Gerber Knives UK


By placing an order with gerber-store.co.uk (part of the Outdoor365 Limited group), the customer verifies that they are over 18 years of age and are aware of all laws regarding the possession or carrying of the products they are ordering. Outdoor365 Limited shall not be held liable for any infraction of laws by the purchaser.

By placing an order with us you agree to our undertaking age verification or other checks and you agree to our providing details to United Kingdom law enforcement agencies. We reserve the right to refuse completion of any order at our own discretion.

As keen outdoor enthusists we are passionate about the items that we sell and about their appropriate and safe use. Indeed we have experienced situations where the right knife or tool has prevented serious injury or worse. However knives can be dangerous if improperly handled. It is also important to know and comply with the law regarding the carrying and use of knives (Criminal Justice Act 1988 & Violent Crime Reduction Act 2006 in England and Wales).

Basic laws on knives

It is illegal to

- sell a knife of any kind to anyone under 18 years old (16 to 18 year olds in Scotland can buy cutlery and kitchen knives)

- carry a knife in public without good reason - unless it’s a knife with a folding blade 3 inches long (7.62 cm) or less, eg a Swiss Army knife

- carry, buy or sell any type of banned knife.

- use any knife in a threatening way (even a legal knife, such as a Swiss Army knife).

Lock knives (knives with blades that can be locked when unfolded) are not folding knives, and are illegal to carry in public without good reason.

Children are permitted to use knives appropriately (such as a safety knife when sailing) under adult supervision.

Good reasons for carrying a knife

Examples of good reasons to carry a knife in public can include:

- taking knives you use at work to and from work for example as a farmer or estate manager.

- carrying knives you use for recreational purposes, such as angler, sailor or any other reasonable grounds for expecting to need a knife whilst pursuing a lawful activity.

- taking knives to a gallery or museum to be exhibited.

- the knife is going to be used for theatre, film, television, historical reenactment or religious purposes, eg the kirpan some Sikhs carry.

A court will decide if you’ve got a good reason to carry a knife if you’re charged with carrying it illegally.
