Haha. Nope I'm still here...
Just don't know what to say to be honest
I now keep my blades in the bag when I cross
I would like to be able to carry whatever across the road, but can understand how that may be seen by the public/police. I'd rather be safe from now on haha. (Although I don't really agree with many knife laws).
As for knife:
Usually a Wood Jewel Pukko with either a Mora Hunter or companion.
Then depending on what I am doing I might take a Gransfors Bruks Hand Hatchet and a Bacho 24 inch bow saw.
If the ham sandwich was frozen he could have someones eye out!.....does a frozen lettuce leaf count as a bladed article?
Do we have to keep going round in circles?
Yes we've established he's fine having it on his belt but if seen he will have to explain why its there, whether its by a copper of a member of Joe public doing his civic duty and reporting him. , if it's in a bag Joe public won't notice him nor will the Police have cause to stop him or legitimate reason to search him.
So yes you can John Wayne it if you think it looks cool and you want to pretend your some wild adventurer but be prepared to be stopped. If you want to pass in peace and get to your destination without hassle in your bag is the way to go.
Being sarcastic about sensible advice is not cleaver or cool but from past reading its clear you know that and just like the attention
I agree theres no need to keep repeating the same advice mate. But theres also no need to belittle people wearing a knife on their belt. I do it every day as most people would wear a watch
For me the novelty of carrying a knife wore off before puberty kicked in
Plus i don't need a knife to feel like john wayne
I think you've answered your own question. Kevlar works wonderfully against cuts but nothing short of metal plate or a Kevlar plate several inches thick works against punctures (and even that wouldn't be guaranteed) Unfortunately though, the Kevlar gloves are the best practical item for now.
Oh I dunno, there is always this, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K8hCjtMp8dU
if it was good enough for the knights of old, it is good enough for you.
Stainless steel mesh gloves are commonplace for butchers and in fish cleaning plants.
They come as a full 5-finger glove and also a 2+thumb "shortie". You get what you pay for.
No, they are not puncture-proof. Sure are cut proof and very easily washed and bleached.
Great grip on wet raw meat.
If I got the chance again for fish, 2+T for my left/knife hand and a full 5 for my right/fish hand.
The only sensible thing you've written since Feb 2016 and I tried that. I just wish your posts weren't quoted by others...,
Actually, sorta. I already conceded "plate metal" which is exactly what those gauntlets are made of. That said, they're not really practical to carry and certainly not small and pliable enough to wear searching a suspects pockets.
I have no fight with anyone who chooses to carry their blade on belt if they have good reason, just those who thing good reason and unquestionable right are the same thing and think offering that as advice is a good thing. It is not any more that it would be telling an airsofter or modern reenactor that travelling to sight carrying a replica pistol slung on their belt is.
Anyway I'm done with this do what you want just please don't start any I've been nicked what should I do threads.
Janne on the other hand can do what he wants I've taken his advice
Or in fact are so frequent that they dominate many many threads
I've been here 10 years and he's hiting almost as many posts in 18 months....
Yep, and everything is bigger better harder faster........ The one that made me laugh out loud was poor Chris got a splinter in his toe and a pair of tweezers to get it out....
Janne got a 4 x 2 on the head, refused pain relief and had 17 stitches...........outstanding
