The Impinda slip joint

With the exception of two Al Mar gentlemen's pocket knives, I only have lock blades. This may become my UK pocket knife?

Quote:

IMPINDA, ZULU: FOLD, REPEAT

Our vision was to make a modern slip joint and to do it well. One with sleek lines and a functional blade for the outdoors. And so smooth it clocks open, but closes safer than your grandfather's jack-knife. Introducing, the Impinda: a Reeve/Harsey slip joint made to cut, fold, and repeat.

IMPINDA $450

Our vision was to make a modern slip joint and to do it well. One with sleek lines and a functional blade for the outdoors. And so smooth it clocks open, but closes safer than your grandfather's jack-knife. Introducing, the Impinda: a Reeve/Harsey slip joint made to cut, fold, and repeat.
Balancing pressure

As a slip joint and non-locking knife, the most important part of the Impinda is the relationship between the blade and spring. The Impinda manages pressure at every point of contact, using a differential spring pressure. The balance creates a smoother opening, safer closing, and positive engagement in the fully-open position.

Designed by William W. Harsey.
Manufactured & engineered by Chris Reeve Knives.

IMPINDA

BLADE
Material: Crucible S35VN
Hardness: 59-60 RC
Length: 3.123” (79.324mm)
Thickness: 0.1211” (3.076mm)

HANDLE
Material: 6Al4V Titanium
Thickness: 0.125” (3.175mm)
Length: 4.012” (101.905)

OVERALL
Length: 7.144” (181.4576mm)
Weight: 3.38 oz (95.82 g)

CONSIDERATIONS

The Impinda uses a spring to manage opening and closing. It is a non-locking knife with a blade length that will work in most places with strict knife laws.

Basic laws on knives

It’s illegal to:

sell a knife to anyone under 18, unless it has a folding blade 3 inches long (7.62 cm) or less
carry a knife in public without good reason, unless it has a folding blade with a cutting edge 3 inches long or less
carry, buy or sell any type of banned knife
use any knife in a threatening way (even a legal knife)

Scotland

In Scotland, 16 to 18 year olds are allowed to buy cutlery and kitchen knives.
Lock knives

Lock knives are not classed as folding knives and are illegal to carry in public without good reason. Lock knives:

have blades that can be locked and refolded only by pressing a button
can include multi-tool knives - tools that also contain other devices such as a screwdriver or can opener

Banned knives and weapons

It is illegal to bring into the UK, sell, hire, lend or give anyone the following:

butterfly knives (also known as ‘balisongs’) - a blade hidden inside a handle that splits in the middle
disguised knives - a blade or sharp point hidden inside what looks like everyday objects such as a buckle, phone, brush or lipstick
flick knives (also known as ‘switchblades’ or ‘automatic knives’) - a blade hidden inside a handle which shoots out when a button is pressed
gravity knives
stealth knives - a knife or spike not made from metal (except when used at home, for food or a toy)
zombie knives - a knife with a cutting edge, a serrated edge and images or words suggesting it is used for violence
swords, including samurai swords - a curved blade over 50cm (with some exceptions, such as antiques and swords made to traditional methods before 1954)
sword-sticks - a hollow walking stick or cane containing a blade
push daggers
blowpipes (‘blow gun’)
telescopic truncheons - extend automatically by pressing button or spring in the handle
batons - straight, side-handled or friction-lock truncheons
hollow kubotans - a cylinder-shaped keychain holding spikes
shurikens (also known as ‘shaken’, ‘death stars’ or ‘throwing stars’)
kusari-gama - a sickle attached to a rope, cord or wire
kyoketsu-shoge - a hook-knife attached to a rope, cord or wire
kusari (or ‘manrikigusari’) - a weight attached to a rope, cord, wire
hand or foot-claws
knuckledusters

Contact your local police to check if a knife or weapon is illegal.
Good reasons for carrying a knife or weapon

Examples of good reasons to carry a knife or weapon in public can include:

taking knives you use at work to and from work
taking it to a gallery or museum to be exhibited
if it’ll be used for theatre, film, television, historical reenactment or religious purposes, for example the kirpan some Sikhs carry
if it’ll be used in a demonstration or to teach someone how to use it

A court will decide if you’ve got a good reason to carry a knife or a weapon if you’re charged with carrying it illegally. << Thought Police, You're screwed

They say one thing, but it is painfully obvious that they do a lousy job of implementation and enforcement.

That would be a scary situation. I think there should have been a dozen bullet holes in the glass going outward.

I hope they add the Harsey script logo to the production knives.
