Unless your highly trained in knife fighting, and even then, it is highly advisable to avoid even attempting to use a knife for self defense purposes...your more likely to have the knife taken from you and used against you.

As JB has stated, it is illegal to carry weapons which includes knives. Highly unlikely that you are ever going to get stopped and searched, but if for some reason you ever used it against another person then you would be fucked.

There is a large distinction there. Some have commented that farmers carry Machetes, Pangas, Axes, Adzes etc, well everyone knows that. However if they are used in an attack it is different. Many news stories mention "Samurai Swords" which are nothing of the sort but are long bladed instruments with no other purpose other than slashing enemies.
Personally I am not into using blades in a fight, I am more into bludgeoning techniques. You can disable a man by bludgeoning but he will likely survive and not have life-threatening effects. So whether you have to smash this enemy's foot, knee-cap or shoulder they will likely survive. If you stab them you can cause critical damage easily and they are going to bleed like crazy all over the place, and much of it could be squirted on you. That's not a good option. 8-)
Silence, exile, and cunning.

OK...I will try and take some pics of my knives.
I have brought a lot of them over the last few years.
I have Wustof Grand Prix from Germany, Globals from Japan for cooking.
I lived 5 years in Argentina and toured the knife making city of Tandil and met a knife maker in Mar del Plata. I went fishing in Alaska and found some great knives with 420 steel and local handles with exotic caps..
I still have some great knives back in the USA from WW2, bayonets, and more.
Alas, my butter knife collection is not available for public viewing.
I grew up carrying a pocket knife.. It was really never something to whip out and defend myself with.
I think if a barang was fishing and had a knife in his pocket the local Police would be OK as opposed to a guy flashing some blade Riverside in a drunken meth rage...
I will try and load some pics...
