According to below it's a to keep a knife in the car, I have always kept my Leatherman multi tool in the car, is the reason for keeping it in the car for a breakdown or emergency use not good enough then eg. rather have it and not need it.... than need it and not have it... trouble with some our laws is they are ambiguous so our lawyers can shaft us out of our hard earned money.





A public place is anywhere that the public has, or is permitted to
have, access to – even if the public must pay for such access. A
privately owned car or other vehicle is regarded as being a “public
place” while the vehicle is on the public highway.
It is also established that a folding knife having a pointed blade of
less than three inches in length and capable of being secured in an
open position by a locking device is not a folding pocket knife within
the meaning of S.139 of the Criminal Justice Act 1988. As such, if a
folding knife has a locking blade of any length then it will be an
offence for a person to have it in a public place without good reason
or lawful authority. This may apply to many popular branded multitools.

Yes totally daft indeed, a lot of people are not aware of the Leatherman type knife locking blade issue, you must have 'good reason' as it says, I would say having it just in case and perhaps hidden ubder your seat 'may' throw some suspicion as to your 'real' intent with it. I keep mine locked in the glove box and it is only in the car during transit from boat to home and back

Are we over thinking the 'knife carrying' bit here. ....

Surely our police force can tell the differance between us Ribnobbers and atroublesome youth with a tag round his ankle carrying a 'blade' and up to no good ? And surely those chaps would be boating in a 1976 fletcher with popping ( if running at all ) evinrude on the back and not a swanky rib ?

I actually have a very small knife on my car keys - its a pipe knife ( for cleaning your pipe - the smoking kind ) that belonged to a family member...
and mutlitool in the car, and knife attached to jacket if I'm out on the boat - however unless a knife has a corkscrew & bottle opener its useless to me

Suppose it depends on the plod, some would nick you DNA and finger print you just to tick the boxes and keep the figures nice and high on arrests for knife crime rather than use good judgement.

I think you would be unlucky to find someone similar but you never know. Also don't think he helped himself with his comments. I carry a multi tool in the car, in the tool box in the boot. My argument would be its a tool not a weapon. But I am sure it would depend what mood the officer is in and how you explain it to them.

Just for an added bit of coverage I have also disable the locking mechanism on the main blade, that way I feel I could with a reasonable level of confidence get a court onside if I had to.

reading the police forums it wasnt the knife that upset them it was

a) the police baton he had as well.

b) attitude that the police shouldnt stop him as he is white and wearing a suit.

The court obviously let him go, the police just succeed in messing him about and forcing him to miss his meeting.
