    Scout badges

    There are some really good ideas here, I do like the idea of planning for a trip, one of badges includes creating a meal plan for 24 hours and making a meal. I will defiantly be using some, if not all of these ideas in the coming weeks. And to answer of the questions, I’m a scout leader for...

    Scout badges

    As a scout leader things have become a little harder to run Monday evenings with my troop, and this for me thinking about how best to work further badge work with the scouts. The Scout movement have put a number of things together, one being Badges At Home, which is really good, however I was...

    As also a scout leader we need to get our virtual heads together. I’ll create a thread in the morning to help anyone else (including me) come up with badge ideas.

    Snugpak Blanket

    My lad was gifted one of these by Fraser (Costal Survival), he uses it all the time from scout camps to hammocking at the moot, however I’m after something a little bigger. I’m worried that the large will be too big, but for about £12 more it gives more coverage. The boss said to just get the...

    Snugpak Blanket

    I do like the idea of a down filled one, but would be worried about getting it wet. I have a number of down clothing items, and I’m very careful not to get them wet. It’s also a price issue, for having something that’s just to be thrown in the landrover when in use, and then stuck in the washer...

    Thanks John, I read the review you did for them, and they do look very good. I just need to justify it to myself.

    Measuring 3 inches (non-locking); law and practice?

    The best thing to do it get what ever knife you want, walk up to a police officer, tell them you have a knife in your pocket and you want them to check it. You’ll either be in brother, or you won’t. Good luck.

    Measuring 3 inches (non-locking); law and practice?

    If a folding pocket knife was able to be opened by gravity of centrifugal force, it would be classed as a gravity knife, irrespective of the blade length. Hence why there is a spring to hold it closed, like a Swiss Army knife.

    Measuring 3 inches (non-locking); law and practice?

    To answer your point about the spring, by having this spring, it prevents the blade from opening in the same way a gravity knife opens. If you could open the blade with a simple flick of the wrist, the knife would fall under the offensive weapons act. a) any knife which has a blade which opens...

If you want to discuss other items which may well be classed as offensive weapons, please look to starting a new thread, however please keep them in line with the purpose of the forum, which...
