Well I thought I'd start a new thread...
I've enjoyed whittling over the years but after reading an old thread on here about the legal implications of carrying a knife, I've come to realise I could have gotten myself into a lot of trouble had I have been stopped for some reason by the Police . My trusty pocket knife (locking blade, 3.5inches) has been removed from my jacket pocket for good and now resides in the tool box in the shed!
So... What knife would be recommended as a replacement? Easy I hear you say.... Well, a few considerations please.
1). One sharp blade only (would consider two if one was for small detailed work).
2). Blade not more than a couple of inches max.
3). Folding blade, no lock and very stable - no side movement. I like nothing better than going for a walk, sitting in the woods and finding a stick to whittle. Not a valid reason to carry a locking blade as it's not for work but for pleasure if the need arose.
4). A comfortable grip. I can be whittling for several hours. Often just creating tinder lol.
5). I don't want to spend a fortune on it either.
Your thoughts and recommendations would be most welcome.... Please don't post how stupid I was or I should have known better etc. I know now I was in the wrong and had I have been questioned, the implications that could have followed. Helpful recommendations are what I'm after... Thank you.
