UK Knife Law

The following is our take on the Knife laws of the UK, and we need to stress that we are NOT legal experts. Each person will need to make their own judgment based on the specific situation. If in doubt - ask somebody who can give you clear legal advice!

UK knife law allows you to carry non-locking, folding pocket knives with a blade length up to 3 inches (7.62 cm) without any need for a valid reason.

With fixed blade knives or locking folders, you will need a good reason for carrying one. These would include:-

* Going to or from a place of work

* Theatrical, TV, or re-enactment purposes

* Religious or cultural purposes (such as the Sikh Kirpan, or the Highlanders Sgian Dubh)

* Educational purposes

If you are camping and practising your bushcraft skills on private land where you have permission to be, and you are using the knife in a safe manner, it can be reasonably argued that you have good reason.

Use common sense. If you are popping into the local Spar for the tea bags you forgot, make sure you have stashed the knife at the bottom of your pack. Don't have it in a jacket pocket or worse, on the belt. Even at the bottom of a backpack it is not strictly complying with the law regarding public places, but it will be much easier to claim good reason in this situation.

If you happen to be searched in a public place and you are carrying a knife in your pack, be friendly, and fully co-operative. You will have to demonstrate good reason for having a knife on your person and this will depend initially on the interpretation of the individual officer. A search is lawful if they have reasonable grounds to suspect you are carrying a weapon.

British police are some of the best in the world, and this is said with personal experience of similar situations of relying on an officers common sense. Hikers, campers and bushcrafters are not the targets of UK knife laws, and the police know that. They will however, almost always react negatively to a barrack-room lawyer! Your attitude will go a long way to convincing them you present no threat to the public, and of your genuine reason for carrying a knife in the first place.

Be aware of your environment, and the people who are also interracting with it at the same time as you are. Think through various scenarios as you would in planning the trip itself. Do you need the Lars Fält fixed blade for this particular trip, or will the Slip Joint folder be sufficient? How are you getting to the bit of land you have persmission to use - on the bus? By train? Your own car? Will anybody else be in the vicinity of your camp that may feel threatened if they see a knife? Dog walkers, cyclists, or families on a walk? Will you carry enough provisions for the trip so that you don't have to go into a shop? What's the likelihood of being searched en route? Does a backpack on a London high street present a greater possibility of being searched than a village in the Lake District?

Asking yourself these questions and others will help you understand the thinking behind the law. Please read all you can on the subject. Like anything, knowledge makes us less fearful.

And finally - DON'T WORRY! Remember, there are many, many fisherman, hunters, campers, and bushcrafters who use knives every day in the UK, and enjoy the outdoors, without an issue.
