civilian and matriarch

Postby incubus » Mon Aug 13, 2001 12:00 am

I recently read that this knives where only sold to the "LEO". What does it exactly mean? I suppose that the civvie and the matriarch are reserved for the police, others milices and army. Their knives are really improper for the utilitary usage?

Hi Incubus and welcome to the forum- I'm a newbie here myself :-) In the US, the acronym "LEO" stands for Law Enforcement Officer. I know that both the models you mentioned are definitely available to the public here in the U.S., but the situation could be different in Denmark(although I doubt it). In many U.S. states, automatic knives(i.e. switchblades) can only be legally carried by military and law enforcement personnel. Manual openers, on the other hand, can be bought and carried by anyone over 18. I hope this helps ...
