Thanks Russ for the link to the Metropolitan Police site -- very informative.

It is illegal to ... carry a knife in public without good reason - unless itís a knife with a folding blade 3 inches long (7.62 cm) or less, e.g. a Swiss Army knife (a "lock knife" does not come into the category of "folding pocket knife" because it is not immediately foldable at all times) ...


Redacted.

Initially the law allowed locking blades under 3 inches long.

But it was a court case that a prosecuting lawyer convinced a judge that effectively a locking blade is equivalent to a fixed blade. So that set the legal precedence.
