A question of knife legality in Europe

7261 Views 11 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  arrexian
Me and my brother will be backpacking in Europe for a month and well be in the following countries: Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Belgium, France, and Switzerland. My question is, does anyone know the legality of carrying a folding knife for purposes of self defense? Is there a size limit? Do any of these countries ban it outright?

I ask because we will be staying in the cheapest hostels we can find the whole time and as a result may be in some rougher neighborhoods.

Thank you for your input!

I tried a google search but came up with little :(

Where are you planning to move to? i personally am trying to find a way into the states...

i dont think moving is the answer, but yes british laws are total ****e
if enough people cared in the UK perhaps we could change some of the "protection laws"

anyway as some guy said...atm its run or die and that seems to be fine for our officials
