    I have queried it, it's often sat on my desk with the blade out, or used in lessons. The concensus seems to be "we're trusted not to be insane or idiotic". Fair comment, given that we're also entrusted with CCTV, LAN, Staff data areas, e-mails and everything else too.

    Yes, the blades on mine lock. The only person who's tried to confiscate it is our deputy site manager, who is an ex-sargeant major and has a love for leatherman, which apparently is "standard issue" for soldiers? He just said (with a grin), "they're too hardcore for novices"..bless him..

    Yeah i would think the locking blade is the thing to worry about in public.
    Shame they're not non-lockers!

    yeah the lock and perhaps the blade lenth (depends on model i guess) is the issue.

    I carry a non locking slip knife all the time
