- anyone see this on the Channel 4 News? The speaker - a Mayoral candidate - said they tested it out and got the set of 4 knives within 24 hours with no age or credit card check.

Did no-one see this? Is no-one interested? One of my grandsons had a friend stabbed to death in Oxford not all that long ago.

These knives are far too available....and Amazon are selling a large range of them.

I saw the programme and I was so shocked that such weapons existed and were so easy to buy.

I googled them and they came straight up. They are apparently for killing zombies!!! So that makes sense now!!!!!

Awful to think people on the streets could be carrying them is s shocking.

P.S. I have only just seen this post Alie

Unbelievable- a nephew of mine was stabbed to death in Bristol. Knives are too freely available.

Looks as though the government is planning on doing something about it.

Should teenagers be told that zombies don't really exist?
It is easy to buy knives if you are over 18 but there are knives and knives!

Hope the government acts soon. Another 16-year old boy was stabbed to death in a London park this evening.

Isn't it against the law already though to carry an offensive weapon?

The trouble is, knives are so easily available - I hate seeing those knife racks in people's kitchens.

I can't believe these knives are being sold! shock It is horrific! They should be banned in this country immediately. Shame on Amazon!!! angry

look at this

It's incredibly awful. Has this country completely lost it senses?!

These aren't kitchen knives Ana. These are hideous weapons being targetted at mindless, stupid, individuals.

Ana Sun 10-Jan-16 22:07:02

I know that. I was talking about the availability of knives generally.

Ana Sun 10-Jan-16 22:08:05

BTW I couldn't find any 'zombie knives' advertised on Amazon UK.

If you google 'knife tricks you tube' you will see just how much of a knife culture there is in place at the moment. My fourteen year old grandson showed me. I was shocked.

Ana Sun 10-Jan-16 22:23:07

Yes, I stand corrected - wonder why those didn't come up on my search? Horrible, horrible...daren't look at the youtube stuff.
