    I was talking about the lock knife not a Flick knife.

    Their not completely illegal, but they're illegal to carry outside the home so they're as good as.

    Hence the two tier comment.

    Simon linked the UK law guidence, before, I take any advice straight from that and not rely on anyone else.

    It’s not illegal to carry one outside the house.
    It’s illegal to carry one in a public place without reason.

    You are actually derailing the orrigional topic question.

    Edit ahhh I see the confusion.

    Sorry if I was unclear.

    Flick knives were banned as I understand it, at the same time as gravity knives etc.

    There was a lot of issues around them as they're essentially lock Knives with springs in. Some lock Knives that are too easy to open also get treated as gravity knives.

    Customs have really started to crack down on people importing all of these even though plain lock Knives are legal to own.

    Your original question wasnt particular well formed.

    Assisted opening knives, are legal, as are ones with thumb studs to make them easy to open one handed.

    You are confused, the knives added to the offensive weapons list were those that open when a button or device is activated with the help of a spring or gravity.

    You are still deveating from the orrigional question.

    Gravity and spring opened knives are illegal, how do you define assisted opening? Anything with a spring in will get classed as a Flick knife. Studs and spyderco holes are fine though.

    Does anyone know why I can buy a kali or escrima stick, Jo or Bo staff, nunchuck that screws into a metal baton, cosh, spring cosh/baton, tonfa, pr24, mace, club, shilleighlegh, weighted polymer walking stick, polymer base ball bat marked as a ‘crusher’ Morningstar, war hammer, and several Chinese martial arts weapons I have no idea on the names of that are blunt and designed with the sole purpose of hitting folks...
    But I can’t buy a short old school truncheon or riot baton?

    Last time I’m answering you.
    An assisted opening knife is one where you start it off with the stud or thumb hole, and it continues to open itself after a certain point.
    These are not flick knives as they do not use a button or device.

    Because theyre martial art or historical use weapons and have a valid use.

    Trunchons generally don't have this excuse.

    Your answer makes no sense
    You are deliberately derailing the thread, and trying to pick fault in any statement I make.
    You also know I’m gay

    I’m not arguing with you, and getting a ban because I feel that’s what you are aiming for.

    Didn't know you were gay, and I don't know why that matters in regards to this post.

    I was actually trying to help.

    Edit I've just reread your pm to me about bjj, I actually assumed you were female because you mentioned having a boyfriend who wanted to train too.

    So again, I didn't know you were gay, you might also be projecting a little here.

    I now know why less people use this site, it’s a bit clique.

    Not for people like me obviously.
