England Bans All Guns - Here Are The UK Knife Ownership Laws And Regulations - Yes - We're Serious!

Selling, buying and carrying knives

The maximum penalty for an adult carrying a knife is 4 years in prison and an unlimited fine. You’ll get a prison sentence if you’re convicted of carrying a knife more than once.

Basic laws on knives.

It is illegal to:

sell a knife to anyone under 18 (16 to 18 year olds in Scotland can buy cutlery and kitchen knives)

unless it’s a knife with a folding blade 3 inches long (7.62cm) or less

carry a knife in public without good reason - unless it’s a knife with a folding blade 3 inches long (7.62cm) or less

carry, buy or sell any type of banned knife

use any knife in a threatening way (even a legal knife)

Lock knives are not classed as folding knives and are illegal to carry in public without good reason.

Lock knives: have blades that can be locked and refolded only by pressing a button
can include multi-tool knives - tools that also contain other devices such as a screwdriver or can opener

Banned knives and weapons

It is illegal to bring into the UK, sell, hire, lend or give anyone the following:

butterfly knives (also known as ‘balisongs’) - a blade hidden inside a handle that splits in the middle

disguised knives - a blade or sharp point hidden inside what looks like everyday objects such as a buckle, phone, brush or lipstick

flick knives (also known as ‘switchblades’ or ‘automatic knives’) - a blade hidden inside a handle which shoots out when a button is pressed

gravity knives

stealth knives - a knife or spike not made from metal (except when used at home, for food or a toy)

zombie knives - a knife with a cutting edge, a serrated edge and images or words suggesting it is used for violence

swords, including samurai swords - a curved blade over 50cm (with some exceptions, such as

antiques and swords made to traditional methods before 1954)

sword-sticks - a hollow walking stick or cane containing a blade

push daggers

blowpipes (‘blow gun’)

telescopic truncheons - extend automatically by pressing button or spring in the handle

batons - straight, side-handled or friction-lock truncheons

hollow kubotans - a cylinder-shaped keychain holding spikes

shurikens (also known as ‘shaken’, ‘death stars’ or ‘throwing stars’)

kusari-gama - a sickle attached to a rope, cord or wire

kyoketsu-shoge - a hook-knife attached to a rope, cord or wire

kusari (or ‘manrikigusari’) - a weight attached to a rope, cord, wire

hand or foot-claws

knuckledusters

Contact your local police to check if a knife or weapon is illegal.

Good reasons for carrying a knife or weapon

Examples of good reasons to carry a knife or weapon in public can include:

taking knives you use at work to and from work

taking it to a gallery or museum to be exhibited

if it’ll be used for theatre, film, television, historical reenactment or religious purposes, for example the kirpan some Sikhs carry

if it’ll be used in a demonstration or to teach someone how to use it

A court will decide if you’ve got a good reason to carry a knife or a weapon if you’re charged with carrying it illegally.
