In the UK it's illegal to carry a knife with a locking mechanism (without a reason) which is extremely irritating . What you are allowed to carry is a non - locking or slipjoint knife with a blade of less than 3 inches. I'm looking for a new knife and need some recommendations which will be legal to carry every day, I'm more inclined to custom and gentleman's folders rather than anything tactical. I'm wanting something quite special as i only like to have a few well-made knives rather than plenty of mediocre ones. Any help would be appreciated.
