Good morning everybody,
Since I am moving to new zealand i need to look at what knives i can take with me. Ik have my standard BC (custom made, based on a ray mears knive), 2 victorinox, leatherman and opinel but also a maxpedition ferox.
I am not sure if the maxpedition is legal in NZ, the reason i think so is that the law states "
The maxpedition doesn't have a release button in the handle but a thumb-stud sticking out of the handle when it is closed, a quick flick and you open the blade (one handed)
This leads me to believe this blade is illegal, am i correct?
I'm no expert and have not looked at our laws with great detail but I do believe that spring-loaded knives are illegal over here. Your maxpedition knife with the thumb stud appears similar to a folder that I have. I can also open it with a quick flick, one-handed. You should be fine I think, but please don't just take my word for it, ask around and get other opinions. Best of luck.
