UK knife law allows you to carry non-locking pocket knives with a blade length up to 3 inches (7.62 cm) without any need for a valid reason. I would imagine the pocket knives carried in the books would meet this criterion. You are allowed to carry a knife which exceeds these guidelines in public, but there must be a good reason to carry it.

When sailing, and especially when instructing novices, I carry a knife with a larger, serrated blade with a rounded tip. If I need to cut free webbing or cordage in the event of an emergency I want a tool that will do the job quickly. While travelling to and from the sailing club my knife is put away in my sailing bag with the rest of my kit.
