To be banned. What a shocker - make knives that look as if they are intended for violence and criminals use them for attacks. Who would have guessed?!

Despite it already being illegal to carry them or use them in violence?

Crap and badly thought out knee jerk law.

How do you define a 'Zombie' knife?

They ARE a joke but people collect them and hang them on their walls. Each to his own. My mate has a fetish for those absurd Klingon war blades. In its own way no different from collecting swords - which are designed to be a lot more practical for killing than these things - they're just a lot more attractive and classy.

Perhaps if weapons were made prettier they wouldn't be banned.

Doesn't sound like the sharpest tool in the box does he?

Trouble is there's no actual definition that can be applied - perforated blade = zombie knife, serrations = zombie knife, don't like the look of you today sonny = zombie knife

You're nicked...

Sorry, I don't seem to have made my point too well. What I was hoping people would take away from it was that they need not be banned because they are utterly useless. Fit ONLY to hang on the wall.
