  • Is it legal to buy a woodcarving knife in the UK?
    The type of woodcarving knives that I sell are legal to own in the UK, please follow the government link below to see the list of banned knives. However, it is illegal to sell a knife to anyone under 18, unless it has a manual folding blade less than 3 inches long. Therefore all knives are only available to purchase if you are 18+. Proof of age may be requested on purchase. I reserve the right to refuse to complete any order at my sole discretion if valid ID can not be provided. In the UK you cannot carry a knife in public without good reason, unless it has a manual folding blade less than 3 inches long. The government link below sets out this law and explains when it may be permitted and when it may be a criminal offence. Please make sure that you read and understand the information before purchase. https://www.gov.uk/buying-carrying-knives
