This is one of those stupid laws that I hate!
Its classed as a 'Push Dagger' so illegal for..........I have no idea why!
I hate the reason your also not allowed to own switch blades, because your 'not supposed to be able to open a folding knife with one hand' anyone want to post the hole large enough to swallow the entire universe with that argument/statement?....

Do you know anyone in the states? Maybe they could buy it for you and then post it on.

Its faster to open a folding knife with a thumb grip then to open a butterfly knife.

why don't they just foget it, most kids raid the cutlery draw anyway, you can't stop knife crime by banning unless you want to condemn us all to spoons and folks only

Until recently Hollywood movies featured such banned weapons had their scenes cut from them. Face/Off is a good example.

I have to agree with LW, I used to own a Balisong Knife, (A.K.A. Butterfly Knife) in the 80's & I wish I still had it, it got lost 'in transit' on one of my moves, it was slower to open that all of my Lock Knives & now it is legal to buy Assisted Openers in the UK.

What did it look like? Was it the traditional full metal handle with rows of drilled holes in each side?

always wanted one of those.

Brass lock I thought most of them had a steel locking bar, I mean I've only seen brass on a rustic french one with wood inlays in the handle and the whole handle was brass anyway so it matched. I thought the full metal ones were all just steel

Allo Dave. :D
I had one similar to this with a brass lock bar years ago...

...never really liked it and still can't understand why they were banned except that they seemed to be associated with young 'gangstas' in the USA and our knife law is largely based on that of New York State.

The one I had was similar, mine has machined holed in the handle though, I have no idea what idiot came up wuth the ban on most of these knives, but I suppose it could be worse, in certain states in the U.S. you are not allowed Double Edged knives, but you can carry a gun? :S

Yeah well they are nuts anyway letting kids as young as 4 shoot and having bright coloured guns for them with holsters with cartoon characters and things on them.

this sort is what I want
