This PO individual may have conflated legality of ownership and legality of carry without reason. It sounds like he just got a bad egg. I ship knives every week and have used everyone except yodel and hermes and that's just because their delivery times are shocking. I currently use parcelforce if shipping to the US as they are USPS' carrier in the UK. The only issue I've ever had was actually as a consumer and trying to receive a Bark River knife from DLTtrading.com. It got held up in Standsted and I was told that it was a weapon. I eventually got it after a lengthy period of arguing semantics and terminology. What a ballache.But as their own details state: "Excludes knives that are banned under UK laws - see Weapons"
Which I read as it would only be a weapon if it was not a legal UK knife.
