Seayaker BS: Illegal Swiss army knife (58* d) RE: BS: Illegal Swiss army knife 19 Apr 10


Looking at the GoXplore website you can carry a folding non lockable pocket knife with a blade less than 3 inches as long as you don't use it or intend to use it as an offensive weapon, so I don't know why this case came to court. Perhaps the Police were piqued at not being able to prosecute for drunk driving but I think they should have had to prove malicious intent to bring a case.

I always carry a Swiss Army Knife in my pocket as it is very usefull as a multi-tool.

It looks as though this guy has been a victim of the sort of tabloid driven law interpretation which does nothing to solve the problem but penalises innocent people.
