Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! Evening everyone. I'm sorry I only usually frequent the Traditional forum. I was going to post this in the Law Forum but I'm posting this here as I think it's more likely to reach the people it concerns. Mods: my apologies if this isn't in the right place; please move if this is inappropriate. This is for the British members of Bladeforums. Last October the UK government held a public consultation on a proposal to alter the Offensive Weapons legislation for England and Wales. This encompassed Knives and other bladed articles, corrosive substances and certain firearms. I believe one of our members (Chui-888?) highlighted this at the time. The consultation ended in December and since then the UK government has been considering it's response in regards to what legislation would be introduced. https://assets.publishing.service.g.../717673/SUMMARY_OF_CONSULTATION_RESPONSES.pdf I've been occasionally going back to the UK government website to check. I'm sat here with a beer and was about to go to bed when I thought I'd check again. Now unfortunately I've given up watching and reading UK based news media, so this may not be a surprise to some but it was to me. Not only has the UK government responded, but it has actually already passed the legislation and introduced further restrictions. https://www.gov.uk/government/news/...nsive-weapons-bill-to-tackle-serious-violence The actual legislation. https://publications.parliament.uk/pa/bills/cbill/2017-2019/0232/18232.pdf Essentially, and of most interest to us is the ban on the delivery of knives (which have been purchased online) to residential addresses. I've only quickly scan read the document but it mentions delivery to 'lockers'. I'm not sure how this will work in practice so I'm going to have to investigate this further. I'm sure one of the major online knife retailers (perhaps Heinnie?) will have details on their website. Secondly, the ban on "Zombie knives". Now I'm a traditional user so I'm only vaguely aware of what a zombie knife is. But if you read the legislation the legal definition of a zombie knife is quite vague. In theory it could mean ANY FIXED BLADE KNIFE. I'm not saying that's the case but you will all be aware of how the UK police operate, and how they interpret legislation in regards to offensive weapons. Also I'm not sure when this new legislation actually comes into force, but I'm assuming soon if it's not already effective. Please pass this on to any British knife owners you know. And my apologies if this has already been raised. Thanks. -David.
