It would be interesting to establish just how many 'zombie' knives have been used in the current spate of stabbings. I suspect none at all. Street knives need to be 'throwaways' in case of a possible search. Also interesting is a proposed law that seems to make it worse to be stabbed with a zombie knife than a cooks knife, given the number of victims successfully stabbed over the last few years with what I am sure are perfectly ordinary looking knives.

Not even remotely. You wish to ban weapons from every home unless there is a 'bloody good reason'. There is a great deal of scope for defining a 'bloody good reason'. My definition would be a world apart from yours, I suspect, and a third person might be somewhere in-between. I can only suspect because you lack the conviction of your own words to explain exactly what you would ban and why you would ban it.

You suspect a lot of things. You have suspected two different things in your last post. I suspect you have neither the intention nor the capacity for a sincere debate and your boringly predictable efforts to goad me into a row have rather proved it.

I'm very sorry. Shootist I deleted a post (yours I think) after I edited it by mistake.

Any bladed weapons. I like blades and I have a collection including katanas, Kukri Knife, combat knives of various descriptions, and other blades and Shuriken in the process of being made.

I bet any money that it is stanley type blades being used.

While horribly effective, Stanley type blades are not readily associated with the macho and terminal nature that I suspect is possessed by the gang types who appear to be setting out to murder. My bet would be moderately prices lock knives. Whatever the case, I suspect that anyone in a street drug gang who produced a 'zombie' knife would be viewed with contempt by the gang.

A simple request asking you to justify a statement you made that if implemented would be a major change in the law of this country is goading you into a row? Only if you didn't believe what you said. But, if you can't answer then don't answer.

I can murder with a stanley blade very easily and horribly disfigure someone's face too.

I don't doubt it, but I don't think such an attack would be properly described as "A stabbing".
