The Law in Brief


It is illegal to
- sell a bladed product to anyone under 18 years old

- have a knife delivered to anybody under the age of 18 years old

- carry a knife with a blade over 3 inches long in public without good reason, such as when travelling to/from work where a knife is required, for recreational use included fishing or sailing, taking knives to a gallery/museum to be exhibited, for use in theatre, film, television, historical re-enactment or for religious purposes.

- carry, buy or sell any type of banned knife (including ‘flick knives’ and ‘gravity knives’)

- use any knife in a threatening way (even a legal knife, such as a Swiss Army knife).

Children are permitted to use knives appropriately (such as a safety knife when sailing) under adult supervision.


A court will decide if you have good reason to carry a knife if charged with carrying it illegally.

The maximum penalty for an adult carrying a knife without good reason is 4 years in prison and an unlimited fine.
