    I just did some weeding out from my collection also. Those in this first pass were admittedly not such great blades...;) . I ended up gifting to a bunch of folk who I know at my local Peet's coffee shop -- most are not knife folks but all who accepted a blade seem pretty happy!

    The next round will be more challenging for me to deal with I'm sure! :(

    L'chaim!

    Have a Spyderco Delica in M390 steel coming, never had a chance to work with that type of metal.

    Anyone have any experiences with it? what does it compare to?

    Gah!! I wanted one of those so bad. I looked on the site when they went on sale and only saw a sold out sign.

    Congrats man, it's a good looking knife!

    Careful there, Reidar. That last one is also increasingly illegal ;-)

    No offense, but I honestly see no practical use for the third. Not even to play around with. Hasn’t got enough fiddle factor, like a butterfly. For me, a knife is a tool or maybe a toy at best. But to each their own.

    Exact opposite in several US states with the knife being moved from illegal to legal.

    I'm not sure if a breakdown of the Norwegian knife laws serves any purpose on an international forum, but to allow some insight in our tribulations you should know this; specific knife types can and have been banned, i.e. illegal to own and use, at the whim of police officials or politicians, without any facts or statistics to support that such measures are required or would resolve any real problem. These bans are usually applied without any grandfathering or buy back programs.
    Further, there is a sack clause deeming any object illegal if it is suited to do bodily harm (read: looks scary) AND does not serve any apparent legal purpose (self defense is illegal).
    A dagger is easily distinguished as illegal, as it is both specifically illegal and quite certainly illegal under the sack clause. Not all objects are that easily distinguished though, and quite a few cases end up in court to determine if an object is illegal or not.
    Note that collectors can get permission to own objects deemed illegal under the "knife law", but my understanding is that processing of such applications are as whimsical and subjective as the laws themselves.
    Now, that was some insight into the troubles of ownership. Use and carry is even worse. The whole subject is really a grey area, and boils down to one simple rule of thumb; stay out of trouble. If a police officer finds a knife (or any other object suited to do bodily harm) on your person (that includes purse, backpack or what have you) or within reach inside a vehicle, it is really at his discretion if you are breaking the law or not.
    If found guilty of such charges, you can face quite serious consequences.

    Just added a Spydiechef, it joins my other smaller ti slabbed EDC blades and fits in quite nicely, very much like it!

    Ragnar and other Vikings would be shaking their heads in disbelief! How does one even write a law proclaiming self defense an illegal purpose? In the hands of a trained practitioner, even a broomstick would thence be illegal!

    L'chaim!
