Cutting out eBay

Change to policy regarding sale of knives on eBay.co.uk and eBay.ie

All knives except cutlery will be banned from sale on eBay.co.uk and eBay.ie.
This will impact UK, Irish and international sellers who currently list knives for sale to buyers on the eBay.co.uk and eBay.ie sites.
...However, the criteria for what constitutes a legal knife are increasingly complex, and this step is necessary to help further protect our members and provide them with the highest safety standards.

For this protection and help thank the BBC...

At least it helped me make up my mind that I needed a second Bear Claw knife and that I really ought to get on with buying a bayonet for the Lee Metford that has a scabbard...

I not sure how eBay operates but I thought the problem was American sellers shipping illegal knives to the UK. Are they able to prevent UK users buying from the US site? Why not ban them from all eBay sites or do they think it is OK for Americans to stab each other?

They probably think it makes a nice change from them shooting each other.

Bayonets will soon be banned, as a result of all those drive-by bayonettings.

Let me know what you need, and I'll gladly bring them the next time I come Over There.

The Harry Potter actor who was stabbed to death by a loon was killed with a kitchen knife. How many people have been murdered with a KA-BAR that was bought online?

Right, because kitchen knives have never killed anyone.
