Who carries a knife in their back pack ?
I’m more likely to do time for what my knife cuts than for the knife to be honest.
In all seriousness, the biggest blade I’ve ever carried was a bone handled sheath knife when I was 13/14 and used to go bivvying with my mates in the countryside.
We’d find a decent rock outcrop and build out from it with branches and thatch with bracken, make a fire and cook veg scrumped from the village gardens.
If challenged whilst scrumping we didn’t draw our ‘blades’, we just legged it.Posted 7 years agokimbersSubscriber
whilst on a scout night hike many years back we heard a car skidding and crashing
off to investigate we emerged from some bushes onto a road to find 2 coppers
assuming we had run from the car they searched us
we all had knives on us of some form once they had seen our scarves and scout warrant books they just took our names and let us on our way they never even mentioned the knives it wasnt till we told our group leader later that he pointed out we could have got into trouble for the knives
(wasnt the dumbest thing we did that night -dared each other to walk accross a frozen canal, fortunately the ice was even thicker than us)Posted 7 years agonedrapierSubscriber
I’ve got an 11″ kukri that my girlfriend brought back for me from Nepal.
It’s a beautiful thing, very nice to handle, sharp enough to carve meat and heavy enough to chop wood.
I probably wouldn’t stand a chance of arguing in court that I had a legitimate use for it, despite it being a useful hybrid of a hand axe, a machete and a carving knife.
Granted, they’re very deadly in the hands of someone who wants them to be, but they’re also used as household tools all over nepal. You could say the same about a 4lb lump hammer.
Shame. It’s come in handy lots of times, I’d take it with me much more often if I wasn’t so likely to get banged up for it.Posted 7 years agoMacavityMember
