Knife Seized by Customs (UK)

    Basically, the only restriction in the UK on the length of fixed blade knives is on curved swords- those over 19.7" (50cm) blade are banned. An exception is provided to swords handforged using traditional methods- this allows genuine collectors to buy proper samurai swords etc.

    Any fixed blade knives other than swords, whether straight or curved, have no legal length restriction at all. Also, straight bladed swords are not restricted at all.
