I have been using the fix versions of these for the last 20 years, completely bomb proof, I will be getting a few folders at some point.

Are they legal to carry in the UK?

Looks like a dangerous weapon in my opinion.

Not legal to carry without specific reason, on account of the linerlock. Given the discretionary situation in UK knife-law (anything can potentially be seen as an offensive weapon if used or threatened as such), perhaps we should refrain from making explicit assocations between these simple tools and weapons, even when the comment is such as yours, obviously a joke.

Looks good. I was after something like this and didn't fancy a fixed blade. Hopefully they'll be in stock soon

Nope. I don't want a joint that will get grubbed up with fruit or meat juices.
I see they make the same thing with a fixed blade.
I have a few from Profinox (fixed) and they are very easy to clean properly.

They look like nice little knives, especially for the family days out when we take food, it's often a loaf, cheese, salad stuff, that would work well..

I cracked and bought one of these. In general it's nicely made but the liner-lock is very stiff. Opens and locks easily, difficult to release and close though. Hopefully it will free up a bit with use.
