Brits talking kitchen knife confiscation

| April 22, 2023

Remember the term “loophole”?  The left tries to use it quite a bit around gun confiscation  control discussions – the “gun show” loophole, the “background check” loophole, the “private sales” loophole – any thing they see as insufficiently under their control, they call a loophole. When folks on the other side of the fence object to how they phrase their new laws and cite ‘potential for abuse’ the left poo-poos the notion with “no one is actually TALKING about doing that” (cue Beto, Swallowswell  et al, who DO talk like that.) Well, the Brits have already made handguns essentially illegal, and famously have cracked down on even little Swiss Army knives. Now:

Police will get powers to seize kitchen knives from homes if they suspect they will be used in crimes under plans to crackdown on dangerous weapons.

Ministers are to consult on proposals for police to have extra powers to “seize, retain and destroy bladed articles” held in private even if the knives are not on the Home Office’s banned list of weapons.

It is one of a raft of measures to close loopholes and toughen sentences for the sale, importation and possession of knives after a 11 per cent increase in knife offences to more than 50,000 last year.

Supposedly this targets machetes, ‘zombie knives’ (wtf is that?) but the criteria are incredibly vague:

“We consider it a proportionate response for the police, where they are in private property lawfully, to seize, retain and eventually destroy bladed articles if they have good reason to believe they will be used in crime,” said the consultation.

Ministers said it was designed to cover dangerous weapons like ceremonial swords, but it will also apply to any knives police suspect could be used in a crime.

And if it happens in the UK today, the US left will push for it tomorrow.  Better not tick off the local bobby… trying to cut a steak with a fork or a spoon ain’t easy.

Are straight razors legal or only if a licensed barber?


The only thing legal to carry at all is a folding knife with a blade under 3″ that doesn’t lock. You can have most knives and razors at home.

Police services are kind of like the TSA. They monitor self defense internet forums and if they hear about something not yet banned that might be a useful weapon they tend to ban it.

Have 3 straight razors all stainless I was advised back in around 1970 to use and now its back to the non SS razors. Have 10 mugs and 9 silver tip badger brushes along with 1 best badger brush which works great then 9 pure badger lined up on the shelf behind the silver tips and 2 more badgers I didn’t like, I put in the cabinet. Using Old Murker double edge safety razornow Bought another razor a couple of weeks ago and didn’t like it and have two others that aren’t working right


Stick, fist and gravity control will be next there.


“When knives are outlawed, only outlaws will have knives,” English criminals will then carry screwdrivers, sharpened putty knives, homemade shanks, etc. The Nazis have finally conquered England from within.


The Uk population will just resemble a prison yard with homemade weapons.


Suppose they’d frown on the 18 inch spike concealed in my walkin’ stick.


Those are illegal in California too. If it is 130 years old or older you can have it in the UK.


There’s a benchmark- the mind boggles. Rhetorical question, what possible difference is there in getting cut with an older blade, never mind.


They’d probably outlaw my walking stick, even with no blade. Part of my EDC.


Take away quote from their site (bold added for emphasis):

It’s incredibly durable, and is easy to clean with a little soap and water.

Fancy that…

I have the same one. Can definitely beat someone to sleep with this thing.


At the current rate of food production facilities destruction, you won’t need a knife anyhow. You can spread bug paste with a spoon.

Jim Bowie sez…Molon Labe, mofos.


At a time like this, you just have to wonder…. What would Mike Dundee do?

You don’t need a big knife to cut up the bugs the elitists want us all to eat so no big deal.


The move has been underway in the USofA for some time. Trying to get my knives is gonna prove difficult – this ol’ Texas boy includes several types in his EDC.
They do stay outside when I’m in the prisons, but they’re right back in my pocket (with my other accoutrements) when I’m off duty.

I’m wondering about the demographics:
Who commits the most knife offenses?
Dusky skinned imports from certain benighted countries?
Versus who will have the most confiscations?
Pale skinned multi-generation natives?

Ahh, the scary “cut your meat” loophole. How many must die by choking on huge chunks of meat because of this shortsighted decision?

We must close the garage sale old hickory loophole. 🙄 


“trying to cut a steak with a fork or a spoon ain’t easy.”

Hahaha! You think that they’re going to be eating steak? That’s soon to be a thing of the past, as soon as “They” are able to get everyone to accept the protein possibilities of bugs and seaweed!


Will safes for knifes be required in the future.

How far Britain has fallen over the years.


What about the ghost knives?

I wonder if they will ban butter knives which are better to use than nothing. Can’t wait for the silverware Brit kitchen LEO’s to say Call Blimey love a duck, fork over all your forks befork it’s to late and we have to run in to court and you can fork over a couple of pounds for a fork fine or bail moola shmoola.The fork owner can say to the Judge, Please forkive me fork my disabaying the fork law. And buy the way, fork you.


Won’t be long.. a fork is just an assault knife, with 4 blades…


Brits have become such pussies.


I can remember making sarcastic (and hopefully humorous) comments about the Brits’ efforts to control knives a few years ago when they had a few gory incidents and started regulating knives. I think it may be time for me to retire. Maybe to some isolated ultra-conservative area where the media has no access; “no news is good news”. The aging process is depressing enough without this BS.

I have a sneaking suspicion some idiot will ‘give her the keys’ and that retard is going to kill a lot of people.

Lets hope she plays in traffic morer oftener.

What kind of perv you must be to be a Gretaphile. 😝 


I didn’t know Lesbian pedophiles were into sex dolls.


A British guest, scowling at a typical steak knife, asked me “Why do you Yanks need such large knives for food?”

“We are free, and don’t self-geld.”
