and my SAK champ never leaves my side; thanks bill. In the UK it's the best all round knife. I don't understand why everyone doesn't carry one. But then this site would be a bit bigger if everyoen thought like us...

+1 on the swisschamp, I too carry it in addition to any other knives/multi-tools I strap on for the day....been carring one since 9th grade high school, 25+ years, minus the last4-5 years when I carried only a multi-tool because I lost it in a move and got too lazy to replace it. Got another one this christmas and never realized how much I trully missed it.

I suggested the Mora because I thought you would have to leave it here.

The reality is; I might as well. I've no use for it in the UK where I can't light fires or cut wood. It all belongs to someone. So thanks for the advice.

Legally, locking folders are no worse than fixed-blade knives. You can carry either in a public place if you have a good reason, and you can have either in private places without needing the reason.

Quote:
As a side note, if its not illegal to own a locking blade, just carry it, another option could be to just ship it to your house prior to flying home.
It's not illegal to carry it if you have a good reason, any bringing it home after a trip abroad would be a good reason. So you don't need to ship it.

Let me guess: you're wife bought you one? that is what happened to me. I lost mine I'd had for 14 years in a november, so she got me one for christmas, as she could see I'd be lost without one.

She actually had her mom get it for me, that way she/we could spoil our nephew and neices and her mom didn't have to guess as what to get me. Smart, conniving, and absolutely wonderful. She loves her little boy scout, even as she thinks I'm outta my mind half the times.
