No wonder TSA keeps stealing my Opinel garden knife from my luggage…

…they’re just trying to prevent me from breaking the law in the UK.

Opinel

Which says…

It is illegal to:

  • sell a knife of any kind (including cutlery and kitchen knives) to anyone under 18
  • carry a knife in public without good reason – unless it’s a knife with a folding blade 3 inches long (7.62 cm) or less, eg a Swiss Army knife
  • carry, buy or sell any type of banned knife (the list of banned knives is below)
  • use any knife in a threatening way (even a legal knife, such as a Swiss Army knife)

Lock knives (knives with blades that can be locked when unfolded) are not folding knives, and are illegal to carry in public.

The maximum penalty for an adult carrying a knife is 4 years in prison and a fine of £5,000.

    Why do you have a “garden knive” in your luggage?

    Kate, having an Opinel knife in your pocket comes in handy for an incredible number of tasks. My grand-father always had one and my partner still does too!
