Good to know - I see that the blade is Japanese, reassuringly Kill Bill! It's made with H1 steel, apparently a Japanese grade that is VERY resistant to corrosion and yet holds an edge well.

I was a bit surprised by the handle material - it's effectively GRP with a micropattern that gives it a high non-slip quality. You might say it was a bit cheap or plasticky - but it's light, strong and grippy.

That's not how I read the legislation. You can carry a folding pocket knife with blade length up to three inches; but you cannot carry a folding knife with blade longer than three inches, or any length fixed blade knife (and locking knives are considered fixed blade) in public without reason.

Of course, you could walk out in your kilt and persuade the beek it is your sgian-dubh.
