I have seen a genius ex MoD knifw with a curved blade - end was totally rounded and blunt, the sharp edge being cut into the smaller radius. The radius was much smaller than the diameter of (I assume a Searider or Workboat's) toobs, base don it being an MoD thing so it was physically impiossible (apart from at the extreme tip of the cone) to be able to mate the sharp bit with the toob surface.
But as it was about the size of a bread knife I suspect would also fall into a few "illegal" categories...
Curry Lockspike for me.
