    I often carry a Leatherman knife in a sheath on my belt when going to and from the yacht club and have never felt it was wrong. I have one of those SAK's with a USB etc and certainly don't think anyone would stop you if you had that.

    I heard that the knife cannot be longer than 6" (blade + handle length).

    Swords-6-pic
    i have come back through customs with 6 of the above and got stopped and they asked me what its for, i told them its gifts, which they were. I kept two for myself in the house waiting for some unsuspected person to enter my home at night so i can greet them properly. I also came back with 6 khukuri's Khukuri and also got stopped by customs, the funny thing is the customs guy said these knives are good for attacking people, which really surprised me. I just said they are gifts for people and again i was let back into HK. Woohoo

    I might have failed to ask that question, since I only mentioned entering HK. The link I posted to the HK Police is good, so maybe you can pose a more correct question?

    Nice. I've always wanted a good quality khukri. I'm in the process of shopping for a katana right now. Thinking about going with an odachi too (over 5 ft long).

    Hey Jayinhongkong,

    Khukuri House - Official Khukuri/Kukri supplier to Gurkhas

    they are the official suppliers of Khukuri's to the Gurkha's in the British Army.

    Since u like the long swords, u should check out the longest Khukuri, the buff head, its used for chopping the heads of buffalo's during religious ceremony.

    Khukuri House - Buff Head (the LARGEST)

    Hi wtbhotia! I've heard of Khukuri House. I've looked at practically all the knives on their site in the last few years, but I never saw the Buff Head. I do like large blades, but I also like small ones (I just like weapons in general). That would be cool to have, but the 7.5 kg weight is fairly hefty...hehe. I think I'd go with one of their more traditional models over that behemoth of a knife, cool as it is.

    When does a knife become a sword? That Buff Head is just crazy big.

    I'd never call a khukuri a sword. A khukuri is a khukuri. I love mine, although there are others I like more!
