Bladed Weapons/Jeep Axe

Recommended Posts

A thought crossed my mind yesterday about the law regarding carrying bladed weapons around, on your person or on your vehicle. Then I thought, hang on, I have a huge bladed weapon on the side of my Jeep!

 

Would a vehicle axe come under the VCR bill or any other laws?

Yes... (& no... depends on the copper).. not to sure about axes (a Tool) but definitely machetes, I've heard of MV owners being advised to remove them until they get to the show ground...

Travelling from Poole to Normandy 2004 jobsworth made everybody remove all tools before being allowed on the ferry.

We might just have been unlucky as the group we were with had been many times previously with no problems, perhaps the terrorist threat had just made this character go a bit OTT. Perhaps it would be better to store them out of sight, the other problem could be if the French take exception to them, they seem to make up the rules as they go along and can be very unpredictable, might be wise to check before you go.

we just wont take them degsy, they have all been donated by retired woodmen and farmers, had one nicked at a local show last year looks like we will have to start chaining them to the lorry :-(

Last time I tok mine on a ferry the little security man came up leaned on the wing, making me wince as he had all sorts of buckles on his kit , and said 'Got any weapons?' I just said 'No just tools', and he walked away. 'They' do seem very nervous about jerrycans though, I just leave the lids up when going on to the dock and rattle them if asked.

Unfortunately nothing is safe these days, I've had stuff nicked when my back has just been turned for a minute, if it's not bolted down some lowlife will nick it. I think you are very wise not to take tools like that to France, especially when they've been donated it's not just the financial value.

the axe that was stolen was a rare type so i think the low life scum that took it knew what he was taking as everything else was untouched
