Laws on age limits, purchase and sale of knives and swords

Armament is mentioned by  The Penal Code  which they say one can be punished with  fines  and or  jail  for up to 6 months if you join  knife or objects suitable for use in a public place .

The prohibition does not apply to knives or tools used in connection with work, outdoor life or other worthy purpose, e.g. a. as part of national costume. The Pentagon recommends a clearer knife in a work context with the police, as they have the opportunity to test the situation and seize things they consider weapons.

The law says little about the age limit on knives other than that pointed and egged weapons over 25 cm. shall have a 16-year age limit. We believe this is not enough, and operate with two age limits and a duty of identification. 

16-year limit for the purchase of a knife under 25 cm in the store. 

18-year limit for the purchase of knives with blade lengths over 25 cm, swords, softguns, air weapons, copy weapons and antique and flowered weapons. 

18-year limit for ordering on our online store, no matter what! We check your name against skattelister.no to be able to document your age. If we do not find you, you will be asked to send a copy of your ID by email. (Date of birth and photo MUST be visible)

In the shop, you must show identification or what about a guardian over 18 if you are not old enough. 

You as a customer also have some rights. All bookings are covered  the Consumer Purchase Act , and should make sure you get what you pay for. Customers also have a 14-day full right of return on products purchased via the internet, fill in  the right of withdrawal form  and send according to  the terms of purchase .
