    Hi Darren, and welcome from New Mexico, USA, to our little corner of the internet. We have one or two other Aussies here, but we haven't heard from them in awhile. I like your hobbies, but am told that I'm not allowed around sharp objects anymore. <g>
    Have you read the entire series? Do you keep a GHB in your vehicle? How far is "work" from "Home"? We may have some firearms related questions to ask, if you are willing to discuss that aspect.

    Hey Kickstand,
    The actual laws are can not carry a knife without reasonable use requirement, and the police are the ones that determine what is reasonable, Hunting knives for hunting not normally an issue as you need to have a firearms license for a gun or dangerous weapons permit for bow. Walking down the street different story, a pen knife can get you in trouble but generally only if you look like trouble. It is not illegal to own most knives but there are exceptions double bladed, mechanically assisted opening, and Zombie styled knives are some no goes. Generally most the knives I make are kitchen but there is the odd hunter as well.

    Yup read the whole series, plus most of Charlie's Requiem as well.
    GHB as such no but enough gear to get me there yes.
    Work to home is only about 5 miles for me.
    Happy for any questions to be asked at all.

    I just recently learned that in the UK, people are required to buy a "TV License" if they have a television set. Does Australia do that as well?

    Hey, it's not all bad news. Licenses for blind folks are only 1/2 price.
