So, once and for all, can I carry a Leatherman Wave multi-tool on my belt without fear of being nicked?

Shooting legal advice
DAVID FROST
Small wonder even the policeman is baffled as the law is not easy to understand.

I’m not familiar with this particular tool but provided it has a folding blade less than three inches long there is no problem.

If the blade is more than three inches long you must be able to show a good reason for having the tool with you.

Good reason includes paunching rabbits, gralloching deer, gutting fish and all the odd cutting jobs on the shoot.

Any knife with a blade longer than three inches should be removed from your belt or the car when you don’t actually need to use it.
