Odd, Ebay permits sales of knives. Maybe there was something wrong with the seller?
From Ebay site
Knife listings are generally permitted on eBay, with certain exceptions:
Switchblade knives with a blade over 2 inches are not permitted on eBay. A switchblade knife is defined as any knife that resembles a pocketknife with a blade that can be released automatically or by use of a trigger. Other names for switchblades include spring-blade knife, snap-blade knife, gravity knife, and butterfly knife.
Knives disguised to look like a harmless item are not permitted on eBay. These items include but are not limited to belt buckle knives, lipstick case knives, air gauge knives, and writing pen knives.
