Hi,. It has stag handles with 7 functions and measures 11-1/2" open. The pictures pretty well tell you all about this knife..  It probably had a sheath of some sort as it is one massive and heavy knife. All comments welcome to my email address which is   pithole@zoominternet.net  I messed up on photos.

I don't believe that is the case Jan. My understanding is that you will not be able to buy from a dealer who is going to post a knife to you. So it will entail collecting the knife in person so that the dealer can check if you are under 18. I guess you would be able to buy a knife online provided that you turn up to take delivery.

I could be wrong as "consultation" begins this Autumn I believe.

The way knives are viewed here by most people, as weapons, means that I don't hold out much hope.

I thought they were only going to stop internet purchases meaning companies could do catalogs at least??

Malcolm, you are right !

Will it stop people stabbing each other with cheap kitchen knives bought from Tesco.

I think not.

The British State is proposing to only allow knife sales via retail outlets face to face. This will probably eliminate what's left of the craft made Sheffield cutlery industry and leave it in the hands of mass produced imports. Small craft makers will never have the chains of retailers necessary to continue and thus another British industry will go down the pan. Our politicians are pillocks - this is a Northern term of endearment and not in any way and not in any way a derogatory statement - we love them all,

You know I think I like creating the typography as much as I like the Sheffield made knives

The wood is very hard. It's a day out for us going round architectural salvage yards in London. Mind you it makes for an interesting time carrying planks on the Underground during the rush hour. Many thanks. Malcolm

Malcolm,

That is an intensely beautiful oak!

Comment by John Bamford on July 13, 2017 at 10:04

Beautiful looking wood Malcolm.

The number of skilled knife makers in Sheffield is decreasing all the time. We have finished a Bowie with 15th century oak grips. Planks from an old Yorkshire farmhouse from around the time European explorers were discovering America.

The oak has a beautiful harmony of tones which make it difficult to photograph.
