Great safety knife - Buck Flashpoint

Well I have loads of knives but wanted a knife to colour coordinate with my RIB and in the search found this great knife, not only does it have a very useful blade that locks it can also be opened and closed one handed, it has a useful type inbuilt hook which also acts s a bottle opener. The only thing that Pee's me off is that we get ripped off in the UK, check the prices in the US.

Here are some details in case anyone s interested:



US Price NEW Buck Orange FlashPoint Knife with Carabiner Clip 770ORX | eBay

P.S. it is 12 ish postage from the US for all 6 if anyone wanted to order a load for others, beware shipping doubles when you go to 7

On the thread of colour keying HERE's an opportunity for you. It'll help keep the microwave volted-up

I assume your mobile phone provider is Orange?

This may fall into the lock knife/gravity knife category, nice knife though!

''Illegal Knives''
In the UK, the main knife legislation is found in the Criminal Justice Act (CJA) 1988 however certain types of knife are banned under the Restriction of Offensive Weapons Act (ROWA) 1959, the relevant section of the latter being Section 1.

A) any knife which has a blade which opens automatically by hand pressure applied to a button, spring or other device in or attached to the handle of the knife, sometimes know as a "flick knife" or "flick gun"; or
B) any knife which has a blade which is released from the handle or sheath thereof by the force of gravity or the application of centrifugal force and which, when released, is locked in place by means of a button, spring, lever, or other device, sometimes known as a "gravity knife". "
[ROWA 1959 S 1(1)]

Section 1(2) also makes it illegal to import knives of this type, as a result it is (almost) impossible to obtain possession of such a knife without either committing or abetting an offence.


Burden of Proof
Although English law insists that it is the responsibility of the prosecution to provide evidence proving a crime has been committed an individual must provide evidence to prove that they had a bona fide reason for carrying a knife (if this is the case). Whilst this may appear to be a reversal of the usual burden of proof, technically the prosecution has already proven the case (prima facie) by establishing that a knife was being carried in a public place.

I'm fully aware of the knife laws, but as a ribber this is an essential tool against ffing lobster pots and Solent pirates so no problems at all there

I think my flares (illuminating not trousers) would do a great deal of mass damage compared to that 20" knife (well my wife thinks its 20" comparing it to other 6" objects )

This knife does NOT fall in the above shown legislation anyway, they are freely available in the UK and I bought mine in Snow & Rock, that legendary shop dealing with illegal weapons

Got to go, I'm in the tanning rooms at 1pm

Here's another for you to consider. Good knife, but unfortunately doesn't withstand salt environments without a lot of TLC (involving lots of silicone grease):
