    Typical. EDC knives has to be below 7 cm and not lock in Denmark. Unless they're used for an "acceptable" task, which of course lies at the LEO's discretion. But generally, fixed blade knives larger pocket knives, and locking knives, are allowed if you're going fishing, hiking, hunting, diving, or working where you need it, and you transport it -directly- from the place you used it, to you home.

    Not sure I will buy a farmer, just for woods use, but I'm tempted!

    I carry my Farmer everyday. I was close to getting the U.S. knife, but find the saw very useful.

    I second that, my 13yr old son gave me one for Christmas. For some reason I find it easier to use the back of the saw to strike the ferro rod.

    Thank you.
    blade does not lock, and I doubt it is larger than 3 inches.

    Haha.. Seems I misread what Roamer said. Thought the full length of the farmer, was the blade legth.. GREAT!

    Now I just need to locate a store nearby that sells them.

    I love mine go it new for $20. Carry it everyday, and feel lost without one.
