    "Shopper Steve Gale in Farnborough, Hampshire, found one of the coats on sale for £59 in his local store, The Sun reported today."

    That would have been at "Farnborough Gate", round the corner from where I live! :lol:

    Infact, that pic was taken outside of it too..

    Who the fuck comes up with the idea of making a jacket with a concealed knife? What the hell?

    Before you all get tabloid outrage I would like to note that these coats come from Switzerland and are damn expensive normally. Not chav wear.

    They've got pen-knives - not fucking machetes - attached because they're outdoor wear meant for hiking/mountain-climbing. An attached Swiss pen-knife is useful in that environment.

    The pen-knife is on a short fucking chain - and anybody who has ever actually had a fight will tell you that is a liability. You try to stab - you're going to be stopped by the chain. Also a blade like that is not a shiv of choice for street-fighting. Look at its size - you can kill or seriously somebody with it either with great skill or luck. Seriously - a big sharp key on your keyring is as dangerous in a real fight.

    Who the fuck would buy a coat like this (hardly cool street wear) to commit mayhem when they can buy Adidas and carry a nasty bigger knife in the pocket. Can you see somebody smuggling this into a club? Its also not something that a real or even street level idiot criminal would buy BECAUSE you can't dump the knife easily.

    For fucks sake - the tabloids are manipulating you lot. Think it through.

    Hang about Dustek..

    As you said, they come from switzerland and are probably sold by the swiss equivalent of Millets. They shouldn't be sold by TK-Max if they are meant for the outdoors so that's why the tabloids are making a deal out of it, it's an easy story. It's like an old record collectors store selling the machete bass e.p I'm sure a load of enthusiasts would be quite outraged by it.

    Also, what kind of a dumb fool would try and sell these over here when we are in the state we are at the moment, it doesn't matter if you "cant" stab people with them, they are still being sold.. with clothing!

    Finally, do you think the street idiots have as much sense as you do, if it has a knife in it they will wear it, steal it or cut the knife out of it, because it will obviously make them look much bigger in their "gangs".

    Totally agree just another bit of scare mongering from the good ol' british press

    Any little cretin that wants to go out stabbing would probably go to his mums cutlery draw and take the biggest scary looking knife that he/she can conseal, and not bother spending a wad of cash on a jacket with a penknife on a string

    On a lighter note i wander if it comes with those gloves on a string in your sleeves like when we were younger

    2.5 inch foldable blade...

    You ever tried to stab anything with a pen-knife? The blade doesn't lock, so you're more likely to cut off your fingers than actually manage to sink the thing to anything...

    More amusing was the walking canes that they were selling a couple of weeks back, unscrew the top and out popped a two foot long sword... Think their buyers had just completely missed that they were that kind of cane, they pulled it from the shelves as soon as they cottoned on...
