If we have been unable to satisfactorily confirm your age you will then be contacted and asked to send to us proof of your age by post, email or photo-SMS. This may be in the form of a copy of your passport, driving licence or a utility bill.
UK Knife Law.
You must be 18 or over to puchase any knife products from our store
UK knife law allows you to carry non-locking pocket knives with a blade length up to 3 inches (7.62 cm) without any need for a valid reason.
You are allowed to carry a knife which exceeds these guidelines in public, but you then do need a good reason to carry it.
Gov.uk has the following to say on good reasons to carry a knife:
Examples of good reasons to carry a knife in public can include:
"taking knives you use at work to and from work"
"taking knives to a gallery or museum to be exhibited"
"the knife is going to be used for theatre, film, television, historical re-enactment or religious purposes, eg the kirpan some Sikhs carry"
A court will decide if you’ve got a good reason to carry a knife if you’re charged with carrying it illegally.
Abuse is still illegal
Using any knife (legal or illegal) in any threatening way, is illegal.
So using your (legal) Swiss Army knife in any threatening way is still illegal.
