definitive answer or written conduct code that wasn't so grey.
Anyway i am realy interested in your views, experience and suggestions. As previously stated i am like a dog with a bone when it comes to buscraft. I want to make this a very real and large part of my life but with such restrictions i feel like i am getting beaten over the head.
Thanks in advance
hope to post more possitively in the future
