Lock knife with lock removed

Postby Edcuk » Sun Dec 30, 2018 10:15 am

Hi
New to the forum and must say very useful.
Anyway I’ve got a Cold Steel Tuff Lite which is under 3” and I’ve stripped and modified so that the back lock doesn’t engage essentially turning this into a slipjoint.
Is this now classed as uk legal ?

Any info is appreciated

Thanks

Hi Edcuk.

Good to see a fellow brit posting "welcome mate."

I would ask that legality question on Britishblades as they are sticklers for rules and regulations on that forum and know the crazy British knife laws backwards .

My guess is it is now legal with the alteration carried out as it doesn't stay fixed in a locked open position ,making multiple stabs more difficult .....but I dont want to get you in trouble mate so check on there to be sure.

The law has ruined my switchblade collecting and our knife laws are a joke when you can buy a 12 inch kitchen knife from any tesco,aldi Asda etc no trouble ,but cant collect anthing bigger than a nailfile ,but don't want to get started on a subject that winds me up

Good to meet you here anyway ,let me know what you find out .

Hi gravknife
Nice to see I’m not the only brit who sees the flaws in our legal system.
I’d give anything to be able to add switchblades and balisongs to my collection but that would instantly make me a knife wielding serial killer with a thirst for blood.

I can defo see the logic we follow as per its no longer a lock knife or fixed blade but the problem is we seem to know more about the uk knife law than most officers out there.

Stay tuned and I’ll post any updates I receive

Cheers

Edcuk

So it looks like British blades forum has been closed down due to health issues of the owner.

Best wishes and I hope you beat whatever it is

Please be careful.

I’m in north west,
Luckily the majority of mine are all uk legal with the exception of one or two.
Hopefully a quick call the the local police force should clarify things saying that I get an officer who’s got half a clue
