    Received today, and first impressions are very good. Great ergonomics and fit and finish. A great alternative to normal UK legal slip joints.

    From what I can see, the Tac Raze has a 3.25" blade, which is too long for UK-legal carry. Am I missing something?

    TOPS state the cutting edge as 2.88 inches. This complies with UK law in that the cutting edge of a non locking folder must be sub 3 inches.

    From the 1988 Criminal justice act:
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Bladed items etc:- section 139 Offence of having article with blade or point in public place

    (3) This section applies to a folding pocketknife if the cutting edge of its blade exceeds 3 inches.

    Personally I stay away from this type of knife for UK carry. Sooner or later someone is going to be jailed for carrying one. Because it's essentially a straight razor.
