well the total total weapon ban area's are usually placed in places with lots of bars, clubs and stuff. Primairly in big city's. They won't throw you in prison for carring a knife, unless you have drawn it. Just a fine, if you can't afford it, than you have to pay wenn you come in holland the next time.

You Guys mean "Knife LAWS in US/UK",-as Oppossed to "Lawa",-Right?. I've corrected this More Obvious Typo, at least in my own Subtitle here! This one Really had a Way of Standing Out! I Know, -I Make my Own Typos from Time to Time Too! But "Lawa" is somehow Quite a Distance from "Laws"! Carry On with Talking about the Substance of such Laws, -Rather than the Form in which it's been Typoed! [color:"black"] [/color] [email]PC2K[/email]

hi woft, as previously mentioned by pete, in the UK, its generally taken that sub 3" non locking folders are the only lawful carry, with out a reason. however. if you do ahve a reason, ie you use a knife for your work etc then you can carry a lock knife etc. a point in case is ray mears who uses a small(4") pukko type knife. if you had that stashed at the bottom of your rucksack then i don't think that the coppers would have a problem, especially if you said that you were living off the land etc. to be fair its not that often people get stoped and searched over here. i certainly never had, but i play it safe these days, and only cary a vic huntsman. two blades, saw, scisors. does me.
oh well just my twopeneth

A bit off topic, but I used to carry an issued MOD survival knife on my webbing. I had taken it into Bosnia on my gear on the plane in the hold and nothing was said. On end of touring I packed my gear in a box as accompanied freight and had some jumped up little prick of a military policeman confiscate it and forward a report to my unit. Apparently, even though it was issued, it was illegal. What really pissed me off was my bayonet was in the same box and he never said anything.
