    Tbh I'd have to check the Act specifically to be sure, but I'm pretty sure the subject is a very grey area and open to interpretation. I seem to recall reference being made to a locking mechansim being required to be classed as a lock knife, which may include that handy lever despite not technically locking the blade in place.

    Wave edition Delica. Great knife. If you want a bottle opener, I can't stress enough how useful a leatherman or victorinox on your person at all times can be. The wave works, sure, but my Leatherman has more than just a bottle opener and I find uses for it daily.

    this annoys the **** out of me.

    my theory is that american retailers can order larger numbers of knives because of the larger population over there. that should make them cheaper.

    Questions like how much you want to spend and what you want to use it for might help.

    Oh and there is a thread.
    thanks. I'll use it for everyday use. My budget is less than 100 bucks.

    Hey, look at that, I have moderator powers in here. Consequently, I'll be merging your thread with the one IIF linked to in the post above yours shortly. This is standard site policy, nothing personal.

    Yeah, the wave feature actually works as a crappy bottle opener.
    I found the delica's wave feature to work better than my emerson :S

    I've been carrying a Microtech SOCOM Elite for about 6 years.
    Great knife. Seems to hold a nice edge.
    Comfortable in my pocket or waistband.

    $100 budget?

    http://www.amazon.com/Charge-Aluminu...uct/B002TM76K4

    Leatherman Charge AL. Tons of tools, multiple blades with the primary made of 154cm steel (which is one of the market's top steels), all blades lock in place, plus it comes with a pocket clip that is removable and a holster so you can choose your carry method. If you're looking for a knife for a defensive option, my personal opinion is that you're buying the wrong tool for the job with any folding blade, so I'd rather have a good blade for utility tasks and nothing has more utility than a leatherman IMO.

    YMMV, as always.

    If a blade itself is all you need, I also highly recommend the Spyderco Native and the Delica line for anybody on a budget.

    I think you could get away with it as it's not a mechanical lock. I didn't catch how long the blade was, if it was mentioned, if it was under 3" it should be fine. It's an interesting knife, I don't really trust non locking folding blades either but it looked good even if a bit unwieldly becouse of the tang, as the guy said.

    I think you're right about the grey area, a lot depends on context of where you are, what you're doing etc.

    Apparently, after a quick google, the locking mechansim is not mentioned in the legislation, but was interpreted in case law. Given the circumstances it is unlikely that the handle/lever would amount to a locking blade.

    However, according to wikipedia, special provision is made for most knife offences with the defence of 'good reason'. So in theory, you could breach the 3" rule or the locking blade rule as long as you have a good and immediate reason for carrying the blade.

    I've got access to Westlaw, which is an online legislation/caselaw library so I'm going to check this out properly later.
