    Knife laws in the Philippines

    I'll be going back to the Philippines at the end of the year, and I would like to know if there are any restrictions on folders. Last time I was there I just carried a Victorinox BSA knife, but are there restrictions on locking folders and one hand opening knives?

    Mabuhay! Depends where in the Phils you're going. You can't take knives on ferries and flights, but I managed to take an Emerson Combat Karambit and a Ka-Bar TDI on the ferry from Cebu City to Bohol. You can carry a knife into a mall if it's in your pocket--they only check your waist and bag. If you get stopped by the police, they might ask you for a bribe since it'll be considered a "deadly weapon". Certain cities in the Phils are more lenient than others.

    Being Pinoy-American, you might get away with less than I do (since I'm foreign). I've been there three times this year, and I'm going to Manila again in July.

  3. Certain legal issues are there while carrying knife . For any assistance regarding any legalities in Philippines contact http://
