The to be founded European Knife Association is a necessity because of increasing legislation and restrictions all over in Europe. More and more is restricted regarding owning, buying and carrying knives.
A knife was men’s first tool. Without knives we still were living in caves, eating raw vegetables and living no longer as 30 years.
Knives are not to be considered as a weapon but as a tool. Some people might use it the wrong way; mostly with a kitchen knife. Why restricting knives when > 99% of our citizens consider, use & collect a knife as a tool?
So we want to start educating civilians, politician and others involved. And we want to start a powerful European lobby towards local and European politician to stop increasing legislation and restrictions. Before it is too late!
