    New legal knife

    Due to the ever tougher knife laws, I've designed a knife that will comply with all future knife legislation. the specs are:

    Handle length 4 inches
    Handle material plastic
    blade length 0 inches
    blade thickness 0 inches
    blade material: A.I.R, composition 78% N, 21% O, 0.1% CO2
    Country of origin UK
    Estimated cost: £2
    Avialability: Now

    I am shocked that anyone would market such a blatantly offensive weapon, as it is clearly a baton.
    I also note that the blade composition contains a considerable quantity of oxygen which is a fire hazard.

    Surely a knife with an invisible non metallic blade designed to foil detection would be classed as a stealth knife and therefore automatically ilegal anyway!

    How much extra would you charge for the wooden handle variant?

    I notice the blade cannot be closed. It is also of zero thickness therefore infinitely sharp. This does not bode well....

    Well spotted. It's a fixed blade and therefore not legal!

    BUT, because the blade is invisible, and could not cut anything, you could be charged with wasting the court's time, and therefore... Contempt of Court ( Assisted by a Monty Python Attitude!)

    Aha...a loophole...are invisible knives legal then? Or only so if they cannot cut anything?....eg blunt invisible knives?

    What about blunt non-invisible knives?

    Re: New legal knife

    Making the handle of A.I.R as well could give rise to a classic and particularly clever collectible variant. Postage costs would be very favourable too.
    But it could be hard to find...

    Good point - is my butter knife illegal to carry in the street?

    Of course, if "victims" were invisible, could a crime have even been committed????!!!

    Re: New legal knife

    I like the concept, and think it would look good with a woodland camoflage pattern handle.

    However I am not sure of the practicalities of finding it if placed down in the woods. I suppose a lanyard attachment would help - is this available?

    Re: New legal knife

    How dense is this air ?

    When air is highly compressed (say at the leading edge of a blast front), it's dense enough to knock down buildings. Add a material that strong to an infinately fine edge and I forsee a disaster in the making
