Basic laws on knives
It is illegal to
- sell a knife of any kind to anyone under 18 years old (16 to 18 year olds in Scotland can buy cutlery and kitchen knives)
- carry a knife in public without good reason - unless it’s a knife with a folding blade 3 inches long (7.62 cm) or less, eg a Swiss Army knife
- carry, buy or sell any type of banned knife.
- use any knife in a threatening way (even a legal knife, such as a Swiss Army knife).
Lock knives (knives with blades that can be locked when unfolded) are not folding knives, and are illegal to carry in public without good reason.
Children are permitted to use knives appropriately (such as a safety knife when sailing) under adult supervision.
Good reasons for carrying a knife
Examples of good reasons to carry a knife in public can include:
- taking knives you use at work to and from work for example as a farmer or estate manager.
- carrying knives you use for recreational purposes, such as angler, sailor or any other reasonable grounds for expecting to need a knife whilst pursuing a lawful activity.
- taking knives to a gallery or museum to be exhibited.
- the knife is going to be used for theatre, film, television, historical reenactment or religious purposes, eg the kirpan some Sikhs carry.
A court will decide if you’ve got a good reason to carry a knife if you’re charged with carrying it illegally.
The maximum penalty for an adult carrying a knife without good reason is 4 years in prison and a fine of £5,000.
