You and the Law
• Every product for sale from BAC is entirely legal to sell and to own in the UK
• When carrying or using a knife, there are a few simple laws which may apply to you that you should be aware of :-
1.You can carry a small folding (non locking) pocket knife with a cutting edge of less than 3” in any place in the UK that doesn’t have specific restrictions against pointed instruments e.g. airports
2. If you need to use a locking knife for added safety, or a fixed bladed knife then you may be required to give ‘good reason’ for carrying it if asked to do so by a Police Officer. Good reason may include, pursuit of a leisure activity e.g. fishing, camping, hunting, or as a tool of work or trade e.g. joiner, plumber or delivery driver
• Carry and use your knife responsibly. A knife is a tool and an everyday object that should not be used irresponsibly.
