Found this browsing reddit. I hope this is a joke, but it made my night and gave me quite a laugh

Everyone forgets the historical picture in the world in regards to weapon control.


In most of the pre 1600 time frame, you couldn't OWN a knife over a specific length unless you were of a certain economic class.

And in England, after the normal Conquest, SAXONS were given sword control by not allowing them to own a sword with a point. They were restricted to flat tips on swords to pose less threat to normal knights as they pillaged the saxon natives on tax day

Brits been into knife control for a while now from what I've seen. They keep taking "weapons" from the law abiding and crime keeps rising. No one can figure out why...

... like we needed more proof leftism is a mental disorder... nothing they do works but they still keep doing it.

Captain Hornblower's bosun would break the point off your clasp knife to reduce crime aboard ship in the Royal Navy whilst blockading Napoleon's navy, too. Knife control is nothing new to the English.

You could still stab with one of those, as well as slash. A stab with one would probably result in a wicked wound, similar to what a wadcutter does in crushing flesh upon entry.

It would be the same as a normal knife/sword but simply harder to do.

The next step in "common sense" U.K. Knife Control has to be anti-slash and cut knives with a blunt "safety edge

It's kinda pathetic considering if you really want to do damage use a hammer, would do way better vs stab vests anyway

Next will be knives that resemble potato peelers with a safety edge

Is there a length limit on pointed sticks?
Do you need a permit for a pitchfork?

I expected to see a rail spike. I don’t believe it’s a joke; England, what a progressive country.

I think that I could do some damage.

With my blunt ended knife. Surely it will sever a limb fairly easily.

I happen to have a WWII German Red Cross Hewer which had a squared off end to get around the Treaty of Versailles.
